UPDATE 1: I gathered some of the media appearances I made world wide, you can watch, listen, and read them here.

UPDATE 2: 3 independent studies from California State University, West Virginia, and Liverpool John Moores University have all concluded that the Wii is a viable workout:
“Kids burn 40% more calories”

“Through our testing it is clear that the motion sensor-controlled console can make an impact on a child’s heart rate, energy expenditure and the amount of calories burned”

Read about the studies, here and here

————————————-

Six weeks ago (December 3rd, 2006), 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.

For those of you not familiar with “Wii Sports”, you can watch a video review of the game and find out what it’s all about, here

I’ve been meticulously keeping track of the following for the past 6 weeks:

– Weight
– BMI
– Calories burned per session/per game (via BioTrainer, thanks Nancy!)
– Body fat % (via a Digital Body Fat Caliper and a body fat scale)
– Heart Rate (at rest)
– Wii Fitness Age
– Additional Notes/Soreness

I found out about traineo.com too late into my experiment, but I’ve now started tracking my data on their website. Traineo is a free and simple website that gives you the motivation and support to reach your weight loss and fitness goals. I definitely recommend checking them out.

Before I get into to this, make sure to check out the original announcement of the experiment and read some of the comments, I took most of the suggestions and tips into consideration. I wanted to make sure that I gathered the most honest and accurate data I could.

The day before the experiment I decided to do some training with the Wiimote, enjoy:

720×356, 320.59MB

Weight:
For most people this is their most anticipated category. To be honest, I was genuinely surprised by my end results, so I’ll just get right to it. I lost 9lbs! Obviously this doesn’t compare to Jared and the Subway diet, but I started out at a weight that I’ve been at for the past 2 years. My weight has really never fluctuated from 180lbs. in those two years, this makes the weight loss that much more of an accomplishment for me, considering I did not change anything I ate or did. Also, this experiment took place during the holiday season, where I ate holiday dinners like I normally would and drank what I normally would have drank. One last variable I had working against me was the winter season, I did not get any outdoor exercise that I normally would have got in the warmer months. (I do have to admit it has been a mild Philly winter so far)

I was pretty surprised by these shots, In the side shot photos I can see a noticeable reduction in my belly area, upper chest, and my neck/chin area. (and no, my ass didn’t shrink, my pants are bunched up in the “before” photo). In the front facing shots I noticed an obvious visual difference in my body fat. My after picture reveals some abs that were hidden under those 9lbs. of flab. I also see my “love handle” area was reduced, smaller neck, smaller upper chest and better muscle definition. (granted I’m no body builder, but I do see some muscles in there, I think). These pictures were taken using the same lighting, same camera, same time of day, and I tried to stand in the same position. No “sucking in” or “tightening up”, all four shots were taken under the same exact conditions as much as I could control.

Mini Update: I’ve read a few comments from people saying that the forward facing after shot looked “manipulated”. I decided to upload a picture directly from my camera to put those in doubt, at rest. Here is an after photo with no color correction, cropping, contrast adjusting, etc… View it here.

To make sure I kept an accurate reading through out, I bought a professional scale and weighed myself 3 times each day for 6 weeks. I decided that I would weigh-in first thing in the morning, directly after work, and right before bed. I averaged each weigh-in per day and made a graph:
Weight Loss, graph
Click image to view it larger

BMI (Body Mass Index):
– Before: 25.2
– After: 24.0

According to the Heart Lung and Blood Institute, my BMI indicated I was overweight before I started and now I’m at a normal BMI. There is one catch though, your BMI is meant to broadly categorize populations for purely statistical purposes. So, its accuracy in relation to actual levels of body fat is easily distorted by such factors as fitness level, muscle mass, bone structure, gender, and ethnicity. So, take these readings with a grain of salt…

On a more obvious note, my waist (around the belly button/gut) went from 34.5″ to 31″.

Calories:
For my experiment I stuck to four main games and my fitness test (which randomly chooses three games to test your “Fitness Age”). I did calorie experiments for the following, here is what I found after averaging 15 minutes of “aggressive” play during 3 different days.

Mini Update: I just wanted to address a couple of the concerns brought up about calories I burned during my tests. I was using this to measure calories, http://www.biotrainerusa.com. According the instruction manual, it uses a tri-axis accelerometer with a patented super-microprocessor, the BioTrainer is able to measure the inertia of your body’s motion 40-times per second, process the data, and then accurately calculate energy expenditure (in either calories burned or activity units).

