During the Lent season, many give up pop and sweets, some toss away beer or alcohol for the 40 day fasting period. But for one Ohio man, drinking only beer is what has helped him lost over 30lbs.

“Weirdest thing is my dreams, I have been dreaming about food every night,” Hall said.

For 46 days, Hall says he will have an assortment of beer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hall says he is following the lead of monks in the 1600s, who would fast during the season by a bock beer diet.
