The answer is clearly no to me! Plus update..............
I read the sports news today and at first I was a little bit shocked but soon I was only angry. Scandalous what happens again.

The past 10 days I have been feeling sick. Nothing really serious, a cold / flu, it started with sore throat that quickly turned into sneezing / coughing and a very nasty headache.

It's almost more difficult to come up with a list of cyclists who don’t use ;-)
COLA LIGHT, AN OBSERVATION ;-)
I was once on holiday on a little Greek island when it struck me for the first time. Since then I look for it more frequently, and I often noticed the phenomenon.

The waiter came to visit them and the bigger girl ordered a Diet Coke ... the two others took a beer.

Many diets promise a lot but actually getting rid of fat is obviously not easy. You really have to work hard to achieve that. This is a plan I made that ensure you to burn 6 kg of fat in 6 weeks. So not just lose 6 kg of weight, but really burn 6 kg of fat! For a reasonably fit person this is often just the finishing touch to looking really good.
