In one week I gained 3lbs.
In my disgust I got all enthusiastic about finding a new diet and said I was going to enrol for a Rosemary Conley class on Tuesday. No, wait, my real mistake was telling Janet I was going to enrol.
Today she asked me if I was still going and said she'd see me there. 'We can have a contest!'
I fear this is one contest I am destined to lose. Even when I really stick seriously to diets I never lose more than 1lb a week and it just drops off Janet. Phrw, can you hear me sighing?
But to get back to Special K.
In Sainsburys on Saturday I was browsing through cereals. I used to buy Frosties for Younger Son but he was feeling righteous and decided he'd have Special K instead. (However I noticed this morning that he put 2 heaped teaspoonfuls of sugar on his low-fat cereal!) Then I remembered our lodger who isn't dieting and would probably prefer something other than cardboard for breakfast so I thought I'd see what the options were.
I picked up the Rice Krispies box. Thanks to the handy little guide on the front I discovered that although Rice Krispies have 1 more calorie per 30g serving than Special K, they have less sugar and fat! Furthermore Bran Flakes have fewer calories than either!
That's marketing for you.
