Does Thinking Hard Burn More Calories?

Video taken from the channel: SciShow


Yes, according to a study by the Mayo Clinic. After calculating caloric burn for 36 different active pursuits, it found that a 160-pound person can burn up to 861 calories by running 8 mph for one hour. But guess what else made the list?

Jumping rope, racquetball and even bowling are good enough to torch some calories. Calories Burned from Bowling (per minute) = (3.9 x 81.65 x 3.5) ÷ 200 = 5.57. Calories Burned from Bowling (for 60 minutes) = 5.57 x 60 = 334. Sources and External Resources. Ainsworth BE, Haskell WL, Herrmann SD, Meckes N, Bassett Jr DR, Tudor-Locke C, Greer JL, Vezina J, Whitt-Glover MC, Leon AS.

You can burn 105-285 calories in 30 minutes of bowling. It depends on how much you weigh. Below is a general estimate of how many calories you can burn bowling for 30 minutes.

If you weigh 150 lbs, you can burn approximately 105 calories in 30 minutes. If you weigh 200 lbs, you can burn approximately 145 calories in 30 minutes. Yes, it burns calories, and will no doubt strengthen your arm and hand.But for the most part, bowling is a social sport,like billiards and darts, and not one of the big “calorie burners.” It will. You’ll burn about 415 calories per hour at a regular walking pace (usually about four miles per hour) — that’s 57 more than you’d burn on a.

2 cups (280 grams) frozen blueberries; 1/3 cup (76 grams) nonfat Greek yogurt (or any plain yogurt) 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or any sweetener) 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice. Find out how many calories you burn for Bowling. The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on the exercise you do, your weight, and the time spent doing the exercise. Use the calories burned calculator below to see how many calories you burned.

According to Jill Koegel, RD, a sports-certified registered dietitian, sitting on one of those big sports balls during your workday can burn up to an extra 100 calories a day. If you work 300 days in a year, that could add up to an extra 30,000 calories—or about 8.5 pounds! 12. Continued 8. Fidget.

Any type of movement requires energy, and fidgeting definitely qualifies as movement. “Older studies suggest additional calories can be burned. Bowling, along with the next two items on this list, ballroom dancing and Tai Chi, burns 273 calories per active hour. 32.

Ballroom dancing | 273 calories/hour 32.

  • see but how bout work. my job takes constant thinking and math non stop. like you have to got to focus. im just mostly curious because it seems like i can never eat enough to keep up lol.

    going so far as eating high calorie food on purpose, cakes high carbs and anything thats not low calorie lol

  • I wonder how many calories were burned thinking about making this video, and how many calories I burned thinking up this question, and how many calories I burned thinking up that question, and [etc]

  • Its not mindless to press a button nonstop, you have to use your brain for that and your hands and muscles and finger and bones just for one button let alone multiple times, just say it’s more simplistic

  • Thinking is an optimized task that the brain is likely doing when you’re not even aware it’s doing it. I’m wondering how many more calories it takes when the brain is working exceedingly hard to increase its abilities, such as when training to restore basic human functionality after a stroke. I would say that that’s more likely to have a greatly increased calorie burn rate than just thinking.

  • I think you burnd more calories nowdays the human brain is the most complex organ on Earth and what is more anybody knows how really works.

  • Plot Twist: This video is f**** bullsh*t

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/22/chess-grandmasters-lose-weight-burn-calories-during-games.html

  • It is 1/5 calorie/minute when at rest and 1.5 calories/minute at most. Its 7.5 times!! That’s 650% increase, how come that is not significant??

  • Here’s proof that statistics can say what you want them to.

    Postulate: Your brain uses 1/5 Calorie per minute at rest.
    Postulate: Your brain can use up to 1.5 Calories per minute when thinking heavily.
    Conclusion: Your brain only uses about 1.3 more Calories through heavy thinking.
    Alternative conclusion: Your brain uses up to 7.5 times more Calories per minute through heavy thinking.

  • I’m dangling around goal weight (but not goal composition need to build some muscle to replace the fat) and have lost about 20% of my starting weight by eating calories back. That said, I’d almost never eat all of them. So, say myfitnesspal thinks I burned an extra 300 calories from exercise, I might go over by 150. This was mostly because I have pretty wild mood swings if I’m not eating enough, and I’d rather take the slow path to lose the weight than to do it quickly and have an emotional breakdown.

