According to Joystiq, one of its readers, Greg, managed to lose 41lbs - nearly 3 stones - from his 274-pound frame in just three months.
Of course it was not just playing the game. Greg strapped his keyboard onto the display of his exercise bike and installed a side table to operate his mouse.
He hung his 46-inch Samsung LCD to hold his attention, using WoW from his XPS Gen 2 laptop to stop him getting bored while he biked.
Dubbing his method 'warbiking' Greg was able to do 100 hours of cardio biking which would have meant him dropping dead of boredom if he had not had his favourite game beside him.
Of course real biking never seems to have occurred to him because that would meant going outside, a place which is only a fable to most WoW players, despite having better graphics.
