Abstract Objective: Examine the co-occurrence of alcohol consumption, physical activity, and disordered eating behaviors via a drunkorexia perspective. Participants: Nationally representative sample (n = 22,488) of college students completing the Fall 2008 National College Health Assessment. Methods: Hierarchical logistic regression was employed to determine if physical activity and disordered eating behaviors uniquely predicted binge drinking, while controlling for age, race, gender, year in… 
“Drunkorexia”: Understanding eating and physical activity behaviors of weight conscious drinkers in a sample of college students
TLDR
Findings suggest that Greek-affiliated students and students with weight loss intentions might be at an increased risk for BWCD, and college practitioners should consider discussing issues of weight and body image with college students as they relate to maladaptive drinking behavior.

Is "drunkorexia" an eating disorder, substance use disorder, or both?
TLDR
The findings suggest that individuals engaging in ICB-WGA may be at-risk for future development of both eating and substance disorders, and highlight the need for future research to focus on trans-diagnostic prevention programs that target mechanisms that underlie both disordered Eating and substance misuse.
Gender-moderated links between urgency, binge drinking, and excessive exercise
TLDR
Negative urgency moderated the relation between exercise and alcohol consumption in men but not women; the link between excessive exercise andalcohol use was stronger for men with higher levels of urgency.
Baseline cortisol predicts drunkorexia in female but not male college students
TLDR
Programs educating about stress management and health risks of drunkorexia may decrease engagement in drunkoresxia behaviors among college students, and multiple regressions indicated that baseline cortisol significantly positively correlated with drunkorean behaviors in women but not men.
Dietary self-monitoring is associated with increased likelihood of problematic alcohol use among college students.

TLDR
The results suggest that the dysfunctional eating behaviors often associated with dieting could also be associated with dysfunctional alcohol use, such as blackouts and unintended sexual activity.

Objective: This study examined the association between restricting calories on intended drinking days and drunkenness frequency and alcohol-related consequences among college students. Participants:
Examining Physical Activity Levels and Alcohol Consumption: Are People Who Drink More Active?
TLDR
Several studies suggest a dose-response relationship between AC and PA, indicating that as drinking increases, so does PA level, and future research should place specific emphasis on identifying why alcohol consumers exercise at higher levels than non–alcohol consumers.
Dieting frequency among college females: association with disordered eating, body image, and related psychological problems.
TLDR
Positive associations were found between dieting frequency and eating disorder symptoms and related problems such as body dissatisfaction, current body size perception, depression, exercise preoccupation, and feelings of ineffectiveness and insecurity.
The relationship between disordered eating behavior and drinking motives in college-age women.
TLDR
Support is provided for the idea that problematic eating and problematic drinking serve similar avoidant coping functions and this line of research may hold important implications for treatment interventions targeting comorbid alcohol use disorders and eating disorders.