  • Doesn’t sound right, I feel the difference between staying calm and writing exam and watching Sherlock Holmes……. I even use detective Conan episodes as appetizer…… More research is needed….

  • Well, lets compare thinking to weight traininkg for a moment, when you do weight training, you will gain muscle mass over time wich will increase your resting metabolic rate, now the real question is: can you make your brain bigger with logic puzzels and thinking exercises and will bigger brains will burn more calories

  • Wait so gaming and thinking hard for hours on end can burn a couple hundred calories compared to at rest where it would be like 60 or 100

  • If thinking does not burn significantly more calories, why does a super busy day at work (essentially sitting all day) leave you significantly more drained?

  • You guys should make your at least $4 a month on patreon an experiment to see how many people give $5 instead. Because even though its more, people like to round to the nearest 5 but why?

  • So I think I’ve noticed this. During end of semester math exams, I’m constantly doing difficult math for 4 hours, which, if you use this data, is 360 calories, a significant amount. That’s about how much you’d burn walking for two hours. I always come away from these exams hungry, hungrier than I would have been by just doing nothing for 4 hours.

  • Food protein does not spike insulin at all! Sr bickman proved this. The only way protien spikes is when taken with sugar. You know this you need to inform everyone that this dr is wrong g about protein

  • May be you have to think twice… even high carb diet promotes fat storage and postprandially fat is the energy source…. i.e fat burner after depletion of glycogen to certain level….

  • “you don’t want to lose weight. You want to lose fat.”
    Hence the ‘overfat’ term dr. Grabrielle Lyon uses.
    It’s a subtle difference in language.. but a major difference in the actual approach to life, and diet.

  • I disagree with “Science” because when you think hard you burn more than justcaloreis in brain, whole body make changes. When I study I can eat every 3-4 hours!!! I can push very hard when I study

  • so first he said it burns 20% at rest than goes on to say thinking as hard as you can could make you burn a maximum of only 50 calories per day or something

  • I wonder if it matters WHAT you’re thinking about?? Does thinking about naked women burn more calories than thinking about math equations????

  • I didn’t get fat eating a meal out I won’t get slimmer by skipping one meal out.

    I love these videos Jordan. They really do help. Thank you

  • I’m a tournament chess player, so on match days, I spend about three to six hours on “intense thinking” and “calculations.” Assuming an average game length of 4.5 hours, and your statement of burning 1.5 kcal/min, I should burn about 400 kcal a chess game?
    I am wondering if this means that I burn those in addition to what my brain uses in a rest state, or altogether?
    Why do I feel so drained and exhausted after a game? Is that simply from calorie loss, or can my brain get “tired” as well?
    I meant these to be serious questions, not a silly comment. Thank you!

  • 0.5 Calories per minute = 35 Watts for anyone else wondering what that is in real units. Or 1.5 Cal/min = 105 W under load, so in the same ballpark as a desktop CPU.

  • probably a lot more than just neurotransmitters. From what I understand studying should also lead to more action potentials being fired which as a result should activate ATPase more to rebalance the sodium potassium gradients. I would also assume glial cells of the brain should be more active as well with a more mentally demanding task.

  • Not so much? 1.5 cals/minute is a huge amount. 1.5 x 60 = 90 cals / hour. Say you have a job where you have to think really hard for 8 hours a day: 90 x 8 = 720 cals. For someone with a diet of daily 2500 cals, that is close to 1 / 3 of your daily caloric need. Even if you burn 500 cals from thinking every day, what adds up to 3500 cals a week which is the equivalent of calories from 1lbs of fat.

  • I’ve did keto with IF as skinny to reverse insulin resistance and totally screwed myself. I have no sub fat left and I don’t know what to do. I’ve made myself more insulin resistant in theory. Wish I found this guy before

  • I personally think my brain is super un-efficient. if I have to do lots of math or problem solve something crucial I usually get really hungry later

  • To be honest, every time I hear people say it gets much harder to lose weight as you age worries me. If I struggle to lose weight in my twenties, I can’t imagine later on in life what it will be like.

