How healthy can you be sitting around for 10 hour gaming sessions all the time? Not to mention if he had a desk job. Plenty of morbidly obese people out there who think of themselves of having just a few extra pounds they need to lose. I do physical work on my feet 8 plus hours a day, eat right - mostly, and work out ever other day - mostly and I'd consider myself in decent shape and still need to lose a few pounds. Most people aren't even close to that, especially marathon gamers and tv watchers.
