How to Get Paid to Lose Weight


How to Get Paid to Lose Weight

I’m pretty sure the majority of you landing on this page were completely blown away by the article heading and rightly so – I was amazed this sort of thing existed online!

You are here because you want to learn more about how to get paid to lose weight!

When I first stumbled upon this online option to make money I was humbly impressed – whoever originally thought this up is probably raking it in now!

You see, you are combining two of the BIGGEST online niches into one and then slapping it down on the table…genius!!!

The ‘Work Online’ niche and the ‘Lose Weight’ niche are two of the biggest contenders around in the internet world – they rack up hundreds of thousands of searches a day!

Get Paid 2 Lose Weight!!!

So how is this possible? How can you make money losing weight? Surely this is some sort of elaborate scam?

This is as straight as an arrow – believe me!

I was introduced to a site called about a month back so I decided to dive straight in and find out how legit these guys are ( don’t worry that link is NOT an affiliate link! ) I was looking for the normal tell-tale signs of a rip-off merchant but nothing obvious was on view.

I kept on digging but all I could find were happy members that were actually seeing results from being on the site ( they were losing weight and enjoying it! )

How Does All This Work?

I honestly feel that this site’s setup is a pretty neat idea – it feels like a sort of social platform for dieting, with a twist…

Step 1 – Members are allowed to bet amounts of cash on how much weight they can lose in a certain time frame. This weight is gauged as a percentage and the time frame offers all sorts of ranges ( a fortnight, a month, 6 months…. ). The betting amount usually ranges from $10 right up to $100.

Step 2 – Before your bid/bet is accepted you must submit a recent photo or a recent home made video of yourself ( no cheating here folks! ).

Step 3 – When the set period of betting time elapses all the participants must reveal their final weight.

Step 4 – All of the lucky participants who reach their weight loss goal get to split the betting pot ( equally ) between themselves. There is an obvious commission that the site takes out but the remaining pot is usually a substantial one!

Step 5 – Winners are not allowed to cash out straight away ( well they weren’t at the time of writing this! ). The site needs a few days to sort through the winners pool and make sure everyone is legit and truthful. After a few days the site offers various payment options ( including the awesome Paypal ).

You have to admit – this is an excellent way to combine a healthy lifestyle with an avenue to make money. Not everyone is going to be a winner but a high percentage of people will actually lose weight just by TRYING to win the cash.

A very well thought out business model in my book!

How to Get Paid to Lose Weight is not the only website out there that offers this service and as far as I can see they all seem legit and extremely popular. I’ve even noticed some of these sites being featured on national TV shows.

The thing I like about these sites is the motivation they produce – I feel that more members are actually more interested in losing the weight ( as opposed to winning the money! ).

Sure, winning the bet would be pretty awesome but finally getting rid of that fat ass would be a whole lot sweeter right?

I couldn’t really find ANY negatives during my membership at and I was highly impressed by it’s business model. If you want to lose weight and earn a little cash on the side then you should seriously consider giving it a go!

  1. Wow this is really a great idea that i have ever heard on losing weight. By this way people are more motivated to lose weight as not only you will get healthier and looks better, you will also get money as reward!! I am pretty sure this will work if follow this system! lets try it!

    1. Well glad you like the idea behind it mingyao – give it a try and come back here to let us know about your experience with it 🙂

  2. What a fantastic concept you have here. I certainly need to lose a bit of weight and I also like a flutter on the horses and football so this could well be for me. The only question I have is how is this 100% foolproof? What I mean is how do they know 100% that the ‘winners’ have actually lost the weight they claim?

    1. Ah don’t worry about that Paul – they have pretty sturdy cheat mechanisms in place to make sure the right individual gets the reward 🙂
      So far the whole process have proved to be pretty foolproof.

  3. Hi Chris,

    Wow, This is amazing, and I really was blown away with the headline, its a weight loss casino out there, lol. Great way to tap a market of million customers who want to make moeny and loose weight. Three cheers to the creator of this concept.


    1. Well that’s the most positive comment I’ve had left on this site today Kunal 🙂
      It is a pretty impressive idea that seems to be working out for the people behind it AND the people taking part!

  4. Hi Chris,

    I am completely blown away with this idea! I have never heard of it before but I can see the potential, both business-wise and for the individual looking to lose weight.

    I have struggled my whole life with my weight and one of the reasons for this is because I lack motivation. But this could be what I am looking for and I think I might look into it further.

