Weight Loss

Researchers who examined the relationship between beverage consumption and weight loss found that liquid calorie intake had a bigger impact on weight than solid calorie intake. Among the 810 adult study participants, sugar-sweetened beverages (regular soft drinks, fruit drinks, and other beverages containing sugar) were the leading source of liquid calories, comprising 37 percent of all beverages consumed. People who cut back on sugary beverages lost the most weight over a period of 18 months. Other beverage categories included diet drinks, milk, 100-percent juice, coffee and tea with sugar.
