So now that you are all feeling good after eating those fab Nutella brownies from yesterday... how about some health and fitness for your soul! Last year I was contacted by one of the creators of a fun new app called SlimKicker. They were looking for feedback from bloggers on what they would like in a health & fitness app, and they picked me! This was the overall idea...
"So, this app will make living healthy, and fitness into a RPG game, where users earn points, and 'level up' as they achieve their goals. Every time they eat something healthy like vegetables, they earn points. Every time they complete a workout, they earn points. Each level will present different challenges.
The challenges will follow a certain structure. First will come changing your environment such as getting rid of junk food. Then, reducing stress, as stress leads to eating comfort food. Then concrete goals like keeping track of everything you eat, or taking the stairs for a week. Small, concrete goals rather than abstract ones like “be healthy” or “exercise more”.
The whole point is to create a holistic framework/game so people will rely less on willpower, and more on fun, achievement, and changing our environment."
