I have to admit, I like the stuff. So does bestselling author Joe Konrath. He likes it so much, he decided to try to live on it for thirty days.

No pretzels. No peanuts. Just beer. Insane.

But if you think that's something, check this out: starting February 1, I will live WITHOUT BEER for twenty-nine days. That's right, no beer for the entire month of February.

I know what you're thinking. Jude, have you lost your mind? Maybe. But I think I can do it.

Not only will I give up beer for the entire month, I'm also going to try to eat better. My diet will consist of mostly fresh fruits and vegetables. And, I'm going to exercise more than I do now.

Jude! Don't do it! Think of your loved ones!

I know, I know. But this is something I feel like I need to try. Like some guys need to swim the English Channel or climb Everest.

Will I lose weight? Will I be in better shape by the end of the month and have more energy? Will I be able to watch THE SUPER BOWL without salivating over the commercials?

Stay tuned.
