- Most Liked Comment: "Here's a reminder about the payouts for the individual rounds, since the end of the first round is coming up.

When we pay $35 per round for this Transformer, we are actually only putting half (17.50) of that into the round prize, and the other half goes to the last pot to make it a bigger goal for the end of the game. So your payout for winning round 1 probably won't be $35, but when you consider you've only put in $17.50 for round 1, that's the amount you need to think about when think you're losing money even though you won the round.

Example - in the Transformer I'm in that started on January 1, we've just completed the fourth round. So far our payouts per round are as follows:
Round 1 - $18.43
Round 2 - $27.13
Round 3 - $32.62
Round 4 - $34.00

Round amounts are determined solely by the percentage of players who win a round, and that number always changes from round to round. The numbers above represent a different Transformer, and are listed just for example purposes. I have no idea what we will win in Round 1, but it will be a minimum of $17.50.

All of those months represent a profit, since only $17.50 was put into the prize pool for that round. Also remember that DietBet takes a percentage out for their expenses for paying staff and referees and providing us with all of this technology. There are always people who don't understand this model, so hopefully this will clear it up for you. Of course if you win the round, that means you've lost over 3% of your starting weight, and THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD PRIZE RIGHT THERE!

Good luck, everyone!" by Keith A.

I didn’t get notified of the total I won for the three months I DID win (lost the last round and two others)

I tracked down my money and requested payout, too bad they didn’t email me. Wasn’t in my spam folder either.

Does anybody here do weight training and has also experienced that in the beginning this stops weight loss or even has you gain weight? I'm a little frustrated, I started some bodyweight and dumbbell training, not even extensively, just 3 times a week for like 20 minutes like 1,5 weeks ago. And I didn't lose anything when before I lost like 2 lbs a week (keto). Is that normal? I'm afraid it could be it's not the workouts but that I have to adjust my calories again and I want to react accordingly as soon as possible

Agree with Rachel. Add a bit more protein. Her suggestions are great, and I will add one more PB2 or PBFit, whatever you prefer. I will add it to shakes and even to coffee. Can add water and spread it on celery or whatever you chose. I’d look at your fiber and water intake as well.

Since I tore my PCL during the first week of this competition, I have only been able to do heavy weight training and diet. It has been a struggle to lose the last few pounds. My weight has always fluctuated when I’m lifting heavy, mainly because of the water retention. Yes, muscle burns more calories but that is more if a long term effect, not really an advantage to trying to burn a few extra pounds in the last month of our competition. In my opinion, I would hold off on the dumbbell training, but continue the body weight training (that always burns hella calories), just since it’s we’re nearing the end :)
