PTI : Melbourne: Coffee could help one live longer and lose weight, claimed a
new study. Scientists at Griffith University are currently studying, if drinking
coffee helps people lose weight by suppressing their appetite, reported AAP news
The results of early trials will come as good news to coffee addicts who are
also looking to shed weight. Participants were given either normal coffee,
decaffeinated coffee, or a caffeine tablet with breakfast and their appetites
were monitored until lunch.
"So far, we're seeing a decrease in hunger and an increase in fullness in the
caffeinated coffee condition, a trend we're not observing with decaffeinated
coffee or caffeine alone," Griffith University doctoral student Matt Schubert
said in a statement.
"This may be important for weight control, as any decrease in appetite could
help reduce food intake. Coffee has already been shown to reduce the risk of
diabetes, stroke, some cancers, mental illness and overall mortality," he said.
