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 242,434 DietBetters, 92.92% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 2,561,495 lbs and won $10,328,898. 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!

Five years ago, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Thyroid Cancer. After two surgeries in two years and the removal of my thyroid, my weight continued to increase. I finally reached 199 and vowed to never see it top 200. My doctors offered me little hope of being able to lose weight as I am still struggling to stabilize my thyroid levels through medication. Over the next 3.5 years I tried Weight Watchers and every fad diet known to man, with little to no success.
After I retired, I started going to the gym and attending water aerobics classes 3 times a week. Still I was not losing weight, but it felt good to start moving and exercising. One day I picked up an issue of First Magazine. In it was an article on weight loss and it mentioned DietBet. I was intrigued. I felt that winning money and not losing any that I invested could definitely motivate me. I joined my first DietBet at the same time I found an amazing personal trainer at the gym. I had been reading about all the workouts everyone on DietBet did in the activities section of my game. I couldn’t believe it when after 1 week I actually lost almost 5 pounds. I was hooked, I couldn’t wait to work out and post it in my DietBet, I started really watching what I ate, worked out 6 days a week and did weekly token weigh-ins. I won a weekly token weigh in prize. Then I won money on my first Diet Bet game. I then joined more games, won more prizes and more importantly lost weight.
DietBet works! It is a combination of the incentive of wanting to win money and not wanting to lose contributed money. I like the camaraderie and encouragement on the activities boards of my fellow DietBetters, and I love winning the token weigh in prizes. I would tell anyone thinking of joining a DietBet - DO IT – IT REALLY WORKS. Joining a DietBet gives you the incentive to eat better and work out. You can’t help but lose weight. While it sounds trite, I mean it when I say if I can do it anyone can. Thanks DietBet for helping to give me back my life and feel better than I ever have.

I'm a busy wife and mother of two teenagers. My struggle with weight goes back to the birth of my second child, prior to that I was always slender. When I started my first DietBet I was at my heaviest weight ever of 191.4 at 5'1". I had a dreadful year - I stopped working out, ate whatever I wanted (including my feelings), and gained almost 70 lbs.
The first DietBet got the wheel rolling and I've been working on it ever since. I'm down almost 60 pounds as of right now, hopefully by the end of this DietBet I'll be down a total of 65 pounds. I'm focusing myself on my fitness goals; I'm training with my best friend to run a half marathon distance in the spring. I've got lots of obstacle course races in the works for this year. It's not a DIET; it's a lifestyle.
DietBet inspired me to get a group of friends together and do similar challenges through the past year and a half. My favorite things about DietBet are winning, the camaraderie and the pressure to succeed and maybe inspire others to try a little harder.

I'm a stay-at-home mom to two kids less than 3 years old. I have struggled with weight and body image for years until recently it clicked and I've been on my way to great weight loss and fitness. I recently trained for and completed my first ever 5K run and this is a big deal to someone who previously could not run at all - any distance. DietBet helped jump-start this progress and I've had a total loss of 60 pounds over the past year.
I first tried DietBet because it sounded like a good challenge. I thought while it was aggressive for me to lose the 4%, the possibility of winning some money was a good motivator and it was. My friends and family joined in and we were all able to support and motivate each other and win a little money.
If you are thinking of trying a game give it a shot! I've done it multiple times. The first time I didn't reach my goal and I didn't feel so great about it so I vowed to keep trying and make sure I hit my goal the next time, and I did.

I am a wife and mother of one. I have always tried to be athletic and enjoyed sports but this last year my weight just kept creeping up and up. I play roller derby and I want to be a leaner athlete. When my BMI reached the obese level, I freaked out. I have always been slightly overweight, but never obese. The scale almost hit 200 pounds in December so I knew that I needed to make drastic changes and resolved to do so.
I’ve never kept up with weight loss attempts in the past for more than a couple weeks. Usually it was skipping meals and not healthy at all. I’ve tried gym memberships, but then the excuses start flying and months go by without going. This time I set myself up with work outs I could do at home, took ski lessons, and signed up for roller derby pre-season to ensure I got my butt off the couch.
I first joined a Facebook group workout challenge in January. They mentioned on their wall that they were hosting a DietBet so I went and checked it out. The idea of putting money down and betting on myself to succeed just made sense. If I have money on the line, I won’t creep back into my bad habits. It’s amazing what the thought of losing “easy” money will do to a person. I felt that I had no reason not to win my bets and I worked hard and surpassed my goals.
DietBet worked for me because it’s all about the money. I don’t want to lose my money. There’s nothing more satisfying than betting on yourself and proving you are capable. My favorite thing about DietBet is how easy it is. Also, there is lots of motivation from other players. I find interesting recipes and workout ideas. There is always a lot being shared to help you succeed.

I have always been a little overweight, but after having my first child I gained 40 pounds and was never able to get back to my starting weight. I tried everything from pills, fad diets, starving myself, juicing, and simply working out and eating healthy.
I follow Jillian Michaels on Facebook and she was promoting her DietBet. I decided to read more about it and I fell in love with the concept. I joined immediately and was excited to begin the journey. DietBet worked for me because I was determined to get paid and lose weight. The bets were simple. I had to lose 4% of my weight in 28 days. It sounded so do-able. And it was! Knowing that I had a deadline helped a lot. Weighing-in regularly and seeing where everyone else was on their journey helped me as well.
My favorite thing about the games is that they are fair. It is not about who loses the most but who accomplishes their goal. DietBet really helps with accountability and you get paid to lose weight. It can't get better than that. To top it all off you have a community of people with the same goal as you.
