Wearing Caffeine Won't Help You Lose Weight

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

They claimed leggings, bras and other items were infused with microcapsules of caffeine. Ads said slimming results would be visible in under a month. Authorities say the only part of you that gets slimmer is the pocket with your wallet; although, on the upside, the effect there is immediate. It's MORNING EDITION.