    Do you know if we have to pay a fee to join in as well or just the money we bet?


    1. Hi Saima,
      No you’re alright – it’s just the money to use for the bet you need. The site takes a small commission off the final pot so they’re not looking for subscription fees 🙂

  5. Hey Chris, what a find…make money while loosing weight, genius! I saw your headline and just had to find out more about this. I am looking to lose a few pounds, well my beer belly anyway! As an internet marketer myself I wish I had thought of this, but instead I’m going to have to give it a go, I’m lazy but I don’t like to lose money so this might just be the kick up the kazoo that I need!
    Thanks for posting

  6. Hello Chris, your article made me smile. How did they get the idea :)! Such a great find! How to Get Paid to Lose Weight! Also a great slogan, it rhymes 🙂
    It’s a win-win concept. Even when you don’t win the battle, you have at least lost some weight. And can try again in a new betting.

    I have read through your answers on other comment which are given. So dietbet(.)com doesn’t even ask for a fee. Than it is just how much you bet, and how determined you are on winning that bet.

    You say it is full proof, are they doing random on spot checks? I am very curious how they are keeping track on the “not to cheat” part.

    Kind Regards, Loes

    1. Hi Loes,
      It’s not just the security they have in place that makes it cheat-free, it’s the actual members and community. All of the people that have joined up are desperate to lose weight – the money is secondary to them! Everyone is open and everyone is squeaky clean – getting slim is worth a lot more than money to them.

  7. Wow this is definitely something new ! I haven’t heard of any of these websites. this is a really motivating thing to overweight people, because you earn money to lose weight. I have a question. Did you ever participate in these websites and did you earn money there ? Or do you have any friends that used them ?

  8. haha wow! There really is a way for everything nowadays :o) I wish I knew about this site couple of years ago when I started working out and dieting and managed to loose a lot of weight in one year. Anyway I totally agree that Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go if you want to make money online in a serious way. I am acctually a member myself ;o) Thanks for sharing / John

    1. Great stuff john ( and well done with the weight loss! )
      Always nice to meet newbie members from the WA – hope the education is going smoothly there for you!

  9. This is an awesome article and I never new one could get paid to lose weight. I would imagine that getting involved with such companies could spur people on to lose weight more rather than doing it on their own for example.
    But, i have a niggling question, how would the company know if participants aren’t lying, that they say they’ve lost weight when they haven’t?

    1. Hi Sharon,

      As I’ve pointed out many times before in this comment section ( and the article itself! ), the company have strict guidelines in place to weed out the cheaters. Don’t worry – they’ve thought about this long and hard before you did 🙂

  10. When I first read the heading I was quite skeptical and scuffed at the idea to get paid losing weight. After reading your review it started to make sense. I think this is a great idea. I think that when you have money involved in your weight loss it could be quite attractive. An overweight gamblers dream.
    I was wondering if there is any joining fee involved?

  11. Hi there chris,

    Great article but I can see some flaws in Diet Bets system. very easy to manipulate the images and videos, not talking about photoshop or anything but the exif meta data to make the file look like it was shot today.

    secondly, certain techniques like weight yourself do the photo video after a large meal. And then there is manipulation of the scales, coins in pockets etc etc to weigh up, add in weight.

    Thirdly, weight scales can be intentionally miscalibrated. In both directions to add and subtract weight.

    great idea but requires honesty

    1. LOL it goes a lot deeper than that Derek – these guys weren’t born yesterday! Have a look around their website and see for yourself 🙂

  12. Hi Chris,
    The best way to lose weight the fastest is 1-hour of cardio, 5-6 times a week. It will take about 6-8 weeks to begin noticing changes. Additionally, the average person only loses about 1-2lbs per week.

    Once I have achieved my weight goal you may drop to 30-minutes of cardio, 3-4 times a week.

    An added bonus would be weight training prior to the cardio for faster results-kicking into fat metabolism.

    I diet is crucial-however, don’t do anything as far as eating that you don’t intend on sticking to for life or else I had just wasted amount of time. Eat the foods you enjoy-but only in moderation, like a mini sample of everything. Try to eat 5-6 small meals and snacks a day as opposed to 3 big ones this keeps you from getting too hungry and binging.

  13. Interesting idea, thank you for explaining the site and the process of it. At first, I thought this was going to be some crazy thing where people give you pills or a placebo and determine the results through a sort of survey but it looks more like a betting game.
