So today I’m going to give you a really fantastic recipe for a low-carb spinach dip. It’s quick and easy to make and you can whip it up before you are heading out to a social gathering and you have something that you can enjoy while you are enjoying time with family and friends. Without having the stress over not following your nutritional diet plan.

Spinach Dip*

  • Ingredients for the Dip:
  • roasted garlic – one head
  • frozen chopped spinach – a 10 ounce package – make sure it is drained and thawed
  • chopped green onions – 1/2 cup
  • cream cheese or sour cream – 1 cup
  • mayonnaise – 1 cup
  • chopped fresh thyme – 1 teaspoon

After that add the sour cream or cream cheese (whichever one you have chosen to use), spinach, thye, salt,  paprika, spinach, mayonnaise and fish sauce. I would recommend that you take a small taste of this mixture while you are making it so that you could add more ingredients if necessary.

The Best Weight Loss Diet Doctors Program in Philadelphia and Bucks County

medical-weight-loss-in-philadelphiaEver since we started our weight loss programs in Philadelphia and Bucks County it is always been my goal to be the best weight-loss program in Philadelphia and Bucks County.

And we strive to do this by giving you the best quality FDA approved medical weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications combined with lots of individualized attention.  

Any doctor can give you diet, pills but taking diet pills alone does not guarantee that you are going to be able to lose weight and successfully keep the weight off.

That is why we differentiate ourselves from the rest of the medical weight loss centers by spending  a tremendous amount of time educating our weight loss patients on the proper nutrition plan that is best for their metabolic type to assist them to  safely lose as much weight as possible. 

We will also review the best type of exercise program that is best for you to burn as much body fat as possible.  for some reason lots of people are doing the wrong type of exercises for weight loss.

They are doing exercises that are designed to build muscle and bulkiness. Suffice to say people are spending hours in the gym and doing programs that are just making them bulky and increasing their body weight. 

For a regular person like you and me it’s literally impossible to burn fat and build muscle at the same time. That’s why I design programs that are made up of phases. Phase 1 is designed to lose pounds and inches, to burn body fat. When you come in and we agree that you have lost enough weight and that it is now time to start building muscle we will switch into the toning phase of our program. In this phase  the exercises you will be doing are intended to develop nice long lean tone quality muscle. 

 Even when you’re done with us and no longer need to come into our weight loss centers you can still come back to this website each and every week and benefit from the various recipes that I post here for our patients. 

I admit that it can be quite boring eating the same thing each and every day that is why I post different fantastic recipes here every week  that are totally delicious and will tantalize your taste buds.  So even if you are not one of our weight loss patients, I invite you to come back to our website once a week and just copy these recipes and postings in your Gmail account as a Google document so you have an ever growing and expanding cookbook of recipes that are going to be low-calorie, or low carbohydrate and low sugar; depending on the individual type of nutritional weight loss plan I have made for you. 

If you are not one of our weight loss patients I invite you to call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation. Call us at 215-821-7336 and Lisa will be glad to schedule your free weight loss consultation. 

Now, finally here is another one of our great recipes for a low carbohydrate pizza. 

Pizza Noah’s Favorite Barbecue Chicken Pizza*

  • Pizza Crust Ingredients:
  • eggs – take 6 large eggs and separate the whites and the yolks and place them in different bowls
  • cream of Tartar – 1/2 teaspoon
  • vegan protein powder – 1/2 cup
  • cream cheese – 3 ounces
  • Ingredients for the Sauce and the Toppings:
  • Bacon – 3 slices diced up
  • yellow onion – 2 tablespoons diced
  • chicken breast – to boneless and skinless chicken breast cut in to cubes
  • tomato sauce – 1 cup
  • tamari sauce – wheat free – 1/4 cup
  • swerve – 1/3 cup
  • Coconut vinegar – 1/4 cup
  • cloves of garlic – 3 cloves smashed
  • liquid smoke – 2 teaspoons
  • shredded cheese – 1 cup, I like mozzarella cheese but you could choose any cheese that you prefer

 Let’s start this great recipe by first preheating our oven to 325°F. After that take a 12 inch skillet preferably a cast-iron skillet and grease it with a cooking spray of your choice. Then mix together the cream of Tartar and egg whites for about five minutes or so.

