If you are one of our weight loss patients you know that I believe that food is meant to be enjoyed. Growing up in my family everything that we did, every celebration every event was always celebrated with food, and lots of. In a sense, food was a celebration of life.

And some of my happiest from childhood are of sitting together with my great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, my brother and sister, and uncles and cousins at my great-grandmothers dining room table where we feasted upon ravioli, lasagna, baked zitti, gnocchi and desserts like ricotta filled cannolis and cream puffs. Yes, you may have guessed, that I grew up in a large Italian family! And like most Italian families most interactions with one another took place at the kitchen table or dining room table enjoying good food and each other.

That is why in our weight loss program we make a point of giving you lots of recipes of wholesome food that we all grew up eating but our versions of these recipes will have lower calories and lower carbohydrates. Making them weight loss friendly. But they taste so good you won’t believe there diet food.

So here are two great recipes; one is for a low carbohydrate version of my grandmother’s rotolo and the other is for a low-carb recipe for lasagna that is quick and easy to make.

This is a family recipe that my great-grandmother Virginia has handed down to my wife. My wife has changed the recipe a bit, to make it more diabetic friendly, but it tastes just as good if not better than Great[grandma’s recipe.

Rotolo – Verdi Style

  • Ingredients for the Filling:
  • ricotta cheese – 12 ounces 1 1/2 cups
  • Parmesan cheese, approximately the 4 ounces of grated Parmesan cheese
  • finely chopped fresh oregano – 1/2 cup
  • finely chopped – fresh parsley – 1/2 cup
  • egg – 1 large egg
  • minced raw garlic – 3 cloves
  • Sea salt – 1/2 teaspoon
  • nutmeg – 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • black pepper – 1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • Additional Ingredients:
  • Roasted or delimeat chicken breast that you can get from your supermarket – cut into strips that are 1.5 inches wide and 6 inches long. You should have about 24 slices of meat.
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese – approximately the 1/2 cup
  • some additional Parmesan cheese to serve over top when everything is finished cooking.

First preheat your oven to 300°F. Combine all of the ingredients together except for the chicken breast tomato sauce and the extra 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Make sure that all of the ingredients are mixed nicely.

Then take your strips of chicken and place them on your counter and take 1/3 cup of the mixture of all your ingredients in place it on to your strip of chicken. Then start rolling it up and place it with the seam side down. Do this with the rest of your chicken strips. After that take 1 cup of your tomato sauce and pour it into the bottom of a cast iron skillet approximately 12 inches or you can use any other type of ovenproof skillet or pan.

Then take your chicken rolls and put them in the pan with them laying on their side. Take all of your roles of meat and place them in the pan so they fit very snugly. Make sure that your filling is facing upward. Next take the remaining 1 cup of tomato sauce and pour it over top. You can now put this in your oven and let it bake for approximately the 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted completely.

When it is done take it out of the oven and you can now sprinkle your mozzarella generously over top. Place it back in the oven for about another 10 minutes or so or until the cheese is melted once again. After that take it out of the oven and let it stand for at least a good 15 minutes before serving. And of course you can top it with the extra Parmesan cheese if you would like.

This recipe makes 12 servings each of them has about 386 calories, 61 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates.

Lasagna – Low Carb Style Roll Ups

  • Ingredients:
  • approximately three-quarter pound and you can use either oven roasted chicken breast from the deli counter – approximately 16 slices or you can use sliced oven roasted turkey from your deli counter. Make sure that the slices of meat are approximately 1/8 inch and you want to have 16 slices.
  • To make the filling you will need:
  • ricotta cheese – 1 cup
  • egg – 1 large egg
  • Parmesan cheese – approximately 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • mozzarella cheese – 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Additional Ingredients
  • tomatoes – three medium-sized tomatoes – sliced thin
  • fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce – meat sauce or marinara sauce

As always first we have to preheat your oven. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place your turkey on a large sheet of parchment paper. To make the filling take a large bowl and mix together the eggs ricotta cheese until their mixed nicely and then stir in the mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese.

After you have made the filling take about 1/4 cup of it and place it on top of one of your meat slices and spread it out evenly. Do this with the remaining slices of meat. Take about 3 slices of tomato and place them over top of your filling on each of the slices of meat. Next take some of your basil and place it on top of your tomatoes.

After that rollup each slice of meat and place them, seam side down, a and a baking dish that is approximately 8 inches. When you have all of the strips of meat rolled up with the mixture tomato and basil inside and placed in your baking pans top each one of them with the marinara sauce. I like to use about 2 – 3 tablespoons of the sauce.

Now we are finally ready to place it in the oven and bake it for about 25 minutes or so or until the cheese is melted. This recipe makes four servings each of them has 467 cal, 50 grams of protein and 9 g of carbohydrates.

Hi everyone if you are one of our weight loss patients in our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Center or our Bucks County Medical Weight Loss Center  you know that I have lost over 80 pounds on our program and I have kept it off.

