Default Meat and beer diet?

A while back I was watching some CrossFit videos and I remember in one of Nicole's videos about nutrition she mentioned she knew someone who went on a diet of basically beer and wings and that he lost weight however she didn't recommend this as it wasn't too healthy. That really goes without saying but I was still curious as to the whole story.

I searched the CrossFit board and even posted this question there but I figured I would also post it here since there are some here who previously posted there but now don't post there blah, blah, blah........

Does anyone know any details of this story like who, what, where, when, why, how long, or a link where I can read about it?

I'm really just curious.

I don't know how that would be surprising as long as you didn't go overboard on the amount of meat and beer you ate.

10 beers a day and 2 x 16 oz steaks is basically 2200 calories. Will vary with amount of fat on the steak and type of beer.

As far as health goes I wouldn't recommend it, I'd switch out the beer with red wine.

You can lose weight on a diet like that if the total calories are low enough. A college buddy of mine lost 80 pounds a diet composed entirely of beer and Ramen Noodles.

Obviously you can't get all your macros from this sort of diet, but it's fine once in awhile (i.e. three times per week or more). This is what my Saturday recovery day looked like.

This is why you are my hero Gant

Like everyone else has stated, moderation would be key, I would think. That and you'd be missing out on all those vitamins from the veg. I know, bleh, veg. But I do love some of the green stuff with meat. But with more emphasis being on the meat, of course

Someone want to start a new thread? Since I'm only a fan of beer these days (I love me some BBQ but I don't eat it anymore or my training goes in the crapper with back pain), I figure a fan of both should start it.

Is that the typical bbq sauce that does it or something else?
