  • I LOVE special k red berries, and although I never tried the actual diet I have compared the nutrition facts to a ton of other cereals and this one is by far the best. Plus, when I started eating is every morning instead of bagels and other breakfast foods, I did lose a few pounds without trying the full diet :)

  • I tried and couldn't do it! I just don't have the willpower. The bars were ok, my fav cereal was the red berries one, then the chocolate.

  • I tried it.. but i started craving REAL food on like day 2. lol.. I love cereal and bars but having that be just about ALL you eat.. i couldnt do it.. I also had the things you put in the water.. I had a strawberry Special K one.. it was gross.
    I love their cereal alot but i can only stick to it like for breakfast or maybe a snack at night.. not EVERY meal!

  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library: http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals
