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
  1. Privacy FAQ +
  2. How we prevent cheating +

Does this actually work?

Out of 755,696 DietBetters, 93.76% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 11,820,002 lbs and won $62,263,235. In other words...yes.

All results shown on DietBet are from actual users. Individual results may vary.

Don't take our word for it

  • Good Morning! Congrats to all the winners :) I, myself lost by 1lb and ended up hitting my goal this morning lol! If that happened to anyone else too you are not alone. Don't let this bring you down! Keep going because if we give up we will never progress.

    A big congratulations to our winner of the most generous liker: Chrissa! Please email me for your special prize: sydneytrrs@yahoo.com.

    Our next game starts on Friday for anyone that wants to keep the momentum going! There will be more giveaways, prizes, and most importantly support :) ! Link below:

    Like every game I host, I would like for us to introduce ourselves: Your name, where you are from, what your goals are for this DietBet game. I’ll start: My name is Sydney, better known on Instagram as @syd_journey and I’m from San Diego, California. I’ve been playing DietBet games since January 2018 and so far I have lost 78 pounds. I’m hoping to reach my goal weight by the end of 2019! I’m excited to be your host and I hope you all enjoy our game!! Let’s lose some weight and win some money!!

How do we receive our winning payments? I haven’t seen mine come through.

Your game has now been finalized. Congratulations to the winners! You earned a 38.4% return on your money simply by investing in your own health. Don’t you wish all of your investments paid out at that rate of return?

The $41.52 in winnings will be deposited as points into your account. They can be used for a new game, or you can request a PayPal payout and treat yourself–you earned it! Payouts process within 24 hours. As promised, here are the top player titles. Drum roll, please…

It's hard to eat right when you're living with someone eating chips in bed! So now we snack on carrots! Love him 💗" by Jennifer E.

Barely made it...had two games with weigh out due today. Fasted and did one weigh in, but somehow forgot this one. Just saw a reminder in my email...had 28 minutes Left! Weight is up, but I’m still under. Whew!
