indexA Canadian has sworn off food and pledged to sustain himself on just beer, tea and water for the 40 days of Lent.

Chris Schryer is now 22 days into a 40 day challenge which will see him drink beer for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next 18 days, according to a report by The National Post. 

He told the paper: “I look pretty healthy now, but by the end of the 40 days my wife figures I’ll look like a castaway on account of my bushy beard,” said Mr. Schryer on Monday, soon after finishing off the pint of ale comprising his afternoon snack.

Schryer, a 33-year-old web designer, starts his day at 7.30am with a 341ml bottle of Amsterdam Brewing Company’s Doppelbock beer and one cup of sugared tea.
