Healthy Chicken Recipes to Lose Weight

June 20, 2011

Last week was a historic day for me.  For the first time in a decade, I weighed in at below 190 lbs.  As I mentioned, I weighed below 190 lbs when I was in high school, 15 years ago.  But during last week, I’ve gained some weight.  I believe I’ve gained some muscle because I [...]
