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 900,422 DietBetters, 98.72% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,635,338 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

Hi all. I understand there is some disappointment with the $40 return for those who hit the goal. Considering it was a January DietBet and a lot of people are motivated , SO many people hit their goals which in turn, means a smaller payout. Which I personally think is so exciting and I’m SO proud 😭 In these games you can win a few bucks...sometimes more, sometimes less. But the accountability, extra motivation, meal ideas, having $35 on the line to lose, the community, etc is also such a huge part of it. The money is just that extra perk! Which is why I try NOT to promote my games with the money aspect being the main focus

Thank you all for being such a great group. I’m so sorry for anyone who was disappointed

January is a huge month for people getting their goals! Plus to the people complaining, y’all are complaining that others didn’t fail their goal...let that sink are complaining that not enough people failed their goal for your liking.

This wasn’t about making money! It was about losing weight. But $5 is still $5 gained! If you didn’t feel like it was worth your time, then you are losing weight for the wrong reasons.


I’m not disappointed that lots of people won, however if you look at the numbers that’s not the only issue. Dietbet tells me that 4923 of 7509 participants won, so if those 4923 were splitting the total pot of $262,815, each would get a payout of $53.39. It’s perfectly reasonable that Dietbet should take some of that for overhead costs and salaries, but if you do the math they took a whole 25% in this game, or $65,703.75. The FAQ says Dietbet takes anywhere from 10% to 25%— how do they decide how much to take? I’d like to know so I can avoid participating in the games they take more of. Had Dietbet taken only 10% I would have won $48.04. I’d love to see more transparency from Dietbet.

Congratulations all! I’m so sad this game has come to an end but SO happy for this amazing community we have built. I will not be hosting anymore games, but someone in here started up a game for anyone who wants to keep the same community of people! I will link that here!

Remember this is forever. This wasn’t 4 weeks and done. Enjoy a relaxing day and get right back to your normal routine 💖 Be so proud of all of the things you have accomplished in these few weeks. I am beyond proud of each and every one of you!

Listen people. I didn’t win a ton off money ether, but it’s about you pushing yourself to loose the weight, I got my money in and a little more, I was thrilled that I lost unwanted pounds and I got what I put in, a double win for me and I will do it again for sure !!! I’m so sorry Felicia, you were great 👍😊🙏

WARNING for anyone using Beachbody or Shakeology. I just found out Beachbody is an MLM (read legal pyramid scheme) in which 99% of their consultants fail and lose money! People above them profit off their misfortune because they got in the pyramid too low then berate them because "they didn't work hard enough!" This is so gross! Watch Kiki Chanel or Not the good girl on youtube or antimlm on reddit for more information. These are people who succeeded and are speaking out because the immorality of this "business". Please save yourself from this cult and don't give them your money, they play mind games and take advantage of vulnerable people like stay at home mom's.

You should look up Diana Moms on YouTube too. She's an ex beach body "coach" and now part of the anti mlm movement

Mitchell Y.

I like the philosophy of mlm, but not what they do. I still enjoy beach body programs like insanity and p90x, but the philosophy of being a practitioner vs theory is great. But I do hate mlm’s.

Please let’s stop the negativity. The only people that really make money on Diet Bet are the Host (10% of pot) and Diet Bet. The only other Diet bet I joined with Felicia we won $15. If you join a Diet Bet to make money you will be disappointed. I just like getting my $35 back at least. 🙌

People are complaining?? I see why she doesn’t want to host another one. So sad. She even donated a ton of her own earning to charity. People never cease to amaze.

Some people are only happy when complaining.

I think it’s absolutely absurd how much complaining is going on the last several days about Felicias kickstarter’s weight loss challenge and the transformer challenge. If people would read the rules before they sign up that would alleviate part of the issue. They assume because so many people joined both of the challenges they’re going to make a ton of money. If they want to make money this is not the way to do it and they’re missing the whole point of these challenges. I think it’s disheartening how nasty some of the comments have been. I’m just thrilled that I hit my goal and that I will receive my initial fee back. That a lot of people hit their goal I think is fabulous and that says a lot for the support and the integrity of the Host that’s running the challenge. It was also incredibly generous of Felicia to donate to three different charities clearly not something she had to do. I’ve done two challenges with Felicia one in October one now. I’m sad she’s not going to be doing them anymore but I also understand.

Wait so the only way I can get my money back is through pay pal?

But then you can transfer that straight to your bank account.

Andrea H.

It's possible to request a check, but I believe you have to contact customer support.
