Yes, that’s right. With our weight loss program you get to eat more to lose more weight. Losing weight with our medical weight loss program does not mean that you have to give up all of the foods that you love.

You just have to eat sensibly and have a game plan. For most of the patients in our Philadelphia weight loss program and our Bucks County weight loss program this means that they can enjoy most of the foods that they love.

They just have to pay attention to portion size and make the right decisions. Most of our weight loss plans allow you to eat almost everything in moderation. So, this means that you are going to eat lots of good food and enjoy yourself.

Starvation type diets usually just set you up to fail eventually and that is why we do not believe in starvation diets. If you are interested in learning more about our medical weight loss program please call Lisa and scheduled your free weight loss consultation. Call 215-821-7336 and Lisa will be glad to schedule you.

Now, when I said most of our patients get to eat everything in moderation I was totally serious. Especially if they are making the recipes that I put on this website each and every week. On this site you will find recipes for low carbohydrate and low sugar cheesecake, low-calorie lasagna, sugar-free ice cream, and even low carbohydrate and sugar free dessert recipes like tiramisu, cannolis and Panna Cotta.

Today I am going to give you the recipes for low carbohydrate bagels and my favorite scrambled eggs fiesta. These are to low carbohydrate recipes that go extremely well together. If you have a both of these together for breakfast you will be totally amazed that diet food could possibly taste this good.

Low Carbohydrate Bagels*
Ingredients:
1/2 cup of our vanilla gluten-free, soy free, sugar free and zero carbohydrate protein powder
coconut flour – 2 TBS
baking powder – 1 TSP
Sea salt – one quarter TSP
xanthan gum – 1/2 TSP
melted coconut oil – 1/4 cup
large eggs – 10
you may also add 2 – TSP of any type of slavery extract like vanilla or blueberry if you like.

Let’s begin by preheating the oven to 325°F. Then spray to 6 cavity donut pans with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl mix together the xanthan gum in a coconut oil until it splendid nicely together and very smooth. And in another bowl stir together the baking powder, vanilla protein powder, salt and coconut flour. After this bowl is combined nicely together add the extract, eggs and coconut oil and stir this together and then combine the ingredients of all the bowls together. Mix everything together until it forms a nice doughey texture. Then all you have to do is spoon this into your doughnut pans and bake for about 18 – 22 minutes, or just until the top becomes a light golden brown. I usually stir these in a Tupperware container that is airtight in the refrigerator and they normally stay for about 1 week like this. But I have put them in the freezer for as long as three weeks and they were perfectly fine. This recipe makes 12 bagels and each of them has 119 cal, 2 g of carbohydrates, 8.9 g of fat and 7.8 g of protein.

Scrambled Eggs Fiesta*
Ingredients:
1 finely diced cherry tomato
chopped fresh chives – 2 TBS
6 – beaten large eggs
butter – 2 TBS
Sea salt – 1/2 TSP
black pepper – 1/2 TSP
sour cream – 2 TBS
bacon – 4 ounces cooked and chopped into small pieces

we are going to start this phenomenal recipe by melting the butter in a small pan over medium – low heat and then in a bowl mix together the chives, pepper, salt, diced tomato and eggs. Then pour this into your saucepan and allow it to cook for several minutes of course stirring it and keeping everything mixing nicely. When you’re eggs are finished cooking take them off of the flame and add the sour cream stirring everything together well. Finally mix in the bacon and serve this while it’s nice and warm. This recipe makes two servings each of them has about 36 g of fat, 4 g of carbohydrates, 480 cal and almost 1 gram of fiber.

So there you have it. Two great recipes that are good for you and taste good. I hope you enjoy these recipes is much as I do and I invite you to share them with your family and friends.

The FastDiet Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, and Live Longer with the Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting – The Fast Diet is a best-selling book that has recently been published in the U.S., promises that you can eat whatever you want, but still lose weight, and even live longer as long as you practice intermittent fasting”. It sounds too good to be true so is it just a scam to sell books or does it really work?
 
