  • I did it, it wasn't really that great. I still always felt hungry. It's just not a very filling feeling diet. Plus, you don't really lose that much weight. Personally, I am having much better success doing the Slim fast diet.

  • I haven't done the Special K diet, but I ate cold cereal every day for breakfast for about a month at work, because I was broke. I actually did drop a few pounds and felt really good. I preferred cereal with some kind of granola clusters in it though.

  • The Special K diet is basically a meal replacement. This means you'd eat or drink this and NOT have a meal. This doesn't have to be used with Special K. It can be done with any meal replacement drink, bar, or cookie. I drink a SlimFast Optima Shake for breakfast because I'm always too busy to stop and eat. If I was to replace my breakfast AND lunch with a meal replacement the weight will come off easier. Why? I'm not subject to a lot of unneeded calories and fats you'd find in everyday food options.
