Between 1977-78 and 1999-2001, "Overall, energy intake from sweetened beverages [including a 38% reduction in calories from milk resulted in]... a 278 total calorie increase," according to a paper by researcher at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
“These trends were associated with increased proportions of Americans consuming larger portions, more servings per day of sweetened beverage, and reductions in these same measures for milk,” they note.
