Have you ever skipped a meal to “save those calories” for happy hour or drinks later that night? You are not the only one to try and out smart your body. In fact, 20% of students in America suffer from ” Drunkorexia.” Undergraduate females are three times more likely to skip day-time calories and consume them by alcohol instead.
The top three reasons why students suffer from “Drunkorexia:”
- Control their Weight
- Save Money
- Get Drunk Faster
It does not take a college degree to understand that depriving the body of nutrients and fueling it on alcohol is a recipe for disaster, but skipping a meal for one night of a flat stomach will not only leave you with a hangover the next day, but long-term cognitive problems including difficulty concentrating, studying and making decisions.
