|Hypotheses/Aim(s) of Study||The aim of the study was to determine the effects of sucrose beverages consumed over 4 weeks compared with a placebo containing artiﬁcial sweeteners in obese women. All the participants were told they were being given sucrose-sweetened soft drinks, meaning that 1/2 of the participants were misinformed.,,The hypothesis was that obese women, similar to overweight and normal-weight women in previous studies, would partially compensate for the energy content of supplementary soft drinks and (1) not gain weight, (2) reduce energy intake elsewhere in the diet, (3) reduce the total fat content of the diet and (4) reduce the ad libitum CHO content of the diet (measured by the self-reported food intake in the food diaries)|
