c. Who is a food faddist?
d. A person who indulges in crazy food habits for a brief period of time because of which they succumb to essential nutrient deficiency like thiamine deficiency.
e. An alcoholic is always overloaded with energy (ATPs), because, alcohol on getting metabolized by alcohol dehydrogenase, gives, 1 NADH (3 ATPs) and aldehyde and when aldehyde dehydrogenase acts on it 1 more NADH (3 ATPs). Hence they never feel the hunger and they thrive on poor food habits and hence suffer from essential nutrient deficiency.
