On Wednesday, Del Hall's first meal of the day is a yuzu ginger sour.
More than 40 days into his beer-only Lenten fast, Hall says his palate is incredible. The Pleasant Ridge man describes the yuzu, a citrus popular in Asia, as delicate and the first sip of the beer is tart and bright.
The beer, called Twelfth & Central, is a 50 West Brewing Company collaboration with Zundo Ramen and Donburi.
"I feel like I'm in my 20s," the 43-year-old Army veteran said.
After 40 days, Hall said:
- He needs less sleep
- His mind is clear
- He said he feels like there's no inflammation in his body
He also lost 40 pounds. There might be something to this...
