Protein and Weight Loss

I have decided that taking a 2 mile walk three times a day is a bit impractical, so I am aiming for doing it twice (weather permitting). Yesterday I did get in my three walks, and stuck to my low cab, high protein diet. I have found omelette makers a real help for my breakfast, […]
