Nutritional needs when alcoholism is an issue.
People with an alcohol addiction tend to have two diet-related issues:
- They frequently have low blood sugar, because alcohol causes a drop in blood sugar.
- They tend to be undernourished because they substitute alcohol for food.
Sergey Kalitenko MD?s suggestions:
- Increase the consumption of complex carbs like beans, vegetables, whole grains and potatoes to help maintain a steady blood sugar level.
- Avoid sugar in the form of processed foods, refined sugars, fruit juices, dried fruits, and low-fiber fruits like grapes and citrus.
