  1. Countdown timer, percentage bar and # of winners

    I would like to see a countdown timer under the "hold tight" message. I would like a percentage bar saying how many people have weighed out at the end of the game and I would like a running total of the number of winners as they are verified.

    • Search for Local Members for Encouragement/Support

      It would be great to be able to search for a member on the site by city or distance. It would be great to meet up with some one to go work out.

        • Money back each month of the Transformer

          During a transformer we should get the money at the end of each round we win instead of having to wait the whole 6 months.

            Thanks for your feedback, Michelle! We’ve submitted this idea for review.

          • I would like to be able to read what the host has to offer before joining a particular game. Does the host give a food plan, daily exercise?

            Have each host post a description of what they will offer in terms of food and exercise plans when you join their game. If the host provides a diet or exercise plan, is it free or do you have to go to their website and subscribe/pay. Also, if exercise plan offered, is it You Tube type video, showing you the exercise or in written format. I want to be able to pick the DB that suits me best.

            • 9 week game with Couch to 5K app

              I'm fascinated by the Couch to 5K app, never tried it, it is a 9 week program that allegedly gets you from couch-level activity to a 5K marathon in 9 weeks. There are free versions all over the web that you can use with an ipod, or the official app is around $2 that you need to have an iphone for so it tracks your run with GPS. I'm not a runner but would be very interested in a 3rd category of a 9 week dietbet game for us couch potatoes to follow the C25K app, get in shape for…

                  • Inches lost diet bet

                    while my scale apparently can't decide how much I weigh...because it gives me different weights every time I step on it sometimes in a given 5 minutes...I can tell that I have lost serious inches. I look and feel great compared to when I started. Any chance you will ever consider doing a game where people submit measurements instead of weight?

                      • Trail/Costless game

                        I have several friends that are scared/unsure about using dietbet. I think it would be useful to the people that are in this same mindset to be able to join a trail game where they are allowed to participate in a no charge game. At the end of the game give the stats for the game and show what the payouts would have been if there would have been an entry free.

                        • allow the opportunity to pay someone else's bet

                          like a motivational "gift"
                          I would love to be able to do this for my sister who might not be able to commit the money since she is saving for her wedding.

                              • Dietbet for weight gain (bodybuilding)

                                I just heard of this website and checked it out! I think dietbet should also have the same system for people gaining weight through muscle mass! There are so many people training to build muscles. Its just that much more incentive!

                                • Sort and add goal weight to Profile/Games view

                                  When you click on Your Profile/Games, the list of current DietBets is not user-friendly. It would be great if the view also showed the goal weight and was either in chronological order or would allow us to sort it. I'd like to know at a glance what goal weights I need to hit on what days.

                                    • Body measurements to verify weight loss

                                      Weigh-ins are great but as we all know, water, muscle and a lot of other factors contribute to weight fluctuations, I think there should be waist, chest, thigh and arm measurements incorporated also, especially for people on the cusp of the weigh out weight for example 3.98% or even to catch out people who may cheat :)

                                      • Profile weight graph: weight tooltip should have date and weight.

                                        Profile weight graph: weight tooltip should have date and weight.

                                        Also the weight graph can be a little more detailed in graphics, showing detailed weight. May be a tabular format also for all the dates and weights (also official/unofficial or winner/runner up)

                                        • Paypal for monthly Transformer payments

                                          Paypal option for Transformer - yes I know that means I'll have to do it manually each month.
