    has anyone tried this? it's when you eat two bowls of special k or crunchy nut cornflakes for two meals a day (as part of a balanced diet of other food too). i'm thinking it would would, as cereal is healthy and i'm guessing because its filling it will prevent u eating other fatty junk. apparantly you drop a jeans size if you carry on with it for 2 weeks.
    also does anyone know if it will work with other cereal, like corn flakes or muesli? crunchy nut is quite sugary and fatty compared to other cereals due to the nuts, but then muesli is too, corn flake sis the best i suppose. thanks

    It only works if you're over a certain body mass index. So if you want to go from a size 12-10 or something it won't work

    oh, hmm...but surely its a good diet anyway, because i'm vegetarian i'm supposed to drink lots of milk, and the cereal is nutritious.

    really? but i'm always checking the nutritional information at the back of packets, and cereal does provide you with lots of vitamins and minerals. do u mean becuase of calorie content?

    a number of my frinds had tried this and say it doesnt wwork. to be honest, any filling starchy, high carb food would fill you up and stop you snacking.

    high fibre foods eaten with alot of fluid swell and pass through the body without being digested. they usually tend to be low cal. so i think replacing the spaecial K with eg all bran or weetabix, or plain brown toast would work as well if not better.

    but if u want something low cal which fills you, try porridge with skimmed milk- not this 'readybrek' or 'oatsosimple' crap but put the milk in a pan, add oats, heat until soft and sludgy. you prob will stuggle to eat one whole bowl. this is the best dieyt food for people who get hungry. if u think it tastes gross add cut up apple or babanana

    It says in very small print on the back of the box that it only works properly if you are overweight as in a BMI of over 25...

    I did the special k diet a while ago, I'm nowhere near 'overweight' but I'm bigger than I'd like to be. I didn't lose weight as such but I did notice loss of inches
