Dear Jenny
The Special K diet is reasonably balanced and should not cause any deficiencies. If you stop using it and start eating a diet that contains more energy than you use on a daily basis then you will regain the weight you have lost. So by all means use this diet to kick-start your weightloss but use a low-fat diet and exercise as part of your maintenance regimen to ensure that you don't regain all the weight you lose.
