This is absolute truth. I rode through/around Clemson a couple nights ago with friends and only caught maybe 10. We walked about 2.5 miles around campus last night and caught literally dozens. Walking around is your best option, no question. I want to go walk through Falls Park in Greenville, apparently there's all sorts of good stuff there.

I'm not trolling, and I think it proves my point that people are actually trying to defend walking as a means to get kids healthy.

Walking needs to be defined. According to 'science', walking is a brisk activity and would be moderate aerobic exercise--at 3.5 mph. Strolling with your head down around the park does not count. Does it expend more calories than sitting? Yeah, but is that really the argument you want to make?

The fallacy in the thought process is what you said: the alternative is to have them doing nothing. That's not the alternative. That's what we've deemed as the option, but how about people put down their phones and actually talk?

https://www.healthychildren.org/Engl...artphones.aspx

Or maybe parents of these sedentary kids should model the behavior they expect? Why doesn't Jimmy play outside when on the weekends I sleep late and catch up on Netflix?

Or, and here's one more piece of 'science' why active video games don't work

You seem like such a health guru but you still haven't had your doctor take that stick out of your ass. Insurance not cover it or something?

I have a high deductible plan.

Listen, you guys can try to justify this video game as something it's not, which is fine, but it's still just a video game. I have no problem with that, it's the 'it's great they're exercising' stuff that kills me.

And the problem I have is at least 2-3 times per day I have to talk with parents to try to get them to understand why their kid is overweight, or why their thirteen year old needs blood pressure meds, or why I'm now screening 11 year olds for high cholesterol. We have actually changed normal lab values to reflect how obese kids are today. That's why when people try to argue that Jimmy may spend four hours playing video games per day, but he's walking now, I just see how far this thing has fallen.

Parents would rather feed their kids fast food than learn to cook healthy food at home and eat together.
I love southern foods as much as the next guy but my kid isn't eating fried chicken and corn bread every day.

I played a ton of video games as a kid but was always in good shape/health when it was time to play sports because my mom cooked dinner at home every night and made me eat vegetables.

Who?
A walk through downtown Greenville will definitely provide you all kinds of pokemons and stops (or whatever they're called). The more people playing in an area, the more likely pokemen are to pop up. There are literally hundreds of people playing in downtown every Thurs-Sunday. We'vehad pokemon bar crawls, etc. the past couple of weeks. Go over by the Peace Center on a Friday or Sat night.
