Effects of Drug and Alcohol Use on Weight Gain

March 8th, 2015 No comments

I got this email from Ashley Reed of, and I thought I'd pass it along:

I wanted to thank you for supporting the fight against obesity and unhealthy diet. This is a mission I have been deeply involved in as well... I wanted to offer some information about a severely underserved topic related to weight and diet.

After research across the resources available on the web, we at noticed the troubling absence of a centralized resource on the dangerous relationship between weight, alcohol and other drugs. Because of this, we engaged with researcher Dr. Karen Vieira, PhD MSM to create a comprehensive resource on the implications, contraindications and the latest research regarding substance abuse and weight.

The result is a  6,000 word research piece, the product of our shared desire to help prevent and treat harms associated with weight, diet and substance abuse. It includes easily-understood graphic elements, 27 supporting citations of landmark research and authority sources (seen at the bottom) and answers for the most common questions regarding weight, alcohol and every major drug of abuse.

We hope that the quality this page is of value to your readers. Thank you so much for your time.
