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 843,896 DietBetters, 98.7% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 15,119,393 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

A quick word about the payout because I see a few newbies who are a lil confused and some may be disappointed in the number.

- DietBet does take a percentage of the full pot. The info is there before anyone signs up, so hopefully this isnt too much of a shock

-Pro-tip - if youre hoping for a large additional amount on top of your buyin, try the smaller bet games with more players. Higher amount bets naturally yield more winners because people are more motivated to not lose their money. Think about it. No one wants to lose $100, so theyre gonna work their took-us off to keep it. $10 games, people might not take as seriously.

-Heres my warm and fuzzy two-cents, when we see this high of percent of winners, its a beautiful thing. That means more people hit their goals and did something great for themselves. Please do remember that these games are meant as an accountability tool, not a “get rich quick” type thing. You’ll always get your buy-in back, so worst case, you lost weight but didnt lose money.

Thanks guys! Congrats to ALL who participated ❤

I still haven't received payout, does it usually take this long?

Thank you but I have to say in all the Diet Bets and Step Bets I have ever done I have NEVER won such a small amount. Did the $500 Bonus Pot make the difference? Did that come from the total pot? If so, then these are the bets I will avoid in the future.

Dont forget final weigh-ins start tomorrow!!!

Leave yourself enough time to resubmit if you have to and save any celebratory treats till after you get your “accepted” message ❤

Thanks for playing everyone!!!

And remember, even if you dont “win” this one...any progress is STILL a win.

First time playing and I don’t understand the math for the winners payout. 19,120 pot with 369 winners should be around $51, but I’m getting just over $38. What am I missing?

$3 don’t spend it all in one place! :sweat_smile:


Beter then nothing the ones with the most players always pay the most that's why I do three at a time and I won $12 on the other one

Well I had to exercise twice today and I made it on the DOT!! I’ve not ate all day, so I hope they approve it fast. Lol

Did not make it but lost a little over 5 pounds so I'm still happy :)

Same boat here Francoise! Glad I'm learning to be proud of my efforts and move on from losses by taking what I've learned (instead of drowning my sorrows in mint chocolate chip ice cream!)

I’m over by .4 lbs 😩. Hoping that when I wake up in the morning I’ll be under.

Yes!!! Don't stress about it, get a good night sleep and I tomorrow will be a better day for you!! You can do it!!! Last night I was over by 5lbs... My period started 3 days ago, so I've been constipated and super bloated for the past 2 days... But I've been drinking a lot of water and this morning I was over by 1 pound... I drank a lot of water and finally went to the bathroom and voila... By noon I stepped on the scale and I was finally under my goal!! I knew I was, but my period messed things up...

If I just weighed in for an other diet bet that ended at the same time as this one do I need to resubmit? Or can I weight for verification and use it for the other bet then? Thanks!

If it were me i would weigh in for both to make sure i dont miss the window. But yes, after the first one gets verified you can resubmit.

You need to make sure youve physically submitted for all the games you want tho, we have plenty of players who think its automatic sometimes and it causes problems for them!
