Lose Weight, Win Money [DietBet Game!]

I know. The title of this post sounds a little cliche and gimmicky, but just trust me here. I think you’re going to be interested in this. :)

As a Fitfluential Ambassador, I am lucky enough to be provided with some pretty incredible opportunities. When I heard about DietBet, I was immediately intrigued. As I read about exactly how DietBet works, I was ready to jump right in!

DietBet isn’t a diet or weightloss plan. You won’t be getting a food or exercise plan to follow, and you won’t be expected to attend any weekly meetings. DietBet is simply an incentive and means of accountability. And if you’re like me, that might be just what you need to shed a few of those unwanted lbs. Since I already know about eating well and exercising, what helps me is finding the motivation to commit to losing weight. As they say on the website, DietBet is a 4-week social dieting game.

The concept is simple: find a game and pay $25 to join in. The game is 28 days long (4 weeks) and the goal is to lose 4% of your body weight in that time. If, at the end of 4 weeks, you have lost 4% of your body weight, you will split the pot with any other participants that have also hit the goal.

When I first read that the goal was 4% of your body weight, I was a little nervous. That sounds like a lot…. But then I did the math, and it’s actually a pretty reasonable and healthy amount (about 6 lbs. for me). I don’t know about you, but having 6 less lbs. on my body would feel pretty fantastic.

You may be wondering: how do I weigh in?

As you can see from the photo above, you will be required to submit two different photos for your weigh-in. You must be completely honest with this process (DietBet will further investigate any weight loss patterns that seem “suspicious.”) And isn’t the point to actually lose weight here? Statistics have also shown that 90% of DietBet participants have lost weight! 90%!!

FYI- your weight will not be posted. That information and the photographs that you submit are kept private.

Signing up is easy- you can just log in with your Facebook account! (If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can create a unique user id and password.) Once you join in, you’ll be directed to your team page.

At the top of team page you’ll be able to see the amount that’s currently in the pot, how many players are in that particular game, and the total lbs. lost. (It’s zero right now because the game hasn’t started.)

Scroll down a little further on the page and you’ll see a list of your fellow game players. You can also interact and leave messages on the “wall” (like Facebook).

There’s also an option to send a message to friends via Facebook or Email to get them to join in!

There’s also an iPhone app. :)

So….. are you ready to join in on the fun? Ready to have some incentive to start shedding those unwanted lbs.?

If so, please consider joining in on the Fitfluential DietBet game, which starts this weekend. The more people that sign up, the bigger the pot grows, and the more money you can potentially win! And if you have a friend, spouse, co-worker, etc. that might be interested, they can sign up too! A little healthy competition can be fun. ;)

I don’t know about you, but I am pumped to get this party started and hit my 4% goal! Who’s with me?!

  1. Definitely an interesting and kind of fun idea. Good luck! I’m cheering you on!

  2. I hope you win!! I knew I had to get back into WW meetings, so Im already tapped out on my “weight loss budget”…Even though the meetings themselves are usually kind of hokey, they absolutely give the accountability I need (and I like chatting with other members too). For the first time in ages, I made it through the holiday season without any weight gain :-)…now time for some LOSS!

  3. Dietbet has become so popular, I keep seeing it everywhere! I signed up for one at the beginning of January through a blog I follow and the pot is over $7,000! Even if it’s split 20+ ways, that’s a nice little bonus :)

  4. I’m doing one right now! It ends at the end of this month and the pot is around $13,000! Nuts. I’ve lost my 4% already (pat myself on my back!) and just looking to see if I can lose more. It will be a little chunk of change to enjoy. Such a cool idea!

  5. How exciting girl!! I’m cheering for you! :) BTW.. you could gain 4% and still look fantastic.

  6. That is so awesome! GOOD luck, I hope you win that $$$! :)

  7. um. losing weight AND winning money? this is brilliant. Good luck!

  8. Signed up for this yesterday and so excited for it to start. Love the idea!