Then add in our protein powder, incrementally, blending every time you add a portion. After that  mix in your cream cheese. This will give you your dough mixture and then just spread this out into your skillet. After that let’s bake this for about 15 minutes or so until the crust is nicely browned. While the crust is baking we can start making the toppings and the sauce.

Take a sauté pan and sauté the onion and the bacon until the bacon is nice and crisp. Then add the chicken pieces and cook them all away through. After that removed cooked chicken from the pan. Make sure that you leave the onions and the bacon in the pan and stir in the tomato sauce, vinegar, garlic, liquid smoke and tamari sauce and stir this all together until it’s nice and smooth.

You can also just put this whole thing in a blender and let it blend until it’s nice and smooth. Using a blender is actually be a bit more efficient. When your crust is ready remove it from the oven and top it with your chicken, shredded cheese and the sauce and then increase your oven temperature to about 400°F.

Put the pizza crust with everything on top of it back into the oven and let it bake until the cheese melts and it starts to become golden brown. This usually takes about 5 minutes. This should give you a nice size 12 inch pizza and I would suggest that you cut this into six slices. Each of these slices has approximately 600 calories, 52 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates.

I hope you enjoy this recipe is much as Noah does. If you are a loved one or friend need help with achieving your weight loss goals I invite you to call us for totally free consultation. Call Lisa now at 215-821-7336 and schedule your free weight loss consultation.

Here are 3 more great recipes to add to your cookbooks.

Elyse’s Cheesecake

Okay,  I know that if you are one of our weightless patients you are saying not a another  cheesecake recipe from Dr. Kenny but the truth is that I absolutely love cheesecake. So here is another cheesecake recipe.

  • 4 ounces of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 cup of Stevia
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla  extract
  • ⅓ cup of sour cream
  • 4 eggs

We are going start by preheating are our oven to 350°F and then we are going to whip the cream cheese until it’s fluffy, for about 4 minutes. Next we will combine the Stevia, sour cream and vanilla extract and mix this for about 4 minutes.  Next we will add the eggs one at a time mixing until everything is creamy for about a minute or so after each egg.  After this we grease a 9 inch springform pan and put the springform on a baking sheet and then pour the filling into it. We are going to bake this for approximately 50 – 55 minutes, plus or minus a few minutes until it’s lightly brown around the edges and fluffy. When it’s done you definitely want to let it cool down for a bit. I usually like to let it cool for approximately 2 hours. This makes about 10 servings.  I have tried eating it after only letting it cool for about 30 minutes but believe me it tastes much better if you let it cool for 2 hours. When my wife makes this for me she will usually make 2 at a time. Because I will always start eating one as quickly as possible and she lets the other one cool overnight. And it does taste much better the next day.

Blueberry Yogurt Bars

  • 1 cup  of full fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup of Stevia
  • ¼ cup of blueberries 

Mix the Stevia and yogurt together and pour this into a freezer safe dish. We are then going to put the blueberries over top of the yogurt and stevia mixture and then place it in the freezer and let it freeze until the yogurt is nice and solid. This may take anywhere from 2 – 3 hours. After its solid take it out of the freezer and let it just sit for about 10 minutes and finally break it into pieces. You can enjoy this immediately or you could put in freezer bags and save it for later.

Snack Bars

  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • ½ cup of Stevia
  • ½ cup of flax seed meal
  • ½ cup of almond meal
  • ½ cups of sugar free chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon of Chia seeds
  • ½ cup of almonds
  • ½ cup of cashews

Preheat our oven to 350°F and line 8 x 8 or baking dish with parchment paper. Then mix everything together until it’s totally combined. Pour this into the 8 x 8 pan and flatten it. Next we bake this for approximately 10 – 15 minutes and let it cool for a bit and then refrigerate for at least one hour. Then all you have to do is cut it into bars and enjoy. You can also keep whatever you have left over in the refrigerator so that it stays fresh.

