Recipe from Chew Out Loud! (changes made to make the recipe Metabolism Miracle-friendly!

“This Thai Basil Chicken with Peppers is ten times better than any takeout, plus way healthier to boot. Skip the takeout and make your own scrumptious Thai Basil Chicken for dinner”. If desired, pair with cauliflower rice; adding no countable carb grams to the dish!

We strongly recommend using boneless chicken thighs for this recipe, as it will result in a much more tender bite than chicken breasts.

Don’t skimp on the garlic and basil…the more the merrier.

    Hi, and thank you.
    I am almost at goal and worked your plan every day for almost a year. Is there any way I can speed up just a bit? I go for my annual physical early July. I don’t know the calories in your wonderful recipes and think I might cut back if I want to see more results. I exercise every day.

    Thank you and God bless you and your work.

      Hi Joyce! Are you from NJ? I used to live in Branchburg, NJ! The closer you get to your desired weight, the “slower” the weight loss (scale weight) moves because MM is a fat burning diet. You don’t want to lose muscle or get dehydrated. Muscle loss and water loss move the scale faster…but leave you with a slower metabolic rate and less muscle tone…plus dehydrated.
      Did you know that scale weight is not the way to measure your final weight? Please know that after MM weight loss, you will look about 15 pounds lighter because you’ve lost all fat tissue. So the scale may say 150 pounds, but you look and wear clothes the size of a 135 pound woman. So don’t base your “desired weight” on a number on the scale. You are at your desired weight when you like your size, feel great, look great, have energy. You may be seeking a weight number that is not necessary!
