Robert: Man vows a “beer-only” diet for Lent
A man in Ohio has decided to go all-in on Lent this year, giving up food and drink.. except beer.
Del Hall, vows he will not eat or drink anything except beer for all 46 days of Lent. He says his incredibly unhealthy diet was inspired by monks from the 1600s, who would make a special beer for Lent.
“Being master brewers, they decided they would take a popular style of beer in Germany, bock beer, make it extra hearty and that would be their liquid bread and that’s what they call it,” Hall says. “So the monks in Bavaria, they would call doppelbock liquid bread and basically it would sustain them through the 46 days of Lent.”
Hall is documenting his beer fast on his YouTube channel and says he is already starting to see weight loss from the unusual diet.
