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 2 photos: one of you standing on a scale in lightweight clothing (no shoes, hats, belts, watches, coats, or outerwear), and another of the scale’s readout with your weigh-in word written on a piece of paper.

What you'll need

  • A scale (preferably digital)
  • A digital camera or smartphone
  • A full-length mirror or someone to take your photo

Hi All! I see we have concerns over the payout for this game. I can totally understand and will run down the math with you. It's very common for games with higher bet fees to have a significantly lower payout percentage. Players work really hard not to lose their $100!

There was $4,900 in the prize pot, minus our 20% fee= $3,920. $3,920 divided by 39 winners= $100.51 per winner.

If you are new to DietBet, I would suggest checking out games with lower bet fees and more players. A good game for me to demonstrate this with is a game which finalized yesterday- FATGIRLFEDUP'S FEDUP FALL FIGHT BACK. There were 9,324 players, $30 bet fee for a total pot of $279,780. Winners received a 78.5% return of their initial $30 bet fee. The payout for that game was $53.56.

Another game that we can look at for comparison has a lower payout than the one mentioned above but also finalized yesterday. Syd's Spooky Strong Squad DietBet! $$PRIZES!! There were 1,153 players, $30 bet fee for a total prize pot of $34,590. Winners received a 36.8% return of their initial $30 bet fee. The payout for this game was $41.05.

I do want to congratulate everyone, even if you didn't quite reach your goal Making better choices for yourself for a month is pretty awesome! We have lost 378.8 lbs as a group and that is amazing! I don't want us to lose sight of this success. A big congrats to all!

I also want to congratulate Jayne who is our $50 Amazon Gift Card winner. Please keep an eye out for an email from me. It will be arriving within the hour. :)

I played both games. I find wanting my $100 back to be more motivating than winning $20. But that’s just me!

Congrats to DietBet, this is by far the most smooth and elegant scam I’ve ever seen.

  • This math makes no sense! 51 cents isn’t possible. If only one person didn’t make it and DietBet takes the maximum 25%, that leaves $1.56 to each of us. This game didn’t have weekly prizes or anything. Can someone help? Sounds fishy to me

Hey if any of y’all wanna pay me to lose weight I’ll guarantee at least 61 cents to the winner!

Thanks but no thanks DIETBET.

Jairo A.

Where did you get the info of how many ppl made it MamaDaniJ? Because if what you say is true then it’s even worst, we were accounting for $1.56 if only 1 person failed, so that means the less winners there are the smallest the payout? At least for the winners. Because DietBet gets more and more and more.

This was my first DietBet game and to be honest I’m quite disappointed, 51 cents is not worth the time I put into filling those journals and taking those proof pictures.

Lauren I did lose money, even tho I won DietBet chargers a $5 membership to let us play, so I lost $4.49Jen and StevenSteph, yes for many that the ultimate goal. For me it wasn’t, I lost over 100 lbs about 2 years ago and I did it without any of these, after some unfortunate events in my life I gain most of the wait back because I stopped trying. So I can lose it all over again (it is very easy if you really set your mind to it) without this extra motivation, so my main hola here was to make money, I’m already losing wait on my own so I wanted to get money. That’s all. So I agree with you guys that losing money is “worth it” if you lost a few pounds, it’s just different for me I guess.

Jairo A.

Wait I just realized you might be agreeing with me StevenSteph and not with Jen like I initially thought, based on your comments you are right about the math not adding up. Something is very fishy about all this.

Since the payout was about the same as the bet, did everyone win?

Diet bet takes 25% but the math still doesn’t really work out.. if even one person didn’t reach the goal, that’s 100$ to split 48 ways, minus their 25%, so 75$ to split 48 ways.. is 1.56$ each. It’s only a dollar difference but it doesn’t seem to make sense.


  • Exactly!!! There is something wrong with the math! It says they take 10-25%. If they took the max and only one person lost there should be $1.56 each for the 48 winners

We must have all done well this time, which is great. On my last $100 the payout was around $120, so this one was a disappointment, but I feel good that everybody succeeded.
I don't really like the idea of winning money on the backs of people who failed in their goals either.


How is it possible to have this amount when there were only 49 of us? If one didn’t make it and DietBet takes 20%, that leaves $80 for the 48 of us to split. There were no pot prizes in this group right?

I had to re-weigh all day but I made it by the skin of my teeth.... way too stressed out.