I used the BioTrainer three times per game, so I can’t say the results of the burned calories are 100% accurate. I just reported what device measured. For instance, if I kept my waist relatively still (that’s where I attached the BioTrainer) it may not count the calories of my arm motions as accurately as a more advanced heart monitored lab study.

– Tennis: Coming in a close second, Wii Tennis was the runner up in calorie burning activities for Wii Sports. I burned an average of 92 calories during a 15 minute period. Like most of my game playing during the experiment I played each game fairly aggressively and would perform full swings, move left and right, and not take any breaks.

– Bowling: One of my favorite Wii Sports games also clocked in at the lowest of the three games I tested for calorie burn. I burned an average of 77 calories during a 15 minute period. Again, I played aggressively, taken steps toward the lane and bowling with a full swing of the arm. No breaks were taken and I played the game fairly quickly.

– Boxing: The clear winner here. I burned and average of 125 calories during a 15 minute period. I would like to point out that I would punch with full power, move as if I were really dodging, and hoped/bounced around like a real boxer would.

– Baseball: I didn’t get a chance to run the calorie test on baseball, no reason… I was just pressed for time and didn’t get around to it, I love baseball don’t get me wrong.

Here is a compilation of footage I shot throughout the six weeks:

Body Fat %:
For most fitness guru’s and I guess the real question here, was “How much body fat did I lose?” The answer, a fairly significant amount. I took my body fat once a week (sometimes twice) using two methods, one was a Digital Body Fat Caliper and the other a body fat scale. I averaged the readings of the two and here are the results:

– Before: 19%
– After: 17.2%

According to The American Council on Exercise, I went from being in the “acceptable” category to being in the “fitness” category. This data really shows a lot of what I accomplished. I lost almost 2% of my body fat by doing nothing more than playing video games for an extra 30 minutes everyday.

My goal now (after the experiment has ended) is to get to 14% body fat, and I’ll be doing that by continuing my experiment even after it’s over. It’s funny how once you start something that you HAVE to do everyday, you begin to miss it if you don’t do it, even if you find it tiring or unpleasant. (Reminds of the kid in the book “How to eat fried worms” and how he continued to eat worms even after his bet was over.)

Heart Rate:
To be honest with you I only checked this when I started and when I stopped, so I don’t think the results are as rock solid as some of the others, non-the-less I saw a slight decrease in my resting heart rate.

– Before: 82
– After: 68

Wii Fitness Age:
This really has nothing to with actual fitness, considering a lot of the games score your Wii Fitness Age based on skill more than your fitness or endurance levels, even so I started at a fitness age of 46 and then after that I never went below 30 for the entire six weeks. I hit the lowest Wii Fitness Age on January 4th, with an age of 20.

Some other quick Wii stats: I’m Pro in Tennis with a 1876 score, pro in Bowling with a score of 1345 (high score 257, should be 300, but my dogs got in my way!), pro in boxing with a score of 1120.

Gathering data

Additional Notes/Soreness:
I left this area open to just talk about my daily regiment and to address any other issues that may have come up.

One of those issues that has gotten a lot of media attention is something dubbed “Wii elbow“, this seems to occur after your first few sessions of playing Wii Sports. I have to say I was not immune, my first 3-5 days were brutal. I was sore from shoulder to wrist, I even went as far as purchasing an Icy/Hot patch to sooth my pain. I remember sitting at work and just massaging my shoulder for hours, it really made me sore. I suppose this effect occurs when starting any new physical activity outside of your daily routine, so it’s really not an amazing discovery or anything, just a testament to the physical strain Wii Sports actually puts on your body.

Another area grabbing A LOT of media attention is the phenomenon of the “flying Wii remote”, dozens of websites sprung up showing off damages to brand new TV’s, broken remotes, and all sorts of cuts and bruises. I considered most of these accidents to be the fault of the user and I sadly found out I was right. My girlfriend was on the couch behind me using my G4 PowerBook, I was in front of her bowling a decent game in Wii Bowling. I was getting a little too into it when I did a large back swing, came around the laptop and on my forward swing I smashed the laptop monitor with a great deal of force. The monitor’s right hinge snapped off and the monitor went dead. Luckily, the monitor now comes back on, but it’s only supported by the left hinge, which makes for one wobbly laptop. So, the lesson is to take heed of the warnings that are posted before each game of Wii Sports, make sure nobody or nothing is in your striking distance.

I’d like to think that my experiment proves one or two things:

A.) You get back whatever you put into something.
b.) Video games can and are a great way to have exercise and not even know you are burning calories.

