See previous answer: It could be a healthy choice depending on what your other choices might be. Drinking beer? Much better. Drinking water? Not so much. Drinking sugar sweetened soda? Way too many calories in 2 liters of soda. I would consider this amount of soda, juice, coffee or milk excessive. Moderation in all things.
