As if waving the Wiimote around for the various games coming out of Nintendo's camp wasn't enough, IGN says a report from Bloomberg states that "Wii-based diet software" is in the works for the console.

Nintendo is developing diet-related and other forms of software for the Wii, the report said. The report noted that such titles, specifically Brain Age for the DS, have been able to target new users who aren't used to standard game controllers.

It seems Nintendo really wants to lock down that casual market with games such as this. Seeing as how the Wiimote is a standard device, this kind of thing could possibly catch on better than Sony's Eye Toy exercise titles did. Nintendo fans, in the meantime, should stock up on a healthy supply of sweatbands and water.