  • Foodpackaging is just stupid…
    Why would they still use calories? I mean, the science community they originated from has started using Joules for Energy.

  • Hey Jordan! Been watching your channel for a while now, just want to thank you for the content. Would you be able to do a video on night-eating syndrome at all? It’s something I’ve been struggling with for a while and even though I’ve sought professional help, I didn’t get far at all as I cannot afford private healthcare and had to rely on quite generic advice. This is something that has been basically ruining my life with a mixture of insomnia, guilt and weight gain regardless my best efforts.

  • So, at 1:12 that’s why, as a type 1 diabetic, my blood sugar (Glucose) levels drop dramatically after a hard fight in World of Warcraft? So many things in my brain are happening at once and need to be done in a specific order, no matter how many times you prepare for the fight, things just happen by instinct, which can take up a lot of resources. Science is awesome!

  • John, what kind of math was that?.5 calories a minute would be 30 calories an hour, so 30 calories an hour would be 720 calories over 24 hours. I know that isn’t possible for that to be true, so people must burn a lot less than.5 calories a minute while at rest.

  • Amazing video! Should I eat every 2 hours? or wait every 3 hours??? I am taking herbalife shake twice a day for weightloss with the snacks in between and a full meal for dinner, I am going to gym 35 min cardio and weightlifting. Every meal has its protein as recommened but sometimes i am just wayy to hungry to wait 3 hours in between each meal/snack. Is it ok to eat every 2 hours or is that harmful?

  • Hi I am using herbal life since 8 months,at first 5 months I lost 10 kilo grams,but since last 3 months my loss is not working, I am not reducing weight, sometimes I feel like giving up….but looking at my weight I am still continuing herbal life…..if any advice on my diet modification to be done please reply me mam.

  • Hi, I have a question, hope you can help me out!
    If I exercise less and also eat less calories during the winter, will my metabolism decrease in the long term (say during summer when I eat and move a bit more). I am assuming my BMR won’t change? But will the calories I burn throughout the day on top of the BMR change?

  • Thank you Jordan. I have binged watched your videos. You have helped me understand things a lot better. I have been doing WW and lost weight. I don’t have much to lose. I seemed to have gained and lost the same few pounds and then saw you were mentioned from a Weight Watcher Jenn from JennsWW Journey. I used your calorie deficit and figured out how many calories I should be eating for Weight loss. I have been double tracking with WW and counting calories. I have already lost 4 pounds with your calculation. Your information has been very valuable. Thank you.

  • I’m asking for a couple favors, first that you Like/Subscribe (this helps me out) to the video and channel on YouTube. And then share in a comment what you like to do for ACTIVE Rest, I’m willing to give it a try and I’ll share my responses in a future video. I would love to workout with each of you, even if it is a virtual workout.

  • So I got a Resting metabolic assessment. It tells me my resting metabolic burn is 1,236. Then my Daily Burn is 371 calories a day without including exercise. Are you saying I should pay attention to the 1,236 calories first and only add if I need the energy?

  • Whenever I am eating at a restaurant I ask for a to go plate before I eat. Then when I am halfway done and I start to feel full I stop and put the leftover in the to go plate. I then eat that for breakfast the next day. It is a good strategy to have.

  • I’ve been watching through a lot of your videos and I love how real you are and that you can be silly and bring humor but still have great information!

  • i’d be curious to see the difference between simply working out a math problem and someone trying to make a shot at a long range, or test it over the course of a day. i bet someone having to process a bunch of information and variables while trying to make a 1000 yard shot is going to burn more calories than someone sitting with a pencil and calculator trying to work out a math problem…

  • question, would you suggest that if a person wants to track and yet tracking every single thing can be obsessive, tracking protein, is that just a basic way to track in order to adequately know that one is getting enough protein>? your thoughts please.

  • What if I’m on a diet and I already can eat 200 calories until I reach my max caloric number so I burn calories on treadmill to give a little extra room

  • The difference isn’t even as marginal as Hank makes it out to be. However, it’s much more likely that the increase in calory usage is due to an increased muscle tone which is observed when people think hard, rather than the extra thinking itself.

