Back to School Diet Bet!

Good news people, we have another Diet Bet starting!  Our first DietBet was a huge success, with our pot growing to over $60,000!  If you’re not familiar with DietBet, it’s a fun community challenge where everyone contributes a “bet” into the game (in this case, $35) and anyone and everyone who loses 4% of their body weight splits the pot at the end. 


If you lose your 4% you get your money back no matter what, plus a little extra!  It’s a great motivator to have and a fun challenge with some community support.  Thousands of you joined in during the summer, but many expressed that summer time was difficult with irregular schedules, traveling, and young kids off on summer break.  (Um, raising my hand here.  I played and I failed, lol!) This time I will prevail!

This time we’re purposely waiting until September 1st.  It’s the start of autumn and the beginning of the holiday season, and you have no more excuses.  You’ll be SO happy if you focus and accomplish your goals during the month of September.  Just one month!  You can do it!  So go invite your friends, your co-workers, and your family members.  The more people the merrier, let’s do this!

To make it even more fun, this time Kate and I are throwing in “bonus stakes”.  We’ll be dishing out bonus prizes like autographed cook books and gift packs from our Shop!  So what are you waiting for?



  1. Hi! Will you do this again in January? I’m pregnant and due at the end of Sept, so I’ll probably lose my 4% just not a fair way 🙂 I’d love to participate at a later date!

  2. I am glad you all are enjoying the Diet Bet! May I just express my personal wish that there may be one day in the future a type of “healthy bet” where we get points for healthy changes, goals, etc? I would love to play with you ladies, and I could definitely do a lot to get in better shape, but at my current weight I really don’t need to lose any. 🙂
