My brother sent me a link to a really interesting concept. Have y’all heard of this new app, Rise?
It’s pretty fascinating to me. Essentially, it’s a nutritionist in your phone.
You sign up and tell them what your objectives are and they match you up with a few people they think will be a good fit and you chose based on their background, coaching styles, etc. They then give you a plan and some suggestions to follow to help you meet your goal. You take a picture of what you’ve eaten and write a little description. “Your” Nutritionist reviews it and gives you feedback. There’s no tracking, counting, etc. It’s $48 a month.
My thoughts are that it’s a bit pricey at $15/week and I’m not sure how I’d feel about feeling constantly judged by someone viewing my intake. I honestly can’t see myself submitting a picture like this.
Wtf is the margarita?
I’d probably just be like, “NOPE. Didn’t have dinner. So sorry.” And then jesus, between Holidays, football, parties and events – my Nutritionist would surely think I had MAJOR problems if I were to submit these:
My description would be, “Three Super Size Cups of Bad Life Choices. No food.”
Honestly, for some people I could see this being a trigger that would encourage them to engage in sneaky eat in hiding. I know it’s counter intuitive, but so many people that struggling with dieting and weight loss have the mentality of “if you don’t see me eating it, it doesn’t count.” In fact, I know a certain someone that used to have the “if I eat it before the fridge door shuts, it doesn’t count.” I would undoubtedly pick and choose what I shared with my e-Nutritionist and then undoubtedly be angry with her if she questioned me. I can already tell she’s a bitch.
I have mixed emotions. If I didn’t have such issues with eating and had 10 or so vanity pounds to lose, I could probably handle it. Aside from this, it’s a little too big brother for me, currently. I’d feel judged and hate that bitch of a Nutritionist they’d assign me.
So, could you do it? Would you spend the money?
As for me, I think I’ll stick to my Intuitive Eating.
