A recent study shows that weight gain has a direct correlation with the consumption of high-calorie, sugar-sweetened beverages. We talked to Robert Barnett, editorial director of YourTotalHealth and co-author of Volumetrics Weight Control Plan, and iVillage nutrition expert, Madelyn Fernstrom, Ph.D.,CNS, about ways you can cut back on sugar calories.
