(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - For all you coffee lovers, here's some good news.

A new study actually shows that drinking coffee before you work out can help you loss more weight.

The Spanish study, published in the "International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism" found that trained athletes who took in caffeine before working out burned about 15-percent more calories for three hours afterwards.

To do so effectively you would need to take in about 4.5 milligrams of caffeine per kilogram of body weight.

So for example, a 150-pound person would need to drink about 12-ounces of brewed coffee.
