Well the way some people cook food, you can. If you see smoke coming out of the oven, you've burned a lot of calories
In fairness though you're probably on solid ground with your response, though I've never really gone in-depth, regards trying to understand the science behind such things.
Yeah, i feel like I'm taking this off of where we should be going with this...
But to my understanding, a calorie is more a concept than an object. It's a way to measure something. When a food item has "100 calories" in it, that means it has enough fuel in it to raise 1 gram of H2O 100 degrees Celsius. Or so I understand.
So you can't burn calories. Now just watch someone come in here and completely prove me wrong. That's what I get for applying high school chemistry.
