Drunkorexic. Are you one of them?


Introducing drunkorexia… the latest diet craze which involves starving all day to compensate for calories in alcohol consumed later on.

According to this report, drunkorexia is a ‘hip’ new trend, affecting (mostly) college-going women who display an obsession with being skinny.

So what are the symptoms?

Self-imposed starvation or bingeing and purging, combined with alcohol abuse.

Apparently drinking makes sufferers ‘forget’ about food and their need to eat, which helps keep their weight in check.


VOTE: Would you ever replace food for booze?
