Would you bet money that you'll lose weight? A new app encourages you to.
DietBet is a new app that offers a platform where users create and join bets to
lose four-percent of their body weight in a four-week period. Winners of the
bets split the collected money among themselves, but more importantly the app
provides a social and motivational edge for those seeking to beat the dreariness
and unsustainable feelings that often come with conventional dieting. DietBet's
VP of Business Development said, "We wanted weight loss to be a fun and social
experience. That way, more people will stick with it." (Mashable)
