What exactly did they achieve with all this nefarious activity? The only meaningful allegation I saw in the paper is putting emphasis on physical activity. Unless they suggest that people should drink coca-cola while exercising, I don't see anything incriminating in the article.

Coca Cola is trying to say that drinking sugar is just drinking calories and that all calories are the same — energy, and weight loss just involves eating less energy -> energy balance. However, it’s likely much more complicated with various hormones like insulin being raised from drinking sugary soda.

Short acting carbs will impact insulin more then medium or slow acting carbs. All carbs raise insulin though. Any diet high on sugar is less healthy then a balanced diet but calories in = calories out is still going to be mostly accurate. The problem with people drinking high sugar sodas is that you consume tons of calories with nearly no nutritional value. You are still going to be hungry and actually hitting calorie/energy goals is going to be much more difficult.
