Any form of exercise is helpful for better management of PCOS symptoms. And cleaning the bathroom or vacuuming the hall burns up more calories than using Wii Fit, say researchers.
Experts at Which? Computing who checked out the effectiveness of the Nintendo console found that everyday household chores were more likely to be successful in boosting fitness.
To compare the games console with daily activities, Which? Computing tested 10 minutes of housework against 10 minutes of Wii activity. While the volunteer using the Wii Fit burned just 25 calories, the person cleaning the bathroom burned 34 calories and the person vacuuming clocked up a loss of 42 calories.
And a volunteer on a treadmill burned 115 calories in 10 minutes.
The magazine says that burning calories is the key to losing weight, with every 3,500 calories burned torching a pound of fat.
