The Thing about Diet and Fitness Challenges

Diet and fitness ‘systems’: there are apparently thousands of them out there from the well-known (Weight Watchers and Atkins), to the fads (vegetable soup diet), to the utterly ridiculous (every diet pill ever).

The thing is, the same system doesn’t seem to work for everyone, with some getting awesome results while others gnashing their teeth in frustration when the scale doesn’t budge even a pound. The problem isn’t even with the system itself, a lot of them are probably quite good, the problem is with the people doing them: everyone has a different personality that is better suited to a different plan.

For instance, I can’t seem to stick to any plan that involves me giving up a certain type of food (bread, carbs, meat, etc) because that requires too much effort what with meal planning, not cooking your usual recipes, and having to really dissect the menu when you’re eating out. Or it could be because I’m secretly still 6 and just can’t stay away from something that I have been told I can’t have. Tell me I can’t do something and you better bet your tail feathers I’ll be doing that exact thing within the hour.


So yes, diet and fitness systems are great and amazing and seem to give some people awesome results, but only if you manage to stick to the letter and the law for as long as it takes. Half my problem is of course that I am too fickle with any system I try to follow. I tried doing the 30-day no-soda challenge which lasted all of 6 days.


Out of 30. To be clear, the challenge was only asking me to give up coke/Pepsi/etc. for a month, nothing more. Apparently, I’m more addicted to coca cola than I thought.

Ok, so maybe I need to aim lower and try something that doesn’t require a commitment for a whole entire month. Fine.

I tried the 7-day vegetable soup diet. I can last 7 days, right? A week isn’t that long, right?

It lasted 2 days.

How about the 3-day detox diet? 3 should be easy peasy, I won’t even notice 3 days going by!

It lasted 4 hours.

4 H-O-U-R-S.


Has anyone heard of any 3-hour diet plans I can try my hand at? I’m sure I’ll manage to stick to that. I’m sure I won’t be totally breaking my diet 9 minutes into the challenge… right?


Have you ever managed to stick to a diet or fitness challenge? Which one do you like best? Are you on a diet right now? Can I interest you in some ice-cold Coke?

How much fits in a raw challenge cone?

The raw challenge cone is a complex geometric shape. It looks like an incomplete cone with two sharp ends and a flat bottom. The apex of the cone has an angle of 90 degrees, edges make up 90% of the cone and the bottom has a depth of 10%. This can be solved by centering the whole object on one point and centering each edge on that point.

A raw challenge cone is a useful tool for designers, who want to create an ideal user experience for their clients or for new users. The cone helps designers to visualize the user’s journey and constraints at all stages of the interaction. It also helps them to find a solution that fits the needs of all users at once. In this article, we will introduce a raw challenge cone in this context and show how.
