Default Diet Bet?

Hey all

Has anyone participated in http://www.dietbetter.com/dietbet-4/how-it-works
Diet Bet where you win money for losing 4% of your body weight in a month?

My coach told me about it ...

Cheers

I have done Diet Bet several times. Two six month challenges (one is still ongoing) and several four week challenges. So far I have won more than $350.00 doing what I was planning to do anyway: losing weight.

My advice would be, if you join more than one challenge concurrently, you pay VERY special attention to the weigh-in dates and times. On my last six month challenge I thought I was following the rules to the letter by weighing in religiously every single Wednesday, but it turns out that ADDITIONAL weigh-ins are required on a certain date every month (the date differs for each contest) or you are disqualified for that particular month. I lost about $75 because of my inadequate understanding of that rule. >:-(

But overall it's an excellent program.

Thanks Shr1nk1ngme
I was planning on giving it a go on 25th of this month and I will check out weigh in times ... I do not have a scale at home and only get weighed by my coach. Sounds like this could be a problem ...

Yes, you need a scale.

THIS ^^

I didn't know about Diet Bet the first few months of my weight loss journey or I would have made a whole lot more money.

This may be a dumb question but do you have to pay to enter a challenge? and do you pay up front?

Yes you do. You are betting on yourself. The winnings are usually about $7 - 10 more than what you bet in the first place, depending on how big the challenge is and how many people drop out.

OK, I took the plunge and joined a bet that starts on Monday. Yikes! I think it will be motivating to have some money on the line to keep from cheating. I'm pretty frugal :-)

I am nervous, though, since 4% of my weight is nearly 7 pounds. That's a lot for me to lose in a month based on my usual rate. Well, good luck to me, I guess!
