Primary Outcome Measures:
  • This investigation is an equivalency trial to determine whether weight loss differs between subjects consuming beverages containing no calorie sweeteners as compared to water drinkers at 12 weeks. [ Time Frame: Data will be measured at 12 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • This investigation is an equivalency trial to determine whether weight lost and maintained during the 1 year study differs between subjects consuming beverages containing no calorie sweeteners as compared to water drinkers. [ Time Frame: Data will be collected at end of study. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: September 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
