Does That WII Burn Calories?

If you got that WII for your youngster (or yourself) thinking that it will help him/her to burn calories, don't bet on it. According to some researchers, Playing new generation active computer games like WII uses significantly more energy than playing sedentary computer games but not as much energy as playing the sport itself. The energy used when playing active Wii Sports games was not of high enough intensity to contribute towards the recommended daily amount of exercise in children.
So get them or yourself outside and get that exercise and cool down after with that game console.
The technical report is available here at British Medical Journal.
