Drunkorexia: Is It More Common Then You Think?

Unfortunately, it goes without saying that college campuses are often feeding grounds for abnormal and, often times, dangerous drinking patterns. However, women tend to be starting a new ‘diet’ trend that is just as, if not more, detrimental to one’s health then the average binge drinking.Cristen from, “Stuff Mom Never Told You”, shares with us what drunkorexia is and how, if continued, can lead to other compulsive disorders. Swapping food calories for alcoholic beverage calories, not eating as much to get drunk faster or simply saving your daily caloric intake for alcohol are all symptoms that something may be wrong with your relationship to food and alcohol. Being cautious and knowing the signs can help your girlfriends and you make healthy decisions while still enjoying a glass of wine.
