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

What a motivator! On the last day, I was one half pound over my goal! But even though I didn't win, I did lose more than I would have without Dietbet. I will definitely do this again!

Ryan, I think originally there were more ppl in, that may have dropped out of the game, and dietbet deducts 10% of the pot for their expenses. I'm guessing that may be the reason for the discrepancy. But not for sure.

Quick question. I noticed there is $2020 in the pot. If there are 76 players and each bets $25, then it should be 1900. The pot should also be divisible by $25. Anybody know why the discrepancy?


Diet Bet added money to our pot. They do it for things like... a certain person got 5 friends to join +$20 to the pot.