To talk a little more about “A”, I feel like a played Wii Sports everyday for 6 weeks in a semi-aggressive way. I moved my feet, I used full body motion, and I swung my arms to mimic the real thing. If you just stand there and make small moves or sit on the couch and play, I don’t think you’ll much if any results regarding exercise.

So, there you have it 21 hours of gaming, with some surprising results (for me). Feel free to ask me any questions or if you’d like to see some raw data.

7 MONTHS LATER, UPDATE:

It appears that this experiment (and the fans who were inspired to create their own workouts) may have inspired Nintendo to take advantage of the “buzz”. Have a listen:

Reggie Fil-Aime (President of Nintendo of America): “Our objective with Wii Fit is all about expanding the audience and taking advantage of what our consumers are already doing with Wii Sports, they’re using it to workout and lose weight this [Wii Fit] just drives it in a whole new way”

You may or may not have heard that I had a book in the works, I had a terrific literary agent, a great ghost writer and even a publisher! The only thing that stopped the book from going to the presses was the fact that the publisher wanted Nintendo’s “blessing” in order to proceed (not an endorsement or sponsorship, just a letter from Nintendo saying it was OK to do the book).

After about 2 months in Nintendo’s legal department they got back to me with a letter saying they can have nothing to do with book, Nintendo could not even provide a statement saying they would not sue. It was a big blow to all of us, and I can see why Nintendo wants to protect their intellectual property. It just makes me cringe when Reggie Fil-Aime (President of NoA) says that Nintendo’s objective for Wii Fit is to “take advantage of what consumers are already doing with Wii Sports.” It’s almost a direct insult…

They did have a bunch of video of me at E3 on the big screens behind Reggie when they introduced Wii Fit, I guess that will have to suffice:
wii fit

Never the less, I still love Nintendo and play the Wii/DS everyday, go Nintendo go!

PS. I still have kept all the weight off and be on the look out for the Wii Fit experiment starting April 2008!

    Hey, Suburbia!

    Let me be the first to say: Congratulations!!

    One quick note. In the paragraph before the weight loss graph, you mentioned you weighed yourself three times a day for 6 months, but I’m guessing you meant 6 weeks?

    I love this website. Always something new every day. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t check it out. How much traffic are you getting?

    its takes 3500 kcal to burn 1 pound of fat. You lost 9 lbs. If your caloric energy balance remained unchanged this means you would have to burn 750 calories a day.

    I’m glad you lost weight and I’m glad you are motivating people to become more active but its unlikely that your results are typical. cool site though. I dugg it.

    Sorry, but your numbers just don’t add up. Based on your numbers for each sport, if you played each equally over hte 6 weeks, and truly for just 30 minutes a day, you would have burned just 8200 calories, which is less than 2.5 pounds.

    Even if you boxed the entire time your calories burned would be just 3 pounds worth.

    You either subconsciously ate less, or you lost a whole bunch of water weight. Not to menton…9 pounds lost would NOT decrease your waist size by 2.5 inches.

    I also find it hard to believe that you got your Nintendo Wii and then only played it 30 minutes a day when everyone else was playing it 5 hours a day.

    Also, merely watching TV for 21 hours burns 1700 calories. So really, you only burned an additonal 6500 calories by playing Wii, by your own numbers. That is less than 2 pounds.

    LEt me ask you…before you got your Wii, what exactly were you doing? Possibly surfing the internet or watching TV…while SNACKING on high calories foods, perhaps?

    Man, that sounds great. I’m definitely gonna try this out. I’ve been puttin far too much weight on since Uni, and if this can at the very least help me lose a little weight, then I’ll be happy.

    I’m gonna give it a go. I’ll come back if I’ve gotten anywhere 😛

    Congratulations on the loss in weight success.

    It is a good usage.
    Attention seems to be attracted in boxing,
    combative sports, and minor sports depending
    on the usage of Wii, and the presentiment in
    which being interested depending on
    the idea seems to happen does.

    Congratulations on the loss in weight success.

    It is a good usage.
    Attention seems to be attracted in boxing,
    combative sports, and minor sports depending
    on the usage of Wii, and the presentiment in
    which being interested depending on
    the idea seems to happen does.

    so 77 – 125 calories burned per 15 minutes, and he said he did it for 6 weeks, 30 minutes a day which is 21 hours total. figure average 400 calories burned per hour x 21 hours, and that’s 8400 calories burned. 3500 calories burned = 1 lb. Based on the calories burned, he should have lost 2.4 lbs.

    even if you put the max 125 calories down for a 15 minute period, that still only accounts for 4 lbs lost. So maybe he was burning more calories than he thought? not really likely either, to burn the calories to actually lose 9 lbs of real weight in 21 hours, you’d need to run on a treadmill at over 10 mph for all of it, being someone his size.

    sorry to ruin the magic of the idea, but there’s more to the story, either water weight loss, or changed eating habits, or he did other exercise, etc.

