Burn Calories Without Exercising? Yes Please!

What if we told you that you could burn an average of 90 calories an hour just by sitting in your chair? Too good to be true you may say, but according to research by mental agility experts, applying your mind to puzzles and quizzes will do just that!!
Tim Forrester, from brain training website, said giving the brain a workout burns calories in the same way that giving the body a workout does. "Our brains require 0.1 calories every minute simply to survive,'" he told The Telegraph. 'When we do something challenging such as a puzzle or a quiz we burn through 1.5 calories every minute."
 Eight-time World Memory Champion Dominic O'Brien agrees, adding that brains need exercise just as much as bodies. 'Just as you need to continually exercise your body to stay fit and healthy you also need to exercise your brain and memory to remain mentally agile,'  he said. 
We think all this news is great because we love sudoku. So does that mean we can nibble on a Kit Kat at the same time and not feel guilty? We're heading to Smith's to get our Sudoku book as you read...
