Basically this tip is drink alcohol but choose better drinks. Self says to drink white wine mixed with seltzer, or a flavored vodka with club soda, to curb liquid calories. Skip colorful mixed or frozen drinks, which can rev the meter to 400 calories per cocktail or more.

However, if I am going to refrain from eating cakes or cookies ... things that I would enjoy eating....why would I drink calories? I just find alcohol a waste.

To me it's just a waste of calories that can turnout to be ... well not so forgiving if you over do it and at least with cake there is only the guilt of eating the cake.
