For an entire month, an Arizona man solely ate beer and sausages—and lost weight.
Evo Terra, a Tempe resident who works for a digital marketing agency, started his first "brew diet" two years ago. Inspired by Oktoberfest, his unusual diet consists of craft beer and quality sausages. In 2011, he shed 14 pounds and dropped his cholesterol by 30 percent.
But, there's a catch. Under the medical supervision of his doctor, Terra's diet restricts his caloric intake to about 1,500 calories a day, which amounts to about two sausages (of standard bratwurst size) and five beers each day. Terra explains to Fox News that a man of his size burns about 2,100 calories, so the deficit of about 600 calories means his body "sheds away the fat."
Right now, Terra is about one week away from completing his third time doing the beer-and-sausage diet, and he's lost 12 pounds as of this morning.
Check out the slideshow above to learn more details about Terra's beer-and-sausage diet, including what his friends and family think and what foods he misses the most.
