I have to agree with Almeeker on Grape Nuts. When I was little, I thought they were roasted grape seeds. It's what they look and taste like IMO. I also agree on demonizing high fructose corn syrup. It's over processed, over sweetened foods IN GENERAL that are bad, not corn syrup in particular. Corn syrup is cheaper than sugar, so food manufacuturers use it when they can to cut cost, period. Nobody debates the merits of cane sugar vs beet sugar, why is corn sugar any different?

As for the Special K diet, Slim Fast, or any "meal replacement" plan, I think they all suck. You learn nothing about how to live healthy for the rest of your life, these plans end eventually, and you gain all the weight back because you haven't learned or changed a thing. Not to mention feeling deprived and starved while you're on it.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?
