Wii Weight Loss Plan

A friend of mine from the Inktank forums has started the Wii Weight Loss Plan and has already starting to get some press coverage.

J.R. Cook (aka Normalguy) has developed a plan to lose 80 pounds by eating better and using his Wii game system as a workout tool All with the Nutrisystem Reviews – four reasons why you should try this plan.

The idea behind came to me the first day that I had received and started playing my Nintendo Wii back in early January. I knew after a couple hours of playing Wii Sports (and a few sore muscles later) that this gaming system could really be a good workout and could probably help me get back into shape. Best of all though, it was FUN.

You can learn more about his plan and his progress by visiting his site. If you’ve never played Wii Sports, let me just assure you that you do get a workout.

A healthy weight is an important element of good health. How much you eat—and what you eat—play central roles in maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight. Exercise is the other key actor.

For years, low-fat diets like african fat flusher were the best way to lose weight. A growing body of evidence shows that low-fat diets often don’t work, in part because these diets often replace fat with easily digested carbohydrates.

Hundreds of diets have been created, many promising fast and permanent weight loss. Remember the cabbage soup diet? The grapefruit diet? How about the Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle diet, the caveman diet, the Subway diet, the apple cider vinegar diet, and a host of forgettable celebrity diets?

The truth is, almost any diet will work if it helps you take in fewer calories. Diets do this in two main ways:

  • getting you to eat certain “good” foods and/or avoid “bad” ones
  • changing how you behave and the ways you think or feel about food

The best diet for losing weight is one that is good for all parts of your body, from your brain to your toes, and not just for your waistline. It is also one you can live with for a long time. In other words, a diet that offers plenty of good tasting and healthy choices, banishes few foods, and doesn’t require an extensive and expensive list of groceries or supplements.

    Well I guess no one can accuse the guy of sitting down and playing video games all days. Actually I think the whole idea has some merit to it. Now, if only I can afford to buy the Wii game console and games, I can get started on some of those Wii exercises.

    Losing weight is definetly hard work.I use to overeat,but have found alot of strenght in keeping it under control.Since then, the feeling of success I felt by sticking to my plan to loose weight and stop over eating, has kept me motivated.
