How do you verify the weight loss?
For all official weigh-ins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight. Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting two photos, one of you on a scale in airport security attire; another of the scale's readout with your weigh-in word.
Does this actually work?
Out of 244,176 DietBetters, 92.87% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 2,585,970 lbs and won $10,408,295. In other words...yes.

My dad's side of the family is all overweight. They have high blood pressure, weak knees, diabetes, etc. I realized that I didn't want to end up like that. My husband is in the Air Force and stays physically fit. I didn't want to hold him back from doing anything. I want to be able to keep up with him on all the adventures we go on.
I decided to try DietBet because I liked the accountability it provides. I had to consistently weigh myself, work out, and make healthy eating choices. I don't like wasting my money, so I figured this was motivation to get it back.
Diet Bet worked for me because I was able to have fun losing weight while making money. I was able to get my friends to join me in challenges and compete with others, and compete with myself. This program works because it pushes you to keep yourself in check. You can have a cheat day, but get back on the wagon to continue your healthy lifestyle.
At first I was trying to not have all of the medical problems my relatives have, then I was trying to keep up physically with my husband when we go on vacations. Now, what motivates me is the fact that I have motivated so many others. I have friends and family members working out and watching what they eat because they were inspired by me.
I won almost $400 with DietBet and used it to go on a vacation to Las Vegas for my anniversary. My husband and I had the time of our lives and it was even sweeter that the money I won from losing weight paid it for. Plus, I was able to keep up with him!

I am a stay at home Mom and my son is 2 and a half years old. My husband is in the Coast Guard and is currently part of the Gulf Strike Team so he is away for the majority of the year, off and on. My husband recommended DietBet to me after reading about it in a dietary book and he thought we could try it together and motivate ourselves. I wanted to work hard to lose weight after gaining an excessive amount during pregnancy and postpartum.
I was happy DietBet was around for me when I finally hit that drive to be a better, healthier person. I use DietBet to give back to my husband while he supports me in my weight loss. He cooks my meals and educates me about eating right and staying healthy and active. His support is what makes the biggest difference in my motivation and I use DietBet as a way to stay on track and keep myself in line with goal limits that need to be reached within a certain amount of time. And when I win, I pay him the money I won. That motivates me more than anything because I can find excuses for myself to not really need the money but it is important to me not to let him down since he is my biggest supporter and motivator. And paying him my wins helps me to repay him for all of his hard work and attention to my plan.
My favorite thing about DietBet is the timeline. Having a month to lose a set amount of weight really helps keep the motivation going. It's good to be kept on a schedule and sometimes just having that weigh-in date on my calendar alone keeps me going in the right direction and helps me make better decisions in my life day to day.
I always motivate my friends to join DietBet if they have any sort of inclination to do it. I take their interest and tell them everything I love about it and why it works for me until it snowballs in to them joining up and taking that step toward being healthy and happy. I tell them how much I have won since I started and I offer to join a game with them and keep up with each other while the game is going on.

"Why not get paid to lose weight?"
My entire life I've been over weight. My parents were the type that wouldn't let you leave the dinner table
My entire life I've been over weight. My parents were the type that wouldn't let you leave the dinner table until your plate was clear regardless of how full you were.
In 2010 I got pregnant with my first son and took full advantage of it. Eating chili cheese fries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My sweet tooth was out of control and I gained the weight to prove it, weighing about 244 at the end of my pregnancy. Once my baby was born in December I was able to lose about 20 pounds and I felt better about myself, not realizing how much extra weight I was still carrying. After having my second child I decided it was time to change my life.
I signed up for Weight Watchers and lost about 60 pounds. To our surprise found out I was pregnant with number 3. This time around I though I would be able to do things the right way but still ended up gaining about 40 pounds. That is when my cousin introduced me to DietBet. I figured money motivates me so why not get paid to lose weight! Using DietBet to pay for my monthly Weight Watcher membership I have now been able to lose 76 pounds since my highest weight ever. DietBet is an amazing way to keep motivated. You have so many people on your side with the same goals giving tips and encouragement it makes it easy to lose weight. Setting smaller 4% goals makes losing weight makes your goals achievable. Most of the time people set large goals and get discouraged because it takes them longer than they thought to achieve them. With DietBet 4% of your body weight is easily achievable in the amount of time given and you get paid for it! Why not get paid to lose weight?

