The special k diet is not hard to follow. You just replace two meals of the day with a bowl of special k. Keep in mind that it is based on a person eating three meals a day. Special k also has snacks that you can eat including bars and juices between meals. Now please, don’t eat two bowls of special k and then pig out on cheese fries and double cheeseburgers as your third meal and expect to see results. Go to specialk.com for more details on the diet. Good luck.
