His mother and father both suffered heart attacks in their fifties and his grandmother (on his mother’s side) had two strokes. He drinks energy drinks in the morning with bacon and eggs, and has two hamburgers and a plate of fries for lunch every day. He always has a serving of meat and salad for dinner, and a bag of potato chips and a diet soft drink for a snack in the evening.
