Caffeine may offset holiday weight gain

If you’re worried about packing on pounds this holiday season, researchers suggest drinking some coffee could help.

A new study found that drinking four cups of coffee daily could reduce weight gain from a diet high in fat and sugar.

Scientists say they tracked rats and discovered those that had caffeine gained 16% less weight and accumulated 22% less fat than those who didn’t.

They tested the rats using tea, synthetic caffeine and caffeine extracted from coffee.