I am a single mother to a 21-year-old son. I have struggled with my weight since I had my son. I finally gave into the notion that I would always be heavy. In December of 2012, my son left to serve a two-year mission for his church. Before he left, he asked me to do two things: The first one was to lose weight. He knew how unhappy I was with myself. I hated how I looked and felt. The second was to start dating. I had been so focused on raising my son and working, dating was not even something I had considered.
Skip to a year and a half later, I was heavier than I had ever been. I had suffered from depression and food was my friend. When my son left, a huge hole was left in my life. I really struggled coming home to an empty house. Around that time, a picture was posted on Facebook and I was astounded at what I looked like. When I looked in the mirror, I didn't see that fat person. I came to a pretty quick realization that I wasn't being accountable for my weight. There was always an excuse, that it was just a bad photo, that I was bloated that day, or that it was a bad angle. I would justify my poor eating by saying that I deserved the treat or unhealthy meal.
Finally something clicked in my head. I couldn't keep going on like this; I didn't want to be fat anymore. That day, I set a goal to lose 50 pounds by December 17th when my son would arrive home. I knew that in order to hit this goal, I needed to make some serious changes. I promised myself that I was going to lose weight the right way. I needed to surround myself with people who could help me and would hold me accountable. I found out about DietBet around this time. It sounded like a great idea. What better incentive than money? I have enjoyed participating in the DietBet challenges. The people in the groups are incredibly supportive. With DietBet, I am accountable for my weight, and money is on the line. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to lose weight. I have had quite a few friends and family members join with me. To anyone considering joining, I say you should do this! You can do this! Setting goals and hitting them is incredibly rewarding and empowering. I have lost 70 pounds and hope to join more DietBet challenges to lose the last 30 pounds.

I can honestly say that I feel like I’ve been on a diet for the past 14 years. I’ve always struggled with my weight but I’m pretty sure we all have at some point. I’ve completed 2 bets so far and let me tell you, it really works. I started my first DietBet in April of 2014 at 195 pounds. Currently I weigh 152 pounds and a majority of my weight loss is because of DietBet. Not only did I lose weight, but also I won a little over $300! If you are looking for a way to lose weight, DietBet is the way to go. It helps you stay accountable of your weight and more importantly lose it in a healthy way.
A friend mentioned DietBet to me and I thought it would be something that would work for me. I signed up for the long haul of 6 months and I am so thankful that I did! I saw great results and had motivation along the way. Comparison photos are a great way to see results besides just the number on the scale, DietBet does both! I started with a Transformer bet and then did a Kickstarter bet. It really helped me stay accountable and feel like I was in control of the outcome. There were a lot of members on the activity feed that helped motivate each other and some games had incentives like raffles, which was awesome too. You have the ability to lose weight and win money, what more do you need for motivation?
My favorite part besides the results was probably all of the ways to stay in the loop with your bet, so there really was no excuse. It is accessible online or your smartphone. It shows each participant what part of their journey they are at and how much time they had left. It really was an awesome experience.

"DietBet worked for me because I was committed and I hate to lose money on anything."
I am a mother of four children. I had been a stay at home mom when my children were young and a healthy weight most of the time
I am a mother of four children. I had been a stay at home mom when my children were young and a healthy weight most of the time. My second husband is retired Army who served the last six years of his service with Special Forces.
My weight gain started when my husband returned from Iraq. I went back to school to earn my bachelor’s degree. I turned to food because of the stress of assignment deadlines, desire for good grades and dealing with my husbands untreated PTSD. I was trying to be a good example to my kids and to keep my childhood promise to my parents that I would get my degree. My mother was my biggest supporter and believed I could do anything. She had more faith in me then I ever did. She was diagnosed with cancer and passed away just 9 days after being diagnosed, just a few weeks before my college graduation. I was devastated that she wouldn’t be there to watch me graduate. I focused on my studies and graduated with departmental honors. I had a necklace made that carried some of my mother’s ashes. I took Mom with me to my graduation. We walked across the stage and accepted my diploma.
I saw Chris Powell had announced a DietBet and I was attracted to it because I had seen his shows and I respected his knowledge. I needed support from people trying to lose weight. My family really didn’t care what I weighed. What I was doing was not working for me. I was older and the weight just wasn’t coming off like it used to.
Everyone who joins DietBet is trying to do the same thing, lose weight. DietBet worked for me because I was committed and I hate to lose money on anything. I was held responsible for my weight. I found that other people doing this experienced the same things I was going through like finding the time for exercise, and hitting a plateau. People were sharing their recipes and exercise plans, which are so helpful. I was able to share what worked for me. I also changed my diet. No processed foods and cut way back on the animal proteins. I am striving to become vegan. I loved the interaction with the host and other players. They were all so supportive and gave great advice. I would definitely recommend DietBet to anyone who wants to lose weight and have fun.
