How was Captain Janeway week for me?

So how did the Captain Janeway themed diet go for me? It was great! I was hungry, but it was fun too. I lost a lot of weight, some of it briefly, got a haircut, and got some of my clothes ironed too. Fantastic!

  • Beginning weight: 222.8 lbs.
  • Day 4: 215.2 lbs. This makes me either doubt my scales or wonder if I was wearing something especially heavy the first time - but still, great! We'll see how it is at the end of the week, perhaps somewhere in between, which would be fine.
  • Ending weight: 213.2 lbs

Day 1:

I make porridge (oatmeal) for breakfast. I have 3 boys to feed, so I can't make it all horrible, but I tell them what I'm doing, and they think it is hilarious, watching with great enthusiasm as I add cinnamon (which I hate) to mine, along with raisins (not keen either). I manage about 6 spoonfuls out of hunger before finding it too disgusting to go on. I make myself a litre of organic cafetiere (French press) coffee, put on some square heeled shoes, and stride around like a captain. The kids love it!

I make us all toast with a tin of mackerel for lunch. I wonder if it's possible to add too much Sriracha sauce to that? Turns out it is! About half a centimetre all over the toast, and my face is sweating. The kids think this is the best diet ever. 'Do we have to do it too? Can I try some? Is it as hot as that ghost chili sauce?'

Janeway Coffee Quotes:

  • There's coffee in that nebula
  • Coffee. The finest organic suspension ever devised... I beat the Borg with it.
  • If I have another cup of coffee, I'll jump to warp
  • Listen to me very closely because I'm only going to say this once. Coffee. Black.

English: Cute coffee.

Enjoy! This coffee appreciation page is part of my Captain Janeway inspired diet week. It worked well for me, so good luck if you're trying it! Black coffee helps to increase fullness without adding calories, and also reduces appetite, according to recent research: Does Coffee Reduce Appetite? .

Let’s all Diet like Captain Janeway this week!

Like the crew of the Starship Voyager, I have a long, long journey ahead of me... So my first week's diet challenges are inspired by Captain Kathryn Janeway.

Captain Janeway is my personal favourite of the Star Trek captains, and still one of the greatest female leaders I've seen on TV.

Join me - we're going to need a LOT of good coffee!
