Mental agility expert Tim Forrester has claimed that an hour spent doing puzzles like sudoku or a crossword can burn up more calories than you'd find in the average chocolate biscuit, up to 90 calories an hour.
An hour spent on crosswords and sudukos burns more calories than are contained in a chocolate chip cookie, brain trainers claim. Mental exercises such as puzzles and quizzes are said to burn an average of 90 calories every hour – more calories than are contained in a jammy dodger or a chocolate hobnob.
