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 895,498 DietBetters, 98.72% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,444,308 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

Smaller in Texas, you are the best coach ever. I"m going to take a break in December but if you host another game in Jan or Feb, count me in. Don't like the game I'm in right now but I"m new at this and I'll learn how to chose games. I never even check in to that game and I won't until the weigh in on the last the waaahbulance for me...haha. The posts are all about the coach! BTW, I am a native Texan now living in Montana!

When will we actually get the money after we win ?

Smaller in Texas

It should be showing as credit in your account with DietBet. Then you can use it towards my (or another) next game or request payout to PayPal.


I got mine and used it for another bet

My last one took a bit too. I'm not sure why. Should know soon though! Can't wait to see how much y'all won!

I'm verified! Congrats everybody! Even if you didn't make goal, you likely weigh less than when you started!

Had to be really disciplined the last few days to get there, but my final weigh-in just got verified :) This was my first DietBet, but I'll definitely be doing some more!

Thanks everyone who supported me through the game. I don't know what went wrong but then again, I lost 5 lbs and I did not cheat. I have some medical issues, lymphedema, fused left foot and ankle that stays swollen so I don't know. I'm not making excuses because I'm proud of what I did and I'm going to join another game. Congrats to all who won. I know how hard you worked!!!

CJ I am a nurse in Arizona and a trainer for patients with lymphedema. I train the to use a pump that does manual lymphatic drainage. It's called Flexitouch and it's by tactile systems. If you don't have one they are awesome! Look it up and maybe you can get one ordered.


thanks, Charity. I just saw your post and I'll look up the Flexitouch. I've had Lymphedema since 2001 and in the beginning I did all the "stuff" you are supposed to do but then just said to hell with it. It stays about the same but it does look like a Popeye arm. I got it, most likely, because 8 weeks after my Mastectomy and Tram Flap, I broke my foot, from being on Prednisone. The clinic I went to for the break, PUT ME ON CRUTCHES, even they they knew I had just had one chemo treatment because I had breast cancer and surgery. It only took about 8 days for the swelling to start.

I'm trying so hard! Only 1.7lbs away from goal. Going to push today! Any tips or tricks?

Don't drink any water or liquids within 5 hours of weighing in ... remember that you only have until midnight PST tonight ... I hope that gets to a morning weigh-in in your neck of the woods.


No carbs! You can do it!!

Big bad bummer. I missed my goal by 1 pound. :( On the bright side, I did lose 5.6 pounds and that's a big deal for me. I changed my habits tremendously and learned a lot along the way. I did make my goal weight in my other dietbet, so 1 out of 2 ain't bad. Keep on keepin' on! Congrats to all of you who won!

5.6 pounds is a big deal. In reality anything over a pound per week is a big deal. Glad to hear that your other DB put an x in the win column ... I am sure that your next bet will be the same.


Congrats on your weight loss!!! You'll get the next one, that's a lot of weight to lose and you should be proud!

Keep the momentum going! A new game has been set up for all players starting on Nov 09, 2015.

Good luck!
