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 911,304 DietBetters, 98.74% have lost weight during their challenges. Combined, they've lost 16,986,871 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

This was my last KickStarter. I have been doing them for a while, and have often been disappointed in the payouts after DietBet's cut. But this one went too far. To risk $150 -- and almost be unable to get a video submitted in time -- for no return at all makes no sense. Based on the success information that was published the day after the game was over, I expected a pay-out of $15 after DietBet took its cut (which I believed to be 25%). For DietBet to have confiscated the entire pool of funds of unsuccessful participants seems fishy to me. Good luck to everyone in keeping their weight loss going.

Diet bet has helped me lose weight even though I didn't make any money, but it is disingenuous to say I WON $150 instead of saying my money was returned.

So I also won the June main event and was suppose to net $150 which is what I paid in. Well I incorrectly entered my email for PayPal It was a typo but it was declined. I attempted it again and was told you can only request the payout once a day as a security measure and to try again today. I tried again today and guess what, now it says there is zero money in there for payout. I. Am. Pissed

I'm very disappointed with the way this contest was run. For DietBet to keep 100% of the "winnings" reeks of misrepresentation. Additionally, I had to go to great lengths to get my video approved. I distinctly felt as thought DietBet was doing everything possible to keep my investment.

I agree! Very disappointing. DietBet takes a grossly large %. Ever thought of the copious amounts of advertising dollars that could supplement operational expenses instead of penalizing the people who are actually putting in the effort to meet their goal. Bogus.

Wow a whopping 0 dollars! I'm done with dietbet, this just isn't worth it.

Kinda sucks the positives incentives out of the game when you get +0 to your bottom line.

I played 2 other games this time and made $$ on both of them ($20.45 total). There was only $30 and $35 on the line in those games, so a lot of people are more willing to walk away from it. I think I am done playing the high stakes games. It keeps me motivated, but it does for others as well. I also won't play again in Jan. New Years resolutions keep people motivated for the first month. I played and won, but only got my money back on all 3 games played that time. Congrats everyone.

Had to basically fast all day after my morning video submission was rejected, but it paid off: dropped another 0.4 pounds to put this baby to bed! Hope everyone hit their goal. On to the next one, baby!!!

Diet Bet rejected 2 of my weigh ins and asked me to resubmit again, Where earlier it said I had 11 hours to resubmit. Now it asks me to resubmit, but says I'm out of time??

Did you get it figured out? If you run into issues, please email us at before midnight.


Thank you! I was kind of a disaster with my weight out. Oh man! Sorry about that! but yes, I think I finally got it figured out. I came down with a pretty good bug for the past week or so, and so have been trying to get back up to speed. Whew!

Hit my goal on the nose! Thankfully I won't have to fast all day but I'm kicking myself for the few cheat days that left me NO margin for error.

Best of luck, all. Who's with me on another 4% cut?!?
