Hi everyone Dr. Kenny here. If you are a member of our Philadelphia and Bucks County weight loss programs you already know that we use the highest quality FDA approved appetite suppressant medications, weight loss pills and diet pills.

And you also know that we spend an enormous amount of time with our patients reviewing the proper nutrition and meal plans that will help you safely lose weight.

As part of our medical weight loss program we also will review your target weight loss goal and let you know if your target body weight is healthy for you. I guess because of social media and marketing campaigns that appear on the television, in magazines and on the Internet people are coming to us wanting to lose an amount of weight that would not be medically healthy for them. Not every woman is meant to be a size 0 or size 2 or even a size 4.

And please remember that in our program we use real prescription medications that must be prescribed by a licensed medical physician, nurse practitioner or certified physician assistant. You cannot purchase these type of medications at your local Nutrition Store. And because these are prescription medications certain criteria must be met, like BMI, waist measurement, etc. for you to be able to take these weight loss medications.

That is why we offer the free consultations, to determine if you are a candidate for our program. When you first come in you will be evaluated by the healthcare provider and then they will their clinical skills and expertise and make the recommendations as to what would be the best weight loss program for you. This includes the appropriate weight loss medications, best nutrition – diet meal plan and what would be the best target weight loss goal for you. And in addition to all of this we give you lots of fantastic recipes to help you lose your weight. We have recipes that we had every week to our website that are usually low-calorie recipes and/or low sugar low carbohydrate recipes.

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.

Here are 2 more great recipes under 200 calories to help you lose weight.

 

 

Low-Carb Pancakes and Syrup*

This is another one of my favorite recipes. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare everything and then of course you have to add the cooking time for cooking each of the pancakes. This recipe makes 12 pancakes and one serving size is considered three pancakes. Try to make the pancakes the size of about 5 inches.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 large eggs – separate the yellow from the white
  • protein powder – 2 tablespoons of either egg white protein or any other type of protein powder that you like. Just make sure that it does not contain a lot of sugar and carbohydrates. That’s why I prefer egg white protein because it’s very low in carbs and in sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract – you could really use any flavor that you prefer
  • Stevia or swerve – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil or organic respite voter – we use this to coat our pan
  • 1/2 cup of our delicious brown butter syrup – for pouring over top of our pancakes

We begin by whipping the egg whites in a bowl for several minutes until they become very stiff. After that blend in the yolks, vanilla extract, Stevia and your protein powder.

Heat the coconut oil or the unsalted butter over top a medium – high heat then when it’s hot take 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it into your pan. (When my wife does this the pancakes always seem to be in perfect shape but for some reason when I do it I need to use a utensil to make it into an almost perfect circle.)

Then just fry the pancake until it’s a golden brown on both sides. This usually takes about 2 minutes per side. After that remove the pancake from the heat and set it aside on a plate and cover it to keep it nice and warm. Then just repeat this process until there is no more batter left. I usually need to add a bit more butter or coconut oil between cooking each pancake.

When you have cooked all of the batter just place the pancakes on individual serving plates and pour the syrup over top. Remember a serving size is three pancakes and each serving has approximately 175 cal, 13 g of fat, 8 g of protein, 0.6 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

Brown Butter Syrup*

This is the recipe for the syrup to pour over top of your pancakes or anything else that  you would like to use syrup with. It only takes about one minute to mix everything together and then it takes about another five minutes for it to cook. This recipe makes one and a half cups of syrup and usually 2 tablespoons are considered a serving size. Each serving has approximately 75 cal, 8.4 g of fat, 0.2 g of protein 0.2 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

  • Ingredients:
  • unsalted butter – 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup of swerve – you can use any others sugar substitute for this recipe, but I prefer to use swerve. It tastes just like real sugar and it doesn’t have that aftertaste that most other products have. Also,  if you consume a large quantity of some of the other sugar substitutes like xylitol   you may experience some stomach upset (and possibly diarrhea).
  • Cream cheese – 1 ounce
  • unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk – 1/2 cup
  • 1 teaspoon of maple extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

First we take a large saucepan and heat the butter over high heat, stirring it every few seconds.  The butter will start to foam up towards the top of the pan and it will then fall back down. You will start to see quite a few brown flecks and that is when you should remove it from the heat.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the swerve until it’s nice and smooth.  At this point you can mix in the cream cheese and stir until it’s smooth and then stir in the almond milk, maple extract and the salt.

Now set the pan aside and let it cool down a bit and then pour the mixture into a glass jar. It can stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Now, because of the ingredients, it will become thick while it is in the refrigerator. So when you are ready to use it you can just reheat it in a microwave or by placing it in a pan and heating it over a flame on your stove-top.

