In this video, we’re going to talk about the best foods for a recovering alcoholic. 

What health issues are a recovering alcoholic most likely dealing with?

• Liver damage 
• Inflammation
• Cirrhosis 
• Nutritional deficiencies 

The best foods for a recovering alcoholic:

1. Cruciferous vegetables 
2. Shellfish 
3. Sunflower seeds/nutritional yeast 
4. Fish—omega 3 fatty acids
5. Large salads 

A recovering alcoholic should also try doing intermittent fasting (1-2 meals a day) as well as periodic fasting. You want to do intermittent fasting to create autophagy, which will clean up old damaged proteins and turn them into healthy new amino acids. This happens roughly around 18 hours a day of fasting. Periodic fasting will also help speed up your results. 

Kombucha tea is a really good substitute for beer or wine. Just be sure it’s the one with the lowest amount of sugar. It’s similar to alcohol in that it can help you feel more relaxed and calm. It does have a very small amount of alcohol, but it’s an insignificant amount that should not cause problems. 

If you’re a recovering alcoholic and you want to take this to the next level, you may want to try these nutrients:

• Cysteine 
• Glycine 
• Glutamine 
• Vitamin C
• Zinc 
• B-vitamins
• Milk thistle
