Mid-calorie sodas still a bad idea

It common knowledge that sugary soda drinks help add empty calories, which leads to weight gain if not careful. Now, Coca-Cola is developing a mid-calorie soda that uses a combination of natural sweeteners instead of artificial. The new formula will have 70 calories per a 12-ounce can. Granted this can help cut off some calories from a diet since a can of regular Sprite has 140 calories and Fanta has 160 calories. Yet the best recommendation to reduce calories is to omit sodas all together–even with natural sweeteners, because it is still an empty caloric soft drink. But if a soda alternative won’t do, then having the option of choosing a lower caloric value is a better choice.
