Hello, and welcome to Club Adipose, where eating less for sci-fi is better than just eating less.

If you’ve ever wished the Adipose Industries‘ weight loss plan from Dr Who was even a little bit real, this is the place for you. 🙂

Join me as I diet my way through the sci-fi universe with a different inspiration and diet each week.

Have a look at some of my weekly sci-fi diets here.

So, Who am I to make up Diets?

I’m just someone who’s tried so many, and thought, “why not experiment and make it fun…”

Most of my sci-fi diets have worked about as well (for me!) as officially published diets. Some have really surprised me. One was a disaster. One improved my health so much in other ways that I shouldn’t have overlooked it just because I gained a couple of pounds. On most, I lost a small amount. Mostly, I gained it back. As always. But I’m convinced there is a way to make progress.

I’ve lost 70lbs before, and I know the difference is worth it.

The important bit: I’m not a doctor, a nutritionist or a dietician, (so don’t take anything on this website as a substitute for informed professional advice). It is purely for entertainment purposes.

But neither am I one of those people that go on about being fat when they just want to lose ten pounds and look like they did as a teenager (as if!).

I’m a geek culture fan, and I’ve been more and less overweight for the last 20 years.

But not this bad…
Still more Leia than Jabba The Hutt

I’ve tried a lot of diets, and I’ve found the one that works: it’s ANY of them, IF you can stand them for long enough.

So that’s my plan: to try them all, for a week at a time, which is about as long as I can stick to most of them anyway.

And I’ll keep up my motivation by switching them around and distracting myself with inspiring characters and challenges.

I’ve got a long way to go, with around 70lbs to lose. But on the bright side, I’ve done it before (with the help of a colicky baby that time), so I know how much better everything feels when you’re carrying 70lbs less around with you.

Also I’m tall 🙂

I’ll be posting each week’s diet plans and challenges, and blogging about how I get on with them.

How about you?
Join me, and let me know how it works out for you. Send me ideas to try! I’d love to hear updates from someone else trying this, or your own sci-fi diets!
