Weight Loss App Encourages Dieting By Placing Bets On Success
Being healthy just got a lot more interesting with users of DietBet being able to win jackpots of up to $150,000.
While the results of a diet are an exciting prospect, the process is anything but. DietBet changes all that by giving you something (apart from fat) to lose during your diet – your money.
Started in June 2012, the app allows users to create and join bets to lose 4% of their body fat during a four-week period. Featuring a few high-profile bloggers, authors and fitness coaches, the largest pot to date is a mammoth $150,000 – which would be split between users who manage to achieve their weight loss goal.
