Drunkorexia

4/11/2014

The high prevalence of eating disorders among young women today is continually growing. Anorexia and bulimia seem to be the two most common and talked about eating disorders. Both conditions are triggered by an obsessive fear of gaining weight. But with all the new diet trends today, girls are finding new ways to lose weight in an unhealthy manner other than anorexia and bulimia. So, have you heard of drunkorexia? This is a new phenomenon to me. Drunkorexia is not a medical term, but a slang expression used to describe another eating disorder. Drunkorexia happens when a person has the habit of restricting food calories to make room for alcoholic drink calories. Studies have shown that approximately 30% of women between the ages of 18-23 diet just so they can drink. 

Drunkorexia is most prevalent in college women (and sometimes college men as well) and stems from the fear of gaining weight from drinking alcoholic beverages. Sure, you can drink a Skinny Girl margarita, but it is no lie that alcohol is high in calories. Often times, this slips peoples minds when they’re enjoying a drink or two with their friends. Here is an approximation of the amount of calories in “basic” alcohol:

1 beer= 154 calories (regular) 103 calories (light) 1 shot of 80-proof gin, rum, vodka, whiskey, tequila= 97 calories 1 glass of red wine= 125 calories 1 glass of white wine= 121 calories

Campus Celeb: Devon Calhoun

2/26/2014

Devon Calhoun is a Sophomore and is the president of Bucknell's oldest co-ed acapella group, Two Past Midnight. We asked Devon about her role as president to find out more about what it is like managing such a talented group. As they are preparing for their spring concert, Devon has a lot going on! 

When did your love of singing begin?

Honestly, I can’t remember the age, but it seems like forever. You could say it began with a rendition of Brittany Spears’s – “Stronger” with my neighborhood buds, or recording myself singing “All I want for Christmas is You” on our family desktop computer.
 

How did you become involved with Two Past Midnight?

When I got to Bucknell I knew I wanted to be in an acapella group, so at the activities fair I signed up for just about every audition. Then Two Past offered me a spot- ask my freshman hall- it was a very exciting day!

How is this group different from other organizations on campus?

Two Past Midnight is a family. All throughout high school I played sports and had a team outside of school that I could call my family. At Bucknell, I was afraid I wouldn’t find that, but then Two Past came along. We all love each other and are there for each other through thick and thin. Even though our late night practices can seem like the worst thing after a day of studying, its always exactly what I need to let some steam off. It’s probably my favorite part of Bucknell.
