DietBetter: 4 percent Weight Loss in 4 weeks

Alexandra Williams, MA

Many people (mostly women) come to us for advice about losing weight. There are so many different ways to lose weight; some healthy, some not. We talk about realistic, healthy solutions.

Weigh me up, Scotty!

With that in mind, we are about to start a four week DietBetter on Tuesday, May 27. You get 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight. At the end of the 4 weeks, whoever’s hit their 4% goal is a winner and splits the pot. The amount in the shared pot depends on the number of people who join up.

 

With DietBetter we don’t tell you HOW to lose the weight, though Kymberly and I do have advice about the best diet for weight loss, the most effective way to get started , and the best weight loss methods according to research (hint: the answer is “it depends”).

What we like about DietBetter is that you choose the weight loss method that’s right for you, while they set the parameters to keep it healthy and safe. For example, if you weigh 170 pounds, four percent of that is 6.8 pounds, which means losing 1.7 pounds a week. Totally realistic, as we show in our post “Lose 10 pounds in 4 weeks.” Math + hard work = weight loss success + financial gain.

How DietBetter works:

1. Join up today and put $25 in the pot. You can join up after the game starts, but you are best off to join up in advance.

2. In the 48 hours before the start date of May 27 you post a starting weight photo that is verified by the DietBetter team (they send you a word to use, plus photo requirements).

3. Your weight is NEVER shared unless you decide to do so.

4. You can check in on the site as often as you like to share successes, frustrations, ideas, encouraging words, or even to ask us for advice.

5. Within 48 hours of the end date of June 28, you post your final weight. If you are a winner, you need to post a verification photo. If you did NOT achieve your 4% goal, you don’t need to post a picture.

6. Winners get their share of the pot via PayPal.

That’s it. I’ll be doing this too, as I still want to lose that last bit of the 10 pounds I gained back in December when I complained about being overweight and over the hill. Trying to lose weight on my own has gone okay, but not great. I am still not where I was six months ago, even with all my exercise and healthy eating. I’m motivated by money because I want to get my $25 investment back!! I also want to make money, though secretly I hope everyone is a winner. Oh, that’s another great thing about DietBetter – if everyone wins, they don’t even keep their cut. They believe so strongly in positive reinforcement that if we all win by losing, we all get back our full $25.

So, are you in? Click on this link to join. Four weeks. Four percent.

    Sounds like a really do-able goal! Those are so important, as so often you see unrealistic promises. (I’m hearing a commercial right now that makes ridiculous promises…) When we have goals that are unreachable, it makes it even harder to try again.
