Caffeine & Weight Loss

Here's me thinking all this extra coffee might increase my metabolism! Bugger! Oh well, it won't stop me indulging in my morning espresso.

From Sugar - Aspartame and Saccharin - Symptoms & Awareness: "CAFFEINE AND WEIGHT LOSS"
Caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, and soda, is a stimulant. It stimulates the adrenal glands to produce epinephrine.
Epinephrine, in turn, stimulates the pancreas to secrete insulin, thus lowering the blood sugar level.
This, in turn, over stimulates the pancreas & the elevated insulin levels will not maximize fat burning, because insulin inhibits the release and utilization of stored body fat.
The nicotine found in tobacco stimulates epinephrine production in a similar manner."
