When I worked at a grocery store (we also sold clothing and home furnishings, too), there was this sale coupon. It was if you brought in proof of purchase for 6 boxes of Special K, and your old pair of jeans, you got a new pair of Levis jeans for 30% off. Basically, it was the 'Special K' diet with the notion that if you replaced 2 meals a day with those Special K cereals or snack bars, you would lose a pants size.
Well this was years ago, before I was Primal or health conscious (poor college kid), so I went on that diet. I didn't lose or gain any weight, I just became hungry. Hungry all. the. time. And I was only allowed to one bowl of Special K with fat free milk, or one Special K cereal bar. I guess the diet was supposed to starve you and give you enough carbs to keep chugging through the day? A week later, I went back to eating real food.
Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.
