Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

Wii weight loss is the concept of having fun while playing video games while losing weight. Usually this Wii weight loss is accompanied by calorie restriction in addition to the moderate exercise that Wii gaming offers. Several bloggers across the web have created very popular sites detailing their Wii weight loss. Most of them have done this using the Wii Sports video game that comes free with the purchase of the Nintendo Wii system.

Wii Weight Loss with Wii Sports

Wii Sports is a set of five different sports games that utilize the Wii Remote's unique motion-sensing skills to get the player off the couch and burning calories. Many advanced users on the web report that Wii Sports is incredibly fun to play for the first couple days you have it. Some more advanced gamers are not as happy with it overall, but the allure of Wii Sports is that it is good fun for the gamer and non-gamer alike. Wii Sports has captured the hearts of wives, grandmas, mothers, kids, as well as hardcore gamers and casual gamers. For many, Wii Sports is just the first game they will play on Wii as they get used to the motion sensor controller. After they tire of Wii Sports they move on to other games. Wii Sports includes golf, tennis, and baseball games, which act as a showcase for Wii remote?s sensor functionality. Some find the game insanely addictive. The game draws every player into the experience. Wii Sports is the first Nintendo Wii title to use the Mii Channel, a customizable channel where you can create your own avatars. Wii Sports is fun to play with amongst some friends using the multi player function.

Wii Weight Loss with Wii Sports Has Critics

Some critics find it difficult to get used to the fact that in Wii Sports your character automatically runs forward to hit the ball. Others remark that the Wii remote waving around isn't a realistic experience. If following the strides of annual big name sports titles that rely on depth and realism is your thing, then Wii Sports isn't what you're looking for.

Wii Weight Loss Success with Wii Sports

Here are some quotes of people who had Wii weight loss success:

This guy lost nine pounds in six weeks enthusiastically playing his Wii.

Mickey started out at 182 pounds, and after a month and a half of Wii workouts, whittled his weight down to 172 pounds, which he found quite amazing considering that this was the first substantial loss he had attained in over two years, and he never even cut back on the Eat ?N Park cookies (or similar).
