Drinking Low-Calorie Sweetened Beverages Common Among Weight Loss Maintainers

ATLANTA (September 5, 2014) —Drinking low- and no-calorie sweetened beverages, including diet sodas, are common among people who have maintained significant weight loss, according to a new study published in Obesity.

In the study, researchers surveyed individuals in the National Weight Control Registry in which participants have maintained a weight loss of at least 30 pounds for at least one year. A total of 434 people completed the survey, answering questions related to their average consumption of low-calorie sweetened beverages and reasons for consuming these beverages. More than half of all participants reported daily consumption of low-calorie sweetened beverages, including diet sodas and coffee and tea sweetened with low-calorie sweeteners, such as sucralose.
