TwoGrand: the Instagram for losers
Don´t you ever get tired of people posting pictures of their food on Instagram? Then try out the application TwoGrand. It is especially designed for losers: losers of weight. The application for iOs and Android is created on the claim that weight loss accelerates when updates and the process is shared with friends.
Peter, the brain behind TwoGrand, thought of the idea while he was talking to his friend. His friend and he had roughly the same activity pattern: they worked out together and spent time at the office together. However, Peter’s friend was 35 pounds heavier than himself. His friend told him: ‘From now on, I am only going to eat what you are having, because it will certainly be better than what I am eating.’ A light bulb appeared above Peter’s head and TwoGrand was born.
Peter realized that there are millions of people who have a health routine that works for them. Why not help them share it with the rest of us? TwoGrand helps you follow people who are at your goal weight, people who have the same goal weight, and people that are roughly at the same weight as you are. You can easily log your activities through photos or just a simple piece of text. TwoGrand is competing in an existing market of fitness applications. Apps as MyFitnessPal and MiCoach are popular as well, but TwoGrand adds a new feature to the weight loss facilitating programs.
TwoGrand is the first to actually make it possible to follow others based on several metrics, not only the one’s mentioned in the previous paragraph. After creating an account, a series of simple questions is asked about your eating habits and activity pattern. When you have completed this series, you can find people that ‘match’ your answers! So if you’re a vegetarian, exercise 3-4 times a week, are female, like swimming, and have children, you can find several weight loss buddies to follow who are in the exact same situation as you are. So if you are looking for inspiration and like pictures of healthy food, try out TwoGrand for a change!
