Liquid Diet

Last winter my dad and I were walking along a beach north of Roads End, Oregon talking about the legend of some Bavarian city that was under siege that converted all it’s grain to beer instead of bread because it had more calories. We figured it was mostly BS but a great story none the less. We also discussed what that much alcohol would do to your body. From his experience as an ER physician, he said it was entirely possible to last long periods of time on just calories from alcohol. The human body is an amazing thing.

The discussion left us with some amount of uncertainty as to how long the feudal village could actually last under siege. Thank god for the Internet, because some crazy Atlantan is actually going on a Liquid Diet consisting of beer and water.

My only suggestions – watch your blood pressure too. And keep the posts coming. In the name of Science!
