From a Size 18 Divorcee to a Sexy Curvy Size 12/14 Newlywed

weightlossphiladelphiadietdoctorsCongratulations to Susan who dropped from a size 18 to a curvaceous size 12/14. First let me say that Susan gave us permission to tell her story and she actually insisted we tell her story in hopes of helping people in her same situation.

In our medical weight loss program people come to us to help them lose weight for so many different reasons. Some people may have to lose weight because of health reasons while others are looking to lose weight for some type of family or school reunion and then some are just looking to lose weight to fit into a bathing suit before their vacation.  

And for some losing weight can be a triumphant personal victory and such is the case with Susan. You see Susan was a happily married 57-year-old  woman with 3 children.  But as it turns out Susan’s husband was not quite as happy as she was and he left her for a much younger woman.

Financially Susan was left secure by her husband because he was a very successful businessman but emotionally she was totally devastated.  It took quite a bit of time for Susan’s friends to finally convince her to start dating, to get her life back.

And being good friends they set her up on lots of blind dates but sadly there was never a 2nd date. Finally Susan had enough and she decided it was time to do something about her situation.

She decided to find love again.

Susan’s first visit with us was not easy. She gave us every reason why the program was not going to work for her.  She also told us that she was never a skinny girl. She was never a size 4, she was never a size 6. But just like we tell all of our patients not everyone is meant to be a size 2, not everyone is meant to be a size 4 or even a size 10. You just have to be happy with yourself and be the best possible you that you could be. I explained to Susan that in our program we take into consideration your body type. And we try to help you appreciate the body that God gave you.

If you are a curvy lady be thankful for the curves that God gave you and if you are a skinny lady be thankful for the body that God gave you. Our program is all about appreciating yourself. 

While we do help people that must lose lots of weight we also help ladies (and men) that just need to  lose a tummy fat, thigh fat and maybe some arm fat and then just tone everything up with walking and maybe even some resistance training just using rubber bands that they sell in the stores that are inexpensive. So again our program is designed to help you be the best you. Our goal is to help you appreciate who you are and what you are. And as it turns out Susan also found a gentleman who definitely appreciated her curves.

In her first visit with us we explained to Susan that the appetite suppressant medications work extremely well at controlling your appetite and  we even  showed her little tricks to do if she did happen to be hungry especially late at night. Well Susan put her best effort into the program and now she is enjoying her honeymoon.

Here are a few of Susan’s favorite recipes from our weight loss program.

3 Weight Loss Recipes to Satisfy the Biggest Appetite by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

If you are one of our  medical weight loss patients you know that I am always trying new recipes that will make losing weight delicious, simple easy and fun. And if I may say so myself I have done a fantastic job in finding and experimenting with these 3 recipes. My favorite is the smoothie recipe because not only is this delicious but it totally satisfied my hunger. So in our efforts to have our weight loss patients lose 2 – 5 pounds a week here are the recipes:

diet doctors, Diet Doctors in Philadelphia, Medical Weight Loss, Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia and tagged medical weight loss, Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia, phentermine philadelphia, philadelphia, philadelphia diet doctors

 

Dr. Kenny’s Ultimate Weight Loss Smoothie: I just made this for breakfast this morning and it is one of the best tasting smoothies that I have ever had.

 

Ingredients:

  •  2 ounces of any non-dairy milk product like unsweetened almond milk –  hazelnut or coconut milk.
  •  2 ounces of heavy cream.
  • 1 scoop of our Solutions-4 protein powder that is sugar-free and is very low in carbohydrates.
  • 1 tablespoon of either almonds butter or melted coconut oil.
  • 1 handful of kale.
  •  2 tablespoons of flaxseeds.
  • 1/4 cup of blueberries –  optional. The blueberries are optional. I made the smoothie for my wife with blueberries because she likes things to be sweet tasting. But I made mine without the blueberries because I am trying to keep my blood sugar levels as low as possible.
  • Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until nice and smooth.
  • This is a fantastic recipe because it gives you good healthy protein, good healthy  omega-3 fats and a nice dose of healthy nutrients and antioxidants from the kale and blueberries.

Egg Drop Soup*

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 teaspoons of reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground white pepper
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1/2 cup frozen baby peas
  • 8 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 green onions sliced

Instructions:

In a large saucepan combine 5 cups of the broth, the soy sauce, garlic and pepper. Bring them to a boil. Thinly slice the carrots and add them to the broth. Add the peas to the broth and return to boiling. Stirring the cornstarch into the remaining 1 cup of broth, stir into soup. Reduce the heat and cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly, cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Place eggs in a liquid measuring, and use a fork to beat the eggs. While gently stirring the broth, pour the eggs in a thin stream into the soup. The eggs will perform fine shreds.

