Man Intends To Live On Beer Alone For Lent

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the proof-that-god-loves-us dept.

Beer 5

tetrahedrassface writes "An Iowanian is living on nothing but beer for the 46 days of Lent. J.Wilson, a blogger, and editor of the weekly Adams County Free Press modeled this Lent exercise on 17'th century German Monks who practiced liquid fasts. Using a custom made grog that has high caloric values is key as Wilson says because ordinary light beer just doesn't have enough nutritional value. He has already lost 11 pounds while following his weekday four a day and weekend 5 a day beer scheme."

"An Iowanian"

Try "Iowan"

Well ... It's just plain impressive. (1)

If you were Christian, you'd want any excuse to drink too.

Nice job (1)

Apparently the Adams County Free Press doesn't have a policy that forbids employees from coming into work intoxicated...

It said he drinks 4 beers a day. An average serving of alcohol is out of your system in 1-1.5 hours.

let's say he goes to work at 8:00am...

6:00am -- Wake up, have breakfast beer.

Noon -- Have lunch beer, assuming an hour lunch, it is mostly out of his system by the time he gets back to work.

6:00pm -- Dinner beer, not at work anymore

10:00pm -- Before bed "snack".

Never once, assuming the special beer has a standard level of alcohol, would he ever be to the point of "intoxicated" at any point in the day. In fact, he would never even be close to the legal BAC limit for driving.

You are also assuming that he goes to work and doesn't Telecommute.