How To Eat Your Cake and Lose Weight Too by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadelphia

In our medical weight loss program our philosophy is that eating a little bit of everything in moderation is the key to successfully losing weight and keeping it off.

When people try to stop eating a certain type of food, often times they will lose weight quickly but when they start eating that particular food again they gain all of the weight back. That’s why in our weight loss program we allow you to eat almost every type of food group and we teach you what the best choices are from each food group.

The appetite suppressant medications do a wonderful job of decreasing your appetite but you still have to eat and make the proper food choices. That is why we spend so much time reviewing good healthy nutrition with you and it’s also the reason why we are constantly updating this website with great recipes for all different types of food.

And today, I’m going to give you a great tasting low carbohydrate recipe for cinnamon swirl cheesecake. This recipe will give you a cake that you can cut into 12 servings. Each serving will have 12 g of protein, 6 g of carbohydrates, 250 cal and 1.2 g of fiber.

*Cheese Cake Recipe

Please use a 8 inch spring form pan for this recipe.

  • Ingredients:
    For the crust:
    Unsalted butter – 3 1/2 tablespoons
    Chopped unsweetened baking chocolate – 1 1/2 ounces
    Powdered erythritol – 1/3 cup
    Stevia – 1 teaspoon
    1 large egg – beaten
    Ground cinnamon – 2 teaspoons
    2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    Sea salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • For the filling:
    Softened cream cheese – 32 ounces
    Stevia – 1 teaspoon
    unsweetened almond milk – 1/2 cup
    2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon of almond extract
    1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
    3 large eggs
  • For the cinnamon swirl:
    Unsalted butter – 6 tablespoons
    Powdered erythritol – 1/2 cup
    1/2 teaspoon of Stevia
    2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    Ground cinnamon – 1 tablespoon
    Sea salt – 1/4 teaspoon

First preheat the oven to 325°F and spray and 8 inch spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray and line it with baking parchment paper.

To make the crust first brown the butter by putting it in a saucepan and heat over medium – high heat, stirring frequently. When the butter finally starts to phone and has brown flex remove it from the heat and let it cool down for approximately 11 minutes. After it has cooled add the chocolate to the butter, stirring it continuously.

Once the chocolate is melted stir in the erythritol and Stevia. When everything is mixed nicely let it cool in the refrigerator. Once this has cooled down in the refrigerator you can add the egg, salt, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Mix everything together nicely and then pour this mixture onto the parchment paper that is lining the bottom of your springform pan. Then spread this evenly over the entire bottom.

To make the filling and able mixed together the cream cheese, Stevia, almond milk, erythritol, vanilla extract, almond extract and the salt until everything is mixed together nicely. You can use a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer for this process. Next add the eggs one by one while you are mixing the batter on low speed. When you have added and blended in all three of the eggs pour half of this mixture into your springform pan. You are pouring this over top of the crust.

To make the cinnamon swirl heat the butter in a saucepan and start continuously until the butter starts to phone and those beautiful brown flex appeared. Then stir in the vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt, Stevia and erythritol. When everything is combined nicely with remove it from the heat and let it cool down a bit.

Next spoon half of the cinnamon swirl on top of the cheesecake mixture that is already in the spring form pan. Now take a nice and twirl in this cinnamon swirl through the cheesecake batter to give it that marble look. Make sure that you go deep into the cheesecake batter because you want the cinnamon swirl to spread all the way to the bottom of the cake.

Then over that pour in the rest of your cheesecake mixture and cover with the cinnamon swirl topping once again and then mix in with a knife for that marble effect.

Now you have to set up a water bath. Wrapped heavy-duty aluminum foil call you around the bottom and along the sides of the springform pan. We do this to prevent the water from leaking into our cake. Then place the cheesecake in any type of baking pan with sides and place the pans into your oven. Then pour hot water into your roasting pan until it comes halfway up the sides of your springform pan.

Let this speak for approximately 50 minutes or for as long as it takes until the center is almost set. Then remove it from the oven and let it cool down completely before removing it from the pan. Then let it sit in your refrigerator for at least 5 hours before serving. We have made this recipe quite a few times and I have eaten it before letting it cool down for five hours in the refrigerator and I have also eating it after we have let it refrigerate overnight. And I can tell you from my personal experience that it tastes much better when you let it refrigerate overnight.

I hope you enjoy this recipe is much as I do. At least once a week we update this site with new delicious recipes that are going to be low-calorie and/or low-carb – low sugar. So please visit the site at least once a week. If you need help with your health and wellness or even losing weight call us and schedule your free consultation at 215-821-7336.

