When first released (in America) the play with a controller option didn't exist. That option was patched in later. Also I don't think the game counts burned calories the same using the controller. So it may be possible to do with the controller now, but it would probably take years to burn 17,000 calories. The Five Day Push trophy is glitched as well, and hasn't been obtainable since the game came out. I've messaged the developers and they are aware of the glitch and hopefully will fix it in the future.
