Best Ever Weight Loss Smoothie by Medical Weight Loss

Best ever weight loss smoothie recipe for burning fat, eliminating hunger and speeding up your metabolism and muscle recovery. Good morning everyone this is Dr. Kenny and in this article for today I and going to give you the recipe for my most favorite weight loss smoothie ever. In our medical weight loss program each and every day at least one patient will ask what are my favorite recipes that will give them fast weight loss but they taste good and do not taste like cardboard.

All of us know that in almost every other weight loss program diet food has no taste and if it does have any taste at all it usually taste like cardboard. But if you have looked through our website at all you already know that we have tons of delicious weight loss recipes throughout our site as part of our medical weight loss program. But today Lisa who was one of our superstar weight loss patients really pushed me to give her my most favorite recipe for a weight loss smoothie.

So here is the recipe I call it our Best Ever Weight Loss Smoothie and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and remove seeds
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 plum, pitted
  • 1/4 cup water

We are going to combine all of these ingredients into a blender and enjoy.

Grapefruit has been in diet food forever. When I was a young boy I remember my Mother eating grapefruit each and every day as part of her weight watchers weight loss program. Grapefruit has a combination of vitamin C and lots of fiber that not only help you burn fat but they keep you full throughout the day. And the banana, plum and spinach have plenty of potassium and other minerals that will actually help your muscles recuperate after a strenuous exercise routine. And let’s not forget that this smoothie is absolutely delicious and that the fruity taste makes this a perfect recipe for breakfast and even for a snack any time during the day.

The only thing I would avoid is having this later on in the evening because it contains so much fruit it does contain a good bit of sugar and I would like you to try to have this smoothie no later than 4 PM or 5 PM. That way your body will have enough time to burn off the sugar before you go to sleep at night.

This weight loss smoothie is especially good after an intense cardiovascular exercise routine. The potassium of vitamins and minerals will help your muscles recover much more quickly and the fruit will actually give you a burst of energy so that you will not feel as fatigued as you normally would after this type of exercise routine.

If you enjoy this recipe please take a look at the other recipes that I have in our website. The majority of them are low carbohydrate, low sugar and are conducive to losing weight and being healthy.

If you are having difficulty losing weight or have hit a plateau or would just like to discuss your weight loss plan with a health care professional give us a call at 215-821-7336.

Have a fantastic day.

Eggplant Parmigiana Low Carb Recipe by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

eggplant parmigianna low carb recipe medical weight loss philadelphia https://wakeupskinny.com/

eggplant parmigianna low carb recipe medical weight loss philadelphiahttps://wakeupskinny.com

Yes! Our Patients in our Philadelphia Medical weight loss program can eat Eggplant Parmigiana and still lose weight.  This why our patients tell us we are the best medical weight loss program in Philadelphia and Bucks County, PA. Because you can eat delicious food that is normally not considered diet food and still lose weight. My wife took my Great-Grandmother Virginia’s eggplant parm recipe and made it low carb. And I have to say it tastes better than my Great-Grandmother’s.

So If you miss eggplant parmigiana – well, now you can eat it again.  This is not a quick-to-fix meal, but if you can find the time to do it, you will be rewarded.  You can serve it with my wife’s Superb Rolls or Intense Garlic Bread Surprise..

Eggplant Parmigiana has only Carbs per serving 9.5 grams of carb.  Should serve 6.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-size eggplants, peeled (about 18 ounces)
  • 4 ounces shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese
  • 5 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces shredded Swiss cheese (or very thinly sliced)
  • 6 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine
  • ½ cup water
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ Teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup olive oil or coconut oil (more if needed)
  • 4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 stick), (optional)

Butter or oil a 2-quart baking pan or ovenproof casserole dish.  Cut the eggplant into ½-inch-thick slices.  (Read about eggplant on page 220.)  Set out the cheeses and have ready.  Mix the tomato paste with the wine and water; stir into a smooth sauce (you can do this in the blender).  Season with salt and pepper.

Set out two shallow bowls for the beaten eggs and the bread crumbs.  Mix the crumbs with garlic powder and salt.  Dip each slice of eggplant first in the eggs, then in the bread crumbs.  Coat well.  Put the coated slices on a platter.

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat.  Heat the olive oil.  Cook the eggplant slices in the hot oil until golden brown on each side.  Do not crowd the slices; you need to be able to turn them.  Preheat oven to 350ºF when you are about halfway through cooking the eggplant.  Drain eggplant on paper towels.  Transfer the cooked slices to a holding plate until all slices are cooked.  Note that these bread crumbs tend to darken faster than standard bread crumbs.  Reduce heat if needed to keep the slices light golden in color.

