Do not drink regular pop.
what hogwash... Your body doesn't know what to do with high fructose corn syrup, which is what regular pop is... SUGAR WATER.

Calories make you fat - sugar pop has calories, so don't drink it.
No person can expect dramatic weight loss from simply from cutting out sugar pop - it can happen, but that shouldn't be an expectation. I agree that your husband might be maintaining now instead of gaining; or perhaps he is consuming extra calories elsewhere to make up for what the lack of calories from beverages (I doubt that you control everything that goes in his mouth).
I saw on Oprah a few months back - she had Dr. Oz on, and he said that when you consume a regular soda with a meal, you will eat more of your meal than if you drank a non-caloric beverage; it is all an effect of the high fructose corn syrup. Here's the link:

Sorry to sound to crude, but I'm not gonna beat around the bush.
