  Background and Objective: Over the past several decades, an increase in the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) has coincided with rising rates of obesity. This study was conducted to evaluate the association between SSBs consumption and Body Mass Index (BMI) among female university students. Materials and Methods: An online structured survey form was used to collect the data on SSBs consumption and BMI in Saudi Arabia. Results: One way ANOVA found significant differences in mean BMI across various consumption frequencies of SSBs (p<0.001). An increased risk of being obese (high BMI: 30 or more) was associated with increased total consumption and consumption frequency of SSBs (p<0.05). Conclusion: This study found that mean BMI was positively associated with SSBs consumption. These significant results indicate that consumption of SSBs increases the risk of obesity.
