If you are trying to cut calories to avoid gaining fall and winter weight, remember America’s beverage companies offer a wide variety of low- or no-calorie products which provide sweetness and refreshment while reducing sugar and calories. These products can be successful for both weight loss and weight maintenance.

In fact, The CHOICE study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, confirms that low- or no-calorie beverages can be an important tool in helping reduce calories. Additionally, a 2016 study published in the journal Obesity showed that participants who drank low- or no- calorie beverages versus water alone not only lost weight and kept it off, but reported feeling less hungry.
