Man Celebrates Octoberfest and Actually Loses Weight Consuming Only Beer & Sausages

Terro started this curious diet three years ago, and lost 14 pounds while celebrating Octoberfest in this unique fashion.

BERLIN, GERMANY - JANUARY 18: A host prepares grilled bratwurst at a meat company's stand at the 2013 Gruene Woche agricultural trade fair on January 18, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. The Gruene Woche, which is the world's largest agricultural trade fair, runs from January 18-27, and this year's partner country is Holland. According to a recent study the average German consumes 1094 animals in his or her lifetime, including four cows, four sheep, 12 geese, 37 ducks, 46 turkeys, 46 pigs and 945 chickens.

The beer and bratwurst fan, Evo Terro claims that he limits his calorie intake to 15,000 per week (that's up to six beers a day and his solid food reportedly consists of  just sausages). WCCO reports that Mr. Terro started this curious diet three years ago, and lost 14 pounds while celebrating Octoberfest in this unique fashion. His doctor, Terry Simpson, is carefully monitoring Evo and says that his patient's weight and cholesterol showed improvement during the month.

Wondering how much food Terro might be eating, we did the calorie math on his beer and sausage diet.

So, 15,000 calories per week works out to just over 2,100 calories per day:

(We did not account for bread/buns for the bratwurst.)

Mr. Terro is also quick to point out, while he may consume six beers each day, he's not driving under the influence. His son reportedly drives him wherever he needs to go during month of October.
