According to the latest study published in the journal sports Medicine reveals that people who struggle to stick to their fitness regime may find motivation after a cup of coffee. This interesting study says that caffeine can help people stay committed to their fitness plans. The researchers pointed out that by having a cup of coffee, the person can reduce perception of effort required for exercise that could help them to their fitness plans. "Perception of effort is one of the main reasons why people find it difficult to stick to their fitness plans," said professor Samuele Marcora, director of Research at University of Kent in the United Kingdom. Marcora also said that it is the perceived exertion which is the leading cause why people choose to be sedentary for their leisure activities, reported Tribune

Other barriers included lack of time and the physical exertion which prevents people from exercising, explained the researchers. Compared to no activity at all, even something like walking seems like a considerable effort, said the researchers. Marcora said that use of caffeine or any other psychoactive drug can help reduce this perceived exertion during exercise and will be able to make better healthier choices more easily, according to The Times of India

He also said that while there is no restriction in use of psychoactive drugs to help quit nicotine addiction, aka smoking, or treat obesity by acting as appetite suppressants, the damaging opinion of doping in sports may inhibit the use of these stimulants to treat inactivity, which is responsible for twice the number deaths than caused by obesity, as reported by NDTV Food
