if you are on top of the frying pan, i'd say you are touched by insanity. do you breath when you dine at a busy restaurant? do you think you are inhaling calories from the other diners' meals? take a step back and realize this is some sort of OCD symptom or just plain paranoia. bon appetit!

i stand in front of the oven, i don't get on top of the frying pan. i'm gonna reach out on a limb here and guess that the comminication problem is purely semantic.

as far as the topic, i've never heard of such a thing! if you were actually inhaling calories as you cook, restaurant cooks / chefs would be enormous! and would that then mean that skinny people have some secret way to breathe when they cook? it doesn't make sense to me.

I'm pretty sure you can't inhale calories. No such thing as crushing up an oreo cookie and snorting it for a quick fix.

if you actually snorted it, i think you would add some caloried to your daily intake. if you just sniffed it all day, i think you'd be safe.

If you are using a frying pan I hope you are at least using evoo instead of crisco. Just the thought of a fry pan full of fried chicken can make me gain weight I think.

I actually read somewhere once, that if you smell food that you want to eat (this was in response to baked goods - i.e. standing in front of Dunkin Donuts), your body will produce glucose in response, b/c your body wants sugar. And then you CAN actually gain weight just from smelling! But it's not inhaling the calories, it's making your body produce them.

However, even that sounds fishy to me. I mean, if your body produced it, it had to come from somewhere, right? It didn't just pop in there! So wherever it came from, that spot would then have less.
