Ideal Protein Post Holiday Reset
Happy New Year Everyone!
Are your pants feeling a little tighter after the holidays? Mine are.
This is the perfect time to come back in, reset your pancreas, and get back to your ideal weight! Your body naturally stores 2-5 lbs of fat yearly.
An annual Phase 1 Tune-Up is necessary, taking 2 weeks or more, depending on weight gain.
Whether or not you’ve gained weight, the Novi Cur cleanse is recommended twice annually.
Call 905-426-7690 to book your appointment and start 2013 off right!

Did You Know?
Many of us have resolved to diet and get fit as a New Year resolution, year after year after year.
We start off determined and ready, only to abandon our plans, hopes, and dreams of a svelte, fit body because the programs we join are too hard to maintain, boring, or time consuming.
Ideal Protein foods take only 10 seconds-2 minutes to prepare and there is such a variety that you can go a full 20 days without eating the same thing twice.
Make 2013 the year you experience your very last diet with Ideal Protein.

In medium bowl, mix 1kg ground beef (lean or extra lean), 3pkgs beef bouillon powder (i.e Oxo), 2 eggs, 2Tbsp minced onion, 1Tbsp garlic powder, 3Tbsp Walden Farms BBQ sauce, 1Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 8 drops hot sauce, 1 tsp hot pepper flakes, 1 Tbsp steak spice, ½ tsp pepper, 1tsp sea salt, 1Tbsp dried parsley. Can bake right away or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for few hours or more, to let flavours marry. When ready, preheat oven to 375F. Shape mixture to fit an 8.5×4.5×2.5 loaf pan and place on middle rack of oven. Bake 1hr, or until internal temperature reaches 170F and outside of loaf is firm and brown. Let sit 5minutes prior to slicing. Serves 6. Top with sautéed mushrooms and garlic and serve with roasted or mashed cauliflower or roasted turnip (see previous newsletter recipes) and lots of steamed veggies of your choice.
Leftovers are delicious chopped into a salad!
