Special? I dont think so
For those of you who don’t know what it is, let me explain....
I'm sure you have seen a box of Kellogg’s Special K before, right? Well, the Special K diet is quite simple. All you have to do is get one of those boxes of cereal and eat a bowl of flakes for breakfast and lunch everyday (and yes this includes weekends).
Sure, you are allowed to snack, but only on fruit and special K bars. Thankfully, at night you are allowed to eat a normal sized dinner.
Why am I on a diet? Well, I gained a tiny bit of weight over the last couple of months and I wanted to try losing it. I’m NOT a chubby girl at all, but I don’t want to let extra weight stay on me for too long. I know how much I like to weigh and I want to stay that weight for as long as I can (preferably forever)
The Boyf is also doing the Special K diet with me. I am not enjoying it, but since I was the one who suggested we both do it - I have to try stick to it. Kellogg's claims that you can lose up to 3 Kg (or 6 pounds) in just 2 weeks. So, we are going to try do it for 2 weeks (and only 2 weeks) and see what happens.
My thoughts so far:
After just one week on the diet I have found that -
*the diet is VERY boring
* I dont think I have lost any weight yet
* The Boyf doesnt seem annoyed by it
* eating flakes all the time makes me cranky
* the mere sight of a box of Special K makes me crave a big juicy burger with fries *grins*
* The berry Special K bars dont taste too bad
* Kellogg's really exaggerated when they used the word "special" on the box
Oh well....I’m going to try not cheat this week and then I will let you know if the "Not-so- Special-K" diet worked for us.
Ps - If you have tried the Special K diet before Id love to hear if it worked for you OR if you just have nightmares about bowls of flakes now??
