I was asked to test-drive a new (FREE!!) weight-loss/dieting/exercise app and website called SlimKicker, and host a giveaway (details at the bottom!). For the past week, I have been having a ball testing it out!
What is SlimKicker? SlimKicker is a calorie tracking app that takes all your diet & fitness goals and turns them into a level-up game. You upload a picture of something you’ll reward yourself such as a pair of shoes, and when you reach a certain number of points, we’ll remind you to reward yourself with that. SlimKicker also has a recipe section for diets like Medifast and Weight Watchers.
