How long will drinking alcohol sustain me nutritionally?!

Question: How long will drinking alcohol sustain me nutritionally!?

I'm on a bender, but I do not want to die!. I'm just wondering how long I can survive on the calories of alcohol alone!. I'm drinking 40% ABV stuff mostly, and I've got plenty of water!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The Calories of alcohol aren't the real issue in regards to "How long will drinking sustain me!?" I mean, a big glass of vodka or gin (40% ADV) has bout 200 calories!. So, taking that as the rule, you will need about 10 glasses of Vodka to reach the 2000 calories recommended for an average adult!. However, Vodka and Gin do not have any Carbohydrates, and you need those as well!. So throw in a few beers (about 13g of carbs for a 12 oz bottle) and you will have that covered!.

There is plenty of fat in alcohol and such, so don't worry about that!. One thing to consider if you are wanting to live solely on booze during the binge is that you should have some (many) mixed drinks that have a lot of water in them as you will dehydrate quickly and alcohol will dehydrate you!.

The real issue here is all the nutrients you will be losing!. You, if you go too long, will run a risk of something called "Korsakoff's syndrome"!. It is a vitamin B deficiency that will suck huge *** if you get!. So, if you don't want to lose your memory and all the other fun things that are involved with the syndrome try to shot a few vitamins with your Vodka!.

Try making your White Russians with Slimfast or something and have bloody mary's for the tomato juice!. If you want to go on a real bender and not permanently **** your body you need to do those things!. To sum up: Keep Hydrated, Diversity your Alcohol, Keep vitamins in check and Mixed Drinks with juices and such!.

So, I wouldn't go longer than a few days, 3 or 4!. After that you may just die!. Hell, after 2 days you may die for all I know, it depends a lot on you!. I would say that you should listen to your body and if you are feeling like you are weak or sick, stop!

I have only done a bender of a good three day weekend myself!. I also did eat food during more lucid moments and I stopped when my body started rejecting the food/booze (vomiting)!. It also took A LOT of time to recover, like a full week!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

its nutritious, its a meal!. the problem is!.!.!.!. if you were on a bender, how come you can type so perfectly!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well, if your serious, I'd switch up to a good lager beer and live a while longer!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


If you don't want to die, stop drinking!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
