Welcome to The Skinny Bee!
We offer a unique selection of kitchenware products specifically designed for people on a diet. We specialize in weight loss, but our products are equally at home for those simply looking to maintain a healthy, sustainable diet.
We understand diets and we understand dieters. We know first hand just how emotionally draining it can be.
Our goal is simple- to help you be healthy and happy. We achieve this through our tried-and-tested, easy-to-use kitchenware, as well as fostering a supportive community of like-minded individuals.
So, if you’re looking to kickstart the New You, you’ve come to the right place.
"Fall Seven Times + Stand Up Eight."
Chances are, if you're reading this, this ancient Japanese proverb probably describes you pretty well. Here's why...
We were founded in 2019 by an English man named Dominic.
Like many of our customers, Dominic has struggled with weight issues his entire life, and has gone through multiple periods of weight gain/loss. Having put on around 50% of his bodyweight, he was able to drop 65lbs to reach a healthy weight through a 25-day juice cleanse. (Link to blog.)
However, this success came only after many (we're talking dozens!) of failed attempts to lose weight. After a while, Dominic started to ask himself what was going on. We won't bore you with the details (here... check out our blog for more info), but each diet looked a little something like this:
Day One: Let's do this!...
Oh Sh*t, I feel like death....
Why is this so hard?....
I can't do this.
Ahh, the familiar taste of failure. So often overwhelming, it can easily spiral into depression, in turn feeding negative thought patterns and behaviours.
Diets require an intense emotional involvement, and so often we take anything less than perfection as a crushing blow to our sense of self-worth.
Realizing this, Dominic saw that much of his failure was due to emotional and physical fatigue.
And yet, if there's one thing common to all dieters (yes, I'm talking to you) it's their absolute refusal to quit in the face of adversity.
It takes a special breed of person to repeatedly experience failure and happily pick themselves up for another round in the ring.
At The Skinny Bee, we believe that people are far stronger than they give themselves credit for.
A Brand Is Born
Emotional fatigue can be greatly minimized by automating many of the laborious tasks associated with maintaining a healthy diet. A few simple tools are all that's required to free your mind and make losing weight a genuinely enjoyable and rewarding process.
Hence, The Skinny Bee was born.
We value simplicity, community and, above all, emotional well-being.
We're located in Vancouver, BC, Canada and we currently ship across the USA. We'll be expanding to Canada and Australia in early 2020 and hope to add more locations in the coming months.
