I have played about four 6-month games and a couple of one-month games. I have won some, and I have lost some. I have seen some people complain that they were taken for their money, but I think it boils down to understanding the rules.
There are verified weigh-ins and you can also submit unverified weigh-ins. In order to win, you HAVE to have verified (including two pictures) weigh-in submitted to them AND verified by them within a 48-hour window. It's up to the players to make sure they are done properly within the allotted time frame (which is announce an entire month ahead of time). The percentage of winners is usually around 50% in the games I've played, so I win back 1.5 times the money I put in after DietBet's cut.
My player number 408843 if anyone wants to verify that I am a legit player.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
