HealthyWage Review: Can You Get Paid for Losing Weight Or Is It a Scam?

I definitely like the idea behind Healthy Wage: Get fit and earn money at the same time. Both of those activities are interesting so why wouldn’t you kill two birds with one stone? HealthyWage provides a great way to do it. You can earn up to $10,000 for reaching your weight loss goal. You’ll see your reward right away with their calculator even before the challenge.

In this review, I’ll show how you can use their app to earn money and lose weight. I’ll also answer the question, “Is HealthyWage a scam?” and give you a few tips how you can use it to make money easily.

Healthy Wage Review

Name: Healthy Wage


Founded: 2009

Type: Earn Money While Losing Weight

Short Review: HealthyWage is one of the best apps that I have seen for a while. They pay you honestly quite a good money for losing weight. People all around the world are enjoying this app and earning money while getting to the best shape of their lives.

HealthyWage will make you a good money but it won’t make you a living. If you are interested in earning a living online, have a look at My #1 Recommendation. I used that program to learn how to make money online and I love it.

What Is HealthyWage?

HealthyWage is a service that pays you for losing weight. You may be familiar with the idea already from other apps like Pact but the execution is much better in HealthyWage. Instead of earning a few dollars you can earn up to $10,000 if you reach your goals.

The idea is that you set a goal of how many kilos or pounds you want to lose. Then you set a deadline and a financial bet. If you reach your goal within your deadline, you’ll earn money. But if you lose the challenge, you lose the bet. The scientific proof from universities like Harvard shows that financial incentives can significantly help you to lose weight and reach your goals.

Notice that you can use HealthyWage almost anywhere in the world including Europe and Asia. There are some countries in the Middle East and North Korea where you can’t use this app but if you are not living there, it’s not a problem.

Next, we will take a look at how HealthyWage works. It’s pretty simple and everyone can learn to use it well.

How Does HealthyWage Work? – 6 Simple Steps

1) Calculate How Much Money You Will Win

I am pretty impressed how much money it’s possible to earn using HealthyWage. Some people have earned thousands of dollars with their challenges. For me, such numbers are not possible because I am not so much overweight. However, I could lose 20lbs quite easily so I took a look how much money I could gain by losing it.

is healthywage a scam

HealthyWage calculator in action.

If I would lose 20 lbs during the next 6 months, they would give me a $320 prize. Of course, it’s not a big sum of money but I’m sure it would motivate me to lose weight. Last year I lost almost 20 lbs in 2 months while visiting in Indonesia so I know 20 lbs in 6 months would be just a piece of cake.

You can change the numbers and choose something that is suitable for you. If you have lots of overweight, you can earn quite a good money with HealthyWage when you reach your weight loss goal.

2) Sign Up and Place Your Bet

Signing up to HealthyWage takes less than 30 seconds. You fill out your information, measurements and then you’re ready to go.

3) Weigh In

In this phase, you will measure your starting weight. There are two ways to get approved.

  1. Record a video of yourself in front of the mirror measuring your weight. Then you can upload it through the HealthyWage app or on their website.
  2. Book a time with HealthyWage’s official referee who will confirm your starting weight.

When your starting weight is set you can start taking action to lose your weight and reach your goal.

4) Lose weight

I always tend to say (with a little bit of humor of course) that losing weight is easy: You just don’t need to do anything and your weight goes down. But if you want to gain weight, you need to take action: Earn money to buy food, go to the supermarket to buy food, spend the time eating it and repeat. If you don’t do anything, your weight goes automatically down. That’s how the Universe works.

However, eating a lot has become a habit for many people and sometimes it’s not so easy to break habits. But if you get rewarded for breaking your habit, you will more likely make it.

5) Final weigh in

You have time within two weeks before reaching your deadline to make your final weigh in. So, even though you wouldn’t hit your target weight every evening, you can measure your weight in the morning. Most of the time we weigh a little bit less during the morning because you have been fasting for the whole night.

6) Get paid your rewards (even up to $10,000)

If you reached your goals, HealthyWage will diligently pay your rewards. They are an honest company and they have been featured on news channels like Fox News, CNN, Good Morning America, etc.

HealthyWage has been featured on several news channels. Their media presence helps them to earn more money from advertisers, for example.

Is HealthyWage a Scam? – 5 Reasons Why It’s Awesome

I definitely like HealthyWage and recommend it for people who need to lose weight. It will help you to reach your goals more easily and earn money at the same time. Here are 5 reasons why it could benefit you.

1) Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and University of Pennsylvania say it works

These universities have made researches of weight loss and they found a correlation between financial incentives and achieving weight loss goals. Those researchers inspired the founders of HeatlhyWage to create this app.

I agree that financial incentive can give a great motivational boost for achieving your goals.

2) Being overweight isn’t good for you – being fit is great!

Your body is the only vehicle that carries you through this life. Why would you have a bad vehicle?

Being in a good shape has a positive impact on your mind and overall happiness as well. When you reach your goal of losing weight, it sets yourself in a good mood that you’ll reach other goals as well.

