    I’m writing about protein because I receive many e-mails asking about my diet; people wonder if I only eat protein, if I eat just fish, how much protein to include in the daily diet, etc. First I want to be very clear about the quantity of protein, because over-eating protein or other macronutrients will result in fat and weight gain.

So if we don’t need to consume electrolytes in the form of supplements for… Read more »
  • Shapely and Sexy Summer Calves

  • Healthy Salad Made Easy
    With summer being in full swing, lighter meals like salads are at the top of the healthy meal choice list.
