Are women who drink more caffeinated drinks engaging in more physical activity?
Caffeine is the most widely used drug in the world. Readily available from dietary sources, caffeine is most commonly ingested in beverages such as coffee, tea and cola drinks. Caffeine is a stimulant commonly used by athletes to improve exercise capacity and reduce perceived exertion. However, whether similar benefits of caffeine are also observed less physically active individuals is unclear. Indeed, research is yet to establish whether a relationship exists between coffee intake or any other caffeinated drink and physical activity levels. This project aims to investigate whether people who drink more caffeinated drinks engage in more physical activity.
