There are plenty of things in our lives that make use feel bad about our bodies, from the numerous celebrity magazines to our own family and friends.
Yet now there is a new weight loss app called ‘Hey Fattie’ that is designed to insult you in an attempt to help you to lose those excess pounds.
Apparently not only will the fictional anime characters prey on your insecurities but as you lose the weight you will be ‘lucky’ enough to date one of the guts onscreen.
This app is designed by the game makers Creative Freaks and Visual Works, with the app based on the male version Nenshou! With just one major difference.
Unlike the male version where the women will offer encouragement and compliments the female version seems to believe that the only way to get results is through abuse.
Now I am not saying that sometimes you will need that little push in the right direction, we have all seen how the trainers on The Biggest Loser push the competitors, but simply abusing the women is surely going to lead to even bigger body anxieties.
I would not encourage anyone to download this app, unless you love to feel bad about yourself.
To lose weight there are plenty of other methods you could use that wont ruin your already low body confidence.
For a start making healthier food choices will help. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and also increase your intake of lean protein like chicken or turkey.
Protein is essential for any healthy diet as it can help keep you full, will keep your energy levels high and can build muscle if you like to workout.
Next you should make sure to drink plenty of water each day, around 8 glasses should suffice.
Water is important for removing those excess toxins that prevent weight loss, and it can also help to prevent food cravings.
Finally to lose weight and keep it off long term you should really think about doing a little exercise, just 3x 30 minute workouts a week can make a huge difference to your body.
