Diet Road Test Result!
Last week saw me road test he My Special K personalised eating and exercise plan.
Variety: Huge variety of foods. The My Special K site asks you to personalise your profile, which I did, and it gave me a weeks worth of menus (as well as a shopping list) which made life very easy. The kids and the lovely husband and I all ate off the menu and so all ate the same, which was great. This meant we deviated from our usual fare, which was great for all of us - I was nicely surprised at some of the really interesting meals that the kids happily ate. The foods and meal plans are low calorie, wholesome, non-processed choices. A wide variety of all foods.
Ease: Easy to stick to, easy to eat.
Did I have to eat nothing but Special K? Nope. Any wholegrain low fat low sugar cereal would do!
Exercise? Yes, daily. (I did two gym sessions and a swim and walked the other days.
Hunger levels/feelings of deprivation? None. I did fancy a glass of wine on Saturday night, so I had one. This is probably the only time I deviated.
Results: I lost 1.4kg (And yes, I am happy about that!) and 8cm all over.
Would I/Could I stick to it? Yes
So there you have it!
