"Your stomach lining is designed to be resistant to your stomach acid, which means it will also be resistant to every weaker acid"

I was working under the assumption that this was not the case. Sort of like how different viruses affect us differently. It's been a long time since I took chemistry and biology and your argument seems sound, so I'll defer and concede the point.

The weight loss impact is real, and I'll also note that carbonated drinks do appear to cause gas.

The moral is to not drink soft drinks and I thank you for correcting my bad assumption.
