Recipes to Burn Fat and Look Great by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

Hello everyone Dr. Kenny here, if you are one of our medical weight loss patients you know that my mantra is “Losing Weight Should be Simple, Easy, Delicious and Fun. So with that being said here are a few more weight loss recipes that are definitely delicious and should help you achieve your weight loss goals of losing 2 – 5 pounds per week. 

In my recent post of recipes on our website I have been giving you lots of weight loss recipes for weight loss smoothies and shakes in addition to regular appetizers, entrées, desserts and even snacks. The reason I have been posting so many smoothie recipes is because the majority of our patients are asking for quick and easy weight loss smoothie recipes because they do not have enough time for a regular breakfast first thing in the morning.

It just seems that everyone is always in a rush nowadays and there is never enough time to take care of yourself.

Most of the men I know are literally working 24/7 and most of the females that I know are also working 24/7 in addition to taking care of their children, getting them ready for school in the morning and then they head out to work or to take care of whatever responsibilities they have to attend to for the day.

So to me it seems that females have an even more difficult time taking care of themselves as compared to men. Now if you are man please do not be upset with me for saying this. I am a man, so this gives me the privilege to make such an observation. Honestly though, this is how it is in my house.

I do try to help with household chores and with the children but the majority of my time is spent in the office taking care of our wonderful patients. While my wife is taking care of the children, getting our youngest off to school in the morning and giving him a good healthy breakfast (because we know that young minds need good healthy food to fuel both their bodies and their brains to do well in school); in addition to this she also takes care of our three dogs and her parents. Not only does she do all of this but she also manages our offices and actually answers the phone and schedules the majority of appointments in our office. So when you call the office and if Elyse answers the phone you now know that she is my wife.

My wife is an amazing woman and she gave up her career in Pharmacy in order to stay at home and raise our three children and help us build our wonderful practice. So with all of this being said I know that women have a multitude of responsibilities and are not always capable of spending the time to take care of themselves. And that is why our weight loss program is designed to be simple, easy, delicious and fun and does not require you to exercise a multitude of hours each and every week.

Sorry! Sometimes I have a tendency to run on a bit LOL. But I am just very appreciative for the woman in my life and all the other woman in the world who are usually the backbone of their family and as such society.

Now! Here are the delicious weight loss recipes.

This is going to be a smoothie that is designed primarily for burning fat.

Medical Weight Loss Tips by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

medical weight loss bucks county philadelphia paOften times achieving your weight loss goal can be very very difficult. So much so that over the course of time you may just have had enough and throw the towel into the ring. I find that this happens usually when people do not have a solid plan for losing their weight. In this article I’m going to review a few steps to assist you in achieving your weight loss goals.

Tip 1: Forget about dieting. In order to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life you have to make lifestyle changes.  Sadly I see in my office all of the time people go up and down losing weight and gaining weight because they go on fad diets. People come to me and tell me that they have tried juice diets, fruit diets, high protein diets, etc. and the problem is that they usually gain all of the way back after losing it. So this is why you really do have to make lifestyle changes. Just take one day at a time and try to follow your plan as best as you can. If you make a mistake it’s no big deal. Because this is about making changes that will give you a healthier life and make you skinnier for the rest of your life.

Tip 2: make a plan on how you intend to lose the weight and determie how much weight you really need to lose. You have to have a specific plan if you want to lose weight. Without a plan or a playbook even the best football teams do not succeed.

Tip 3: do not weigh yourself each and every day. Your weight actually does fluctuate throughout the course of the day. Depending on how much liquid you drink and the amount of food you eat during the day you can gain as much as 5 pounds just from all of the food and beverages that you consumed during the course of the day. 

Of course the next morning you will go back to your normal body weight if you followed your weight loss plan. Especially with females depending on the time of the month your body weight can vary as much as 7 pounds depending on the time of the month. I usually recommend that you weigh yourself once a week but if you are the type of person that needs to weigh yourself constantly I would say weigh yourself once every other day or every three days.

Tip 4: make sure you are drinking at least 64 ounces of water each and every day. Drinking water decreases your appetite and helps flush toxins and dead cells out of your body. I also suggest that you should drink at least three glasses of ice water every day. This creates a thermogenic effect because your body has to raise its temperature in order to return your body to a normal temperature. Drinking water also increases your overall health.

Tip 5: do not starve yourself. You have to eat small frequent meals throughout the day. I usually suggest that most people eat breakfast within an hour of waking up and that there breakfast consists of good healthy protein, good healthy fats like in avocado or flaxseed or Chia seeds or flax oil were avocados and even a little bit of carbohydrates healthy carbohydrates. And I am just going to remind you that a sugar jelly donut is not a healthy carbohydrate. After breakfast it is a good idea to make sure that you eat some type of protein every 3 – 4 hours.