  • Thank you so much! I always LOVE the information you put out. I have tried following many fitness channels and they either make the topics unclear or just wrong and not backed by science.
    #sortinghatsquad

  • MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIE!!!!! Jk This video has been very eye opening for me. My fitness pal usually tells me I have 1500 calories left after a workout and I honest can’t and don’t want to eat that much more after a workout.

  • I am a 400 pound person and my TDEE states that I should be eating 3400 calories a day for maintenance, so I have been eating 2400 calories per day and I am only losing.5 1lb per week why?

  • #kenziefan Thanks again Mr J. Another great video the q&a format works wonders. I’m struggling to lose fat in my 50s but not hiding behind that notion that it’s impossible. It’s not. Maybe it’s just ‘harder’ and a lot of bad habits have been around for a lot longer! #notgivingup

  • I lost 150 lbs by using a calorie deficit…. I stopped giving a shit and gained 130 back….. watching your videos gives me so much encouragement because even though I know everything you say to be truth…. it’s awesome to hear you be so passionate about this information. It gets me pumped to get back to what needs to happen.

  • How can you say calories are calories and as long as you’re in a deficit you’ll lose fat? If you are mostly sugar it would store as fat and you would gain more weight despite being in a deficit because of how the body processes it.

  • I really like how Jordan said health and fat loss are not equal. we can use multiple ways to lose fat but it not might be sustainable but ruins our health. I have tried keto diet two years ago for a year and yea i do lose fat for the first six months, however, i didn’t realised it was slowly ruining my physical and MENTAL health. I end up have eating disorder such as binge eating because i restricted myself from eating carbs, then after binge eating i will just blame myself. Then I started to ask myself whether i really wanted to lose fat but sacrifice my health.
    After that, i literally just FORCED myself to have balanced diet and proper meal + regular exercise, I feel a lot better in both my body and mind, i feel stronger than ever. I REALLY HOPE PEOPLE WILL START REALISING THAT LOSE FAT =/= HEALTHY, HEALTHY=/=LOSE FAT!!
    Now, for me, HEALTHY IS SLEEP MORE, EAT WELL, EXERCISE REGULARLY. ENJOY YOUR LIFE AND PEOPLE AROUND YOU. 
    Thanks JORDAN! #Sortinghatsquad

    Need to mention that this post is not targeted anyone who is using ketodiet right now. It might suits and works to you but it aint for me because in my case I was over-restricting/suppressing myself for a long period of time which isn’t healthy for me.

  • That explains why the dumbest bastard I know is scrawny everything he does is a difficult, exhaustive, calorie-burning endeavor. Dude probably burns 30 calories trying to open a refrigerator and another 20 sounding out the names of random items inside it.

  • So I’ve done it ALL! Lol…but they way you’re explaining things makes sense to me. I’ve been trying to lose fat for as long as I can remember and tried all the fads. Tomorrow I’m starting your 90 day challenge. I’m not going to worry about macros as much focusing mainly on calories and protein! Thanks for the great info! #sortinghatsquad

  • Hello! Great content! Quick question on the eating back calories topic. So, my BMR is around 2000 kCal, and based off of that my calorie budget to drop a few pounds is now 1500 kCal. That number leaves me in a caloric deficit. If I burned 200 kCal during a cardio session after my weight training session, would it in theory still be safe to consume the calories I burned from cardio? Cuz I’m still in a deficit, right? Let me know what ya think! Thanks!

  • I’m always doing a lot of calculations at my work and by the time lunch rolls around, my stomach is growling. I guess that’s why I get the munchies afterwards…

  • Sadly due to schedule I’m to late for the #sortinghatsquad, but I still wanted to thank you for this. Love the new character of Darryl and hope to see him again. And also want to comment that the outtakes are amazing. Please continue to share them.

  • This guys is providing some really honest and valuable information kids, so listen up to what’s he saying. Keep up the great work sir. Really enjoyed your inspirational advice!

  • Found this video after I ate 3200 cals yesterday… my goal is 1600 a day, so just a little bit over haha This was super helpful!!!

  • I always watch the entire video bc at the end you drop these valuable nuggets of knowledge, encouragement and support that keep me motivated to continue my journey towards being the healthiest person I can be— for myself, my three kids, and my future grandkids! I truly love everything you make!!
