    If you're trying to lose or maintain weight, or even if you just want to be healthy, what you drink matters. Occasional sugary drinks are fine for most people, but drinking a lot of sodas, high-fat coffee drinks, sugary fruit juices, whole milk, and sweet tea can really sabotage your diet. Luckily, most drinks come in low-sugar or non-fat options that are much better for you. Water, of course, should be your main drink every day. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how drinks affect your weight, how to find healthier versions of your favorite drinks, and much more.
