    Yeah! What if our normal everyday thinking burned up lets say 20 percent of our total calories, WOW! just imagine how thinking really hard like doing doing math homework, or trying to figure out who really killed JFK?Those pounds would just MELT AWAY! Right?

    Nah! It don't work like that bro.

    Actually studying (e.g., sitting at your desk reading a textbook) does not consume calories. You are doing no work when sitting still.

    What consumes calories is your basal metabolism. You are burning calories just by the process of living. Your heart pumping uses a few calories, breathing uses a few more, and so on. But reading burns nothing measurable.

    So study as hard as you can, your muscles are safe from being used up.

    Your logic is flawed. Your body uses glucose for energy first, then fat, then muscle. Unless you are already starving and not eating anything, studying is not consuming your muscles.
