The Beer Drinker's Diet was an interesting book published late in 2006 about how you can lose weight while drinking beer occasionally. The author uses himself as a case study, where he lost 114 pounds using this weight loss approach. The book was more of a passing fad though, since it became popular quickly when it was released, but then also died off in popularity quickly too, most likely because of the fact that the majority of people were not able to duplicate the author's success, or maybe the fact that there are many better ways to lose weight and getting alcohol involved usually doesn't help the process?
A much different approach to weight loss is called The Lemonade Diet, which is a fasting diet that involves cleansing and detoxifying your body over a 10 day period while only drinking a special lemonade mixture, including fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper, which provides your body with the nourishment it needs during this phase. So, this is not considered a true fast (where there would be no nutrition at all), and it's also not a plan for rapid weight loss by starving the body (not good), but instead the body is able to cleanse, heal, and detoxify in a much safer way, and then afterwards it is able to process regular foods in a more efficient manner.
