I do not dispute your statement. It is a true one. However, some of us cannot consume sodas that contain sugar. If a diabetic chooses to drink a carbonated soda pop, diet ones are the only option.

Of course, if you take your sugary Gatorade to the court when you go to play tennis to "lose weight" there's a pretty good chance you'll negate calories burned before you've left the court!
So true! Shows us the power of Madison Avenue.
