Pact uses cash stakes to help you achieve your health goals with three easy steps. 1) Commit: Make a weekly Pact to exercise more or eat healthier. Set what you’ll pay other Pact members if you don’t reach it. 2) Meet your goals: Use the Pact app to track your progress. 3) Reap the rewards: Earn real cash for living healthily, paid by the members who don’t! There are three different types of Pacts - gym pact, veggie pact, food logging pact - to help you stay in shape, eat more veggies, and log your meals. You can choose to commit to one or all of these Pacts.

DietBet:

Sometimes you need someone else to hold you accountable for your workouts. And that is what DietBet is all about! Here's how it works: Choose from games starting soon, or start your own and challenge your friends. To begin you'll put money in the pot. After four weeks, whoever's lost 4% of their body weight will split the pot. Two days before your game begins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight (They request a photo of the scale! No lying here). Once your weight has been approved you will have 28 days to lose 4% of your body weight. After the final day, you will have 48 hours to weigh out. Within 24 hours after the final weigh-out period ends, the results are made official and the pot is divided among the winners.
