A new study shows that replacing one sugary drink a day with water can help a person lose weight and improve their health. Kiyah J. Duffey helped to write a report on the study. She says no matter how many sugar-sweetened beverages someone drinks, "replacing even just one serving can be of benefit." Duffy is a specialist on human nutrition, foods and exercise. She teaches at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg. Medical experts believe sugary drinks are partly to blame for the obesity epidemic in some areas. The drinks have also been linked to Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The U.S. government's 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans says no more than 10 percent of a person's daily calories should come from sugary drinks. Duffy says just replacing one 236-milliliter sugary drink with the same amount of water would help people reach that target. "We found that among American adults who drink one serving of sugar-sweetened beverages per day, replacing that drink with water lowered the percent of calories coming from drinks from 17 to 11," she said. "Even those who consumed more sugary drinks per day could still benefit from water replacement, dropping the amount of calories coming from beverages to less than 25 percent of their daily caloric intake she said." The report was published in the journal Nutrients. I'm Caty Weaver.

一项新研究表明，每天将所摄入的含糖饮料替换为水有助于减肥并促进健康。达菲参与了此项研究报告的撰写 。达菲表示，无论某人摄入多少种含糖饮料，“即便只替换其中一种，对人体也是有好处的” 。达菲是人体营养、饮食与锻炼方面的专家 。在美国南卡罗来纳州弗吉尼亚理工大学的农业与生命科学学院教书 。医学专家认为，含糖饮料是某些领域肥胖症的部分原因 。含糖饮料还与2型糖尿病以及心脏病有关 。
美国政府发布的2015年美国人膳食指南中指出，人体每日能量只有10%来源于含糖饮料 。而达菲表示，将236毫升的含糖饮料替换为等量的水，就能实现这一目标 。她说，“我们发现，对于每天摄入一份含糖饮料的美国成年人来说，将饮料替换为水可以将来源于含糖饮料的能量从17降为11” 。她还说，“即便某些人摄入不只一份含糖饮料，也可以从替换其中一份为水中获益，将从含糖饮料中摄取的能量降低到每日能量摄入的25%以下” 。该报告发表于Nutrients影响因子上 。感谢收听卡蒂为您播报的新闻 。
