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

  2. How we prevent cheating +

Does this actually work?

Out of 867,924 DietBetters, 98.69% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 15,677,759 lbs and won $62,263,235. In other words...yes.

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

  • Welcome to our 5th Annual Thanksgiving Afterburn Challenge! We are excited to welcome those who are participating in their first DietBet, those who have done this before and those who have joined us in previous DietBet games. We welcome you to our community and look forward to helping you achieve your goals! We are big believers in creating a community around those who wish to live a healthy lifestyle. We are available for your questions and we will be encouraging and supporting you along the way. Just a friendly reminder that if you would like to be part of our weekly drawings, you must post in the newsfeed. While this can be as simple as a comment on your day, we would much rather see you asking questions, encouraging others and sharing your joys and struggles with us all—after all, that is why we are here. :)

    PRIZE SCHEDULE! Each week, we will draw a random winner from those who have posted in the feed. Each week, posts must be made between 6 a.m. CT on Mondays through 6 p.m. CT on Sundays to be included in the week's drawing. We will then post the name of the winner each Sunday by 9 p.m. CT (unless otherwise posted). The winner will receive a $10 Amazon.com gift card! A person may win only once during the duration of this game. Prizes must be redeemed within 48 hours of the game ending.

Don't be discouraged by the small number of participation prior to the event starting. Last year, we had HUNDREDS join after the first day of the DietBet. Remember, people have until December 13 to join. ☺️

Here is a peek at the numbers from last year. Let's top it this year!

$21,150 in the pot
846 players
403 winners
4,874 lbs lost

REMINDER! Bonus prize drawings are activated at 300, 500, and 1,000 players.

The game has begun! Lose 4% by your final weigh-in, and you'll be a winner.

To stay extra accountable, you can weigh-in unofficially or submit progress weigh-ins. Pro tip: when you participate in progress weigh-ins through DietBet Membership, you're entered to win bonus weekly prizes! We're here to give you whatever helps you stay motivated, and remember that only official, Referee-approved weigh-ins determine who wins.

Good luck and have fun!

My first diet bet! I really want to end the year feeling good and getting my activity back on track. Do we weigh in every week?

If you purchased a membership you can win prizes by weighing in weekly. Otherwise you only have to weigh out at the end, but weighing in will help you to see your progress :)
