The team that brought you the chance to get fit by punching Justin Bieber in his pretty face has returned, this time with an app that keeps tabs on your diet in terms your brain -- which it calls "puny"-- can understand.
Hilariously damning clauses, to-the-point graphics and a robotic voice make dieting about as fun as it could get.
Because the app doesn't sugarcoat anything, it informs you of just how long you would need to exercise in order to burn off that last piece of pizza or glass of chocolate milk.
The app allows for fast food logging with its bar code scanner, and its proximity warning tells you when you are approaching your calorie limit for the day.
Sticking an iBeacon sensor in your fridge will prompt the app to remind you to log whatever you're planning to consume from it when you open the door.
Exercise logging is essential to keep your avatar from getting chubby.
If you're thinking about cheating, remember that Carrot will send a humiliating tweet to your social media contacts.