Tip 6: do not torture yourself. Let’s be real here there are going to be days when you really have cravings for a certain type of food that may not be totally conducive to your weight loss program. I have found that if you are having uncontrollable urges to eat a type of food let’s say for example chocolate that it is always best to have a small portion of that food. So if you are craving chocolate treat yourself to a really good chocolate. Break off a small piece of the chocolate and savor it. Do not gobble it down like you have never eaten before. Let the flavor of the chocolate tantalize your taste buds and do not feel guilty about enjoying it. Please just be sure that you do not eat a pound of chocolate. Just give yourself a small portion as a treat.

Tip 7: snack frequently. Make sure that you have good healthy treats to snack on throughout the course of the day. These include cheesesteaks, almonds, cashews, and my favorite vegetables. Vegetables are the greatest snack that you can have throughout the day to make you healthy and make you skinny.

Tip 8: get a partner. It’s always easiest to accomplish your weight loss goals when you were doing it with a buddy. In our medical weight loss office it is quite common for us to treat family members, coming in at the same time, spouses coming in to lose weight together, coworkers and friends. It’s always a good idea to have someone that you could lean on for support when you need it and hold you accountable to your daily routines that you establish to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

I hope you found these weight loss tips helpful.

Best Beginners Exercises for Weight Loss and Fat Burning

Hi everyone this is Dr. Kenny.

When you're just starting out on your fat burning and weight loss exercise program the best type of exercises to do are low intensity exercise cardiovascular exercises like walking or bike riding.

Your goal is to perform 60 consecutive minutes of either walking or riding a bike with your target heart rate between 60 and 75% of your maximum heart rate. The reason why you have to perform this type of exercise for 60 straight minutes is because during the first 30 minutes of the exercise you will just be burning the sugar that is in your blood stream and making your heart healthy. From minute 31 on you will be burning fat and losing weight.

Now to figure out what your target heart rate is you would just subtract your age from 220 and that will give you your maximum heart rate. Then you just times your maximum heart rate time 60%, 65%, 70 and 75%.

Initially just keeping a target heart rate between 60 and 65% for maximal heart rate is enough to get you fat burning and losing weight then each time you have a plateau in your weight loss you would just increase it to the next level.

So as example I'm going to calculate the target heart rates for a 30-year-old person.

220-30 = 190 Maximum Heart Rate

190 × 60% = 114

190 × 65% = 123.5

190 × 70% = 133

190 × 75% = 142.5

So if you are 30 years old when you first start with this program you would like to keep your heart rate between 114 and 123 and this should burn fat off of your body and cause you to easily lose weight.

When you have weight loss plateau you would like to increase the intensity and keep your heart rate between 123 and 133.

At your next weight loss plateau try to keep your heart rate between 133 and 142.

Please remember that your goal is to do this exercise routine for 60 consecutive minutes.

But if you are not able to do 60 straight minutes of cardiovascular exercise just do what you can.

Remember Common Sense Dictates in any type of exercise program.

So just do what you can and gradually increase the amount of time that you can exercise.

This is usually the best and safest way to start your weight loss exercise program but it is always recommended that you check with your healthcare provider to make sure that this program is right for you.

If you need help with your program please call me at 215-821-7336.

Medical Weight Loss What Makes US Different

Best Medical Weight Loss Program in Philadelphia

In this article I will review why I think – and our Patients think we are the most complete medical weight loss program in Philadelphia, Bucks County, Delaware and Jersey.
Difference 1:
First of all we only use the highest quality medications and supplements in our program. Many of our patients have told us that the medications that we use to control their appetite and hunger seem to be more effective as compared to the  medications that they were given by other medical weight loss centers.
 
Difference 2:
Our patients tell us that our program is Less expensive than other medical weight loss programs in the Philadelphia, Bucks County, Jersey and Delaware regions.
 
Difference 3:
You see a Certified and licensed medical health care practitioner on each and every visit. You will usually see the Medical Doctor on your visits and on some occasions you may be seen by our certified and licensed Physician's Assistant. Our Physician"s Assistants received their degrees from the Pennsylvania College of Osteopathic Medicine which is one of the finest medical schools in the Philadelphia region and the country. Today you will find Physician's Assistants in most Medical offices taking care of patients under the supervision of a Medical Doctor.
 
Difference 4:
We spend time with you going over a proper diet and nutrition program. Many of our patients tell us that at other weight-loss clinics in Philadelphia they are just handed a sheet of paper with nothing on it but meat, chicken, fish and vegetables and told that this is the diet that they are supposed to follow. They are also told to drink nothing but water.
 
So basically they are told to follow an Atkins like type of diet.
 
Now most of us have tried the Atkins diet in the past and we all have lost weight on the Atkins diet. But the problem is as soon as you eat your first piece of bread, your first piece of chocolate or your first piece of anything that is not a protein or vegetable . You will gain the weight you lost back.
 
Personally there have been times when I myself have lost 30 pounds doing the Atkins diet But as soon as I  ate my first slice of pizza I started to gain the weight back and Actually gained back 50 pounds. So, I gained back the 30 pounds that I lost plus an additional 20 pounds.
 
