Lose 10%

in 6 months


Split the pot

10% is easier when you break it up, so each round has its own goal - and its own pot to split.
Check out the FAQ to learn more!

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

So now this game is finished and I joined the next one that started on July 15, yesterday, paid and weighed in, but it keeps taking me back to this page and cannot find the next game. Any clues as to how I might find it?

I think if you hover over your pic beside the bell icon in the upper right corner it will give you the games you are in. Then click on that game. I hope this works for you.

OK, I usually don't argue, but I believe that when I do the math, I got a little less than I expected. Please remind me what happens to the money that is not paid out.

Also, I believe it would be wise to only broadcast what monies are truly available for payout instead of the total paid in divided in half and so on. I am certain that I am not the only one who divided the pot/winners to get a different number than the payout...

No matter what, I do love this social diet game and tell everyone about it. Just hope that DB continues to become more and more transparent.



DietBet took 25% off the top of the pot. The rest was divided equally among the winners.

My Paypal account says it will take 3 - 5 days to go into my bank account. Probably because I am in Canada. I did make another $13 off the exchange though! LOL!

Mine says 3-5 days as well.

I kinda wish they would let us keep weighing in on here, doesn't have to be the verified weigh ins, but I like the manual ones. I miss this dietbet but don't want to commit to another one just yet lol

Where do I add my paypal info in order to get paid?


You have to go through your account on the website and there is an option for Payout there. Nothing on the app allows you to do it from here.

Anyone got their payout credited to their Paypal account yet?. They said it takes 48 hours. Not seeing any activity in my Paypal account yet. Just wondering if anyone else has. Not worried though. I know they'll come through.
