Volumes are significantly increased only immediately after the consumption of a beverage containing carbon dioxide in both groups subsequently administered solid and liquid meals. At maximum satiety, the volumes are similar in all groups. B-CO2: beverage without carbon dioxide; B+CO2: beverage with carbon dioxide. * p < 0.05 vs water and B-CO2.
