LIQUID CALORIES

Women consume 104 more calories at a meal when given cola, orange juice or milk

Women consumed an average of 104 more calories at a meal when they were given a caloric beverage containing 156 calories to drink with the meal of either cola, orange juice or low-fat milk containing 1 percent fat than when they were given a non-caloric beverage of either a diet soda, water or no beverage according to a study by Barbara Rolls and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA.
