One of the most popular new year resolutions is to lose weight. But if you don’t have the proper plan, the correct information and realistic guidance most people do not achieve their goals. And this is why I believe that our weight loss programs are so successful. Because we try our best to work with our weight loss patients in developing a realistic weight loss plan that they are able to do in their hectic and crazy busy life.

We also try to have people eat foods that they really enjoy. So our medical weight loss program goes way beyond weight loss pills, appetite suppressant medications, diet pills and vitamin B-12 injections therapy. In addition we will instruct you in a plan that will include the proper types of food that you should be eating for your metabolism, body type, how many calories you should be eating in a day and recommending the proper type of physical activities/exercise that will help you lose weight, burn body fat and not be bulky and blocky.

It’s unbelievable how many people come into our office and are exercising almost every day and they are just getting heavier, bigger and developing a body that looks like a block or a square. And most of the time this is because they are doing the wrong types of exercises.

If your goal is to lose pounds and inches there were certain type of exercises that work best for this. And they are totally different from exercises that are designed to increase muscle mass. So if you are exercising to lose weight and body fat and are just getting heavier and more bulky you’re probably doing the wrong type of exercises. So call us for your free consultation and let us help you design a plan that will assist you in achieving your goals.

Biscotti Low Carb & Gluten Free

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large egg
  • Swerve – ⅓ cup
  • stevia extract – ¼ tsp
  • butter – ¼ cup
  • vanilla extract, sugar free – ½ tsp
  • almond flour – 1 and ¾ cups
  • xanthan gum – ¼ tsp
  • unsweetened cocoa – ½ cup
  • baking soda – ½ tsp
  • salt – ¼ tsp
  • cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Optional items include chopped nuts and sugar free chocolate chips

Instructions:

First we should preheat our oven to 325 F. Then in a bowl, stir or blend together the eggs, butter, vanilla extract, swerve and stevia. In another bowl stir together the remaining ingredients until they are mixed nicely. Then combine the ingredients of both bowls and you can add the sugar free chocolate chips and the nuts if you would like to.

Mold this into a nice big dough ball. Next grease a cookie sheet and spread the dough out and form your typical biscotti. Next we bake this for about 25 minutes, just until it’s slightly browned. Take it out of the oven and decrease the temperature to 275 F. Allow the biscotti to cool down for about 14 minutes and cut it into strips that are approximately one half inch wide. Then put the individual biscotti on their side onto the cookie sheet and bake them for another 25 – 30 minutes, or for as long as to takes for them to cook to a nice crispness.

This recipes makes about 15 biscotti and each has approx 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Low Carb

  • Ingredients:
  • Low carbohydrate chocolate cookies – one pound (the above cookie recipe is perfect for this)
  • butter – ½ cup
  • cream cheese – 8 ounces
  • Swerve – ⅔ cup
  • stevia extract – ½ tsp
  • heavy cream – 1 cup
  • eggs – 6 large
  • coconut flour – 2 tbsps
  • vanilla extract – sugar free – 2 tbsps

This is a really fantastic recipe. To start just take a 9 inch spring form pan and grease it. Then preheat your oven to 350°F. Next break up your cookies into very tiny crumbs. You can use your hands or just use your food processor to do this. Divide your cookie crumbs into two separate bowls and stir one half into your melted butter. You are going to take this butter and cookie crumb mixture and line the bottom of your springform pan with it.  

After doing this place the pan in your refrigerator. Next you want to blend together your swerve, whipping cream and cream cheese. Make sure that you use a large bowl for this.  When it’s nice and smooth you can add the vanilla, coconut flour and eggs and stir everything until it’s creamy smooth. Then take your springform pan out of the refrigerator and pour half of your cream cheese mixture over top of the crust. Then take the other half of your cookie crumbs and pour that over top and then just pour the rest of the creamy mixture over top of that. Next place this in the oven and let it bake for about an hour or so. You want to bake it for as long as it takes for the center to become very firm.

Finally take the cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool down. Personally I like to let it cool down for at least one hour and then you can remove it from the pan. For the best tasting cheesecake I like to leave it in the refrigerator until the next day. This is one of those recipes where there cake will actually taste better the next day.  This recipe makes 12 servings each of them having about 3 – 4 grams of carbohydrates.

If you need help achieving your weight loss goals I invite you to call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation at 215-821-7336. Call now and Lisa will be glad to schedule your free consultation for you. Happy holidays and I hope you enjoy these recipes is much as I do.

Yes, that’s right. With our weight loss program you get to eat more to lose more weight. Losing weight with our medical weight loss program does not mean that you have to give up all of the foods that you love.

You just have to eat sensibly and have a game plan. For most of the patients in our Philadelphia weight loss program and our Bucks County weight loss program this means that they can enjoy most of the foods that they love.

They just have to pay attention to portion size and make the right decisions. Most of our weight loss plans allow you to eat almost everything in moderation. So, this means that you are going to eat lots of good food and enjoy yourself.

Starvation type diets usually just set you up to fail eventually and that is why we do not believe in starvation diets.

