Cutting out sugary drinks may help you shed pounds

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you're trying to lose weight, what you drink may be more important than what you eat. 

In an 18-month study at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, they followed the diets of more than 800 people and found the group that just cut back on liquid calories had the most dramatic weight loss, when compared to the group that just cut back on solid foods. Family physician Lane Reed, M.D., says, "When they compared sugar beverages to food, if you cut your calories in drinks that have calories you lost more weight.  They found reducing one serving of a sugar drink a day will lose a pound in 6 months, without exercise or diet changes." 

Dr. Reed says cut sugary sodas and fruit juices and you'll see an immediate difference on the scale.
