The new console has been wildly successful, selling out at stores and winning high marks from critics and game buffs. But as players spend more time with the Wii, some are noticing that hours waving the game's controller around can add up to fairly intense exertion -- resulting in aches and pains common in more familiar forms of exercise. They're reporting aching backs, sore shoulders -- even something some have dubbed "Wii elbow."
"It's harder than playing basketball," says Kaitlin Franke, a 12-year-old from Louisville, Ky. She has been camped out in front of her family's TV, fine-tuning her bowling motion and practicing boxing footwork in two of the Wii's games. Almost immediately, she says, her right arm started to feel numb.

exhaustion could be one of the reason so many are apparently finding it simply easier than cooking every night?

I would want a Wii, except I don't have a TV (right about now I usually start getting them weird looks). Nor do I have a radio, newspapers or magazines. I do, however, have some journals.
An interesting anecdote: Leo Laporte told on a podcast (TWiT) that he used to work at McDonalds. At the end of the day everything is inventoried and then thrown away. He thought it was a waste ans so took it over to a local dog-pound, but they would let the dogs eat it. Something about proteins and no nutritional value.

On top of that the soda won't quench your thirst and will make you more thirsty. If you were to drink a glass of water you would not be thirsty anymore and would not feel sick.
