Eliminating one sugar-sweetened drink per day caused a weight loss of 1.1 pounds after six months, and 1.4 pounds after a year-and-a-half according to a new study from researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland.
Reducing liquid calories caused more weight loss than reducing solid calories.
This agrees with other research showing that consuming liquid calories does not cause a person to reduce calorie intake of food by the same amount.
One of the best weight loss doctors I know, Jay Piatek, MD of Indianapolis, Indiana, tells his patients…
“No liquid calories.”
