I recently came across an article in the New York Times magazine that talked about the sciencey details about why we burn extra calories. So I thought I would talk about examples that would clear up any confusion about the science.
That article from the New York Times can be found here.

There is a broader article in the journal Science that the NYT article was based on. You can read more detailed articles noted at the end if you subscribe to the journal Science.
