essentially meaningless unless the authors can provide a causal mechanism.

Here's one question that occurs to me:  did they control for the caffeine content of the diet sodas, or for any other diuretic properties of diet sodas?  At least some of the measured difference could be due to the diet soda drinkers having less water in their bodies because of the diuretic effects of those sodas.

As a dietary strategy I drink only "no" or "low" calorie beverages. Mostly colas, fruit drinks and coffee without sugar. Done this since 1982, and since 1994 without beer, too.

A 12 oz. can of regular cola is 150 calories, or about 1.5 miles of running or walking.

Avoiding 150 calories per day for 365 days per year is equal to nearly 16 pounds of bodyweight.

That is why I call it a dietary strategy, in this age of FatAmerica.

I do note, though, that the ABA members also sell bottled water.

:silly:


Perhaps the ultimate target is intended to be plain old tap-water - the free sort they don't get to charge anyone for?
