Why didn't I think of this?! An Ohio man made news when he decided to give up food and drink only beer for Lent (he does also drink water and coffee). After one week the guy is down nearly 20 pounds!
Del Hall–an employee at Fifty West Brewing Company in Cincinnati, Ohio–decided to adopt the methods of 17th century Bavarian monks who once brewed beer specifically for a liquid-only Lenten fast.
The Army veteran began on March 6th, Ash Wednesday, and in just over one week, he’s shed over 17 pounds by having anywhere from two to five beers a day. He began the mission weighing 292 pounds, he’s now down to 275.
Seems like a nice guy, and that's saying a lot about someone from Ohio.
