In the beginning
This story started when I was dating my wife. She has always been an organized planner and she meal plans. I mean, to the penny meal planning. She’s very good at it, but she hates it. Not to mention how big of a time suck that meal planning really is. To make matters worse, she did not know at the time, but she was dealing with IBS. She was still trying to diagnose and work around all of the things that she knew made her sick. Add in me, who is a type 2 diabetic and no meal plans get really hard. Since I do some programming at my day job, I told her that I could make her something to help her with it. Then, life got in the way and the project lay dormant for a couple of years.
Fast forward a couple of years
We got married (big win for me) a couple of years later. I was on the couch one Saturday morning doing some reading while my wife was struggling with the weeks meal plan. Excuses over, time for me to get moving. I started to program a solution for her problem, and while I did it, started thinking about all of the other people that are in a similar situation. I then thought, why don’t we offer this to everyone? Tricky Gut was born. From that point on, I was programming with the idea that this was going to reach beyond our home and into the homes of as many people as possible.
Where we are now
Today, we are in what programmers call beta. It isn’t ready for launch yet, but it isn’t that far away. We are working with our testers to find all of the problems we can and get it ready to unveil to the world. We are putting the finishing touches on the product so that it can be released with great success. If this seems a little one sided, it’s not. Our testers get our service for free during testing and we get their great feedback. Everybody wins! We still have room for more testers. To become one, head over to our signup page.
