You might burn slightly more calories in the digestion process, as your body will need to do more work to fully break it down, but the amount will be negligible. Likely the calories you would have burned by moving your jaw to chew the food would be equal to, if not greater, than the extra amount burned in the digestion process. Not chewing your food is going ...

Instead of the cereals loaded with chocolate you could opt for the Cornflakes kind of breakfast and top it with fruits which you like the most(do not mix sugar again in the milk). Go for muesli if fresh fruits are not available but make sure the muesli contain the fruit but not the added flavour and very less sugar content. This will definitely wean you ...

Log your meals/snacks Writing down what you eat makes it easy to figure out a total calorie count at the end of the day, and will also help you to gain a sense of how much you should be eating throughout the day.

Exercising after eating is safe. The other answers here are based on personal opinions. When you eat, the process of digestion is aided by the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). When you exercise your sympathetic nervous system releases adrenaline, which inhibits the peristaltis in your gut. This in terms makes the food move more slowly ...

As a general rule I try to wait 30 mins after a meal before doing any type of lifting (45-60mins before I attempt cardio) If I workout any time less than this I can feel quite sickly. Also depends what you have ate, a light sandwich is no problem, give it 15-20 mins, if your having a hefty meal you probably want close to an hour.

After meal assuming you did not drink much water after finishing meal. You should take 20mins rest. Since our digestion process starts and and doing max 10 (no reps) pull ups / chin ups after rest would be fine, since you said you don't want to go for walk.
