Elastigirl Cling: The Incredibles Collectible This week’s diet, in the run up to Thanksgiving, is for that most overstretched superhero mom of all, Elastigirl from The Incredibles.

What better way to celebrate the Rosetta Comet Landing than with a diet inspired by its most likely inhabitants? So let’s try the Clangers diet!
Diet Review: ‘Fight Fat After Forty’. Ever feel like you were just 25, and then suddenly you were, well, older? I think the new Doctor Who could relate…
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 […]
Who would try the PBS Diet? Giles from Buffy of course! Was it just me who wished Giles would swoop in like a not-so-silver fox and claim the plucky Buffy?
Well, I thought I’d managed to avoid it, but here it is: the ice bucket challenge! So I was thinking this week should be ‘The Naked Now’ week, since they were frozen and taking cold showers in their clothes. I can’t recommend ‘take so many drugs or get so sick you forget to eat anything’! […]

Ever wished you could eat like a hobbit? (Tweet this!) This hobbit-inspired week is an experiment: Can I get away with a bacon and mushroom sandwich for second breakfast (ok, lunch) every day if I walk far enough to get to Mordor and back? What you’ll need: A pedometer, or smartphone app, that measures how […]
As a dieting Dr Who fan I’ve always liked jelly babies, so Weight Loss 4 Gummies were impossible to resist. So did they work? A little bit. Here’s my review
Could the pounds go away by themselves? With the Adipose, ‘The fat just walks away’. But so does everything else. So, I’ve heard good things about Alli…
Happy 4th of July! We are inspired by Captain America this week! And since I learned from ‘Captain America: the First Avenger’ that his metabolism is four times faster than normal, that is what we are aiming for this week 🙂 No need to join the army (unless you’re in it, of course), be in […]
This week’s diet choice is inspired by ‘Alien’, and it’s Adele Puhn’s 5 Day Miracle Diet. Five days of the Miracle Diet, five Alien movies: Coincidence? Hardly!
