2 Your Health: Caffeine and Exercise; NY Legalizes Medical Marijuana

A new study shows drinking coffee before exercising could help you lose weight.

Researchers found athletes who took caffeine before working out burned 15 percent more calories for about three hours after exercising.

The study was published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism.
