Why do I have a feeling of deja vu, like there was a thread like this (at least) once before?

Regardless, I was planning on starting a diet today anyways so I'd probably be in.

I think the op put it there first and either decided to open his own thread or mods split it

OK!

Voting time.

Do we do it here or with Paypal or on Dietbet.com?

Dietbet.com takes their fee off of the winnings but it insures that everybody's trust is... erm, not misplaced.

And how much should the buy-in be? $20? Dare we go higher?

A specific program?

I'll be following "The Slow Carb Diet" as outlined in Tim Ferriss's "4 Hour Body". The program projects similar results.

I don't trust any DDFer (myself included) when there are loopholes that can be found.

im not interested in sending pictures of myself in "airport clothes" to anyone on the internet (including diet bet).

i would do it if its based on trust of people who have been around for a while (someone I would feel comfortable doing business with). If you do a ten week or so program (till purim?) then people who are claiming to lose certain amounts should be able to do so. Also I happen to not be a fan of a winner take all method. I would prefer a "hit X goal and participate in the winnings of everyone who doesn't hit X goal."
