- Cutting back on food and increasing exercise to either speed or enhance the high from drinking
- Engaging in bulimic-type behaviors: vomiting after eating, taking laxatives or using diuretics
- Boosting exercise or eating less to offset calories from drinking: this could include drinking low-calorie beers or cocktails, skipping a meal or avoiding food all day, or exercising intensely
