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.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Real Mac & Cheese – Low Carbohydrate Weight Loss Recipe

medical weight loss philadlephia

medical weight loss philadlephia

Hi everyone Dr. Kenny here and we just made this recipe for lunch and it was so delicious I had to stop everything that I was doing and put this recipe up for you.

It’s a low-carb version of macaroni and cheese.

This is a recipe that I really love because it gives you the great taste of cheese and the texture of macaroni.

But the best thing that I love about this recipe is that it does not give you all of the carbohydrates and all of the sugar and it does not spike my blood sugar like normal mac & cheese does. So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think of it the next time I see you in the office.

And if you are not one of our weight loss patients and you would like to come in for a free weight loss consultation just call us at 215-821-7336 and schedule your free consultation now.

So here is the recipe and I call it:

*I Can’t Believe It’s Not Real Mac & Cheese – Low Carbohydrate Recipe*

The ingredients are:

  • ¼ cup of unsalted butter
  • 4 cups of thinly sliced cabbage or two 7 ounce packages of miracle noodles. Just make sure that you cook the noodles and drain them.
  • Cream cheese – 3 tablespoons
  • ¼ cup of vegetable broth
  • shredded sharp cheddar cheese – 4 ounces
  • grated Parmesan cheese – ¼ cup
  • Sea salt – to taste
  • black pepper – to taste

We begin by putting the butter and the sliced cabbage into a saucepan and set this over medium heat until the cabbage becomes tender, this usually takes about 13 – 15 minutes. Make sure that you are stirring this so it does not burn. Then just removed from the heat and set this on the side. If you are using miracle noodles instead of the sliced cabbage just place them in a sauté pan with butter to warm them up for a minute or so, and then put them on the side.

Now to prepare our cheese sauce just put the butter in a nice sized saucepan and heat over medium heat until the butter is melted. Next stir in the broth and the cream cheese and continue to stir this until it becomes thickened. This normally takes about two minutes. Then reduce to low heat then add the cheddar cheese and the Parmesan cheese. Continue stirring this while you are cooking it until the cheese is melted then add the salt and the pepper to taste. Then just remove this cheese sauce from the heat and pour over your cabbage and mix everything nicely to combine it. If you like, you can top this with salsa to give it a little bit of kick.

This recipe makes 6 servings each of them has 240 calories, 23 g of fat, 7 g of protein and 1.5 g of carbohydrates and 0 g of fiber.

I hope you really enjoy this recipe and if you do please share it with your family and friends. Especially if they have to keep track of their blood sugar levels during the day like I do.

Hello everyone Dr. Kenny here; as weight loss Doctors in Philadelphia our main goals are to help you lose weight safely and to improve your health. This is why in addition to giving you the best weight loss pills, diet pills and appetite suppressant medications, we give you a sensible eating plan to help you lose weight.

A nice side effect of people losing weight is that lots of other health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes and thyroid problems seem to improve. This is why we spend so much time with you reviewing what you should be eating and explaining why. The reasons why people lose weight with our medical weight loss programs is because of the high quality appetite suppressant medications we use and because of the education we give our patients. Our patients know what, why and when they should be eating and this is the key to their success.

This is why we score so highly in Medical weight loss clinic reviews.

Mia, who is one of our superstar weight loss patients asked me if we had some really good recipes for a butter cream and recipe for a quick breakfast for those mornings when there is never enough time to prepare a breakfast.

So here are 2 recipes. One is for a pralines and vanilla butter cream and the other is a nice chia seed pudding that can be eaten for breakfast or any other time of the day.

This is one of my most favorite low carb recipes. It is a low-carb version of a pralines and vanilla buttercream. This recipe makes about 4 servings and each of them has approximately 2 g of carbohydrates per serving.

  • Pralines and Vanilla Buttercream
  • Ingredients:
  • 1/2 pound of unsalted butter
  • vanilla extract – 2 teaspoons
  • soy sauce – 1 – 2 teaspoons
  • to make this recipe a little bit more sweet you can add 1 – 2 teaspoons of a sugar substitute such as Stevia or swerve and even erythritol.

Directions:

First we are going to take 2 ounces of the butter and heat it in a small saucepan until it foams up a bit and you will see golden brown speckles. Just make sure they you do not burn the butter. Just before you start to see the golden brown speckles add your soy sauce and mix everything well. The addition of the soy sauce to the recipe gives it a very unique delicious flavor. Plus it also adds to the beautiful coloring of our cream.

The next step is to pour the butter and soy sauce combination into a pans and blend in the rest of the butter a little at a time, and add your sweetener to this as well and continue to blend – mix until all of the butter is blended and has nice fluffy peaks. You can either do this by hand or if you have a blender it makes the process much more easy. When this is finished just add the vanilla extract and once again stir everything together.

This recipe is so tasty that sometimes I will have just this by itself as a dessert or as a snack. What you can also add it over top of pancakes, waffles and almost anything that you could think of. You can also add ginger, cinnamon, cocoa and even some fruit to this and enjoy it as a snack.

If you are one of our weight loss patients you know that most mornings my breakfast is a nice cup of coffee with some half-and-half or heavy cream and a packet Stevia with an added teaspoon of coconut butter. But there are some mornings that I just need to eat something a little bit more than a cup of coffee. Personally I really like to have a low-carb type of pudding for a quick and easy breakfast. So one or two nights a week we will make this pudding and then just let it sit in the refrigerator overnight for whenever I am really hungry in the morning.

This is really one of the easiest recipes that we make, And it only takes about 5 minutes to prepare. Now remember you should let this refrigerate for 4 hours or more; that’s why we like to make it at night.

So here is the recipe for my Chia pudding:

This recipe makes one serving and it has approximately 5 g of carbohydrates.

  • Ingredients:
  • three-quarter cup of unsweetened coconut milk
  • Chia seeds – 2 tablespoons
  • vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and stir it well. When it’s totally mixed just pour in into a jar and let it sit in your refrigerator preferably overnight. Just make sure that you refrigerate this for at least four hours otherwise it will be to liquid for you to enjoy. The next morning just open up the refrigerator and you can spoon the pudding into a bowl. I will usually add a little bit more of the coconut milk and just eat it that way or sometimes I will just add a little bit of fruit. Also I do enjoy adding a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder, ginger or cinnamon to this in the morning.

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.

It looks like it takes so much time to make but it really does not take that much time at all. This recipe is going to make six servings and each of them has approximately 100 cal, 10.2 g of fat, 2.5 g of protein 0.5 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.   Just be aware that this recipe does call for 1 teaspoon of Kahlúa extract or rum extract.

  • heavy cream – 2 cups
  • mascarpone cheese – 4 ounces

  • 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.
