The subject of losing weight for me is like walking into the feminine section of the grocery store. It's not an area that I feel comfortable in or know well at all. I've always been the skinny kid trying to gain weight. And while you're rolling your eyes and hating on me for this alleged gift, I viewed it as a curse. It's not cute to be a 6 something black man where a chipmunk fart can literally blow you away. Fortunately those days are way behind me (Pun intended). That said I can appreciate the struggle of the great masses who want to lose weight, it's the same struggle just a different side of the coin. With that said, I think I may have found a way to help you get fit and get paid to do it! Ready for it?
So How Do You Make Money Losing Weight?
Well apparently there are social dieting or diet betting sites like DietBetter.com & HealthyWage.com. The premise works as follows:
- A group of people bet money online via a social dieting site on how much weight (from a percentage standpoint) they can lose in a certain time frame (30 days, 6 months, etc). The bets can be as low as $10 or as high as $100.
- You have to submit a picture or video of your starting weight.
- When the bet time frame ends, everyone must submit their final weight.
- The winners who actually meet their weight goal split the money that was put in evenly. Keep in mind some of the whole pot of money is given to the diet betting site for running the bets and making sure everyone stays honest.
- Payouts can be made via Paypal or other methods a few days after weights have been verified and winners are determined.
Depending on the site, some the steps above may vary. You would have to visit each site to see the different nuances. But basically folks are pooling money together betting to hit a certain weight percentage and then a big portion of the pooled money is then distributed to the winners in greater amounts than what you paid into it.
Either way it's a way to motivate you to stay focused on your health and get rewarded two fold. Your body gets skinnier while your wallet gets fatter!
Can You Really Get Paid For Losing Weight?
Apparently these sites are the real deal. Folks are actually making money doing this and you can see proof on these Diet Betting sites. Some of these sites are even being featured on national TV shows and such. So it does seem to work. That said I don't know if long terms you'll keep to your trim self. The other aspect is you can't make an ongoing full time income dieting forever. Otherwise you'll wither away into the old skinny Eddy with a y.
If you're looking to actually make a sustainable full time income from home then you may want to look into My Top Free Work At Home Recommendation! The good thing about it is that making money won't depend on if you lose weight or not. You can dictate how much money you make over time.
But that said it does involve the same type of discipline and patience that being on a diet or fitness routines requires. The only difference is your reward will be financial. Hopefully in time you'll be making enough money where you have your own gym like I do in my house. I'm not bragging I'm just saying what's possible when you're involved in the way I make money online. But to each their own.

Just wanted to chime in and let you know of a similar opportunity to the two you mentioned above.
There is an app called Pact that is basically the same thing that you might want to check out.
I believe it’s on a weekly basis where you wager a bet on how many times you’re going to workout/eat healthy that week.
You must workout with the app open and it tracks your time and calories if running.
If you meet your goal you make a percentage of the weekly bets. Usually just a few bucks plus what you put in, but a cool way to stay motivated if you’re into that kinda thing!
Could be another option to point out to everyone!
Thanks for sharing that app! I never heard of it but it sounds like something worth checking out. But I wonder what type of cheating protection they have in place. I know with other devices you can fake exercise. So I wonder how they combat against this. Either way, thanks for sharing the option!
Just want to say thanks for the website. It’s easy to read (large print for old eyes) informational and protects guys like me who go (to some websites) where all men should fear to tread. You’re rock solid and fun to read. Thanks again.
You’re very welcome buddy. I’m glad that my website helps all people including us older guys. Trust me I can I appreciate your sight issues. As I get older I find that I prefer larger fonts as well. LOL
Thanks for the continued support! I appreciate it!
Sounds like a fun program. We use to have a weight loss contest at work where we weighed in every week and if you didn’t lose that week you paid a dollar. Then, after 3 months the person who lost the most got the pot. Then, at the end we all went out to eat. lol
Lol I think that’s why some people criticize programs like this. Because it doesn’t really change people’s eating habits long term. Either way seems like a fun idea to me. Thanks for chiming in.
Hey Eddy, 🙂
I found this one quite interesting, as I’m on a low carb journey myself to lose weight. (day 2) – I did just a few quick searches and found mixed reviews. I would like to see the comments here so I’ve checked the Notify box. Nice topic! 🙂
Great to hear from you. It’s been too long. I’m glad this one sparked your interest. I agree some people love this and some people don’t. I guess it’s just one of those things folks have to “weigh in” on with their own experience. Sorry I couldn’t help myself. LOL
But seriously I’m interested in seeing what other say as well.
