So what's to gain? Why the should this be regulated? Sugary sodas have lots of calories and no other nutritional benefit so there's a good chance that drinking too much sweet soda too often with lead to weight gain and obesity. Banning the large sizes might reduce calories (or make you a two-fisted soda drinker), but there's more to it than that. Drinking lots of soda is part of a bigger lifestyle pattern that usually includes eating too much high calorie food and not getting enough physical activity.
So tell me what do you think? Is it a bold move forward to fix the diet of New Yorkers or is it a vicious attack on liberty?
