(WHO/NBC) - Could this be the next diet craze? Or is it just crazy?

Frank Beard of Des Moines, Iowa, is trying a 30-day diet that entails only eating food purchased at a gas station.

Beard said he wants to prove you can be healthy while on a road trip.

While traveling for work, the health-conscious dieter is sharing his path to weight loss on social media.

Beard is chronicling his food choices on his blog and Instagram page.

About half way through his diet, Beard said he has lost three pounds.

"Gas stations can be really difficult. It's easy around here (Iowa), but some states just don't have any good gas stations. So, I thought, 'That's what I'll do, for 30 days. I'll eat food only from gas stations, and I'll track everything on MyFitnessPal to show that I'm still healthy,'" said Beard.
