raw diet, alcoholism, eating disorder recovery
hi! i'm new to this site and am really curious about the connection to alcoholism, eating disorders, and raw foodism. i've never struggled with alcoholism per se but it's extremely prevalent in my family, as is disordered eating, including some on my own part. last year i recognized my disordered eating and tried to fix it, but only knew how through calorie restriction, which just made things worse. i tried raw and i don't know whether or not it was bad because at that point i was deep into anorexia and required outside treatment.... i'm wondering what anyone's thoughts are on the connections and if anyone has suffered from alcoholism (i'm assuming it's safe to say that many people here have struggled with food addictions). one part of me thinks that raw food is a good way out of addictive behavior, as seen by how much it helps people, but of course there is reasearch between alcoholism and carb-addiction, and most raw food diets are very high in fruit of course. any thoughts or personal experiences?
