Drunkorexia: Another Silly Diet

Eating less or fasting all day to drink alcohol at night so that calories prohibited during the day can be unhibited during a night out.

Experts believe it is appealing for those that choose to avoid core emotional pain because people have the misconception that drinking helps numb feelings. And they think, “Why not just get the calories from alcohol?” The newly coined “drunkorexia” is becoming a new problem among both men and women, especially college-aged ‘dieters.’ There’s a common conception that when one drinks on an empty stomach, they will become drunker, quicker, too. The connection doesn’t really make any good sense and is unhealthy.
