Keep in mind: weighing 352 pounds means I had/have more weight to lose than most people. I'm hopeful that I'll get back down to a healthy 20 [...]

New breakfast drink – Mountain Dew Kickstart

By |March 12th, 2013|Categories: Articles, Drink|

What was Pepsi thinking? Well, they want to attack the energy drink market that consumers (like myself) use to stay awake... or wake up in the morning.
