How to Lose Weight in the Zombie Apocalypse


Zombie toilet sticker from Amazon UK

Anyone seen the new series of The Walking Dead yet? I love how far Carol has come, from the intimidated wife of a bully to a strong, independent leader and rescuer of others, and with great explosions too.

Back in my less apocalyptic life, I lost 2.8lbs with my 'Walking Dead' diet, just by pretending the shops were all looted and empty. I'd have lost more as one of the characters, but I'll take it! And I kept my head 🙂

Beginning weight: 215.4
Ending weight: 212.8

I'm also pleased with how much this week's diet saved my wallet!

So, how did my zombie apocalypse diet week go?

It wasn't bad at all. I thought I might need to find out how to make bread, but we had burger buns left in the freezer from my son's birthday party.

There was some powdered milk involved, which was fine in cooking and coffee. I also found out how to make a vegan egg substitute for cooking by mixing ground flax seeds with water (I know, weird that I didn't have eggs but I had that!)

So, How Can We Ruin Our Food This Week?

This week's diet is inspired by Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager drinking coffee and being a terrible cook 🙂

So, how can we ruin our food this week? (Tweet this!)

Here are some tips to get started - post yours in the comments!

Food-Ruining Ideas I've Tried:

  • Cover it in hot sauce - tried this, the kids thought it was hilarious
     
  • Drop it on the floor - toddler did this, what a helper!
     
  • Burn it - yep, thanks toaster
     
  • By the way, if you drop a teabag in your toaster you'll soon be wondering which of your neighbours hosts dope-smoking parties (and, perhaps, so will they...)
     
  • Make something you don't like anyway - mustard greens, anyone?
     
  • Leave it to go soggy (cereal etc) or cold - well that tends to happen around here anyway
     
  • Add spices you don't like - ugh, cinnamon (I know I'm swimming against the tide here but I really don't like it!)

 
(Ruining my food actually worked out very well for me - I wouldn't do this for a potluck, but see my Captain Janeway diet review here)

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!
