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 724,910 DietBetters, 100.04% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 12,290,503 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

Me too! I went as far as to look up where they are located. California. So I kind of doubt if it's not up by 5 pacific time that it will show up today :(


They are actually located in NY. So cut off time is a lot sooner. :( Can't wait to find out the results!

I started off great, then fell off a little bit and just kind of stayed the same. This last week, I buckled down and focused on planning my food intake and making healthy food choices. Plus, I worked out in some way every day. Voila! I made weight yesterday! I need to join another DB starting this week so I can trim a little more off before vacation the last week of April. I want to feel good about myself and enjoy that vacation.

Should be later today or tomorrow. Takes them up to 2 days to finalize results after the weigh in period ends.

For those asking about maintenance. I just realized that my fitness app, LoseIt! has a maintenance setting. Thought some of you might find the info useful! Best of luck to all!

So I lost 11 pounds this month! Can't wait to win another diet bet. I think I might stop after this set of 4, I feel like I'm about to hit a plateau. What do you do to overcome those?

It's really childish but I am so impatient lol! I can't wait for the results, I had to work quite hard to be able to make the 4%! The last 2 bets I lost so I am happy to finally won one... But it's Friday and almost weekend, (2hours to go at work) and I just wanna know! Please tell me I am not the only one?!

I'm in the same boat! It's like waiting for Christmas


Emily I always cheat with Christmas presents I just CANT wait. So usually I already touched, rambled, weighed my presents. I also try to look between the cracks of the wrapping paper and keep peppering everyone with question about my Christmas gifts. I am sooooo annoying haha!
