Unhinged Illinois Man Does ‘Beer Only Diet’ For 40 Days, Lost 18lbs
Let me start by saying, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Actually, STAY HOME if you are going to do this. This dude is a serious beer drinking professional, seriously he is. BlockClubChicago
Bar owner Patrick Berger stopped eating food, and drank ONLY BEER because the 17th century Paulaner Monks did it.
“I’ve known about the beer fast for 20-plus years. I’ve always been fascinated by it and thought, ‘oh that would be great, I’d love to try that someday,'” - Patrick Berger
There was a man form Ohio that did this, and he learned from this non food eating individual to perfect his beer drinking fast. Del Hall, a director of sales for "50 West Brewing" in Cincinnati, Ohio lost 44 pounds in 46 days...just drinking beer. Wow!
One of the biggest things, drinking water. Consume about a gallon per day according to Mr. Hall.
What about Patrick, and his "support staff," his wife. What does she think about this?
After breaking it down, and figuring out that even though HE'S DRINKING BEER ALL DAY AND NIGHT...he's “not drunk all the time” she supported this journey.
What about his doctor, maybe just maybe the doc could supply some helpful hints?
“I did not tell my doctor."
I can't imagine a doctor that would agree with this!
In the end did this mess with his body, yes. Did he probably do some internal damage...sure. He did lose around 20lbs...I'm sure the doctor would NOT approve this method.
