Paleo Diet: Make A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep

I see it every year at this time. I pull into the gym parking lot, and find it full to the brim with vehicles. Some I recognize, but the majority I do not. If it were any other day of the year, I would assume that some big event was taking place, but not this [...]
