The Tetris Diet: Play Games To Lose Weight

A new study finds playing Tetris can help you shed pounds

Want to lose weight? Well, perhaps you should pull out your phone and get a game of Tetris going. Hard to believe, but Tetris, the game where you attempt to fit different shapes together, may actually help you lose weight, quit smoking or drink less.

A study done at Plymouth University in the UK evaluated 119 people for their cravings and their hunger levels, then asked them to either play Tetris or stare at a screen loading the game. The participants who played the game reported that their cravings decreased by 25 percent.

The probable reason? They were temporarily distracted by trying to fit L-shaped thingies next to square-shaped thingies. In any case, it's making us look at our favorite subway past-time in a whole new way. [The Atlantic]
