The Lenten Beer Diet... No, Not Me!

 
I came across this link earlier today... about a guy who, for lent, is going to spend 46 days fasting from solid food and attempting to survive on beer alone.  The guy's blog is called "Diary of a Part-time Monk" and this is in reference to when monks would survive off of doppelbock alone for a 46-day period.  Apparently it's 46 instead of 40 because now we don't "fast" on Sundays during lent or something?  Seems a little extreme to me, but hey, I'm looking forward to checking in on the guy's progress.  Maybe I'll consider trying this next year?  Okay... very doubtful.
