Special K cereal's sales are down 7 percent in the past two years, according to IRI, a market research firm based in Chicago. Kellogg last year rolled out "Special K Nourish" hot cereals that tout a blend of grains such as quinoa and barley. A Kellogg executive noted at the time that people are looking for nutritional benefits rather than just reduced calories.
Part of the problem: "Low calorie" foods make people feel deprived. Now, people now want to lose weight while still feeling satisfied. And they want to do it without foods they consider processed.
The calorie counting that defined dieting for so long is giving way to other considerations, like the promise of more fiber or natural ingredients. That is chipping away at the popularity of products like Diet Coke, Lean Cuisine and Special K, which became weight watching staples primarily by stripping calories from people's favorite foods.
"Regular yogurt is really thin," Pill said. "It was low in calories, but it wasn't filling."
percent drop in sales in the past four years, according to IRI. So the company introduced an "Honestly Good" line that boasts of natural ingredients and offers more generous servings at about 390 calories per box, rather than the 300 calories for regular Lean Cuisine meals.

Mondelez spokesman Richard Buino said the company is focusing on healthy snacks that are about "more than an arbitrary calorie amount."
Many top brands are trying to keep up with the trend:
"We know that while calories are calories, how satisfied you are with eating those calories makes a difference," said Karen Miller Kovach, chief scientific officer at Weight Watchers.

Weight Watchers updated its famous "Points" system in 2010 to consider the protein content of food. It also introduced a "Simply Filling" option that lets people eat from a list of "power foods" without counting points.
Frito Lay also made its last shipment of 100 calorie pack Cheetos and Doritos this past summer. The chip maker's new "ready to go" packs still have about 100 calories, but the trait is no longer advertised on the bag's front.

Executives at Coca Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. blame customers' move away from artificial sweeteners and say they're working on sodas using natural low calorie sweeteners.

In fact, Miller Kovach of Weight Watchers points to a pitfall: The belief that a food is wholesome is sometimes used to justify eating too much, she said in other words, consuming too many calories.
In the past four years, sales of 100 calorie snack packs of Oreos have plummeted 72 percent, according to IRI. Parent company Mondelez International Inc. also has pruned varieties from its 100 calorie lineup and now offers only four.
Kelly Pill has been dieting since her son was born more than 30 years ago. But the 54 year old resident of Covina, Calif., made changes to her approach in recent years. She doesn't eat Lean Cuisine microwavable meals as often because she doesn't find them that filling. She also switched to Greek yogurt last year to get more protein.
Both Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi saw sales volume fall by nearly 7 percent last year, according to the industry tracker Beverage Digest. That was steeper than declines for their full calorie counterparts.
