Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Every year I personally revisit the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol just to keep things in check.  Some people think I’m crazy, but having the knowledge and experience that I do, I see things differently.  The way I see it, if I gain 5-7 pounds in a year, why not take care of it when […]
