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

Does this actually work?

Out of 763,082 DietBetters, 93.76% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 12,044,981 lbs and won $62,263,235. In other words...yes.

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

Hi everyone!

We want to create some 4-week Kickstarter games based on certain diet types to join together like-minded individuals in a place to share recipes, workouts, and other fun information specifically for that diet! We want to know what diet based games you would want to see!

Hi everyone! The game officially starts, well now. You can weigh-in until day 14 of the game, although I don't recommend waiting that long, since the game ending date won't change! If you have trouble, please email us at support@waybetter.com and we will help as quickly as we can!

I'm Katie, I'm a referee here at Waybetter. I'm a mom of two young boys and live in the NC mountains. I had gotten very close to my goal weight back in the fall, but then my father fell ill and I've stress eaten my way back up a substantial amount. SO while I'm not playing in my own game, I know the struggles!

I'd love to hear from you all. This game does not have additional prizes like some of my games in the past, so I'll be able to focus on really interacting and supporting all of you.

So - Who are you? Where are you from? What have you found that works for you as far as healthy weight loss, and what are some struggles? I really, really want to hear from you. The more active the game, the more fun and success everyone has! I'm happy to answer any questions you have about myself or the Dietbet process as well.

Hi, I am Katrina, a 36 y/o mom of 4. I lost almost 50lb 3.5 years ago doing Beachbody and dietbets. But since starting a job as a brand new nurse for my midlife career change, I have not been exercising or eating the best and have started trending upward on the scale again. I dont like where I am headed, so trying to get control again in the right direction. My biggest struggle is the schedule with the new job and my anxiety has me wanting to eat and all my cravings!

I see a lot of fellow moms and people who lost and gained back. It's hard to focus on ourselves sometimes, and definitely hard to get back in the swing of things. But you've got this!

Proud to announce that instead of sitting on my butt and watching March Madness I went to the gym and watched while getting a cardio workout

  • Great veggie bowl for dinner, teriyaki sweet potatoes, edamame, veggies over cauliflower rice. So good!

  • Hey, everyone, hope your day is going well. I did a 21 Day Fix workout and walked my dog, hope you think my shirt is funny, might be from just before your time!
