medical weight loss diet doctorsAre you frustrated of trying to lose weight and constantly failing? Are you concerned that your current weight loss program might not really be healthy or effective? Are you concerned that you’re just going to lose a little bit of weight and gain it all back? If your answered yes to any of these questions then our medical weight loss program would be perfect for you.

What is a medical weight loss program?
Unlike other weight loss programs like Nutri-system or Weight Watchers, medical weight loss programs our supervised by medical doctors and / or other healthcare professionals like physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, nutritionist and chiropractors.

Medically supervised weight loss programs provide continuous assistance and supervision so that you are sure that everything that you are doing is healthy and safe for you.

The medical doctors and their staff will evaluate you every month or so making sure that your blood pressure is fine, your heart rate is fine and your pulse and other body systems are working perfectly.

Every month when you are  reevaluated by the physicians and their staff, they may tweak your program to make sure that you continue losing weight in order to reach your weight loss goals.

There are many parts to a good medical weight loss program.
A Medical weight loss program begins with an evaluation by a medical doctor. In this examination he will determine the most appropriate weight loss program for you, that will give you maximum results and still be safe for you.

The medical doctor may give you FDA approved appetite suppressant weight loss medications that are extremely effective at decreasing your appetite and controlling your hunger.

Then most diet doctors will give you a vitamin b12 injection that will give you a burst of energy and boost your fat burning metabolism.

And of course you will speak to the doctor or nutritionist in regards to your diet program and even an exercise program if you are healthy enough to exercise.

Exercise programs do vary for each and every person. Some people just might walk 15 to 20 minutes a day when the beginning their exercise program because that is all that they are physically capable of doing.

The most safe and effective medical weight loss programs will enable you to lose anywhere from 2 – 5 pounds a week. This amount of weight loss is safe for you. This will keep you healthy. The whole entire weight loss program is about making little changes, lifestyle changes, that add up to huge changes over a period of time. So forget about losing 50 pounds in 30 days because those programs are definitely not healthy.

How To Jump Start Your Weight Loss If You’ve Hit A Plateau

medical-weight-loss-philadelphia-diet-doctor2.pngI had a wonderful conversation  with one of our superstar patients Kelly. Kelly has lost 31 pounds on our medical weight loss program. She is totally ecstatic because she has lost pounds and inches.

But she has recently hit a bit of a road block and her weight loss has slowed down a little bit. So we had a nice discussion about fixing this.

Her problem was is one that I see people do all of the time. So I decided to write this article in hopes of  helping every one that may be hittig a plateu in their weight loss.

The problem is what she is eating. She stopped following my food recommendations and she started doing things that she saw on the television.

Now the problem with following some of the advice that you see on these TV shows is that they might suggest that you eat Greek yogurt but they do not tell you what type or what kind of Greek yogurt. So most people run to the super market and buy Greek yogurt that is filled with sugar.

Now I totally love Greek yogurt and I do recommend that people eat organic Greek yogurt. But what most people do is they see Greek yogurt mentioned on TV and hear that it is good for them.  Then they go to the supermarket and they buy the Greek yogurt that is filled with sugar and excessive calories. And when they eat this yogurt that is filled with sugar they usually gain weight.

And this is exactly what Kelly did. She also started eating whole wheat bread instead of white bread. I agree that whole wheat and rye bread is much better than just plain old white bread. But this does not mean that you can have 6 slices of whole wheat or rye bread a day.  

Even though something is considered to be good for you; you still have to follow are diet recommendations if you want to continue losing weight. So my point is even though something is stated to be good for you it doesn’t mean that you eat an unlimited amount of that particular food.

If you are one of my medical weight loss patients and are reading this article you know that I believe in eating a little bit of everything.

And on our medical weight loss program you can eat almost anything that you want just as long as you follow our guidelines.

To quote my mother “Too much of a good thing is not good”. ( I am 50 years young and quoting my mother lol.)

If you continue to follow my recommendations for portions, qantity size, etc… You should be fine and should be continuing to lose weight.

If you our having any problems with losing weight or have hit a plateau please call me and we can chat. And the two of us together and determine what you need to do to get your weight loss back on track.

Please call me at 215- 821-7336.

Thank you and I hope you have a fantastic day.

How To Choose a Weight Loss Diet Doctor in Philadelphia and Bucks County PA

Fast weight loss seems to be difficult for most people especially for those who exercise six or seven days a week or if they are following one of the latest fad diet plans and still have not seen any real weight loss. So the question is how do you lose your weight and achieve your goals without having to try the latest and greatest diet or exercise plans?

Our medical weight loss clinic might be the answer to your needs. We offer safe and effective medical weight loss programs that will have you eating real food that is actually tasty. No one hates the cardboard tasting diet foods more than I do. Our goal is to help you achieve your weight loss goals and finally be able to keep the weight off long-term.

The difference between our medical weight loss program  when compared to other programs is that you will actually see a medical physician who will evaluate you and together will determine the best plan for you. And we do mean that we will determine the plan together with you because if you are not agreeable with the plan that we have set out for you, . there is no way that you are going to do it.

So after your initial consultation and evaluation we will develop the plan of course taking into consideration your goals, your current physical and health condition and taking into account any other health issues that you might have.

We have found that the easiest way for our patients to lose weight and have the most success is to start the program with our weight loss tablet appetite suppressant medications. The primary medication that we use has been around for many, many years. And in our experience has been the safest and most effective weight loss medication.

These medications will help keep your hunger and appetite in check that way you are able to make the right food choices. The problem that we find is that most people are hungry and when they are hungry they eat the first thing in the fastest thing that they can get their hands on. Sadly often times this is a cake are a candy bar. And foods such as these have been no nutritional value. They only give your body an overloaded burst of sugar which can increase your insulin levels and when your insulin levels are increased anything that you are eating during that time period is going to be stored as fat.

That is why our patients using our weight loss tablets are very successful. Their appetite is under control and they follow the food recommendations that we have given them.  In a way this is a type of behavioral modification therapy. We have you eating foods at certain times throughout the course of the day and this helps keep your appetite at bay and also keeps your insulin level throughout the day as well. This will also help in keeping your hormones balance. Hormones are especially important for females.

This is especially true if you are approaching or are in the menopause phases of your life. And from our personal experience with our male patients men over the age of 40 have almost as much is a difficult time with weight loss as do females. It seems that it really doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman over the age of 40 everyone seems to be having issues with hormones these days. And with all of the current advancements in nutrition it is possible to help people with hormonal issues just by changing their diet. It can be that easy.

We do not believe in very low calorie diets. Now I do acknowledge that there are many weight loss clinics and diet doctors in the Philadelphia and Bucks County regions that have their patients doing very low calorie diets. We have seen patients from other weight loss clinics and these people have been trying to maintain a 500 calorie a day diet. We do not believe in 500 cal a day diets. Your body needs food. Your body needs calories from good healthy nutrient dense food. In fact most of our patients cannot believe that on our medically supervised weight loss program they are actually eating more food and losing weight. Compared to when they were starving themselves and not losing weight.

So to recap everything when you come into our weight loss program you are going to see a medical doctor. You are going to have a complete evaluation and consultation and together we will decide the best program for you. Normally patients do start on our appetite suppressant weight loss medication program that also includes an energy boosting vitamin B12 shot as well as a custom diet and exercise program.
