I've never been a big T.V. watcher but for the past six months my T.V. has been in storage while I'm renovating my house. I just decided I wanted to try living without it for a while.
When I put my T.V. in storage, I was 6'1, 206. Not exactly fat by any means but I had a bit of extra padding around my waist; mostly love handles. Six months later without the T.V......6'1, 192. The only other thing I've done differently is I'm eating much poorer quality food now because the kitchen in this apartment is so small I end up eating out almost every meal. That should have made my weight go up instead of down!
What I've found is that even though I rarely looked at my T.V., it provided a soothing white noise which was like having company over, so it lulled me into sitting at home more often. Now, the quiet drives me crazy so I get up and go ride my bike somewhere or meet friends out more often.
I'm now happy walking around the house with my shirt off. Just thought I'd share this.
