Who says that videogames make people fat? Tanya Jessen of Seattle lost 95 pounds by playing Dance Dance Revolution.

Of course, if you'd rather cut the flab by playing Grand Theft Auto instead, you might try this invention.

Mark my words, sooner or later, some enterprising personal trainer will use an online gaming network to create a virtual fitness class.
