A woman shows her prize of 4g of gold which she won as part of the "Your Weight in Gold" contest in Dubai November 7, 2013. The Dubai government launched "Your Weight in Gold", a 30-day weight-loss challenge in July, paying residents in gold for losing extra pounds as part of a government campaign to fight growing obesity in the Gulf Arab emirate. The top three dieters stood a chance to win gold coins worth up to 20,000 dirhams ($5,400), and a contestant has to lose a minimum 2 kgs (4.4 pounds) to qualify for the contest.