The book outlines a 5 and 2 approach. You can eat whatever you want for 5 days of the week and then you fast on two non-consecutive days – you can only eat 500 calories a day for women and 600 calories a day for men.
 
This is not the only way to lose weight with intermittent fasting. You can also do a daily intermittent fast where you eat for a certain amount of time per day and then let your body rest and digest for the remaining hours. This is an easier weight to get all of the benefits of intermittent fasting while you are still eating food every day. I will discuss this method a bit later.
 
Sara Richter, B.Sc., Gillean Osterday, M.Sc., RD and Katie Coles, M.Sc, RD have reviewed this book and this is what they have to say.
 
In their book, Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer do a fine job building a case for intermittent fasting as a method for better weight-control, improved health, and even longer life. For example, they review the research produced by nutritionist Krista Varady, Ph.D., of University
of Illinois at Chicago, who was the principal investigator for UIC’s study evaluating Isagenix products. They also discuss the findings of Valter Longo, Ph.D., and Mark Mattson, Ph.D., that show calorie restriction and
intermittent fasting in rodents can potentially protect the brain and increase lifespan.
 
However, the weight loss plan has many critics and I will tell you why.
 
Eating whatever you want (and as much as you want) has its consequences. One of the biggest negatives is the endorsement to eat without restraint for five days of the week. The book does propose some healthy eating guidelines, but with the main attraction being “Eat anything you want!”, there’s likelihood that many people will live by those words. That kind of promotion is bound to be harmful as people are given permission to grossly overeat and to eat the wrong types of foods as often as possible — think greasy hamburgers, French fries, and sugary sodas. Even two days of intermittent fasting can’t undo a lifetime of making unhealthy choices like these.
 
Another problem is potential muscle loss. When the body is taking in fewer calories, it goes into what’s called a catabolic state (meaning “breakdown”; the opposite is anabolic, which means “build-up”). Catabolism is fine for the breakdown of fat, but if calorie-deficient bouts are not followed up with the right type of muscle-building protein in the right amount, the result can be breakdown of muscle. Studies have found that during weight loss, a diet higher in quality protein preserves muscle mass more than a diet higher in carbohydrate (2). Research has also found that protein from dairy, such as whey, may be the superior protein for increased fat loss and muscle retention during weight loss (3).
 
Then, there’s the problem of getting proper complete nutrition. Most people already eat too much, yet they do not receive adequate amounts of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) from the foods that they eat for optimal health. Mainly, this is because too many people don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables or may not know how to properly choose foods for adequate amounts of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals, etc…).
 
Even those who think they know what foods to eat in combination for better health haven’t fared well in achieving weight loss and improved health. One study compared weight loss groups consuming either fresh, healthy foods for the majority of their diet or nutrient-rich meal replacement shakes and found that meal replacement shakes resulted in more weight loss, better improvement to health biomarkers, and better adherence based on the convenience of the shakes (4).
 
How can you take advantage of the benefits of intermittent fasting without the drawbacks of the 5 and 2 diet approach that include eating too much, losing muscle, and not getting enough vitamins and minerals? We have the perfect program that takes the guesswork out of intermittent fasting and how to do it right.
 
We have two types of programs.
 
Our first intermittent fasting program allows you to eat food every day of the week.
 
The second programs gives you 2 days of decreased calories.
 
What you get with our program is intermittent fasting combined with additional nutritional, antioxidant, and detoxification support in Cleanse Days, which are part of a fully guided system that won’t leave you eating everything in sight one day followed by wanting to eat your arm off the next. Our system means moderate calorie control on Shake Days and appropriate fasting with nutritional support on Cleanse Days.
 
Our system, unlike theFast Diet, is also backed by clinical data showing that it leads to healthy weight loss, fat loss (without the muscle loss, especially if exercise is included), and better cardiovascular health. The end result is curbed food cravings, successful weight loss and maintenance, preservation of muscle mass, and finally, a long-term
lifestyle that will keep you healthier than ever before.
 
This all being said, unless you have some serious health issues the majority of our clients lose a tremendous amount of weight just following our Nutritional plan. Just for convenience people use our meal replacement shakes. They also make a great snack.