  • Begin by mixing in a saucepan the cooled espresso coffee in the gelatin. Allow a time to mix together and soften. This should normally take about one minute. Next heat the gelatin and espresso mixture over top low heat until the gelatin has totally dissolved. Then add the heavy cream, mascarpone cheese and the vanilla bean seeds to the saucepan. Heat this over medium heat for approximately one minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in your rum extract or Kahlúa extract and the salt. Next take six glasses or ramekins and divide the mixture between them. Let this cool to room temperature and then cover them and let them chill for at least four hours. I prefer to let this chill overnight. When you are ready to serve just sprinkle over top the unsweetened cocoa powder or you could even use sugar-free chocolate syrup if you prefer.

Mix in chicken and garlic, cook for 5 minutes, or until no longer pink. Now add in tomatoes, zucchini, broth, taco seasoning, and salt. Cover and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and mix into rice. Cover and sit for 5 minutes while you preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Fill each tortilla with about 1/2 cup of the filling. Fold each side as you would wrap a package, then roll it up. With the seam side faced down in a baking dish, sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

*Steak Fajitas

  • Worcestershire sauce- ½ cup
  • Cider vinegar- ½ cup
  • Ground cumin- ½ tsp

To begin use a plastic food-storage bag and combine Worcestershire, vinegar, cumin, garlic, black pepper and salt. Add steak to marinate, refrigerate for 2 hours. Heat grill or oven broiler to hot heat. Drain marinade into a 2 cup measuring cup, then add chili powder and oil. Grill or broil steak for 12-15 minutes, only turning once. Place meat on cutting board, let stand 10 minutes. While that sits, add marinade to a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it sizzles. Next add in peppers and onions, cook 3 minutes. Now add mushrooms and zucchini, cook 6 minutes. Cut steak into thin slices cutting along grain. Add steak to skillet mixture and toss around to coat steak. Now you’re able to divide filling equally into tortillas. Enjoy!

Now for our secret recipes… one of my biggest cravings is bread.

So here are 2 really good recipes, one is for a low-carb bread, and two slices has a total of only .4 g of carbohydrates and another recipe for an almost 0 carb recipe for Pitas.

Low-Carb Bread

This is a really fantastic recipe especially if you are on a low carbohydrate type of diet and miss enjoying a nice slice of bread during the course of your day. This is one of my favorite recipes because it has  almost no carbohydrates in it at all. This recipe will make a loaf of bread that is made in a 9 x 5″ loaf pan. You should be able to slice the loaf of bread into 14 slices. And one serving size is equal to two slices. Each serving has 70 cal, 4.3 g of fat, .4 g of carbohydrates, 7.5 g of protein and 0 g of fiber.

The ingredients are:

  • 6 large eggs – please separate the white from the yellow
  • egg white protein powder – about 1/4 cup or you could also use unflavored whey protein powder approximately 1/2 cup
  • you can also add any types of seasoning white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder – anything that you like

Of course you should preheat your oven to 325°F and then grease a 9 x 5″ loaf pan. After that you should whip your egg white’s for several minutes. You want to make sure that you whip them extremely well, because this is a secret to making this bread turn out so perfectly. Then mix in the protein powder and any seasoning that you like. When that is mixed nicely just add your egg yolks and mix everything nicely together and continue  to whip to keep the egg whites nice and high and it will become dough like in texture. Then just place the  dough in the pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes, just until it gets nice and brown. Then remove form the  oven and let it cool before you slice it. Again you want to slice it so that you will have 14 slices.

Low-Carb Pitas

This is another great recipe and this one only has  .6 g of carbohydrates per serving, 64 cal, 4.5 fat grams, 5.2 protein grams and .5 fiber grams. This recipe should make 6 servings.

Ingredients:

  • large eggs – 3, just make sure to separate the white from the yellow
  • cream of tartar – 1/2 teaspoon
  • unflavored egg white protein – 1/4 cup or 1/4 cup of unflavored way protein
  • Coconut oil – 1 tablespoon, I use this to grease the pan
  • any types of spice, if you are going to be eating this with on this you can always add a bit of curry powder or something like that

In this recipe you also want to put the egg whites quite a bit for several minutes and then blend in the yolks, protein powder, cream of tartar and any seasonings that you may be adding to the recipe. Then take your pan and heat the coconut oil over a medium – high heat and when it gets nice and hot spring out a 3 inch circle of dough in the pan. Let this fry for approximately 4 – 5 minutes, again until it’s nice and golden brown and then flip and fry the other side for another – 4 – 5 minutes. Of course depending on the  intensity of your flame it could be plus or -1 – 2 minutes. When it’s done remove from the heat and repeat this until everything is cooked.