    Id like to see this with the diet listed as well. I’d alsoassume he played more Wii Sports on the side, but that’s something that would be part of his daily life regardless of this experiment (aka playing games with his friends, etc). So, yes, he probably burnt more on the Wii then listed, but if you went on this “experiment” yourself, would you quit playing any other Wii games aside from the 30 minute requirement? Obviously you would play more then the 30 minutes if friends came over. It’s the same as if you went to the gym and your friends asked you to play the Wii later. You would still play it even though you worked out.

    But ya, good job on the experiment. The daily diet would be the only thing you left out of this. Saying you ate “what you normally eat” plus Xmas stuff doenst help if you are someone that eats a grapefruit for breakfast, some yogurt for lunch and a small salad for dinner and hates sweets. Even a list of average meals for you would be more useful.

    Alex: your raw calculations are correct except you are leaving out the idea that as he worked out each day he was building lean muscles and increasing his metabolism so that every day his resting calorie burn would be increasing more and more – on top of those direct calories consumed while actually playing the game.

    edward, i agree there are more factors to the calcs, but i don’t believe he would have had that much of an impact on his metabolism in 6 weeks. regardless, even starting off with that kind of momentum, it’s not something others can expect to match, nor would he be able to maintain that rate of loss doing the same plan.

    and congrats on the weight loss. I went from 450 -> 225 (yes no type) in about 2 and a half years through simple controlled calorie dieting (no surgery), light circuit training, and cardio, so I’m fairly knowledgeable on the subject myself 😉

    Awesome- great job! I just want to point out that you didn’t lose only 2% of your body fat. You lost 9.5% of your body fat! You went from 19% to 17.2%. That 19% body fat represents 100% of the fat you have in your body. The reduction to 17.2% is a reduction of 9.47% of your original amount of fat.

    Again, great job; very inspiring!

    Someone should definitely start a website for Wii Sports weight loss where ppl can post their diet and Wii Sports activities for the day. There could be forums, blogs, weigh ins, etc…the possibilities are endless, yea Nintendo!!

    To all who have poo’d all over this guy for not burning enough calories and losing weight via video games instead of traditional exercise…I say BOO to you!! I personally hate exercise because it’s boring but since I’ve gotten the Wii I’ve lost 5 lbs from boxing. Everyone knows that in the beginning of a “diet” you lose water weight. Plus I’m sure he had to drink more water or something to replenish fluids. He should be applauded, not dissed for this! The Wii is the best and most innovative gaming system ever. And this comes from a person who has every gaming system and is getting an XBox 360 when I get enough money. But the Wii is the best thing EVER period. And it is not expensive when compared to the price of a monthly gym membership.

    fashionista – i think it’s great that he’s doing what he’s doing and that he lost the weight. I think a Wii could be a great tool to burn some extra calories and get extra activity while having fun, and i think it’s awesome that nintendo brought it out. considering this whole country is basically overweight and the gaming industry holds their own little part of the reasons for that, it’s awesome to see something to counter it come out. but i also think it’s very unrealistic to expect that anyone can do exactly what he did and see the same results. and if you’re really serious about weight loss, there are much better ways to go about doing it.

    Great job! You’ve convinced me to get a Wii when our store gets them in stock this weekend.

    To everyone stuck on numbers don’t be. The body is a funny thing. People can stall for months yet they’ve burned off enough calories to where they should be loosing.

    Also you have to take into consideration that when you exercise, you continue to burn at a higher rate for several hours after you are done. There is no way to track just how much.

    Also, he was doing an activity he’d never done before. That means his body wasn’t use to it and he could have burned even more to compensate. There are just to many variables you have to take into consideration instead of saying he only burned this so he should have only lost that. It does not work that way, its different from every person.

    Also saying he couldn’t have lost those inches off his waist from only loosing 9 pounds is completely wrong. You can loose inches and not drop a single pound of scale weight. Give the man a break..

    Excellant experiment. I had been looking forward to seeing your results. Considering you weren’t that out of shape to begin with makes it even more impressive.

