Diet can't really come from a video game. Doing low impact exercises is great, which some games do perfectly fine, but weight loss is calories in vs calories out. Bottom line.


so just have an interactive portion about diet and have diet tips during loading screens! :D

Yep.

Exercises only boost your own body's management of those calories. Having a higher volume of muscle will cost your body more in calories as long as your metabolism isn't 0.
Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

If a fatty needs a game about an exercise program to DO exercises in the first place, he's already doing it way wrong.


So much this haha.
I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

And exactly what would you do as those two...? Just wondering, this sounds interesting.


Do something like the Insanity workout, but on the screen it shows those characters as you......?

Workouts alone don't do much for weight loss you need to regulate your diet as well.

As for the intensity of "video game workouts" I don't think they are geared towards people that need a higher intensity workout. Those people already know how to exercise and likely have their own routines.

Then again it's hard to judge how intense a workout game is when you're just watching videos of them . Perhaps you can select the intensity.
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own.

it's a high intensity cardio workout that involves doing lots of variations of squats and jumps

I play a game called 'go run a few miles'. Try to play it a few times a week. Playing that along with a decent diet has helped me stay fit and healthy.

If you play games like Dark Souls or Bioshock and still eat chips and candy then you aren't gonna lose any weight that way.

So instead of being healthy or even fat, you went the malnourished route.

Yay!
