i have been doing this diet for 5 years on and off, it works as it is a drastic change to your normal diet. i lost over 2 stones in the past 5 years with Special K and it is not bland there is such things as sweetners and if you swap normal milk for alpro soya its a smooth creamy satisfying taste! it fills you up and keeps you going till dinner time, my only problem was not having that extra bowl before bed! tip: do not measure the cereal just have a normal size cereal bowl i don't believe...

I dont think this is a wonder diet and you should not do it for too long but it always works for me. If I feel I am eating too much I do this in the week (not at weekends) then after the two weeks I swap to salads for lunch. The diet just really kick starts my need to eat less without having to think too much about food, I always lose between 5 or 7 pounds in the first week, I make sure I drink lots of water and eat fruits and vegetables.

I tried this diet just as a taster to see if it made any difference to my weight so i could review it to other people. I found that the taste made me feel ill after a while because the cereal to me tasted dry and very bland so matter how many other flavours i tried none of them suited me. I tried adding fruit e.t.c but it still tasted quite plain. It didn't fill me up enough and found myself half the time looking for food.
Before this diet i had porridge instead, once in the morning and... (read more)

I had been eating Special K for just over a week and was significantly underwhelmed. I couldn't continue it because it left my stomach extremely bloated and uncomfortable. Unless you want a stomach full of gas, don't eat this cereal! Opt for a genuinely nutrituous breakfast (e.g. porridge, natural yoghurt with fruit)that's not going to leave you feeling like a big bloated hog. (read more)

When I took up the Special K two week diet, I stuck to it religiously. I even kept a diary of what I ate and how much I exercised each day - and I did exercise a lot. Throughout the whole two weeks I lost 1 pound and I think this was probably more to do with me watching what I ate, denying myself that extra chocolate bar and getting my lazy self off the couch and onto the wiifit.
That's not to say the diet doesn't work. As I discussed with my friend, my BMI is just over 25 and I often used... (read more)

Been on the diet for 1 week and have lost 3 pound!!! very pleased, I believe the reason you loose weight is purely because you are eating less calories and it is very controlled. I do not think however this is a diet to follow for more than 2 weeks as you do need variety in a diet! It has definately stopped me from snacking all day long though, which I believe to be the reason I put on weight anyway. I do exercise daily but if you are eating more than you are burning it will make no... (read more)

i tried the special K diet for just over a week, i was planning to do it for the whole 2 weeks but after the first week i stepped on the scales and had actually put on 2lbs. I could not believe it. I had stuck to the diet well a bowl for breakfast, one for lunch and a healthy dinner, for snacks the only thing i had per day was a bannana or a low fat youghurt. I have no idea why i put on weight but i stopped it there and then, i am now eating healthily and going to the gym and have lost a few... (read more)

Just started today but must say so far I feel very hungry not having a normal lunch but just a banana and a bowl of Special K with fat free yoghurt.
Not sure if I can sustain it. Takes time to get used to it I guess. Hope to loose 1 stone. The taste is good, better than other cereals.
Don't like cereals with milk much so use fat free yoghurt. (read more)

I tried this for a while and ended up with Iron deficiency. I am not sure the cereals have all the nutrients they claim on the packet. It is a convenient way to diet. But if you are young and planning to start a family this is not good. I have now gone back to eating normal diet in moderation ofcourse with excercise. (read more)
