In brief: Have water, not soda

Drinking water (choose plain water or one that contains no sugared flavoring) can help with weight loss if it is substituting for other drinks that contain calories.
Drinking water before each meal can also fill up the stomach somewhat, and make a person satisfied with a smaller meal. If substituting water for non-fat milk, one would need another source for vitamin d and calcium.