Keeping the weight off for all of this time has taken some dedication to planning and/or preparing my meals ahead of time. Personally, I like to have 2 – 3 meals a day that taste good and are also loaded with good healthy nutrition. So these meals satisfy my tastebuds and eliminate my hunger because I’m giving my body exactly what it needs  In the form of good healthy nutrition and nourishment in the form of delicious food.

If you are new to our weight loss program I invite you to call us and schedule your free  medical weight loss consultation, call us now at 215-821-7336 and schedule your free consultation. In our weight-loss program we provide you with high-quality FDA approved appetite suppressant medications – weight loss pills, vitamin B12 injection therapy and we also instruct you in a sensible eating plan that will have you eating real delicious foods that will assist you in losing weight. If you are able to I will also review an exercise program with you. In this  post I am going to give you the recipes for meals that I’m having for breakfast lunch and dinner today. So here are the three great recipes that will tantalize your taste buds and satisfy your hunger and cravings.

Breakfast – Scrambled Eggs

  • Ingredients:
  • eggs – 3
  • butter – 2 ounces
  • salt and pepper to taste

Start by taking three large eggs cracking them open and beating them with some salt-and-pepper. Next,   take a pan add the butter to it and set it overtop a medium heat. When the butter has melted add eggs to the pan and stir this for at least 2 minutes. I like my eggs thoroughly cooked.  You can even add some type of protein like chicken, beef or fish. Often times I add bacon , avocados and some cheese. If you are super hungry you can add more butter to the recipe.

Lunch – Mega Salad

  • Ingredients:
  • beef, chicken, fish or any other protein of your choice – 4 ounces
  • leafy greens – 1 ounce
  • cherry tomatoes – 1 ounce
  • bell pepper – 1 ounce
  • cucumber – 1 ounce
  • scallion – 1/2
  • olive oil or mayonnaise – 1/4 cup

Chop your vegetable then add your greens to the bowl and then add the other vegetables. I like to add broccoli, red and green cabbage for a nice crunch to my salads.

Shred or chop vegetables of your choice. First, put dark leafy greens such as spinach or arugula at the bottom of the jar. Iceberg lettuce or romaine works too. Green and red cabbage gives a fresh crunch. Chopped broccoli or cauliflower also works great. You can also add avocado, bell peppers – red- green and yellow, carrots and any other vegetables that you like. Then top this with your protein – beef, chicken or fish. I also like to add cheese, olives, and a small amount of nuts and seeds. For the dressing I like olive oil, vinegar and herbs and spices, but sometimes I may have some mayo or lemon as a dressing.

Cheese-Filled Chicken

  • chicken breasts – 4
  • olive oil – 2 tbs
  • bell pepper – 1
  • garlic clove -1
  • pickled jalapeños, finely chopped – 2 tbs
  • ground cumin – 1/2 tsp
  • cream cheese – 3 ounces
  • shredded cheese – 5 ounces
  • salt and pepper – to taste
  • tooth picks – 4

Guacamole

  • avocados – 2
  • garlic cloves – 1-2
  • the juice of ½ lime
  • olive oil – 3 tbs
  • white onion – 1/2
  • fresh cilantro 1/3 cup
  • tomato – 1 diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • For serving
  • sour cream 2/3 cup
  • leafy greens or lettuce – 1/2 pound

Instructions

First preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Take your garlic and bell peppers and chop them up nicely. Then place them in a pan with olive oil and saute. When they are soft set them on the side in a bowl. Then stir in the cheeses, spices and japenos. Slice your chicken down the middle and spread it apart like you open the newspaper. Take a large spoonful of the mixture and place it into the middle of the chicken. Add the salt and peer to taste and any other spices you like. Fold the chicken breast and secure it with the toothpick.

Do this with all of the chicken breasts then fry them a bit. Then put them in a baking pan and bake them until they are totally cooked. You can add the remaining batter overtop of the chicken breasts before baking them. When they are cooked you can add some good health fats like guacamole or sour cream. And please add lots of vegetables. To make the guacamole all you have to do is mash the meat of the avocado, (just like mashed potatoes – but without all of the carbs), and mix in some diced tomatoes, lime juice and olive oil. You can also add other herbs and spices to give it more flavor.  Make sure you remove the toothpicks before serving this delicious dish.

Here are 2 great recipes for you. A great Parfait of Berries and Cream and awesome chicken wings that are great for Sunday football games.

Elyse’s Favorite Parfait – Berries and Cream – Paleo Recipe

  • Heavy cream– whipping cream–1/2 cup
  • Cocoa powder–1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla extract– 1 teaspoon
  • Almonds – 6 crushed almonds
  • Walnuts– 6 crushed walnuts
  • Strawberries– 3 strawberries diced
  • Raspberries – 1/3 cup
  • BlackBerries– 1/3 third cup
  • Blueberries– 10 blueberries
  • Chia seeds– 1/2 tablespoons
  • Flax seeds – 1/2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed

First put your heavy whipping cream in a large bowl and mix in the vanilla extract and cocoa powder.

