Been on the diet for 2 weeks now and feel much healthier. The diet has stopped me from snacking (which I used to do a lot) and I now look forward to my 'proper meal' at dinner time more than ever. I didn't weigh myself as I planned on working out daily (but been too busy!) and would have gained muscle weight anyway so it wouldn't have been a fair test. I measured my waist last night and am going to go for another 2 weeks to check the results this time. All in all though, i do feel good for... (read more)

I tried the special k diet as I was 9st 11 and I am only small in height this was way to much. I started on January 2nd for two weeks, I had my main meal with meat and loads of veg and fruit and the two snack bars. I was hungry for the first few days but at the end of the two weeks I had lost a stone. I am going to start it again soon as I still need to loose another stone so will see how I go. (read more)

Hi everyone I've been on special k diet for 2 months now, i've been having crunchy nut instead of special k and have lost 1 stone and 5 pounds upto now. I think this diet is great, I find it really easy to stick to as iv'e swapped having 2 special k snacks for low fat yoghurts and low fat chrisps as it equals the same amount of fat and calories and I prefer them to the special k snacks. Iv'e tried most other diets but this one seems to work really well for me. I didn't have alot to loose... (read more)

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)

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.

I have been taken kellog's special k for 3 days and i have found that it causes me to feel a lot dehydrated and tired!! so i have come to know that it only causes the body to lose its water content thereby giving you a pseudo feeling of being lighter and that is all.
