I would be skeptical of a study funded by the American Beverage Association that claims THEIR products help weight loss. You'd have to know the number of subjects, the controls, the diets used, and many other variables. Further the chemicals in some of the diet sodas have their own set of side effects and detrimental impact on health. On balance it's probably better to drink water than a host of chemicals.