I hope you enjoy these recipes. If you or a friend need help losing weight call us now for a free weight loss consultation at 215-821-7336

Oprah Winfrey and Weight Watchers By Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

 Unless you have been living under a rock, without a television or a smart-phone you have probably seen one of Oprah Winfrey’s commercials endorsing weight watchers.  And in my opinion, it’s about time! And that’s because our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Program is similar to Weight Watchers, except that our program is a medically supervised weight loss program and we give you a diet plan Plus we give you weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications that help eliminate your hunger and cravings and a vitamin B12 injection. 

When you come in you are:

  • Evaluated by a M.D. 
  • Given weight-loss pills – appetite suppressant medications to help control your hunger and cravings.
  • Given a vitamin B12 injection that will help boost your energy levels.
  • Given a diet plan that has been designed specifically for you.  

And we have support materials like this website and our YouTube channel where we are constantly giving you lots of delicious recipes that range from: smoothies, appetizers, entrées, desserts etc. 

We now have over 380 recipe videos on youtube. In our weight loss program you see a medical doctor that will evaluate you and make sure that you are doing the right type of program to help you lose weight. 

And in order to design the most perfect weight loss nutrition plan for you we also have you fill out a metabolism profile questionnaire and take into consideration your age, overall health and level of physical activity. Your plan is designed specifically for you.  

Because of our medical training we realize that for you to lose weight it’s not just about counting calories, points and portion control.  All of the other things that I mentioned above like your age, level of physical fitness  and any health issues that you might have  all need to be taken into consideration in order for you to effectively lose weight and keep it off.

Most people, (even most other weight loss programs) do not realize that people with certain type of health issues like diabetes, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause, perimenopause, postmenopause all require a very specific type of diet program if they want to be successful at losing weight.  So really that’s another major benefit of coming to our medically supervised prescription weight loss program.

No one understands this better than me, because I am a diabetic.  And as a diabetic there are lots of foods, that my wife can eat, but I can’t eat them, because they will just make me fat and make my diabetes worse.

So I am happy that Oprah is finally doing a weight loss program that allows her to eat real food and is similar to our program except that we are Doctors and give our patients weight loss pills, vitamin B12 shots, etc…

In fact, we have lots of patients that come to us either while they are doing or after they have tried programs like Weight Watchers, Nutri-system, Jenny Craig, Dr. Oz’s rapid weight loss plan, Medifast or any type of weight loss or diet plan. 

And the reason they come to us is because the appetite suppressant medications make it very easy for them to lose weight. 

The weight loss pills help control your appetite, cravings and binging and enable you to make sensible decisions about what you are eating.  

And often-times because of our medical training  when someone comes to us while they are doing another weight loss program and they are not totally happy with the results we usually tweak that program and then BAM  they start losing weight again.

So in conclusion with our local weight loss program you are: 

  • Evaluated by a Medical Doctor
  • Given Weight Loss Pills Appetite Suppressant Diet Medications
  • Given a Vitamin B12 Injection
  • Given a Specific Diet Nutrition Plan
  • Given an Exercise Plan if You are Able To Exercise

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that we do not charge you a new member fee or a new patient fee like so many other weight loss programs now do.  

We do not have any contracts either. 

We are here for you as long as you need us, and that’s it.  

Some people might see us once or twice over a month or two and others might see us a bit longer, it all depends on how much weight you need to lose.

And if you are doing a weight loss program like Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Dr. Oz’s rapid weight loss plan, Medifast or any type of weight loss or diet plan it’s usually perfectly fine for you to work with us and even take the weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications.  

Of course when you see the medical doctor he will only give you weight loss pills if he believes they will be safe and effective for you.

3 Tips to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia


weightlossphila-39.9500° N 75.1667° W


It always seems that from October all the way through the end of January it’s the most difficult time of year to not gain weight. Here are 3 tips to help you lose weight during the Holidays.