    Just a comment for the naysayers. When you exercise you increase your overall metabolism. E.g. if you work out for 30 minutes and then go sit down for an hour, you burn more calories during that hour of sitting than if you had just sat down for an hour without exercising first. Doing calculations based on calories burned just during the exercise misses this additional benefit.

    Also, assuming the weight and body fat numbers are correct, he started with 34.39 lbs of body fat (at 181 lbs total) and finished with 29.58 lbs of body fat (at 172 lbs total). This is a loss of 4.81 lbs of fat. I believe that comes out to about 400kcal/day.

    Where did the rest of the weight loss come from? I can think of two things. As you exercise you tend to drink more water, and as you do, your body retains less water. So over time you will lose water weight. Secondly, a “normal” person can easily have 5 lbs or more of fecal matter in their colon and large intestine. Exercise generally improves the digestive process and part of this would be cleansed.

    But what it boils down to is that there are significant benefits from regular exercise, regardless of what form it takes.

    I read somewhere Nintendo is thinking of making sensors for your shins so you can get a little kicking in your game. I think if they do it, this will put them even more over the top. I’m 41, I haven’t actually bought a console for myself since NES.. I’ve bought plenty over the years for my kids, but the Wii is the first one i’m going to buy for me in over 15 years.

    Glad to see Nintendo retaking their crown!

    I read somewhere Nintendo is thinking of making sensors for your shins so you can get a little kicking in your game. I think if they do it, this will put them even more over the top. I’m 41, I haven’t actually bought a console for myself since NES.. I’ve bought plenty over the years for my kids, but the Wii is the first one i’m going to buy for me in over 15 years.

    Glad to see Nintendo retaking their crown!

    Oh for the DDR people. I ready Nintendo is getting Dance factory in March, but haven’t seen any details about it yet.

    Well maybe I should play more Wii Sports instead of Mavel Ultimate Alliance which as such doesn’t require much movement at all.

    If anyone was wondering, he doesn’t work for Nintendo. He’s a local Philadelphian (I live in philly too), and I’ve met him before (he gave me free tickets to see X-Men 3 last year). I’m not sure what his regular day job is, but I know he’s really just a huge Nintendo fan; not one of their employees.

    another word regarding the calorie calculations. i think that the calorie monitoring thingy was very wrong. looking at calorie-count.com, they list the avg hourly calories burned for low impact aerobics as 782/hr, or, 391 per 30min interval. high impact aerobics are even more, of course, and boxing is listed at around 1400/hr.

    i would think that the wii activity (considering the previous observations about the measuring device being worn by the experimenter on the hip and not on the arms, where most of the ‘work’ was taking place) would probably have been closer to 300 cal/30min than the very modest 125/30min measured in the experiment.

    you can look on the activity browser for calorie-counter.com:

    http://www.calorie-count.com/calories/activity/39.html

    and see if you can find something on there which you think better approximates your wii workout than low impact aerobics. for instance, walking very slowly is listed as burning 312 cal/hr. that’s more than the highest measurement you got on the device you were using for boxing. (looking into the calorie differential has made me NOT want to spend 49.95 on that gadget).

    thanks for this experiment. this is great. i’ll be getting a wii at tax time. i hope that i can burn as many calories playing ultimate avengers.

    Some Body Composition Analysis:

    Initial:
    181 weight(lb) and 19% fat
    that means 34 lb fat, 147 lb lean body mass (muscles)

    after 6 weeks:
    172 weight(lb) and 17.2% fat
    that means 29 lb fat, 143 lb lean body mass

    Conclusion: Although it’s great exercising while having fun, from the results you can conclude that Wii sports is similar to jogging or running. It will help you loose weight, but you’ve also lost some muscle (lean body mass) – 4 pounds actually.

    You could probably improve results significantly playing more aggressive games, thus having higher heart rate. You could probably effectively combine this program with lifting weights 3 times a week to increase lean body mass or keep it the same while loosing just body fat.

    Also these results would vary if you’re in trained/untrained state or you’ve had a really good physique.

    Overall really impressive for video games!
    Good luck to all!

    I bike every day to campus for 45 min (and 45 min back) and I don’t notice any weight lost, not even 1/4 lbs a day and you manage to lose 1/2lbs per day by playing computer games for 30 min??? Either you are leaving out some info or your chart ain’t correct.

    Hey, great job! I was trying to look, but I don’t see this info anywhere on here…How tall are you?

    I weight 180lbs and I’m considerably overweight with moderate flab to get rid of and I’m 5’8″.

    You started off being 180 but you look great before the transormation, so I”m guessing you over 6′?

    Anyway, great stuff, and congrats.

