You know liquid diets can help you take off pounds, but thats not the case when youre knocking back eggnog and winter ales at holiday parties and festive get-togethers. Consider this: the average partygoer guzzles nearly 4,000 calories in liquids during the holiday season, according to a Cancer Research UK poll.
