Could Wii nunchuks make screen time healthier?

Active video games might help people burn more calories than couch-based screen time, but those who play active games tend to undo most of the difference if there's junk food available, says a new study. (Culture, Wii)

"Those active gamers tended to eat more calories than they spent dancing, playing hockey, and drumming. They took in an average of 376 more calories than they burned, compared to about a 650-calorie surplus among the inactive groups."
Is it just my imagination or does this contradict itself?
