Photo: Army vet loses over 40 pounds by only drinking beer for Lent
Del Hall explains how he did it.
An Ohio man didn’t eat any food for 46 days. Instead, he spent Lent downing craft beer.
Del Hall, who says he drinks beer for a living, works at Cincinnati’s Fifty West Brewing Company. Hall wasn’t buzzed because he spaced out the alcoholic beverages throughout each day. The army veteran lost 44 pounds over the course of about 40 days after being inspired to try an old Catholic tradition.
“I’m having so much fun with all this,” Hall told “Fox & Friends First” Tuesday. “Being a beer guy, you always hear this story about the monks in Bavaria, like in the 1600s, that they gave up all solid food for Lent and they only drank this special kind of beer that they called doppelbock. It’s got a lot of nutrients in it, a lot of carbohydrates, and a lot of sugar.”
