Wii - It Does the Body Good

Wii seems like it might be the answer to America’s weight issue. The video game gets you moving and moving your body helps you lose weight.

One Wii user conducted his own 6 week weight loss experiment with games from the Wii Sports package. Playing the video games everyday for 30 minutes, he charted his weight, body fat content and resting heart rate. He changed nothing else about his daily life – he didn’t eat less. In fact it was during the holidays and it sounds like he enjoyed all his holiday meals. He lost 9 pounds and 2 percent body fat. Not bad for only playing video games.

Check out this website to see more details, videos and photos. My favorite photo is his Rocky moment, standing on the Philadelphia Art Museum steps in old school gray sweats.

It was hard to find a Wii for around the holidays, but you can order one from