On this site you will find recipes for low carbohydrate and low sugar cheesecake, low-calorie lasagna, sugar-free ice cream, and even low carbohydrate and sugar free dessert recipes like tiramisu, cannolis and Panna Cotta.

Mix everything together until it forms a nice doughey texture.

I usually stir these in a Tupperware container that is airtight in the refrigerator and they normally stay for about 1 week like this. But I have put them in the freezer for as long as three weeks and they were perfectly fine. This recipe makes 12 bagels and each of them has 119 cal, 2 g of carbohydrates, 8.9 g of fat and 7.8 g of protein.

Here are the 2 low calorie recipes I promised you:

Avocado Soup*

This is a phenomenal recipe it makes 6 servings and each has 64 cal, 5 g of fat, 5 g of carbohydrates in 2 g of protein.

  • The ingredients are:
  • 2 small peeled and seeded avocados – cut up
  • 1/2 cup of seeded and peeled  chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup of chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
  • 14.5 ounces of reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups of water with several dashes of hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/3 cup of refrigerated fresh salsa
  • snipped fresh cilantro

For this recipe we’re going to start by combining the avocados, onion, carrots, cucumber, garlic and the chicken broth in a blender and blend until everything is nice and smooth. Next add the water, hot pepper sauce and salt and cover this again and blended until everything is combined nicely and it’s creamy and smooth. Then all you have to do is pour the mixture into a large bowl or Tupperware container and cover and refrigerate this for several hours. I usually like making this a day of head of time so we are enjoying a nicely chilled avocado soup when we do eat it. When you are ready to serve all you have to do is spoon the soup into your soup bowls and then sprinkle each serving way after paprika, salsa and snipped cilantro.

Black Bean and Chicken Pesto Wraps*  

This is a great recipe that makes approximately 4 servings each of them having approximately 300 cal, and 35 g of carbohydrate.

  • The ingredients are:
  • 15 ounce can of no salt added black  beans – rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup of loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • two cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 12 ounces of skinless boneless chicken breast sliced in half and cut into strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano – crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 4 multigrain flatbread wraps
  • 2 cups of fresh shredded fresh spinach
  • one small red pepper – cut into bite-size strips

In a bowl let’s combine the beans, onion, cilantro, 1 tablespoon of the lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon of the chili powder, the garlic, crushed red pepper and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Mash all of this together until it’s just about smooth. You can use anything you like to mash this I use a potato masher.  Then just set this on the side. In another bowl toss the chicken breast strips with the rest of the chili powder, oregano and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix this nicely together so that the chicken absorbs all of the spices. Then you want to use a large skillet and cook the chicken in oil over medium – high heat for 4 – 5 minutes or for long as it takes for the chicken to be thoroughly cooked so that there is no pink remaining. After that remove from the heat and stir in the leftover 2 tablespoons of lime juice. To make the wraps all you have to do is spread the bean mixture evenly on each of the 4 wraps. Then top with the spinach, sweet pepper strips and the chicken and just roll them up and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do.

Fat Burning Hunger Killing Sweet Snacks

medical weight loss in philadelphia pa

medical weight loss philadelphia,

Hi everyone, today I’m going to give you one of my favorite sweet treat recipes. I am going to give you the recipe for an awesome totally delicious peanut butter cup.

The best part about this recipe is that it tastes great and is low in carbohydrates and low in sugar. So if I ever get unusually hungry and craving something sweet I just eat one or two of these and my cravings go away.

If you are new to our medical weight loss program and you would like more information on our medically supervised weight loss program just call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation. Call us at 215-821-7336 and you can schedule your weight loss evaluation for any of our office locations.

Now here is that awesome recipe I told you about:

Low Carbohydrate Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Ingredients:
coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
unsalted grassfed butter – 2 tablespoons
all natural organic (preferably sugar free) peanut butter – 4 tablespoons
cocoa powder – 3 teaspoons
stevia – 3 green packets
vanilla extract or any other sugar free flavor (I really like caramel so I use a sugar free caramel syrup quite often)- 1 teaspoon
Full fat cream cheese one and a half tablespoons

Instructions:
If you have a hand mixer or blender I suggest that you use it for this recipe. Start by adding all of the ingredients into a microwavable save container and use your hand mixer to blend everything together. After everything is mixed nicely place it in your microwave and set this for 20 seconds. Then let it cool down, mix everything again and then place it back in the microwave for approximately 10 more seconds. At this point if it is too chunky or thick stir everything again and then set it back in the microwave for approximately all 10 – 30 seconds. After that take it out of the microwave, please make sure that you do not burn yourself. And pour the mixture into a mini cupcake pan. This many cupcake pan should have a serving size of 12. After pouring the mixture evenly into the 12 sections place it in your freezer for at least one hour. This recipe will make 12 many chocolate peanut butter cups and each of them will have approximately 1.25 grams of carbohydrates, approximately 7 grams of fat and about 1 gram of protein.

I really do hope you enjoy this recipe is much as I do. It is one of my go to snacks. And I really love that it taste just like a regular peanut butter cup but it does not have all of the bad sugar and carbohydrates. This is great for me because as a diabetic I have to be really careful when it comes to the sugars and amount of carbohydrates that I eat during the day.
