Has anyone tried the Special K diet?

I am thinking about trying it and was just wondering if anyone has tried it and got good results from it? Thanks in advance!

  • Tried it for a couple weeks, and I did lose a couple pounds. But I was also *always* hungry so I abandoned it after a couple weeks because it was too monotonous...special k all the time!

  • I tried it years back and lost 80 lbs in a year. I also was running 3 times a week, but, I did get good results from it. Good luck!

  • When you go on a diet, or use a diet aid, you are just putting yourself on the gain/loss rollercoaster; frustrating for you, & hard on your body. In order to get to and maintain a healthy weight, you need to have a healthy lifestyle; this has the added bonus of setting a great example for your kids.
    Start with regular exercise, as simple as walking, for at least 20 min a day at least 3 times a week. Next, drink your water! at least 8 8oz glasses a day. Now, eat your fruits & veggies! 7-8 servings a day, in at least three different colors. Eat your whole grains (loaded with fiber, protein, and lots of energy-giving nutrients), 6-7 servings a day. Cut way back on (or eliminate) meat & dairy. Add beans, lentils & tofu to your diet. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big salad before meals
