? drunkorexia

noun; blending and clipping
a dangerous condition in which a one starves themselves for a short period (day(s)) in order to avoid excessive calorie intake from drinking at a party, leading to faster intoxication
 
This word does not refer to a disorder such as the case f anorexia but to a condition. It was probably coined because of the way an individual will not eat, similarly to anorexics, and end up "drunk" much dangerously faster.
Etymology : Drunkorexia was formed by blending the work "drunk" and a clipping of "anorexia" of Greek origin meaning "without appetite desire (etymonline.com).