3) Social Support

Team challenges offer you a social support because your friends also set the same goal. You can go running together and keep yourselves accountable. I recommend choosing friends that are truly committed because they’ll push you to raise your standards. Friends that are “seriously not serious” will just distract you from achieving your goal.

Even though you wouldn’t take a Team challenge you can still get a huge social support by sharing your goal with your friends. I have noticed that when I make my goals public, it forces me to reach higher. Do you have the same experience as well?

4) People are loving HealthyWage

There are already more than 400 reviews of HealthyWage on Android Play Store. Users have given the average rating of 4,3 on a scale from 1 to 5. That’s pretty impressive and I don’t see very often such great numbers on apps that help you to make money.

I understand why people are giving it so good numbers. The healthywage idea is great and execution is even better.

5) HealthyWage BBB – The Best Possible Rating on Better Business Bureau

HealthyWage has been rated as A+ on BBB website. You may already know that it’s not easy to get that rating so it’s already a great indicator that their service/product is great.

There are probably, even more, reasons why HealthyWage will be beneficial for you. Feel free to leave them below in the comments.

How to Earn Money Easily with HealthyWage? – My Secret Tip!

It’s quite easy to make some money with HealthyWage. You have probably heard that many bodybuilders use 2 phases: bulk and diet. When they are bulking they eat a lot and gain weight (muscle+fat). Then they want to get rid of the extra fat and them diet. You can use the same idea. When you start out your challenge you can make sure that it’ll be easy for you to lose weight.

Get a few extra kilos before the first weigh in. I have gained once 10 kilos in 3-4 months when I went to the gym and I was bulking. It can be done even faster if you want. Then you just lose those kilos after starting a challenge. You get fit by losing extra fat.

Then if your deadline is coming closer and you still haven’t reached your goal weight, I recommend taking a few days without eating. It’ll lose a few kilos quite fast. Then you just take a weigh in and start eating normally.

HealthyWage has a “yo-yo rule” to prevent misbehavior of their app. It means that when you use their challenge for going from 250 lbs to 230 lbs, the next goal can’t start higher than 230 lbs. Otherwise, people could just yo-yo their weight up and down to take all the money.

Conclusion – Is HealthyWage Legit?

Definitely yes. There isn’t a single reason why their service wouldn’t be legitimate. They have paid thousands of people all around the world during more than 8 years.

The healthywage average prize for challenge winners is $1,331 which already a significant amount of money. Some members including Anastasia (in the picture below) have earned even $10,000 for reaching her goal. You can click the picture to read the full story.

    Literally, here comes the very common and true saying Health is Wealth. Very ideal for people who are struggling and no motivation to lose weight, this a great chance for them to take advantage the opportunity to be fit and gain money from it.

    I like how HealthyWage works, it encourages people to break their bad habit from becoming fit and healthy. Very tempting.

      I haven’t heard that saying before but I’m happy that you shared it with. I love motivational quotes and wisdom.

      Yeah, HealthyWage is great. What else can I say? 😉

    Never heard of this app, but it sounds great. Since you say this program is available in Asia, I want to try this. I think I am good at losing weight. I have experience of losing 6 kg in four weeks. I am always looking for motivation to lose weight and I believe this program can help me lose extra kilos.

    • Roope Kiuttu September 1, 2017 at 10:25 pm - Reply

      Sounds great! You’ll earn some good money using this app. Based on my experience it’s even easier to lose weight in Asia than here in Austria/Finland where I live because it’s hotter there. 😉

      I was last year two months in Indonesia and I lost 7-8kgs quite easily. Maybe I should have joined a HealthyWage challenge before that so I would have earned a good money for losing those kilos.

    Healthy Wage seems pretty amazing based on the motivation it gives the consumers. It absolutely makes you want to try harder and gives you the drive to work harder on self-improvement. It’s really dope. Can’t wait to see what else they’ll have for the future!!

      Hi Ishmael,

      you are right. HealthyWage gives the motivation to become a better person and to reach the goals you’ve always wanted. Setting and reaching goals is one of the most important keys to success.

    I’ve seen many websites like this in your articles, but it seems this is the best of all. I’d definitely recommend this to some friends that are unmotivated, no one would feel unmotivated after reading this article and visit the website!

    Awesome page, excellent concept, great amount of earnings and helps you being more healthy! Excellent article Roope.

      Hi Wizkha,

      yeah, HealthyWage is a wonderful concept. If I would be overweight, I would definitely place a bet on their website to earn money. I recommend their service for my friends who need motivation for losing weight.

    Wow! This is quite a fantastic concept for people who want to lose weight. Not only do you bet your OWN money for you to achieve your target goal but you EARN money in return for it, sometimes even double if I’m not mistaken.

    This review of the HealthyWage application/website is one of the best that I’ve read so far, very professional and exact. It really helped me understand a lot further how HealthyWage works and how I can benefit from it. Great job!

