  1. allow different fat loss percentage goals

    Allow higher fat percentage goals and have a more accurate way of assessing fat loss rather than using scales.

        Hi Rebecca! Thanks for your suggestion! We are currently working on launching other “Bet” type games, like StepBet (for meeting your step goals) and a maintenance game (for those who want to maintain their weight loss). And more are planned too! Stay tuned to see what is happening with DietBet and WayBetter.

      • Triple down

        This allows same start date and end date, but allows multiple bets. If I choose other games their dates might be different and it's sometimes hard to track.

        So triple down or 3 bets on same DB4 and triple down or 3 bets on the same DB10 which meets the multiple game participation criteria.

        • Windows Phone App!

          Windows Phone App. We Windows Phone users have a great Operating System. It's the best phone. But no one makes apps for us. It's very sad. You can make one.

          • Reflect Quick Update in all active games

            You can leave a quick update in a game, but you have to do this in all active games. You should make an option, like the weigh-in, to update all active games with the update. That'd be a timesaver for people with more than 1 active game.

            • How to discourage crash dieting and Dehydration tricks

              I suggest you require an official weigh in 3 - 6 days before the end. At this weigh in you would need to be within 75% of your goal to be eligible to win. This would severely reduce the number of crash dieters for the last weigh in .

              • Video from coach

                It would be cool if the person who started the dietbet would have the option of adding a video to the page. Just to get people motivated to join and maybe elaborate a bit on who this challenge is for etc. Not a mandatory thing, but it could be a nice addition for companies and other large groups to have their 'coach' welcome them to the challenge like that.

                    • 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.

                      • Excercise challege/ maintance challange

                        For those that have made goal weight but still need motivation to maintain or exercise. Gympact does not give the personal motivation of others that Dietbet does.

                        • 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.

                              • 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?

                                          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.
