 Diet Beverages Play Positive Role in Weight Loss, Claims Landmark Study

Drinking diet beverages helps people lose weight, a groundbreaking new, multi-center, clinical study to be published in the June issue of Obesity, the journal of The Obesity Society, has confirmed.

The study, the first prospective, randomized clinical trial to directly compare the effects of water and diet beverages on weight loss within a behavioral weight loss program, was conducted simultaneously by researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and Temple University's Center for Obesity Research and Education, Philadelphia.

Study participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: those who were allowed to drink diet beverages, such as diet sodas, teas and flavored waters, and those who were in a control group that drank water only. With the exception of beverage options, both groups followed an identical diet and exercise program for the duration of the study.
