Do you want to lose 4% body fat?
I’m willing to bet that you do.
Put it this way, no one ever said they want to gain 4% body fat, did they?
Back on New Year’s Eve 2015 I posted about how I bulked to 80kgs.
Starting Monday 1 February 2016 and for the following 28 days I’m aiming to cut and lose 4% fat while maintaining strength…
…and maybe even hit single digit body fat in the process.
But, one of the biggest challenges is that picking goals and sticking to them is really hard, even if they are for 28 days and especially if you do it alone.
Diet Bet will help.
Diet Bet is a social dieting platform which helps you kick any extra pounds to the curb.
It combines the best parts of behaviour change psychology, such as commitment, accountability, loss and reward.
If you have ever tried to cut fat and failed, it could be because there is no commitment, accountability, loss and reward…
I’m running a friendly 4 week private weight loss competition amongst my friends on Diet Bet.
Anyone in my challenge places a small bet on themselves that they can lose 4% of their body weight within 28 days.
2 days before my challenge starts, participants must submit their starting weight and two clothed photos (all private within the Diet Bet platform.)
At the end of the 28 days, participants must submit their final weight and two clothed photos (again all private within the Diet Bet platform.)
Anyone in the challenge who loses 4% of their body weight, splits the purse (minus Diet Bets fee) between all of the winning participants.
It’s not winner take all challenge like The Biggest Loser.
Equally, anyone in the challenge who doesn’t reach the goal forfeits their bet to the purse divided between all winning participants (more here).
So, my Diet Bet Challenge is for anyone who wants to lose some weight, whether that is 3kg or 30kg.
And to enter my Diet Bet Challenge costs you a $20 bet.
If you lose 4% of your body weight you are guaranteed to get your money back (and possibly a split of the remaining purse.)
You may be wondering about prevention of cheating, privacy of weight and photos, weigh-ins and other equally important things…
All your questions are answered here.
Any diet, any weight, any goal, any exercise is permissible and because it is online, any of you can enter my challenge no matter your location.
So will February 2016 be the month you lose the weight you want, or will you continue with your current habits?
Are you in?
The choice is yours, but you know that already 🙂
Let’s have fun, lose weight, and win some money together.
