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!)

Return of The Walking Dead: Best Diet for the Budget?

A Zombie Apocalypse Diet for the return of The Walking Dead

“Walkers!” … “Stop spending money!” …
Rick gets masterful again in AMC’s The Walking Dead. Although not like that.

Here it comes, every prepper’s dream: the Apocalypse, in Walking Dead form, returns in October. I can’t wait! (And no, we won’t be eating brains!)

How is Baby Judith still alive? Will Beth be reunited with Darryl, and what about Carol? Will Rick keep it together much longer? Will Glenn wish he still had his photo? Will Carl find more chocolate pudding? And above all, how will they ever get out of that shipping container and escape the world’s creepiest barbecue?

And what diet could be inspired by this…?

A ‘Walking Dead’ themed Diet Week!

The apocalypse has been and gone, and in a diet timed handily for that week when there’s more month than money, we can all look forward to the Walking Dead by… NOT GOING SHOPPING FOR A WEEK! (Except perhaps for previous seasons of course…)

That’s right, there’s no food out there any more, and we’ll have to make do with whatever’s in the cupboards!

To be accurate we shouldn’t use the fridge either, but that would be wasteful. Luckily, in some kind of time distortion, the fridge and freezer are earlier on the apocalypse timeline than the supermarket:

(Not The Walking Dead)

So the fridge and freezer still have some fresh enough stuff to eat, along with tinned and dried food in the cupboards. But the restaurants are looted and empty, and all the supermarkets have got left is packets of matzos that they got in for the wrong Jewish holidays (little joke for my in-laws there) 🙂

I’ve been meaning to do this week for a while, but had to spring it on myself because I knew if I’d planned the date I couldn’t resist doing a supermarket shop beforehand. So I have the same kind of collection of odds and ends that most non-prepping people do. Good luck to me and to you!

PS. No cannibalism
