Diet Soda Still Shown To Be Helpful in Weight-loss

Good news diet soda drinkers! Another study has shown that your choice to switch to diet soda was a smart one in the weight loss battle.

The study, conducted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, researchers randomly assigned 318 overweight adults to one of three groups: one that replaced sugary drinks with water; one that substituted with diet beverages; and one that was given weight-loss advice and could make diet changes of their choice. After six months, all three groups lost four or five pounds, on average. However, those consuming diet beverages had a greater calorie reduction and there was a decrease in calories from food intake as well.
