    Have you thought about doing a vlcd (very low calorie diet) such as Lighterlife or Cambridge?
    These sorts of diets are there for quick weight loss as long as you have the will power to do them!
    And surely your surgeon doesn't really expect you to drop from 22st-14 in just 3 months,that's pretty much impossible I think. If you feel that weight is too low for you then have a chat with the surgeon and tell him that's not an achievable weight for you.