    PS> I’ve lost 40 lbs on a raw food diet (no exercise, nothing extra…just simple raw food) for 2 months in the summer of 2004…I’ve gained it all back when I started eating “regular” cooked foods again. I kind of wish I had kept a log/record like you.

    PS> I’ve lost 40 lbs on a raw food diet (no exercise, nothing extra…just simple raw food) for 2 months in the summer of 2004…I’ve gained it all back when I started eating “regular” cooked foods again. I kind of wish I had kept a log/record like you.

    Yer right, lullo, everyone should quit excercising, it’s stupid. What kind of car are you buying? I think you should get a Hummer, they’re great for burning ‘calories’ hahahah lolz omg friend me!

    Seriously, you’re missing the point. Adding a bit of excercise daily to ANY person’s routine has positive benefits. This dude did it with a Wii, you do it biking to work/campus. (Cept, I don’t belive you do that, you’re a troll, and their legs are too short to use bicycles.)

    I think a better diet is the DDR diet. I can get twice the workout playing 30 minutes on Heavy mode or Challenge, and get to a sweat quickly. It also greatly improves foot eye coordination (if thats important), much more then the Wii. Plus, to make things better, it has a workout mode on some of the games to record calories burned and more (I’ve only seen workout mode once so I don’t remember everything). For me though, I am underweight for my size so I try not to get too much of a workout, although I could probably go through an hour of Heavy/Challenge mode. DDR is how I got leg muscle though =)

    Although I do agree that the extra movement involved will burn more calories. They need to make a game that integrates a treadmill or stair stepper into the game-play then you’d really shed some weight…

    Great article and I may just give this a try to see how it works for me. The one problem I have with exercise is that it is not fun at all, especially when done alone. And most of the time, you have to do it alone.

    I’d love to see a Wii Exercise game come out that is designed to be fun and to get you a good workout. Wii Sports is great, but bowling, baseball, & golf really don’t get the heart pumpin… They can take the Wii Fitness Age idea and expand on it immensely.

    It’d be really cool to go through a warm up routine and then perform a bunch of strenuous events and games. It could keep track of scores, times, and maybe even give estimated calories burned and such. Warm up with some jumping jacks, arm circles, etc. Then start off with a mile jog…Swim a few laps (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke)…Run some sprints, maybe some with hurdles. Incorporate boxing, tennis, racquetball, fencing, and other track & field events in the middle of each workout. Choose to do a 30 or 60 minute workout.

    The system could have a predetermined workout every day based on information you give it. For instance, I am 6’3 and weigh about 225. I want to get down to 200. It could calculate a workout routine for me to follow on a daily basis to help reach my target weight. I could even enter in my actual weight on a regular basis to see my progress.

    Not looking for a workout at a given time? Then just select a game to play and play it.

    There’s a ton of stuff that could be done in a Wii Exercise game like that. I hope someone’s considering developing one. I’d buy it for the games on it but even more for the potential to help me keep in better shape. A whole new market may come on board with the Wii just to utilize something like this.

    I’ve started a Wii Sports/Super Swing Golf/DDR exercise and diet regimen. I started Monday with 1640 calories eaten and 30 mins of Wii Sports. Last night I ate the same and did one hour of Wii Sports (damn cpu tennis matches weren’t going my way!!). I weighed myself this morning and I’ve lost 2 lbs. I’m sure that will level off now, but I’m happy!!!

    I haven’t read all of the comments, just too many to read. However, I read a few that I will comment on. I have done plenty of diets and exercising in my life. Those of you that say that it doesn’t add up are not necessarily correct. I have just exercised and not changed anything else and have lost that kind of weight. I know that there’s the whole calorie equation on burning calories to lose pounds and all, but I don’t buy it. I think that there are plenty of times where the unexplainable happens. Why not lose 9 pounds with the activity he did while using the Wii? I know when I use it, I feel like I did a cardio workout. I’m not that out of shape either where I am just tired from standing up. I also think that losing 2.5 inches with 9 pounds is reasonable. I have lost a pant size with 10 pounds lost. I have taken body measurements on myself plenty of times. I have lost that much with losing 10 pounds. You have to all keep in mind that he is a man, men tend to lose weight easier and faster than women. Everyone is also very different in how they lose and gain weight. This is just one person telling us what he did and what happened. If you don’t believe his results then I suggest trying it yourself and having others try it and track everything so that you can prove him wrong that way without any equations.

