A beer diet sounds like something The Brewmance would dream about. But, this concept is not just the subject of dreams. It's real.
During lent, one man from Cincinnati went on a beer exclusive diet. During the course of the 40 plus days Del Hall did not eat food. He drank two to five beers per day. Get this. At the end of it, Hall lost 41 pounds. He told Cincinnati.com, 'Beer isn't as bad a people think. People really vilify beer. Everything in excess is bad for you and really, the average American diet will kill you faster than craft beer will.'
Hall isn't the only one trying the beer diet. A professional athlete is too. Detroit Piston's center Andre Drummond is adding beer to his diet. Drummond is 6'11" and weighs 279 pounds. He's a huge human. Drummond works out hard and having recently cut red meat out of his diet his trainers grew concerned he wouldn't get enough calories without steak so they told him to add more beer to his diet.
He told the Detroit Free Press, 'if you do it the right way, it’s actually not bad for you and that’s why I’m doing it.' See, in moderation there can be 'some' benefits to drinking beer though we won't find nutritionists who recommend a full-fledged beer diet.
At this point, Drummond is only drinking Miller Lite and Corona. Maybe Piston fans can show him some of the better craft beers available in Detroit.
