Man Loses Weight With Beer And Sausage Diet

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fad diets come and go, but the guys out there should be able to get behind this one: An Arizona man is shedding pounds by eating sausages and drinking beer.

Evo Terro is celebrating Oktoberfest by eating only sausage and drinking up to six beers a day. It comes out to about 15,000 calories a week.

Terro first started the unusual diet three years ago.

His doctor is keeping a watchful eye to make sure his October diet isn’t compromising his health.

“He blew everything out of the water, the first year he did this, he lost fourteen pounds,” said Dr. Terry Simpson, a weight loss specialist. “Most of it was body fat. His cholesterol went down by a third.”

Not to worry, with all the beer consumption, Terro isn’t getting behind the wheel to drive. His son drives him around town.
