Pop star Lady Gaga's boyfriend, Luc Carl, also known as "Lord Gaga," has made headlines with a book he is writing, The Drunk Diet, which chronicles his 40-pound weight loss while maintaining a rock 'n' roll lifestyle and binge drinking daily.
"This year, he lost 40 pounds," plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon says. "Next year, he'll be dead."
According for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, binge drinking is defined as consuming five or more alcoholic drinks within two hours for males and four or more drinks in the same time frame for females.
"This is so ridiculous. What he's talking about is so, so bad for your health," OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson says. "Obviously, if you're not eating, and you're drunk all the time, and you're sleeping, you're going to lose weight, but you're going to be doing so much damage to your body. Almost every organ in your body you're going to be damaging."
In addition to harming your organs, binge drinking can lead to alcohol poisoning. Alcohol can have health benefits, but remember to drink responsibly and in moderation.
