I live in Asia and have hooked on expensive American food (it's my home country). Now I just buy manga instead and eat foods at hawkers (in Singapore) I think I've lost about....15kg.

well when i first started getting into naruto around 4 years ago i would just sit in front of my computer for hours reading about it and watching it so much that i would never eat until like 11 pm then i would eat an orange and go to bed but the weird thing is now i just eat a lot of food while watching anime and whenever i think im gaining weight i just do the hare hare yukai, lucky star, and buono dances non stop no lie lol i have issues

Like what I mean is did the anime songs or sports and fighting get you influenced to exercise or run because you got inspired by what you watched, or the anime songs made you dance alot because you liked the song and got you a few lbs off or even made you skinny?

or did it cause you to sit all the time at a computer and gain weight?

well for me it did both...

first I stopped playing and started watching anime (spent an entire summer indoors doing that) , then I gained weight (like 30 or 20 lbs) by sitting all day..

then I got influenced by the songs of anime and all the training from sports anime and lost a few lbs exercising...

Ah, anime and fitness, two of my favorite subjects in one topic, I guess you beat me to it.

I've been into health & fitness for more that 12 years, only half as long as I was into super robot anime for 24 years. And for myself, the super robot anime are the great motivators and ego boosts while I train in the gym, run on the track, work on the heavy bag, or just about anything I to be. The mental image of an invincible, titanic steel of power and strength took in a shape of a man, is just what I need to push myself harder for my ideal.

However, my fitness goal is not for me to be thin, not at all. At 31, I'm standing at 6' tall with 226lbs. of mostly bones and muscles mass. I can finish an mile under 7 minutes, with a resting heart rate of 46, and still coming up stronger every passing week!

Slam Dunk is great. Its not just your average, unrealistic BS sports anime (e.g. Prince of Tennis. Everyone from that high skool league can single-handedly beat Federer).
From Slam Dunk, I learned basic basketball schemes/strategies/techniques like pick-n-roll, team help defense and box-out. The box-out position that akagi taught to sakuragi is indeed correct and thats what you are supposed to do in order to keep your man in front of you. Its a really educational anime for those new to basketball. Except for some inaccuracies (like how at the end of the game the losing team never intentionally fouls the opponent to stop the clock and instead "play with honour") Slam Dunk gives an accurate picture of what a basketball game looks like.
I watched Slam Dunk when i was10 or something, and started playing bball (much later though) using them. I think it was a fantastic anime becuz it got me all pumped up for basketball. Now Im both a fanatic anime and bball fan thanks to Slam Dunk. those are like two things i cant live without.

I was also into bball when I was in high school not due to MJ, but Slam Dunk. Gosh I was so skinny back then, weighting in at only 178lbs. Now that I'm into boxing and now MMA, I'm afraid of hurting someone in the paint if I ever pick up bball again. My pick n' roll is either picking them up by a brick wall(me), or rolling them over by a bulldozer(that's me again). Good thing there's always the street ball for guys like me.

Wow

thats pretty amazing!!!.... well, as for me I told my story.. but listening to anime music and watching all the sports anime makes me work harder (and thanks to the music I lost 10-20 lbs dancing to it every night before bed!) I am still working towards my goal,.. and so far have just joined the track team.... (but its hard to keep up) because our track team has won state titles for so many years in a row (20 to 30 banners) with state titles on them.. so it's hard to keep up .. but anime is strangely a good motivator

I am a health fanatic as well
