How can drinking less soda help with weight loss?

Keri Gans
Nutrition & Dietetics
If you drink sweetened soda, be brave and give it up—you will find it much easier to cut calories and lose weight. You need to consume 500 calories less per day to lose one pound a week (again, 3,500 calories = one pound).
