LSUHSC public health researcher finds reason for weight gain

k, 1% low-fat milk, and skim milk)
  • 100% juice (100% fruit and vegetable juice)
  • coffee and tea with sugar (sweetened with sugar)
  • coffee and tea without sugar (unsweetened or sweetened with artificial sweeteners)
  • alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, spirits, and other alcoholic drinks).

    Each participant's daily nutrient, energy, and beverage intakes were calculated by taking the average of 2 recalls per time point. Liquid calorie intake was calculated as the sum of calories from the 7 beverage categories. Solid calorie intake was calculated by subtracting liquid calories from total calories. The researchers offer a couple of possible explanations for their findings. The absence of chewing when consuming liquids may result in decreased pancreatic responses. Beverages also clear the stomach sooner than solid food and may induce weaker satiety signals in the gastrointestinal tract. "Our study supports policy recommendations and public health efforts to reduce the intake of liquid calories, particularly from sugar-sweetened beverages," concludes Dr. Chen.
