Lose weight with Kelloggs cereal?

Would this work? It says on the box to have a bowl of cereal for breakfast and one for lunch and a regular dinner. Lose up to 6 pounds in 2 weeks. How would it work? Just because it's limiting calories? Cereal has a lot of carbs though.?? I bought the new Vanilla Almond Kelloggs.

Re: Lose weight with Kelloggs cereal?

Basically it is a reduction calorie diet, i think like 3/4 cup is like 100 calories with 0 or .5 of fat, and with skim milk, there's not much calorie increase. Probably with the 2 meals of cereal, your looking at maybe 350-400 calories. That's just a guess by all means, so with a regular meal, your total daily consumption would be around 1000 calories. That's my guess, but yes, i've read where it is just a a reduction calorie diet. But special k i think doesn't have any fiber, so therefore it wouldn't leave you full. Maybe you can replace it with a high fiber cereal, such as Fiber One, (80 calories 1/2 cup) or even Kashi, both are which low sugar/high fiber.

Re: Lose weight with Kelloggs cereal?

It will be a calorie reduction thing but you will probably feel hungry a lot of the time and it wouldn't provide all your other nutritional needs like protein, fibre, vitamons and minerals. It would be better than skipping breakfast and/or lunch but you can achieve the same results and get your nutritional needs by eating normal healthy food in moderate quantities and counting calories.

The fine print probably states this will work "along with a calorie controlled diet and regular exercise", which means that you are doing all of the work anyway.
