Study under review: The effects of coffee and caffeine on appetite, gastric emptying, and energy intake
The study participants were non-smoking, non-obese men and women between 18-45 years old. No participants were taking any medications known to influence lipid, carbohydrate, or caffeine metabolism. Their average caffeine intake was 240 mg per day, which equates to almost two and half cups of coffee. The range was quite wide, from around 20 to around 740 mg per day.
