Special K Diet
The Special K diet is a quick fix if you want to lose around six pounds in two weeks. You can supposedly achieve this by eating Special K cereal with skim milk and fruit for two meals each day. You want to choose one of Kellogg’s Special K cereals and eat with 2/3 cup of skim milk and some fruit for breakfast, and then again for either lunch or dinner. You will do this everyday for two weeks.
If you get hungry in between meals you may snack on fruits and vegetables. Eating skim milk with your cereal is a great way to lose weight and it will also add calcium into your diet. Eating breakfast on a regular basis aids in weight loss. For your third meal of the day you can have your choice of foods as long as they are low fat and nutritionally balanced.
