It depends on what you restrict "gaming" to be. If anything that is a game is allowed, I would use "Twister" as an example. Or Frisbee =p
When performed correctly, you can actually lose some weight by playing those.
If you only mean videogames, however, then I would say that you can lose weight with them but not enough to compensate the weight can gain in the whole process of spending your day with videogames. It all depends on the activities you do while gaming. If you're just sitting in front of the TV and stuff yourself with snacks, you'll probably gain more weight due to the snacks than you lose by moving your fingers =p
It's hard to reduce that biochemical process to only one factor

      It depends on the game.. What kind of game are you referring at? maybe on nintendo wii..

      Mar 12, 2010 5:20 pm
      No, because you have more urge to snack while you're gaming, thus more weight will added to your bodyfat

      If you go CRAZY, maybe yes.

      You can lose weight from not eating due to lack of time management

        lol True, It's so much more convenient to just grab a bag of chips and eat that than to cook something when you want to lvl up or beat the boss.
