No. Most sodas and diet sodas contain caffeine which is a diurectic and takes fluid out of the body rather than replacing it. There is no substitute for water, even sports drinks such as Gatorade do not adequately hydrate the body over a long period of time, because of the sugar content.

Why should you drink water over sports drinks?

Here's the break down of when to drink water and when to drink sports drinks: You should drink water when you are exercising for less than an hour. Your body needs hydration to replace the sweat loss, and water is the best thing for you. Sports drinks (like Gatorade, Propel, Powerade, etc.) should be drunken when exercising for more than an hour. At that point, your body needs the carbohydrates and electrolytes that most sports drinks contain in order to continue working at a high level. Overall: Drink Sports Drinks more often than water, but you should drink water along with Sports Drinks because Water keeps you hydrated, and Sports Drinks give you what's necessary to keep exercising.