      Hi Suavecito,

      the concept of HealthyWage is great and their execution also works. There are some similar apps but they don’t make it to the same level as HealthyWage. I’m glad that there are apps like HW that help people to reach their weight loss goals and earn money at the same time.

    I just came from the other weight loss website you reviewed, since this one’s way better. It’s crazy that someone got such an interesting idea to make money out of something as important yet “uninteresting” as losing weight. I’m looking at the website and I’m amazed at the earning rates, I’m totally going to recommend this one to some members of my family that have obesity problems and they can’t get an incentive to start losing weight right now.

    Thanks Roope!

      Hi Alexander,

      I totally love the idea of HealthyWage. You can reach your physical goals while earning money at the same time. HealthyWage is a great motivator for people who need to lose weight.


  7. Anthope August 10, 2017 at 1:56 pm - Reply

    I think it is not a scam. The site is mainly focused on letting people lose their weight and even get paid for doing so.

    I see it as a kind of motivation because a lot of people are lazy and faff around thinking they’ve got the time, but trust me when anything like a request or task is inclined with money, the thing gets done faster. So I believe the site helps you to get motivated and determined by placing your bet

    • Roope Kiuttu August 10, 2017 at 2:05 pm - Reply

      Hi Anthope,

      HealthyWage is not a scam and most of their members are recommending the service for other people as well.

      That’s a good point. When money is on the line, many people get motivated. It’s pretty interesting!

  8. Pink_Turtle August 8, 2017 at 6:59 pm - Reply

    Well this was a nice and surpricing article! thank you. Losing weight is hard work for me but motivation is the key to success when it comes to losing some weight and what better motivation than money?

    I found the site very interesting and I even calculated my own bet… I’ll get 387,96 $ just betting 20 $ a month. Seems very profitable for something that’s going to make you healthier!

    • Roope Kiuttu August 9, 2017 at 1:53 pm - Reply

      Hi Pink_Turtle,

      it’s true that money motivates many people. HealthyWage was inspired by studies conducted in Harvard and other universities that noticed the relation between achievement of weight loss challenges and money incentives.

      Sounds great!


  9. nour August 8, 2017 at 1:45 pm - Reply

    Great concept! More people should know about this because it’s a really smart way to motivate people.

    However, I am happy with my weight at the moment and would not be interested in joining but I know countless of people who would be interested.

    • Roope Kiuttu August 8, 2017 at 2:27 pm - Reply

      Hi Nour,

      yeah, HealthyWage is definitely a great concept. Share this post with your friends who could benefit from HealthyWage. You could help them to make a big positive change in their lives!


  10. Rosette August 8, 2017 at 3:49 am - Reply

    I love the concept of this website! Obesity is definitely a problem and we’re running out of ways to fight against it in the world, but this is perhaps the most effective and creative way to tackle the issue. Pay out rewards for it! That fills people with determination and that translates into motivation to fulfill the goal.

    My only concern about this website isn’t exactly related to the revenue side, but it’s more of a health issue. I think this kind of monetary incentive may motivate some people to start certain unhealthy weight-losing activities in order to reach the goal before the deadline. Skipping food, not eating, inducing vomit, among others, are quick ways to lose weight, but also put people’s health at risk.

    I am not sure people would go that far for the monetary incentive, but it’s a risk that is still worth considering.

    • Roope Kiuttu August 8, 2017 at 6:20 am - Reply

      Hi Rosette,

      yeah, there’s for sure that risk. However, your minimum time for reaching your goal is 6 months so there’s definitely enough time to reach that goal with normal methods as well.


  11. kingcool52 August 7, 2017 at 9:21 pm - Reply

    Wow. Thanks for the great and honest review. I was not expecting this to be a legitimate service, to be honest. It sounded too good. I mean who doesn’t like to lose weight and earn money at the same time. It’s a great idea and I’m sure they earn quite a lot of money with certain money giving up halfway through or forgetting about their bets.

    I can’t remember if you wrote it in your post, but are we allowed to choose a target based on our current weight or do they pick your target? I doubt it would be much help to me, I’m about average weight so losing weight would not be good for me.

    • Roope Kiuttu August 8, 2017 at 6:15 am - Reply

      Hi Kingcool,

      I was also surprised how great HealthyWage is. I was a bit suspicious because I had seen a similar app that wasn’t so good. But HealthyWage is a legitimate company and they’ll pay you what they have promised.

      You can choose your own target. The higher the goal, the more you’ll get paid.


  12. Dustin August 7, 2017 at 12:40 pm - Reply

    This is a fascinating concept and confirms a lot of human behavioral studies that suggests we are much more successful when held accountable.

    I’m curious what the downside risk is. You said you could make up to 10 grand. Does that mean that you could also lose that much if you don’t hit your goal?

    • Roope Kiuttu August 8, 2017 at 4:58 am - Reply

      Hi Dustin,

      You can decide your bet before starting your challenge. If you don’t achieve your goal, you lose the bet that you have set. That’s why it motivates you to make it 😉
