I hope you can confirm or elaborate on burnt food (like toast).  For example, 
does consuming burnt toast lower the calorie intake of the food.  I know that 
calories are measured by the heat released by the combustion of the food, but 
does burnt or partially burnt foods have lower calories than otherwise?  If 
so, could charred grilled meat have lower calories than rare-cooked meat?
