ummm... that is terrible advice. What's left to eat other than meat, which will not make you thin. If you go by this you won't have a balance in your nutrition, which is has a bigger impact on your weight and health than avoiding carbs. Brown rice and whole grains are great parts of your diet. Plus they help you feel full. Legumes are also a huge nutritional source and they add protein.
Eating less is really a great way to start. Eating nutrient rich foods and limiting fat, processed foods and sugar.
I think you're really cool Bens77 but I just have to be facetious.
There's this new-fangled thing called vegetables and fruits (and seeds and nuts)! They have heaps of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Replace everything I listed with a veggie dish and you will definitely lose weight faster.
Some extra comments to that tho. No dried fruit, no salted nuts or seeds, and every day eat more veggies than fruit.
Legumes.... For one thing they have some funky chemistry and secondly it's quite surprising how many of them actually have a very high carbohydrate content with only 10-15% protein.
I think what most of you guys are ignoring is that this dude is off to the beach in a month and he wants things to go faster than they are now.
Oh, and one thing more. Cutting out very carb-y foods can give you something usually referred to as the low-carb flu. It goes away on it's own. Google it.
