    Old Article, but I hadn't seen it before: Link

    What?!? I can't eat chocolate bars and chips on the couch while playing Wii Sports and expect to lose weight?

    I guess it turns out that exercising the old fashioned way, and eating healthier is still the best way to lose weight... who knew :lol:. Not that Wii Sports can't be an addition to an already effective work-out routine.

    Did people really expect it to work? Dance mats don't even give you much of a workout.

    You just wait until WiiFit comes out. I'll lose 20 lbs in one week.

    Yea, I already have a gym membership I don't use, but if I didn't have that membership, I would totally buy Wii Fit to not use it too... :smilewinkgrin:

    Well there has been people losing weight and they have credited it to the Wii.
    Although its really them cutting back on the Doritos and Pepsi thats doing it.

    Oh well, Wii Fit looks really good though.
    Comes in its own cute little box, much like the Wii console itself.

    The Wii as exercise was such a fantasy. Wii Fit should probably be called Wii Superficial Basic Yoga.

    *LOL* Of course not........you can't expect to eat everything you want, play some Wii, and lose anything.....no more than you can expect to eat what you want, walk 3 times a week, and still lose weight...unless your metabolism is very high, it ain't happening.

    However, if you don't do any physical activity, and play Wii, you're moving.....and that's good for your heart, if not that effective for your weight. On that note however, people HAVE lost weight by watching what they eat AND playing the Wii on a regular basis, I know, because I'm one of them.

    Lastly, it's a matter of common sense.....if you're playing Wii boxing, and you're sweating/moving around for 30 minutes.....you're using the same muscles as you would doing most other cardio excercises......so how could you not burn fat that way?

    I'm surprised nobody has come out with Wiimote weights or heavy controllers.