I don't  know about you but I find it extremely difficult not to have at least a little bit of starchy carbohydrates during the day.
 
So with our program we allow you to eat starchy carbohydrates – just in moderation. In fact, we allow you to eat almost everything in moderation.
 
On our weight-loss program people cannot believe the Normal everyday foods that they can eat and still lose weight. The key to the weight loss success of our program is that we tell you when you should start eating how often you should eat and when to stop eating.
 
We make it simple and easy by giving you a blueprint to reach your weight loss goals.
 
Difference 5:
We give you an exercise program that is custom designed for you. We take into consideration your present health and physical condition when we design your program. Some patients might just walk a little bit. Other patients that are more physically fit may do a more varied type of exercise routine. We have patients that are working out three days a week for only 15 minutes on each of these days and they are losing weight.
 
Difference 6:
We are always just a phone call and/or an email away. We try to answer phone calls promptly but if we are on the phone with other patients your call may go to voice mail but please leave a message because we constantly check our voice mail and return calls almost immediately.
 
What we are about:
This program is not about losing 100 pounds in 30 days. It is about making small lifestyle changes that add up to big results and safe weight loss over a period of time.
 
It is not our goal to make you a size 0.
 
But it is our goal to make you happy with yourself. It is our goal to make you healthy and make you the "Best You" that you could possibly be.

Stop The Insane Crazy Exercises & Workouts – Learn Simple & Easy Weight Loss Exercises

Stop the crazy work outs!
 
Hello everyone this is Dr. Kenny and I am pleading with you to please stop the insanity and stop injuring yourself with these crazy high intensity workouts that promise you a tremendous amount of weight loss and Beach body in 30 days or less. Now I am telling you that it is possible to lose a significant amount of weight in 30 days but I am also telling you that you do not have to kill yourself in order to lose the weight. It is possible to lose weight safely and sensibly without hurting yourself and that's what our program is about.
 
The reason I am writing this article is because each and every day when I am working with our weight loss patients and I am customizing a simple and easy diet and exercise program for them more often than not they tell me that they had injured themselves either while exercising with a DVD program that they bought after seeing an infomercial on television or working with an inexperienced trainer who had the best intentions but pushed them to the extreme and they hurt themselves.
 
 In order to lose weight:
  • You do not have to exercise like an insane person performing super high intensity exercises each and every day.
  • You do not have to run 10 miles each and every day.
  • You do not have to starve yourself.
  • You do not have to have an expensive gym membership.
  • You do not have to spend a fortune on personal trainers.
  • You do know have to have fancy expensive exercise equipment.
  • You do not have to spend money on the latest and greatest exercise DVDs.
  • You do not have to push yourself to the point where you actually cause yourself harm by injuring yourself.
  • You do not have to spend a fortune on weight loss supplements and fat burners and all that other stuff that you see promoted on television and sold online and in stores that are in our local malls.
 
It's sad, but people come into our medical weight loss center and tell me all of the wonderful supplements that they are taking and the advice that they are getting from the salespeople working at the nutritional supplement stores. The problem is that they are spending quite a bit of money at the stores in the hopes of buying a product that will help them lose weight but the sad fact is that are still overweight.
 
Their body is still over weight but their pockets are much lighter.
 
Their pockets are much later because they are spending money on inferior nutritional supplements.
 
 Sadly, the nutritional company can sell a product that only contains a 1 to 3 percent of the nutritional product that is on the label of the bottle and the rest of the you are taking can be just filler products.
 
Just because I am curious I ask them what type of graduate degree does the person selling this product have. Most of the time I am told that the person that sold them the nutritional supplement and gave them all this fantastic advice is a high school or college kid and that they had a tremendous physique.
 
Well, I have nothing against high school or college kids because I have children that are in high school and in college. But let me tell you when you are in high school and in college your body's hormones are at their peak. And this means that during those high school and college years you can almost eat anything and just do a little bit of exercise and still have a great body.
 
Sadly as we get older it gets a bit more difficult to eat whatever we want and still have a tremendous Beach body physique. At the age of 49 my body doesn't recover from the crazy exercise routines that I did when I was a much younger man.
 
Past the age of 30 our body's chemistry and hormonal levels decrease. This means that we do not heal as quickly as we did when we were in our teens and 20s. So this means when you do all of those crazy super high intensity exercises you are just going to hurt herself if you are over 30 years old.
 
 But I am happy to tell you that you can still lose weight and be in great shape if you just exercise and eat smart.
 
In our medical weight loss center we help people that have to lose hundreds of pounds as well as people that only have to lose 30 to 50 pounds.
 
So it's just common sense, at least to me, that a person who has 100 pounds to lose is not going to do the same exercise program as a person that has to lose 50 pounds.
 
The fact is that the majority of our patients start with just a simple walking program and they lose a tremendous amount of weight and they don't hurt themselves.
 
So please if you are thinking of spending money on one of those crazy exercise DVDs, don't!