It’s an especially difficult time if you’re trying to lose weight. I hate to admit it but I even gained a few extra pounds over the Thanksgiving holiday. Why did I gain weigh? Because I am NOT able to resist my wife’s wonderful cooking and baking. Honestly, now just while writing this article I am thinking about the totally delicious banana bread with chocolate chips and peanut butter chips that she made.

And of course I cannot forget the pumpkin pie, coffee cake, sweet potato pie and chocolate pudding and banana pie that she made for our Thanksgiving feast. I must confess that I had more than one slice of each of these yummy goodies. And yes I did gain weight. But because I have my weight loss program in place, (the same program that I give to all of our weight loss patients), I was able to get back to my normal weight after a few days. So I decided to write this article and share a few tips that will hopefully help you avoid gaining weight during this holiday season.

Weight Loss Tip Number 1:

Skip eating breakfast. Yes you did read it right. I said do not eat breakfast for a day. On a day like Thanksgiving when you know you are going to be eating a humongous feast, it’s probably best to not eat breakfast that day. This is similar to the Protocols of intermittent fasting. With intermittent fasting you give yourself approximately 16 – 18 hours between your dinner and your lunch. The theory is that during this period of time your body will be burning all of your extra body fat. For example if you start your dinner at 7 p.m. at night you should finish around 8 p.m. Then you don’t eat until 12 noon the next day so you will be fasting for approximately 16 hours or so.

It’s really remarkable that when you do not eat for 16 to 18 hours that your body will actually increases its production of growth hormone and anabolic hormones. And these hormones increase your body’s ability to burn fat.

Simply stated when you do not eat for about 16 to 18 hours your body turns into a super efficient fat burning machine.

This will also decrease your body’s blood sugar levels. And it will even decrease your body’s cortisol levels. High levels of Cortisol in our body is known to be one of the major causes of most diseases that we suffer from.

So what I plan to do for the next holiday is to wake up have a nice cup of decaffeinated coffee with some heavy cream or half and half a packet of stevia for breakfast. After this I will try not to eat until dinner time, when I can almost eat as much as I want. I just have to be careful not to eat too many starchy carbohydrates and desserts that will turn into sugar.

We don’t want too much sugar in our bodies because when there is too much sugar in our body – insulin levels spike and this causes everything we have eaten to be stored as body fat.

Now if I get hungry and I really need to eat something at lunch time I try to keep it to healthy proteins like chicken, beef or fish and lots of leafy green vegetables like romaine lettuce and spinach. The easiest thing for me to eat would be a Cobb salad with some chicken and a very nice olive oil and vinegar dressing with oregano, salt, pepper, garlic etc.

Then after I finally eat dinner I will try not to eat for at least 12 hours. This way I give my body time to digest everything properly and help balance out my blood sugar levels. This should also help my body burn all of the excessive calories from the food that I consumed from overeating at the holiday dinner. Every time that I have done this I did not gain any weight during the holidays.

But this past Thanksgiving not only did I eat a humongous amount of food at dinner time but for breakfast I enjoyed some more of my wife’s delicious cakes and pastries. But like I said I just got back into the program the following day and I lost the weight in a couple days.

Weight Loss Tip Number 2:

Go for a walk after dinner. If you go for a nice walk after your big holiday dinner or if you play a game of football or basketball with the family your body should burn up all of the extra sugar and calories that you have eaten from your holiday meal. The more you move the better it is.

Just remember after the big feast you want to be active because the more active you are the less weight you will gain. If you are too stuffed to be active after dinner all you have to do is wake up a little earlier the next morning and go for a walk – walk outside, on a treadmill or even in the mall or ride a bike. This will also help you burn sugar, calories and fat.

Weight Loss Tip Number 3:

Eat 4-5 vegetables a day. This includes at least 2 cups of leafy green vegetables a day. This will help stuff your tummy with healthy food so there is no room for foods that make you fat.

Leafy green vegetables contain lots of nutrients to improve our overall health, decrease our appetite and help us live a skinnier, healthier and happier life.
