Gaming with World of Warcraft can cause you to lose weight without having to move from your computer, a gamer has claimed. Greg shed 41 lbs. from a 274-pound frame in just 3 months — and did it playing World of Warcraft….
Greg strapped a keyboard onto the display of his stationary bike (a Schwinn 213 Recumbent) and used a side table to operate his mouse. He hung a 46-inch Samsung screen, outputting WoW from his laptop. Dubbed "Warbiking," it was the cornerstone of an overall program for the weight loss, because it kept Greg on the bike when he would normally have quit from boredom.
"I really think the Warbiking had a LOT to do with how well I did, and how much I lost. I have done over *100* hours of cardio in three months, which is wild. There is NO WAY I could have done that without Warcraft … it’s [sic] ability to suck me in and make me ignore what I’m physically doing is amazing, and made this possible." (Joystiq)
