The Beer Diet
Could you survive on a beer and water dietfor 46 days?
By Andrew Daniels, Men's Health
Most people give up their most nagging vices for Lent like candy, curse words, and Facebook.
But J. Wilson decided to abstain from solid food, choosing instead to drink nothing but beer and water for 46 days.
Strange? You bet. But Wilson, a 38-year-old editor from Iowa, wanted to see if he could emulate German monks of the 16th century who supposedly lived solely on doppelbock beer"liquid bread"during Lent.
So he teamed up with an Iowa brewery to create his own doppelbock that would sustain him for 46 days, and got to drinking. Men's Health caught up with Wilson now 25 pounds slimmer to get the scoop on his extreme experiment, and to see how he's holding up.

I've heard that in World War I and maybe II, many British Irish troops lived on Guinness. Lot of B vitamins and yeast.
I've always referred to beer as liquid vitamins for my male friends.....lol
