Default Re: Research Question of the Week: A Comprehensive Discussion on Diet Induced Thermogenesis

Thank you for the replies.
How do you go about measuring something like this?

Do you take temperature readings during and after? Or is there another way to get this information.

Also, I know it's negligible, but what about the energy it takes to bring cold food to body temp? Is there a way to rule this out, since it's not really diet induced? I realizing consuming food at or above body temp wouldn't affect anything. It might not be enough to worrie about, but I know a few calories (little c) would be burned, and this would add up over time.


BTW I really like this subject, fascinating really!!

gah, I had to edit this twice to get rid of mistakes...I suspect there are more lurking.