Build the eggplant parmigiana.  Put a layer of eggplant (about half) in the bottom of the casserole dish.  Sprinkle about half of each of the three cheeses over the eggplant slices, but reserve some Parmesan cheese (to taste) for topping the finished casserole.  Pour about half of the sauce over the cheeses.  Add the next layer of eggplant slices and repeat the process.  Pour the rest of the sauce on top.  Sprinkle the casserole with bread crumbs and 1 ounce Parmesan cheese.  Dot with butter.  Bake the casserole, uncovered, for about 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown.

This this is so delicious and it brings back memories of when I was a young boy enjoying a Sunday dinner with my entire family from my Mom and Dad, Brother and Sister, all of my cousins, Aunts Uncles and Grand parent and Great-Grand parents too.

So hopefully this will become a favorite of your family. And don;t forget the red and white checkered table cloth lol.

You could be a candidate for weight reduction surgical treatment if:

  • You’re an overweight grownup, especially if you have a weight-related condition, such as type 2 diabetes.
  • You understand the threats and benefits.
  • You prepare to adjust how you eat after the surgery.
    You’re dedicated to making way of living changes to keep the weight off.
    Teens typically do not get weight-loss surgery unless they’re exceptionally obese, with a body mass index (BMI) of a minimum of 35, and with a weight-related condition.

If you’re thinking of it, speak with your doctor about whether it’s an excellent choice for you.

4 Kinds of Weight-loss Surgical Treatment

When you get weight management surgery, your surgeon makes changes to your tummy or small intestine, or both. Right here are the four approaches cosmetic surgeons normally use:

Gastric Bypass: Your physician may call this “Roux-en-Y” gastric bypass, or RYGB. The specialist leaves just a very small part of the stomach (called the pouch). That pouch cannot hold a great deal of food, so you consume less. The food you consume bypasses the rest of the tummy, going straight from the pouch to your small intestine. This surgery can typically be done through several little incisions making use of a video camera to see within (laparoscope). Physicians can likewise perform a mini-gastric bypass, which is a comparable treatment likewise done through a laparoscope.

Adjustable Gastric Band: The surgeon puts a little band around the top of your belly. The band has a little balloon inside it that manages how tight or loose the band is. The band restricts just how much food can go into your tummy. This surgical treatment is done utilizing a laparascope.

Gastric Sleeve: This surgical treatment removes the majority of the tummy and leaves just a slim area of the upper part of the tummy, called a gastric sleeve. The surgery could also curb the appetite hormone ghrelin, so you eat less.

Duodenal Change: This is a surgery that is very complex that gets rid of the majority of the tummy and utilizes a gastric sleeve to bypass the majority of your small intestine. It limits how much you can eat. It also suggests your body does not get as much of a possibility to take in nutrients from your food, which might indicate you do not get enough of the vitamins and minerals you need.

With any type of weight reduction surgical treatment, you still need to concentrate on consuming a healthy diet plan and ending up being more active as part of your way of living.
Advantages of Weight management Surgical treatment:

After weight loss surgery, the majority of people reduce weight for 18-24 months. At that point, many individuals begin to gain back a few of their reduced weight, but couple of regain all of it.

If you had any clinical conditions connected to excessive weight, those normally improve after weight reduction surgery. Some conditions, such as diabetes, can get better rapidly. Others, such as high blood pressure, could take a little bit longer.

Risks and Adverse effects:

The most usual adverse effects consist of nausea, vomiting, bloating, diarrhea, excessive sweating, enhanced gas, and dizziness.

Severe side effects can include bleeding, infection, leakages from the locations where your stitches are, and blood clots in the legs that can transfer to the heart and lungs. Many people do not get any of these.

Long-lasting problems following weight-loss surgery depend on which type you have. One of the most usual issues, particularly with gastric bypass, is “dumping syndrome,” in which food moves too rapidly through the small intestine. Signs consist of queasiness, weak point, sweating, faintness, looseness of the bowels after eating, and not having the ability to consume sweets without feeling very weak. It can take place in as much as 50 % of people who had weight loss surgical treatment. Staying clear of high-sugar foods and changing them with high-fiber foods could help avoid it.

Gallstones can form when you lose a great deal of weight swiftly. To assist prevent them, your doctor could suggest taking extra bile salts for the very first 6 months after surgical treatment.

You’ll need to see to it you’re getting sufficient nutrients, too, specifically if the surgical treatment made it harder for your body to absorb nutrients from food.

Due to the fact that rapid weight loss and dietary deficiencies can harm a developing baby, physicians commonly advise females of childbearing age who get weight reduction surgical treatment to avoid pregnancy until their weight becomes stable.
