Did any one try the Special K diet and have successful results within a few weeks?



I need a diet plan that will give me results within 4 weeks. I was on one a month ago and in 3.5 weeks i only lost 4 lbs :( I ate healthy and exercised everyday.

I talked to my doctor about it & she told me that Special K does not make loose weight. Specially those bars they have. She says they have more sugar than soda does.

No, that shits horrible for you it has a ton of sugar in it. Losing weight takes time, there is no quick fixes that will last.



Work out and eat healthy - no processed foods and no complex carbs after 2pm.

It works off calorie counting. Same as slimfast. You replace meals with bars or shakes or bowls of cereal that contain a specific number of calories, then eat additional meals/snacks that are supposed to be specific calories, to give you an overall count of about 1200 usually. Sometimes 1500.



It's really simple. Does it work? Sure, if you stick to it. Is it that healthy? Not really. Think of all the good fruit and veggies and whole grains you could have for those calories. Think of ALL the extra nutrients you could get for those calories. Think of all the fewer preservatives and junk.

Also, 4lbs in almost 4 weeks is normal. You need to work on not expecting a huge number or change. 1-2lbs a week is normal. Even .5 a lb a week is normal. So 4lbs in just under 4 weeks is slightly above a lb a week.



I know it's hard, but the slower you lose weight the more likely you are to keep it off because you're making lifestyle changes. Crash diets just typically don't stick.
