NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2012) - Although Americans have heard for many years that soda and sugary drinks are not beneficial to human health, the latest ban on the sale of large-sized sugar-based drinks in New York City has shown light on the issue. Despite the differing opinions of New York City residents, food manufacturers and health officials on the ban, a recent article from The New York Times reveals new findings that have linked weight gain directly to the consumption of sugary beverages. As the best-selling weight-loss supplement in the United States, Hydroxycut™ responds by noting that the latest research should be considered by those attempting to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
According to the article, "Two-thirds of all American adults and one-third of children in the United States are overweight or obese." These widening statistics have caused many health officials to reconsider the impact sugary drinks have on the overall national weight gain. One study from Boston's Children's Hospital helped strengthen the connection between sugary drink consumption and weight gain. The article explains that those researchers supplied diet drinks and bottled water to randomly assigned overweight or obese teenagers. Those with healthier drinks only gained an average of 3.5 pounds in comparison with another group of subjects who gained an average of 7.7 pounds. Similar findings were found among a VU University Amsterdam study that observed weight gain and sugary drink consumption in children.
Still, the article reports that some feel these studies are not as concrete as suggested; the American Beverages Association notes that weight gain is an accumulation of many factors, not just drink consumption. Hydroxycut™ is a proponent of weight loss programs that take on a holistic approach, such as those that involve a nutritional diet and proper exercise. However, the company supports these findings and notes that cutting out sugary drinks is a positive step towards greater weight loss.
In a recent press statement, the makers of Hydroxycut™ conclude, "Sugary drinks really hold no value in a healthy diet. While they may taste good, and many people enjoy the jolt of caffeine that they provide, they can, as the article shows, lead to weight gain. At Hydroxycut™, we encourage individuals to replace their sugary drinks with sugar-free beverages or, better yet, water. Staying hydrated is important when striving to lose weight or avoid putting on extra pounds. The body needs water to work at an optimum level, and it provides its support without sugars, calories, and other substances."
