If you’re looking for a way to mix it up that will help you reach your ideal weight, try a weight loss plan that combines playing video games with proper diet and exercise.

3-Step Easy Weight Loss Plan for Video Gamers

Like most successful weight loss plans, this strategy combines changes in your diet with an increase in physical activity. The difference is that this plan doesn’t require a gym membership and makes sure you’re having plenty of fun.


  1. Diet: Get rid of the processed foods and junk food. If it’s fried or fast (food), don’t eat it. What can you replace those french fries and cookies with? Load up on fruits and vegetables when you’re feeling hungry.
  2. Play active video games: These days, there are so many active video games out there! Spend 30-45 minutes each day playing one such as Wii Sports or EA Sports Active.
  3. Go for a walk: Add 30 minutes of other aerobic exercise 3-5 times a week. An easy way to do this is to go for a brisk walk every night after dinner. 


How will this help you lose weight? Playing active video games instead of watching TV or playing traditional video games has been shown to increase the number of calories you burn. More calories burned and fewer calories consumed is the secret to an effective weight loss plan.