Then using a mixer, mix the cream – (whip it) – for about 3 minutes. If you like, you can place this in the freezer for about 40 minutes for a nice cold snack. Then mix the nuts and berries into the cream. After that, mix in the ground flaxseed, Chia seeds and then sprinkle the cinnamon over top if you like.

This recipe makes two servings. I like this recipe because the nuts make it crunchy, the fruit makes it sweet (but not too sweet)  and the full fat heavy cream makes it even more enjoyable. This is great for breakfast and it’s also really good for a snack during the day. The nuts and cream make it hearty enough for the cold winter months and it’s also cool and refreshing for those hot summer days. It’s a perfect recipe.

Football Sunday Wings

  • Chicken wings – 2 pounds
  • Himalayan salt – 1 tablespoon
  • Ground black pepper – 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Smoked paprika – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic salt – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Optional- hot sauce- 2 tablespoons

Mix together the pepper, salt, baking powder, paprika and garlic salt. Take a large plastic Ziploc bag and add the chicken wings along with your mixture of spices. Close it and then shake the bag well to coat all of the wings with the seasoning. Preheat a large pan over medium heat and melt the coconut oil. Next check your chicken wings and place them in the skillet and then place a cover over top of the skillet and cook this for about 10–12 minutes. Then flip the wings over and let them cook for another 10–12 minutes until they are nice and brown. When they are finished cooking remove them from the heat and cool down for a little bit. You could serve them with hot sauce if you like.

Cookies and Cream Zero Belly Fat Recipe by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadlephia weight loss diet doctors where can i get phentermine in philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadlephia weight loss diet doctors where can i get phentermine in philadelphia

Hi everyone this is Dr. Kenny. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. In this blog post I’m going to give you an awesome recipe for a mug cake. It’s another twist on the recipe for a cookies and cream cake. This recipe is great because it’s loaded with cookie chunks and it’s super simple and quick to make. It has lots of good healthy protein, fiber and it’s also gluten-free,  dairy free and paleo friendly.

During the holiday season of November and December statistics tell us that people can gain anywhere from 10 pounds and is much as 20 pounds during these two months.

Between family dinners, get-togethers and celebrations with friends and family and even people bringing lots of delicious but fattening goodies into the workplace it’s very difficult to maintain any type of healthy eating program let alone a weight loss eating nutrition program.

So that is why during these next few weeks I’m going to step up my game and try to add at least three new recipes to our website. Some of these recipes may be low carbohydrate and low sugar and others will be low-calorie versions of foods that we love to eat. I am also going to try to add some healthy ingredients to foods that are normally loaded with sugar and lots of calories.

And that’s exactly what I’m doing with this recipe for this cooking cream mug cake. Usually this type of recipe has nothing but lots and lots of sugar in calories and provide no nutritional value. But by using coconut flour and almond flour we are adding good healthy fiber and significantly decreasing the amount of sugar that we would normally be eating if this recipe was made from good old white processed flour. And because we are using Stevia or swerve instead of regular sugar we are decreasing the amount of sugar that would normally be in this type of recipe. By using unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk we are also increasing its nutritional value and eliminating lots of allergic reactions that are associated with normal regular dairy products such as milk.

If you want to make this recipe totally good for you you should probably decrease the amount of optional ingredients like in the unsweetened sugar-free chocolate or vanilla chips. I just added these in their because my son Noah saw me making this recipe this morning and he wanted to add some additional flavor to the recipe. If you like the addition of the unsweetened/sugar free chocolate or vanilla chips make sure you tell Noah when you see him working in the office this summer.

If you are not one of our Philadelphia medical weight loss patients or Bucks County medical weight loss patients and would like information on our weight loss program, I invite you to call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation. Call us now at 215-821-7336 and Lisa will be more than happy to schedule your free consultation.

Now that you have your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet ingredients in another were going to combined the two of them and stir everything until it’s mixed together nicely.

Next get an over-sized mug or even better a nice sized ball and for everything into it. Place it in the microwave and cook it for about 45 seconds. Then take it out of the microwave and check it. At this point you can add your chocolate chips and place it back to the microwave and cook it for as long as it needs to cook everything thoroughly.

This could possibly take another minute or so. Total microwaving time is anywhere from 1 – 2 minutes. But again depending upon the strength of your microwave it might be a little bit more or even a little bit less time. When it’s thoroughly cooked take it out of the microwave let it cool down quite a bit before attempting to eat it. This recipe makes one serving.

So there you have it another fantastic low-carb recipe that not only taste good but it’s also very good for your waistline.

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.

So today I’m going to give you a really fantastic recipe for a low-carb spinach dip.

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.
