For years now we’ve been watching the harsh tactics of fitness moguls like Jillian Michaels who insist on all-or-nothing attitudes. Now you can experience the insults, embarrassment and torture firsthand with CARROT Fit, the “judgmental weight tracker.” The hilarious motivational health and fitness app tracks your progress towards a weight-loss goal, offering comic relief on the way. The app that makes losing weight less of a drag is available for $1.99 on the Apple Store. But be careful and don’t say we didn’t warn you that “when CARROT gets mean, there is a 74.9 percent chance that she will make you cry,” according to the app description.
