Are you financially fit? How to turn your diet into a game, betting you will lose weight. There’s a significant difference in weight loss for those who are getting a money incentive to lose weight. The Mayo Clinic actually did a study on the subject with two groups of people, ones who got cash for weight loss and ones who didn’t. At Dietbet “losers” are even penalized for not losing weight by not making any money.
People put their own money up for the motivation
The study group who got cash for weight loss actually lost the weight 62% and the people in the “no cash incentive” group only loss weight 26%. The study proves people can be motivated to lose weight with money. Diaetbet is a 4-week online social game for losing weight and involves putting money in a pot with at least two or more players, friends or friends of friends only. The money gets distributed to the players at the end of 28 days. You must be 18 to play Dietbet.
Weigh in is done online before the game starts by sending two pictures online of your weight on a bathroom scale for review by Dietbet employees. One picture is the bathroom scale and “word of the day” written on paper and the other picture is a full length photo of you. You can post your weight as frequently as you like. The same scale must be used throughout the game.
Weigh out is done within 48-hours of the end of the game in the same manner as weigh in. Once everyone has weigh out then the official winner will be announced. If no one has reached their target weight the one closest to their goal by percentage will be deemed the winner by a Dietbet employee.
Winnings The winner takes all unless there is a tie and in that case the money pot is split between the two of you. You can even use Dietbet for fundraising. Two other websites on the web doing the same type of thing Stickk.com and Healthywage.com.
