The DietBet App offers a monetary motivator to help people achieve their weight loss goals in a more timely fashion. While the results of a diet is often rewarding enough, the process is anything but, so this app could really make a difference.
Launched last year, the DietBet App allows users to create and join bets to lose four percent of their body fat during a four-week period. Of course, there are safeguards to ensure people don't go overboard. For instance, reaching a 12 percent loss will get people disqualified.
With a few high-profile bloggers, authors and fitness coaches joining the DietBet App movement, pots are reached as high as $150,000, which is split between users who manage to achieve their weight loss goal.
