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

Does this actually work?

Out of 888,413 DietBetters, 98.73% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,013,092 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

I want to celebrate this amazing win/achievement so badly, but I'm in a Kickstarter that ends on the 6th, and I haven't met my goal quite yet. Congrats to everyone who played!

One last post before I join another Transformer!!! How do I use my points/winnings from this game to join another???

Erin S.

Oh, I need to figure that out too.


once the points show up in your account, it should automatically apply them to the new transformer when you join the game and go through the payment page

Wow! $296! Combined with a Kickstarter that I did last month and didn't cash out, and a Kickstarter I did in month 1, I came in at just under $400 overall, effectively doubling my money! And I lost 10% of my starting weight :)

Woo! Made it! Tonight I'm splurging with pizza and dessert and tomorrow I'll be back to my healthy diet and exercise! So happy for this change in my life! I've wanted it for so long!

I had gotten an email that said my final weight was accepted but at the top of the page under initial and final weigh-in, it says "Under Review." Does everyone's say that?


mine does (and my weight was verified this morning also)

Amy M

OK, thanks @misty!

Oh no, hmmmm. Did you make it past round 5 ? I hope it is working for you now

Belinda R.

I did! I pressed back and it finalized without my pictures! But I emailed the support team and they were so helpful!!!!

Has anyone worked out how much winners will walk away with? There's a lot of money in that final pot, it must be a pretty penny!

$296.13! Very happy! $125 has gone straight into a new dietbet, and I'm getting $171.13 to spend on some new clothes! Very happy indeed!


I did this one and two kickstarters (month 1 and month 5) but I'm done! I'm taking my money and running (literally - it's going to running clothes and some smaller clothes)

Final weigh in done! Lost 18 pounds and over 4 inches off my waist, gained an appreciation for green food and waking up early to make time for the gym. Six months well spent!!
