GENCON is the biggest four days of gaming in the world. Gamers come from everywhere to attend. This year’s attendance tops close to 30,000 pre-registered, with numbers in attendance coming in at 49,000, and expected to top off at 52,000 in attendance.
It also brings some of the world’s most brilliant minds together that create this year’s gaming Christmas present. What is wonderful is the number of people of all types attending GENCON. But one will notice one big common denominator with a large percentage of the attendees is their BMI (Body Mass Index) number. It is very high. Why?
While many of the gamers with large BMIs in attendance are walking and GENCON is a lot of walking, many have no trouble covering the distance. Many are not even breaking into a sweat, breathing hard, or even red faced. Why is that? If a BMI is in the high range with all the walking not dropping the weight, what is the problem? It is not like these folks are not dedicated or smart. It is not like they are not exercising. What else is the problem?
Carbohydrates or carbs. While many of these wonderful folks are walking miles to get from one area to another, exercising at their own homes, they are still retaining large BMIs. Their diets are the problem. Many, while exercising, are still seeing their weight not moving off the scale. Their diets are the reason for this. Many gamers love the carb foods. The carb foods are loving them back long time. Many gamers are known for eating pizza, breads, carbonated beverages of all types, and very little real food such as fruits and vegetables. Why? Because carbs and caffeine give the staying power to game for hours and hours. Gaming is what many excel at doing. Imaginations do not worry about BMIs. They worry about making it to the next level.
What can a gamer do? Total up the carbs for the day. Cut them in half to become half the size. Continue enjoying the con and keep up all the walking. After all, GENCON is the biggest four days of gaming and a great place to get exercise.
