A new study out of Cornell University says coffee can make you hungrier for sweets. Researchers say coffee reduces people's perception of sweetness and that can make it harder to stop wolfing down things like cookies, cake, pie, and candy.
A positive effect of coffee was accidentally discovered during the research; it can create a placebo affect. People credit the drink for them being more alert and aware.
The study is published in the latest edition of the "Journal of Food Science."
