NEW APP CARROT FIT THAT SHAMES YOU INTO LOSING WEIGHT – There appears no end to the number of Apps that developers come up with; Apps for finding a parking space, Apps for organising your diary and yes now, an App to help you lose weight and if you don’t it’ll ridicule you for it.
I don’t see the problem, there again I’m 5’ 5” and come in at 130lbs soaking wet and that’s not bad considering I’m approaching 50 years of age faster than Neil Armstrong left Cape Canaveral.
I’ve always been slim and I guess it’s just down to my genetic make-up. On the other side of the coin I have a friend who is just 2 inches taller than me but weighs in at a whopping 298lbs.
Poor fella only has to see a cream doughnut and he’ll put on 5lbs or so… I guess we’re all different but considering how he struggles keeping his weight down I certainly feel for him and anyone who is overweight and struggles on a daily basis.
The new weight loss App is called Carrot Fit and is yet another sadistic way to basically shame people in to shedding the pounds.
The App works by allowing users to input their weight and then receive judgement from the ‘Carrot Overlord’; yes a sadistic AI that will openly ridicule anyone who is over their ideal weight.
It’s not all bad for if you do manage to lose weight then the Carrot Overlord will lavish you with praise in an attempt to motivate you to lose just a few more pounds.
The Carrot Fit App is the brainchild of Brian Mueller from Pennsylvania, U.S who states that it is designed to threaten, intimidate and ridicule fat people into losing weight; and all for just $1.99.
Whilst Carrot Fit’s Overlord certainly does ridicule those who gain weight it also encourages those who lose weight to work harder; it even rewards those who lose a few pounds with workout tips and advice.
The description of the App may not be that appealing to everyone, especially if you are overweight; it simply states… “Carrot is a sadistic AI construct with one simple goal: to transform your flabby carcass into a Grade A specimen of the human race. She will do whatever it takes – including threatening, inspiring, ridiculing, and bribing you – to make this happen. You will lose weight – or else.”
Anyone purchasing the App will be able to track and monitor their weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) in order to monitor their overall progress.
According to the developer weight loss is tracked and can be shared among friends who use to the App so that they can each monitor one another to provide encouragement.
If you are one of those who struggles with their weight this App might not be a bad idea and it does allow you to set your own goals.
The App is expected to have future updates including features that Brian Mueller describes as ‘Deathmarch 5K and the 6 Minute Workout.
In the near future the App will get upgraded to include a calorie counter to help people monitor their intake.
The only thing I can possibly say is that I’m thankful I’m as thin as a stick but as with my friend I certainly have empathy for those who fight the weight battle on a daily basis.
If you are trying to lose weight then don’t give up; maybe even try the App… who knows it might just be what you’ve been looking for. You can purchase Carrot Fit from iTunes
