I'm definitely a cardiovascular person myself and do it for 40 mins twice a day. Some of the stuff in Wii Fit still has me out of breath.

The BMI in Wii Fit is definitely inaccurate because it doesn't take muscle into account. It'll likely list muscular people as over weight or obese. As you know, muscle is heavier than fat.

BMI may not be a worthwhile health indicator anymore, at least when it comes to the chances of developing diabetes. New research indicates that subcutaneous fat helps increase insulin sensitivity. It is the visceral fat that one has to worry about.

Abdominal obesity is the most reliable marker that can be measured easily. Best thing of all would be a full body CT scan to look for 'central' obesity.

Ralinn.
Asking how the WiiFit works is not putting it down in any way,
Its just an input device ,don't get so defensive

Thats why Im on the internets asking how it works so I can know how it works for myself.
My GF loves it (IDB)

@XDanger

Don't worry I'm not having a go at you. It's the comments like above that are annoying. I guess ignorant comments are to be expected in a forum, but they're still frustrating.

Don't worry about Tyger. It's just the roids talking.
