Brewer gives up food for 46 days in Lent and will survive on beer instead


A BREWER has given up food for 46 days in Lent — and will survive on beer instead.

Del Hall, 45, claims he loses 3½ stone from his liquid diet as he ditches his fast food lifestyle.

He started his challenge on Ash Wednesday — February 17 — and will keep it up until his first proper meal of soup on Easter Monday, April 5.

Del says there is a beer for every mood, claiming: “If I wake up with low blood sugar, I will have a breakfast stout made with oatmeal, with coffee brewed into the beer, and it really hits the spot.”

Now doing it for the third year in a row, he says the first week is the hardest as he breaks his “food addiction”.

On doctor’s orders, he also drinks water.

Single Del, from Cincinnati, USA, is 6ft 3ins and weighs 18½ stone.

He hopes to raise £35,000 for diabetes charities.
