Getting Paid to Lose Weight

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

It’s the holiday season and temptations abound, for many of us playing havoc with our efforts to lose weight and get more healthy. What if you could do that and get paid at the same time? No kidding!

Today The Lean to the Left Podcast welcomes David Roddenberry, who reveals how to actually make money by losing weight. He's co-founder of HealthyWage, and while they have a year-around program, right now they’re running a holiday-stay strong challenge that sounds pretty cool.

HealthyWage is a wellness gamification company … I never knew there was such a thing…that’s already paid "pound losers" over $6 million in 2021 alone, and $55 million since its inception 11 years ago.

How does it work? What’s involved?

David answers these questions and more on the podcast:

  1. Is this a contest, or do people get money for every pound they lose?

  2. Does offering a healthy jackpot actually get people to shirk temptation and lose or maintain their weight?

  3. How do people weigh-in online?

  4. How does this work with New Year’s resolutions?

  5. Isn’t there some kind of connection with health and fitness expert Jillian Michaels? How does that work?

  6. Is this for individuals, only, or are their programs at work, etc.?

  7. If HealthyWage pays out all of this money to pound losers, how do you guys make money?
