An Ohio man said he is only drinking beer for the duration of Lent — the religious observance that lasts from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

During that time, many people fast, often giving up meat or something else in order to draw themselves closer to God. But Del Hall is taking it a little further, ditching food altogether.

So far, Hall said that everyone he has told his plan to seems to share the same sentiment.

“They think I'm crazy,” Hall told WKRC.

The Ohio resident has met challenges before and is confident this won't be the one to do him in.

"I'm an Army veteran. I was No. 1 in my class in the Army, I've run a full marathon before, 26.2 miles. I've done big challenges, but this seems very daunting, so I'm just curious if I'm up to the challenge. If I'm going to be able to do it or not,” Hall said.

Admittedly, 46 days of all beer and no solids can seem a little daunting.

"I am nervous. I'm very nervous about it. Like I said before, I've only fasted for four days."

Hall said he’s inspired by monks who did a bock beer fast in the 1600s, so this should be a breeze.

“That would be their liquid bread and that's what they call it. So the monks in Bavaria they would call doppelbock liquid bread, and basically it would sustain them through 46 days of Lent."

In other words, no pressure.
