Meal Plan for Recovery
A well-balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein sources, and healthy fats is generally recommended for people in recovery from alcohol addiction.
Some specific nutrients that may be beneficial for individuals recovering from alcohol addiction include:
- B vitamins, which are essential for the metabolism of alcohol and can become depleted during heavy drinking.
- Vitamin C can help protect the liver from damage.
- Omega-3 fatty acids, have anti-inflammatory effects and may help protect the brain and reduce the risk of depression and anxiety.
- Fiber can help promote feelings of fullness and may reduce cravings for alcohol.
It is also important to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to help flush toxins from the body and promote overall health.
It is also advisable to avoid processed foods, sugary drinks, and caffeine during the recovery process.
A registered dietitian or nutritionist can help you create a personalized meal plan tailored to your specific needs.
