Doctor Loses Over 30 lbs With Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

Results of Our Medical Weight Loss Program

Results of Our Medical Weight Loss Program

In our medical weight loss program most of our patients lose 2 – 5 pounds per week. They lose all this weight by eating delicious tasty food. And on our weight-loss program you eat real food that you would normally buy at the supermarket. You do not have to spend hundreds of dollars on pre-packaged meals like many other weight-loss programs.

In fact using our own medical weight loss program I have lost quite a bit of weight myself. You see I suffered a significant back injury a while back from a car accident. And these injuries caused me to suffer pain all day long and severely limited my physical activity.

Suffice to say I just got fatter and fatter.

Finally after being diagnosed with Diabetes, I realized that I had to make lots of changes and get myself together. So in the beginning of this year, 2015, I made the promise to myself and my wife that I would follow our medical weight loss program exactly as I teach all of our wonderful patients.

And I am happy to say that I have lost quite a bit of weight following our medical weight loss program. It makes me even happier to fit into clothing that has been in the back of my closet for years.

Because of my Diabetes I decided to follow a program that really controlled the sugar in my diet.  This is the same program that I give all of our Diabetic patients to do.

Not only did I lose weight, but now at 3 months into the program my blood sugar levels are normal.

I definitely appreciated all of the recipes and menus that we provide our weight loss patients because they made my losing weight easy – I just had to follow the plan – and the food and recipes we give our weight loss patients are delicious.  So losing weight was simple, delicious and easy. All I had to do was follow the plan.

The Phentermine works really well at controlling hunger and cravings so it’s easy to follow the plan when you are never really hungry.

One thing I did make sure was that my first meal of the day consisted of delicious protein. This pushed my body into fat burning mode and not fat storing mode.

It’s funny that in our weight loss program we make you eat to lose weight… While other weight loss programs have you starve yourself to lose weight.

So here are 8 yummy recipes that I enjoyed on my weight loss journey. I have them labeled as breakfast but you can eat them anytime of the day for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

These recipes are taken from the book The 100: Count Only Sugar Calories Diet Book by Jorge Cruise. It’s a great book and has lots of low sugar recipes. I definitely recommend you read it.

Lose 2-5 lbs a Week Eating Cake by Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Diet Doctors

#LowCarRecipes

#LowCarRecipes

Yes it is possible to lose 2 – 5 pounds a week in our medical weight loss program while eating delicious cakes and other goodies like I have pictured here in this article.

In our medical weight loss program we believe we give you the best appetite suppressant medications and weight loss pills that will help decrease your appetite and get your hunger and cravings under control.

Lots of our patients tell us that they were never hungry and that losing weight on our program was the simplest and easiest weight loss program that they have ever done.

They also have told us that our weight loss program was not only simple and easy but it was the most fun because we gave them lots of recipes for delicious foods like a chocolate bomb weight loss shake, sugar-free blueberry ice cream, fat burning lemonade, espresso and ricotta cheese desserts and a multitude of of recipes for entrées, appetizers, desserts and even snacks.

One of my favorite recipes is for cheesecake that is sugar-free. And because yesterday was my birthday my wife made me my favorite sugar-free blueberry cheesecake. If you are already one of our patients you know that a few months ago I was diagnosed as having type II diabetes and that I have been trying to follow a sugar-free diet as much as humanly possible. And this sugar-free blueberry cheesecake recipe fits right into my new sugar-free diet plan because it has no extra sugar in it.

(If you are presently not one of our patients you can read all about my personal story about being diagnosed with diabetes in an another article that I have on this website titled “Confessions of a medical weight loss Dr.”)

And even though I am a weight loss doctor  I actually ate quite a few slices of this delicious cheesecake yesterday and when I weighed myself this morning I actually weighed a half pound less.

So I know you can’t wait to try this recipe for yourself so here it is:

Sugar Free Blueberry Cheesecake*:

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of stevia
  • ¾ cup of xylitol
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • frozen blueberries (if desired)

Directions:

Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Mix in the sour cream, eggs, stevia, xylitol and vanilla. If you want a crust: Wrap foil around the bottom of a 10 inch spring form pan. Butter the bottom of the spring form pan and sprinkle ground walnuts or pecans on top. Pour the cream cheese mixture on top. Place the cheesecake in an oven safe dish that is larger than 10 inches. Pour hot water in outer dish so it reaches half way up around cheesecake. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes until center is nearly set.

After removing it from the oven you can open the bag of blueberries and place them over top of the cheesecake. You can use blueberries or any other berry of your choice.

Then cool for 15 minutes. Scrape the sides of pan with a knife and release spring. Cool 30 minutes. Remove spring and refrigerate for approximately 4 hours. You can also make it in small ramekin dishes with no crust for individual servings. Make sure to reduce the baking time if you reduce the size of your pan.

*This recipe was taken from one of my my mentors Dr. Daniel Pompa from his website.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. And from the picture that you see posted above you can see that I really did enjoy this cake LOL. But it was my birthday so I was allowed to cheat a little bit more than usual.