I know that there’s the whole calorie equation on burning calories to lose pounds and all, but I don’t buy it. I think that there are plenty of times where the unexplainable happens. Why not lose 9 pounds with the activity he did while using the Wii? I know when I use it, I feel like I did a cardio workout. I’m not that out of shape either where I am just tired from standing up. I also think that losing 2.5 inches with 9 pounds is reasonable. I have lost a pant size with 10 pounds lost. I have taken body measurements on myself plenty of times. I have lost that much with losing 10 pounds. You have to all keep in mind that he is a man, men tend to lose weight easier and faster than women. Everyone is also very different in how they lose and gain weight. This is just one person telling us what he did and what happened. If you don’t believe his results then I suggest trying it yourself and having others try it and track everything so that you can prove him wrong that way without any equations.

    Wow…just go on a sensible, high protein, low carb diet and go to they gym 5 times a week for an hour…you will loose a lot of fat and put on some nice muscle. This is just downright sad…please get a life, you are a little old to be playing video games (maybe u need some redirection in your life?).

    Other than that, it was rather interesting, but definitely not the way to loose fat/put on muscle.

    That’s a really cool result but it means you would have probably gotten unusually fast results from any workout routine… some people benefit much much more quickly from exercise than others would get from the exact same routine.

    Hey Gmyjunkie, just take a hike with that frigging holier than thou attitude. Unlike you, normal people have more to life – family, job, kids etc. and are not entertained by the idea of trying to squeeze 5 hrs of gym time into an already hectic life so that they can flex their biceps at some stupid bar.

    Is it just me or did he look better when he was at 181? He had a lot more ass and he looked a bit more buff. I don’t know but he looked better before the weight was gone!

    Where are the stats on your gf? Looks like she didnt lose as much as you… not so active in the videos! LOL!

    P.S. You look severly cramped in the small space between your sofa and TV. Perhaps rearrange the room to give yourself/ves more aerobic space?

    Hey cool experiment man. I can relate a bit as I am about 180 and my weight hasn’t budged for about 6 years. I eat a horrible diet, and hack away on my pc 14 hours a day. So my fitness is crap since I started my own business basically. I’m not fat at all (thx to genetics) but I’m really not in good shape. Oh yea I smoke a pack a day. Drink at least 24 beers a week. and eat mostly meat and cheese. A heart attack waiting to happen. Anyhow I bought a Wii for me and the family because A. I thought it would be fun and B. aany excersize is better than none. Plus I love vid games. Warcraft FT, WOW, COH, Bf 2142, are just some of the games I own at. lol. Any how my 1st and 2nd day with the Wii have been awesome. I’m doing 1 to 2 hours on it going nuts. I really could care less about weight loss but I need to be breaking a sweat 4 or 5 times a week just to be healthy at 25 years old. The Wii has my sweating all over the place. I’m a bit sore that’s for sure. But I just showered after a long session while I’m writing this and honestly I’m going to go do some more. The Wii is totally worth it. (I paid $400) and what a great $400 dollar purchase. I’m stellarly pleased with it and so is my wife, 2 kids, sister and other friends. Everyone who has ployed it loves it.

    We have a living room the size of a raquetteball court and a 62 inch tv so that makes it pretty sweet.

    Anyhow I’m going back to play some more Wii. Great post, good job on keeping track, that itself requires discipline. I imagine playing the Wii was the easy part & fun part of this experience.

    Thats really great that that worked out for you….and I’m not going to say that its not an intruiging idea, and that i will indeed be playing more and that i will be playing more aggresively, but nevertheless, the fact that people on here are saying that this has “made their decision for them” about buying a wii, its just crazy!!! How much is it to pay for a membership to a gym? How much is that price combined with buying HEALTHY foods? Im not talking eating carrots everyday instead of anything else, i mean all you have to do is change a few factors in your life in order to have results like this. I understand that that was not the reason of your expiriment, that you arent trying to convince people that this is a new weight loss program, I’m just saying that people are taking it that way. Guess what, guys? Run 30 minutes a day for 6 weeks and I gurantee there will be some weight loss there, as well.

    Great job man! I lost 135 lbs. from just working man ass off at full capacity at believe it or not the factory I use to work at. I was a line leader and it required a whole lot of heavy lifting and running from one side of the warehouse to the other literally every 3 min’s. So I can see where this worked great for you. My beginning weight was 315 and I got my lowest to be 183. No I got layed off and lost my fience and am sadly up to 276. Hope this might work for me. Again man great job.

