Hot Flashes and Calorie Burning

Q: I am beginning to experience night sweats and hot flashes, nothing too terrible, though annoying for sure. I just wondered if, with all the heat my body is generating, there might be any calorie burn associated with the
hot flashes.

Dr. Donnica: Sorry to disappoint you, but no calorie burning benefit has been noted from hot flashes! Not only that, if you're entering menopause, your metabolism will probably slow down a bit, meaning you will need to eat fewer calories or crank up the exercise a notch to maintain the same weight.
