One of the few shows I actually watch.

that promo shot...
looks like he is going to eat the mic and someone trying to stop him by quickly reaching in.

this show and diners, drive-ins and dives are both to mouth watering to watch.

i hate the way they make it look like you can just hop in the car and go check these places out.

I will say though, they did a piece on a place in Sac called Dad's Kitchen. The hot blonde (name of sandwich) wasn't bad but wow the prices...that's the part they dont tell you about on TV.

The Irony of this interview is hilarious. It's like Gabourey Sidibe giving The Rock fitness tips.

gamers want to game. if they wanted to stay fit they would go to the gym -_-
Good for health bad for gaming..

Walking to the store or 15 mins on a treadmill will have the same effect. Don't need kinect, a Wii fit board or Move to get exercise.

By getting up and changing disc?
BabyTownFrolics  +   554d ago
i take my health seriously and sometimes playing kinect with friends and kids is a fun way to lose some calories. same goes with move, never owned a wii. some folks on this site have a view of gaming thats way too narrow. then there are folks like devilhunterx who are just very unhappy on the inside.

Oh god not this argument again, parents, just be parents and tell your kids to put the game down and go play outside, simple as that. Games are not for exercise, and exercise is not for the living room, people get hurt, and shit gets broken. Just get them the fuck outside
LOGICWINS  +   554d ago
Exercise isn't for the living room? Clearly uve never done INsanity or P90X.
isarai  +   554d ago
I'm talking about kids, trust me you don't want them trying to exercise in your living room

Why do you assume that the only people utilizing Kinect are children?
aiBreeze  +   554d ago
I've played/tried some of the fitness games for Kinect and despite the dodgy recognition, I'd definitely say it can give you a really good workout. Still, staying fit/healthy lifestyle starts in the kitchen, stuff like Kinect isn't going to turn a lazy slob into a fitness fanatic.

I'd be all over a more accurate Kinect. First time I played UFC Trainer I had tons of fun, but the more I played the more I discovered its flaws. Trainers have repetitive dialouge and the camera often mistracks movements. Took me out of the experience.

If I wanted to get/stay fit I'd go to the gym and do real exercises.

This man is the last person that should be giving out health tips.

Awesome show, awesome guy!

People are severely uneducated about being in shape.

These buzz words like "fit" thrown around do nothing to help anyone.

This is incredibly ironic in that the amount you eat in terms of calories is the real factor.

If you are on a caloric surpluss, more than what your body needs you will put on fat weight and if you are lifting weights you will put on muscle as well.

Realistically the only thing people have to do to loose weight is simply eat less. Its amazing isnt it that it is that simple? no cutting out carbs or any fad diets just eat LESS.

If you are eating so called "unhealthy" food just eat less of it, I guided my friend through it by simply saying wat what you want but dont intake to much.

He has lost 2 stone.

Simple thermo Dynamics.
