Choose Water Over Diet Drinks For Weight Loss
Replacing diet beverages with water may lead to greater weight loss in obese women with type 2 diabetes who are following a weight-loss diet, research shows. Among 81 overweight or obese women with type 2 diabetes who usually consumed diet drinks, those who substituted water for the diet beverage after lunch five times a week for 24 weeks experienced a greater decrease in BMI (Body Mass Index) than compared to those who drank a diet beverage after lunch, as well as greater improvements in fasting plasma glucose and insulin sensitivity.
