Sitting and barely moving can cause obesity?!?! No way! </sarcasm> These were actual scientists right?

I get that the article's main point is "they eat more" rather than "they're fatter". But really, you sit there all day and do nothing. Eating normally, you're gonna gain weight. Then you're fat. Fat people seem to eat more. I'm seeing a little cause and effect here.

I'm on the computer in almost all of my free time and I'm like 5'11' and 135lbs. I know I may be the exception rather than the rule, but most of my friends are similar if not more muscular builds and they're on the computer almost as much as me.

Now that I really think of it, I don't know anyone who's a fat gamer..... All the fat kids I know are just lazy and watch tv/eat/hang out on dike a lot. (Dike is a parking lot people just sit around at).

Sorry I should have been more clear. Basically when I post on these forums it's easier to make generalisations than to go into detail because (whilst this is extremely rude) 80% of the people on the news section are stupid.

Chicken isn't the only good meat but it is a good one. I'm not going to pretend I'm some food expert, but from what I understand chicken is high in protein and fairly low in fat, like most white meats. Red meats tend to be more high in fat and less in protein. This is still, of course, a generalisation. This is what I understand from my limited food knowledge and so far it's served me well.

Correct, Chicken is higher in protein but doesn't have much if any in the way of carbs and fat (talking about skinless here). You're also right about red meat usually containing a decent amount of fat, depending on the cut. Aside from being maybe a little higher in calories I don't know why people would ever want to shy away from it.

Bottom line: this study is idiotic, if you don't want to be fat or super skinny, eat a well balanced diet (usually a 40:40:20 P:C:F ratio) and don't overeat if you want to lost wait. Eat more if you're skinny, maybe hit the gym, that sort of thing, you can't gain muscle without gaining some fat (after a certain point).

You can kinda lose weight and not workout with a semi negative carb diet. That's still eating a balanced diet in a way, it's like starving without actually starving. =P

I know, I lower my carb intake during weeks I'm unable to make it to the gym, and those carb up days are amazing. There are other ways to lose weight, but if you cut back in the wrong proportions then usually it ends up with muscle loss, or gaining the fat back once you increase them again.

Yeah, true true. I drink excess milk, not really because I want to lose weight but it's my favorite beverage (chocolate milk is even better than beer GASP!). Its just one of those foods that does that and I know it helps. It really is more complicated than just watching your in take. It's good to know what foods do stuff like this though, you can snack on them all the time.

I actually don't eat at all if I'm on a game.

And of course it's associated. Instead of actually going outside and playing sports, riding a bike... kids are sitting by their TV and PC all day.

I eat sometimes when I game, it is a bad habit honestly. But most of the time, if i'm really involved in a game, i'll just drink water while I play, if it is a game like css or tf2, i'm more likely to grab a snack if i'm hungry.
