00-Diabetiquette

It makes me feel ridiculously special when someone asks to be a guest blogger on Diabetiquette or asks me to review an article or product of theirs. It is almost as though what I say matters.

I’m just kidding, it obviously matters. Just look at my huge Facebook following!

Well, a website called SlimKicker found me and asked if I’d like to try their new product next year, but first would I try the website?

slimkicker.com

Ah-ha, yes I would. 

I’ve tried online nutrition counters in the past with mixed results and I am more than thrilled to try this one! 

Also, look at the logo. Would I like to “level up my body”? 

I might not be entirely sure what that means but if it gets me anywhere closer to looking like the female (and albeit less Aryan) version of Daniel Craig’s 007–which is not natural–I’ll do it.

As of today, I have begun.

I logged on to the website and registered myself. It asks you for your main goals and how you look now. It also promised that they’d never show anyone (you know, other than the team of market research people who are busily looking into your demographics).

Then you choose your diet/fitness goals. It let me choose to be a “just a normal” person which is just one of those things that makes me laugh. And by laugh I mean grit my teeth, but at least it was my choice.

Next, it tells you your results. Apparently I should be eating 1200 calories a day. That’s reasonable.

But, 75 carbs? Chunk that sucks. I think I eat like 45 carbs for breakfast… this is not looking good.

Later it asks you start adding the foods you’ve eaten during the day.

It gives you points (toward your reward for good behavior) just for adding foods but it does make fun of you a little for what you eat.

I added my typical soda and potato chip breakfast and got this message:

Well this is awkward.

I don’t know if I’m ready to commit to that.

As far as the SlimKicker website goes, it’s too early to tell. I’m going to keep plugging away and hit you back in a few weeks with the prognosis.

  1. As yes, another great idea. Should I follow it or should I not? I’ll be interested to hear/see how you do.

    Remember, a great idea isn’t a great idea unless someone else agrees with it. So, let’s see…

    You go, girl! Watch out, Daniel Craig.
    Level up with SlimKicker sounds like a contact sport, but product-testing seems like fun. Eager to read your next update, Abbi.
