I have been asked by the clients who know that I have tested the Special K diet -
does the special K diet work? To be honest, I only managed to do the diet for 5 days.
Let’s get real here! The diet is boring!
The diet is ancient! If you are in your early thirties or older, you probably tried
the Fibre Diet of the 80’s. The only difference between that diet and the Special
K diet plan is that the Special K diet plan will give you a normal meal a day. This
diet is impossible to maintain, and as with any fast and fad diet, the pounds will
pack back on once you go back to your normal calorie intake.
The next problem with the diet is the cost. Do not kid yourself that this diet is
free! Don’t hold back on buying a sensible dieting ebook just to save money! You
are eating Special K products all day long! If you compare the price of munching
Special K all day, to eating fresh fruit, vegetables and a bit of protein you will
find that the Special K diet plan is very expensive and the boxes will fill up your
pantry and your desk at work!
You have to give the marketers at Special K a pat on the back for this though! With
the amount of people who are prepared to do anything to lose weight, their marketing
idea of eating and eating and eating their product is a good money making strategy,
but it is not good for your pocket.
The physiological effect of this diet is also questionable. The snack bars a very
high in processed sugars as are the cereals. Without going into the medical facts,
one fact is very important to note.
Have you ever wondered why you eat a whole box of chocolates once you have just one?
Eating sugar makes you crave sugar. You eat one Special K bar, and you’ll want another
within half an hour. By the end of the day, you will have eaten a whole box of bars.
As a dietician I am always keeping my eye out for the latest dieting trends and I
always follow the diet plans myself to see how my body feels and to analyse the effects
nutritional and physiological effects the diet has on me.
I attempted the Special K diet for the stipulated two weeks, and here you will find
my Special K diet review.
If you are reading a Special K diet review, then you will already know what the
special K diet plan is, because it is very simple.
How does the Special K diet work? Eat Special K, eat more Special K and then snack
on Special K! On the Special K diet plan you can eat one normal meal a day, and they
advise you to make this meal as full of fruit and vegetables as possible. You can
also drink normal beverages.
Does It Work?
If you follow this diet for two weeks, then you will apparently lose a jean size.
But wait, let me rant a moment more! Where is the exercise plan? I would never recommend
undertaking any diet plan unless it also includes an exercise regime to compliment
it, and I do not mean being told to exercise for 30 minutes a day. You need a full
exercise plan to motivate you and to burn off more calories than you are taking in.
My advice to you with the Special K diet Plan and in answering the question does
the Special K diet work? Don’t do it.
Choose a diet which will offer you a full variety of food as a guide, and one which
always includes an exercise plan.
There are plenty of diets in bookstores and libraries, or buy one online because
they are generally cheaper and you get more. Look for diets which offer a free trial,
where you can get started and pay later. Lastly, enjoy your food and enjoy your life
