People have been trying to create video games that help you lose weight forever, but they all have one fatal flaw: They make you stand up and move. No one wants to do that.
So this could be revolutionary: A team from University of Exeter and Cardiff University in England has created a video game that helps you lose weight while you just sit on the couch.
How is that possible? The game brainwashes you into rejecting unhealthy foods and eating good ones.
They didn’t reveal too much more about the game, but they did say you have to avoid touching things like cookies and have to grab fruits and vegetables.
The researchers found that after people played the game, they were more likely to avoid unhealthy foods in real life. The players ate 220 fewer calories per day than they did before and lost about one-and-a-half pounds a week.
Unfortunately, the game is still in its infant stages so it could be a while before we actually get to play it and achieve the impossible dream of losing weight just by sitting on the couch.
