The Real-Life Diet of the Dude Who Got Into Shape Catching All the Pokémon

Posted by on Sep 7, 2016



Pokémon Go may be a fad, but it doesn’t mean that a fad can’t have long lasting positive effects on people.  We’ve all heard stories of personal connections being made by playing the game, but here’s a new one:  someone who lost and kept off the weight, partly due to the game.  Here’s a capsule of how it happened:

Nick Johnson, 28, lives in Brooklyn. He caught all 145 Pokémon currently available only three weeks after the game launched, and he did it by walking everywhere. By making tweaks to his daily routine and walking to and from work instead of taking public transit, he logged an average of eight miles a day and after a few weeks, lost 15 pounds.