    People are saying you should go run for 30 minutes or visit a gym…here is my main issue with that…

    I have 2 young children and I can’t just leave to go to the gym or running. Also, whether we like it or not, we live in a busy (gogogo) society and employers expect you to keep up…Your fat boss does not care if you need to lose weight…

    The #1 reason people fail during weight loss attempts is that they get bored. If you can incorporate something you enjoy into creating a healthier lifestyle, MORE POWER TO YOU! It is not about what is the BEST way to lose weight, it is about doing what works for you. If you are a gamer, love playing the WII, and need to lose some weight, then get a little more deliberate/active in your movements and it just might work for you. How can anyone view this as anything but positive?

    When i first saw the commercial for wii my husband and i were discussing that the wii might be a good workout. Guess you had the same ideal. Glad its working for you. We are considering getting the wii ourselves and maybe i’ll set up some kind of daily training myself now that i know it can work. Its gotta be more fun then jogging or doing boring situps and jumping jacks. great blog. thanks

    Thanks man for some hope for myself. First of all, I’m proud to hear that you’re from Philly. It’s a small world when someone in your back yard found weight loss success with a game system. I purchased the Wii for my kids and never fully understood its power until recently. The kids love it and the adults love it even more. Thanks Nintendo. My Aunt mentioned to me the other day during a pause in her Wii bowling that she heard on the news that “some guy” lost weight playing the Wii. Well that inspired me, who happens to be 50lbs overweight to get started on your program. I’d really like to hear from you. The more motivation I have, the more I feel that I’ll be successfull. Thanks for your story and here’s to my Wii workout!!!!

    I love how internet goons will discuss any and everything.
    You clearly stated that for the experiment you played video games an ADDITIONAL 30 minutes to what you normally would every day, that you boxed far more than you did the other sports, and that the nine pounds weren’t necessarily all fat. But, eh.

    Great site, I hope that aside from inspiring people to have fun with Wii this also motivates game makers to make games that flex and excersize people in new ways. 🙂

    HOLALA.. !! C’est tout simplement impressionnant… Si ca marche pour moi aussi 😉
    Comme toi je joue au tennis, au bowling et à la boxe, mais aussi au baseball (Tu peux imaginer un francais qui joue au baseball…?)
    Et comme tu le fais, je “bouge” vraiment en jouant, pas vraiment les pieds, mais tout le reste du corps est est mouvement. Je ne joue pas tous les jours, mais je joue quand meme tres souvent.
    Quoiqu’il en soit, je ne sais pas si j’ai perdu du poids, mais je vais essayer de faire une séance de 30mn chaque jour dorénavant… Juste au cas ou… Je te préviendrai si ca marche pour moi. 😉

    (Désolé pour les francophones qui liront la version anglaise de mon post… je sais c’est pathétique)

    WOW !! That’s just so amazing… If it works for me too 😉
    As you do, I play tennis, bowling and boxing, and i also play base ball (Can you imagine a french man playing baseball…?).
    And like you, I move when i play, not really my feet and my legs, but from my belt to my head, all my body play !
    I don’t play everyday but i really often play. Anyway, i don’t know if i lost weight, but i’m gonna try doing 30 minutes sessions every day now… Just in case… i’ll tell you if it works for me. 😉

    I happened on this link via Reg Hardware and man, am I impressed. I’ve hit the 30 years-old wall and the weight’s starting to accumulate from the hours and hours at my desk job. I’ve been itching for a Wii since it was still being called the Revolution, but your experiment has really upped the “want” factor. Hopefully the supply will soon meet demand and I can get my hands on one.

    You sir, are my hero… not only for your successful Wii experiment and the cheeky Rocky tribute, but because I didn’t know there were still fellow Plow United fans out there. Cheers!

    I think that if you can combine FUN with fitness, that is what is most important. I have gone to the gym many a time and I find myself getting to bored to be in on the routine.

    On the other hand, I have played video games since I was 4 years old and it would be AWESOME to get in shape using them. Sure, of course there are other ways for you to get in shape, and Of course there are more EFFICIENT ways to get in shape. But the main factor we are combatting is LACK OF INTEREST. People are lazy because they are out of shape, and out of shape because they are lazy. A health freak could easily go up to a 250 lbs + gamer and say: “Well instead of simulating fitness, why dont they just play real sports!?” Well, in response to your comment, Mr. “imaginary” fitness guy, Some one who is crucially over weight is not going to be excited about going out side and playing a game of baseball with all of the “in-shape” kids and looking like a fool because because he can’t keep up. We are talking about an aerobic exercise that is fun, and that can be done in the comfort of your home! Thank you nintendo, you have NEVER let us down!
