Researchers at Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton) studied the effect of consuming a caffeine-enhanced sports drink had on active women (specifically VPX’s Redline Princess ready-to-drink formula). They reported at the 2009 International Society of Sports Nutrition Conference in New Orleans that subjects who consumed 240 milliliters of Redline after fasting experienced a greater resting energy expediture (calories burned at rest) for up to three hours afterward than their placebo-taking counterparts. How can you put this study to work for you? If you want to lose extra pounds, consider drinking caffeine first thing in the morning. Your a.m. pickup could keep you burning calories all morning.