This is a delicious low carbohydrate recipe that gives you plenty of good healthy protein and healthy fat. In order to keep my body weight down and also to keep my blood sugar levels down I eat this at least once a day. And I actually prefer it better with out the baby peas and carrots. But that is just my personal taste; my children actually enjoy it with the carrots and baby peas. So that’s all up to your personal taste. Again this is an awesome recipe if you are trying to lose weight because it gives you a good amount of protein and good omega-3 fats. I hope you enjoy this recipe is much as I do. *This recipe was taken from the “ultimate diabetes cookbook” and this is a better homes and Gardens book.

Olive and Mushroom Frittata*

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 cup of sliced fresh cremini mushrooms
  • 2 cups of coarsely shredded fresh Swiss chard or spinach
  • 1 large shallot thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/8 teaspoon of salt 1/4 cup of thinly sliced pitted Kalamata olives
  •  1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Preheat the broiler. In  a broilerproof medium nonstick skillet  heat oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Then add the Swiss chard or spinach and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until the mushrooms and chart are tender, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, egg whites, rosemary, pepper and salt. Pour the egg mixture over vegetables in the skillet. Then cook over medium heat. Add the mixture sets  run a spatula around the edge of the skillet, lifting the egg mixture so the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until the egg mixture is almost set and the surface is just slightly moist. Sprinkle with the olives, and then add the cheese over top of everything. Broil for approximately 4 inches from the heat for about 2 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the center is set you should let this stand for 5 minutes. This makes 4 servings. *This recipe was taken from the “ultimate diabetes cookbook” and this is a better homes and Gardens book.

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

Part of  the reason why most patients in our medical weight loss program in Philadelphia and Bucks County are losing 2-5 5 pounds a week is because  we are always trying to give them delicious recipes that taste wonderful and also facilitate weight loss.  I would say probably 90% of the patients always tell us that they usually skip breakfast or they wind up having a bagel or jelly donut with a couple cups of coffee for breakfast. That old cliché that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is totally true. But even more true is the fact that the quality of the food that you eat for breakfast is the most important thing.

But everyone complains that they don’t have time to make a good quality fat burning breakfast first thing in the morning. But now I am happy to tell everyone that we have the perfect solution for this problem.

We have found a really tasty and super quality meal replacement shake. This shake would make an excellent breakfast that will give you tons of vital nutrients and enough protein in order to put your body into fat burning mode for the day. It comes in a variety of flavors like chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and even cream-sickle. Personally my favorite is the chocolate and also happens to be my wife’s favorite as well.

We’ve tried a multitude of different meal replacement shakes throughout the years and my wife told me that each and every one of them taste like cardboard. I am happy to say that this shake gets the approval from my wife because she thinks that it taste really good.

So if you are someone who usually skips breakfast because you don’t have enough time to make it, this is an excellent alternative for you.

The shake is ‘Soutions4’  and is only available from medical weight loss centers. It is made from quality products and just 2 scoops of this shake mixed with water will give you 20 grams of protein and only 180 calories and it is totally sugar free. It’s packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E, Biotin, calcium citrate, chromium, folic acid, magnesium and potassium.  It will also give you a good healthy dose of important amino acids that are necessary  in order to facilitate your body’s natural fat burning process.

The most amazing thing is that this shake gives you 20 grams of protein is totally sugar free and 2 scoops mixed with water is only 180 calories.

Not only is this shake awesome for breakfast but it also makes a great lunch as well.

In fact, lots of our patients are trying to lose weight a bit more quickly than usual because they are getting married or they have a class reunion or special function and in order to lose their weight quickly they will have a shake for breakfast and a shake for lunch and then for dinner they will have a good healthy meal. They may even have 1 or 2 snacks a day.

So if you are just looking for a quick healthy fat burning breakfast  this shake is for you. And if you are looking to lose weight a bit more quickly you could have the shake for both breakfast and luch.

So  in my opinion this is the greatest meal replacement / protein shake out there on the market today. And again this isn’t something that you can get in a vitamin shop  or the nutrition store because it’s only available in medical weight loss centers.

If you do not want to lose too much weight too quickly you can always add half a banana or a half cup strawberries or blueberries to the shake.

Throughout this website and in our YouTube channel you could use this meal replacement shake in every place that I have noted to use protein powder. And you can also use the shake for an awesome recovery drink after your workouts and exercise sessions.

If  you would like more information on our weight-loss shakes just give us a call at 215-821-7336.

If you need help with losing weight or if you have hit a plateau just call us  At 215-821-7336.

I hope you enjoy the shake as much as I do. Have a fantastic day.
