Those of you who've read 'Seven Weeks to Sobriety': is it possible to use the author's method and be lacto-ovo vegetarian (I eat milk products and eggs, just no animal parts)?

As someone who takes a load of supplements as it is, many of which are likely recommended in the book, I'm not concerned about that aspect. There are, however, a number of diets for people wanting to stop drinking that are meat, meat, meat, eggs, non-starchy, non-sweet vegetables, certain nuts, and pseudo-grains (e.g. buckwheat, quinoa). That's it. Seriously.

For the past eleven days, the SO and I have been on a modified version of this diet (beans, milk, cheese and yoghurt are allowed here--I'm not going to rely on nuts and eggs for all of my protein, ugh!). It has reduced my cravings a bit, and some of the negative symptoms from over-boozing have also abated to a degree, but like today, I feel pretty rubbishy--and I didn't even drink yesterday. Maybe it takes a while. Maybe it's my 'period' and the heat. :shock:

I'm not going to stop Nal (arrived yesterday), nor do I plan on quitting spirits altogether. Just want to get back to moderate consumption.

Main question: does the book insist one eat animal parts?

Thanks very much in advance! :D

All the best,

Xanthippe

There is no reason to believe that a diet such as this will cure or abate alcoholism. There are no studies, certainly no double-blind placebo-controlled studies, to show that it will work. The author, who is a quack, wants to make a profit and has simply invented a "cure" to sell to people. Quacks do this all the time and they often focus on problems (alcoholism, weight, wrinkled skin) that people are really self-conscious about so that they can sell more books and make more money.

Done121--I see your point; that's especially prevalent in the weight-loss industry, unfortunately. Not sure if you're aware of this, but, the woman who wrote the book lost her son to 'alcoholism', so it's fairly unlikely she's just cashing in.

For me, getting sorted out booze-wise is, at its heart, a matter of dedication to a plan and belief in oneself. In addition to taking Nal an hour before my first drink, I've found that a few dietary adjustments and supplements have helped. That's just me, though!

Was simply curious if a vegetarian should bother looking into the text. Maybe I'll go old-school and check out our library; apparently, it's the most frequented one in the nation! :)

Thank you for the reply. Once again, I totally see what you're driving at.

All the best,

Xanthippe
