Guy Loses 9lbs Playing Nintendo Wii

Ever since the Wii came out, we’ve wondered if you could lose weight by playing it. Apparently, you can:

    Six weeks ago, I began what has become a huge obsession of mine. It is called the “Wii Sports Experiment” (Read my original announcement of this from Early December ’06). I outlined a 6 week game plan for myself, the idea being that I would continue ALL normal activity and eating habits, and simply add 30 minutes of Wii Sports to my day. For the past month and a half, I’ve stuck to these guidelines very strictly.

Dude lost 9lbs! Not a “miracle diet” (he actually didn’t diet at all,) but miracle diets are lame, anyway.—MEGHANN MARCO
