Diet and body weight: What is the effect of soft drinks and other beverages sweetened with sugar?

Drinking a small bottle of sugar-sweetened soft drink  every day for weeks at a time, can cause body weight to rise an average of a quarter of a kilogram (about half a pound). If overweight people are regularly drinking large amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages, reducing the amount they drink could contribute to losing weight.
