From a Size 18 Divorcee to a Sexy Curvy Size 12/14 Newlywed

weightlossphiladelphiadietdoctorsCongratulations to Susan who dropped from a size 18 to a curvaceous size 12/14. First let me say that Susan gave us permission to tell her story and she actually insisted we tell her story in hopes of helping people in her same situation.

In our medical weight loss program people come to us to help them lose weight for so many different reasons. Some people may have to lose weight because of health reasons while others are looking to lose weight for some type of family or school reunion and then some are just looking to lose weight to fit into a bathing suit before their vacation.  

And for some losing weight can be a triumphant personal victory and such is the case with Susan. You see Susan was a happily married 57-year-old  woman with 3 children.  But as it turns out Susan’s husband was not quite as happy as she was and he left her for a much younger woman.

Financially Susan was left secure by her husband because he was a very successful businessman but emotionally she was totally devastated.  It took quite a bit of time for Susan’s friends to finally convince her to start dating, to get her life back.

And being good friends they set her up on lots of blind dates but sadly there was never a 2nd date. Finally Susan had enough and she decided it was time to do something about her situation.

She decided to find love again.

Susan’s first visit with us was not easy. She gave us every reason why the program was not going to work for her.  She also told us that she was never a skinny girl. She was never a size 4, she was never a size 6. But just like we tell all of our patients not everyone is meant to be a size 2, not everyone is meant to be a size 4 or even a size 10. You just have to be happy with yourself and be the best possible you that you could be. I explained to Susan that in our program we take into consideration your body type. And we try to help you appreciate the body that God gave you.

If you are a curvy lady be thankful for the curves that God gave you and if you are a skinny lady be thankful for the body that God gave you. Our program is all about appreciating yourself. 

While we do help people that must lose lots of weight we also help ladies (and men) that just need to  lose a tummy fat, thigh fat and maybe some arm fat and then just tone everything up with walking and maybe even some resistance training just using rubber bands that they sell in the stores that are inexpensive. So again our program is designed to help you be the best you. Our goal is to help you appreciate who you are and what you are. And as it turns out Susan also found a gentleman who definitely appreciated her curves.

In her first visit with us we explained to Susan that the appetite suppressant medications work extremely well at controlling your appetite and  we even  showed her little tricks to do if she did happen to be hungry especially late at night. Well Susan put her best effort into the program and now she is enjoying her honeymoon.

Here are a few of Susan’s favorite recipes from our weight loss program.

Michelle Loses 50 lbs with Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

weight loss philadelphiaCongratulations to Michelle for losing 50 pounds over the past few months with our medical weight-loss program. We are especially proud of Michelle because not only is she going through menopause but she also has a hypothyroid condition as well.

Michelle stuck to the weight-loss plan that we gave her and she only walked about three or four days a week. She said that she really enjoyed the variety of foods and all of the recipes that we give our patients. Every week we post another 2-5 recipes here on this website, on our YouTube channel and even our Google plus page.

So in our continued effort of helping our patients lose 3-5 lbs a week; here are a few more tasty weight-loss recipes.

When I spoke with Michelle today she told me that her two favorite recipes are the cookie dough recipe and low carb pizza with the works. So in celebration of her tremendous weight loss success here are the cookie dough recipe and the pizza with the works recipe.

Low Carb Cookie Dough

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 tablespoons of stevia, truvia or splenda
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 3-4 squares of sugar-free chocolate broken into pieces
  • 1-2 tablespoons  baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons of ground almonds

Start by placing the butter in a large bowl and put this in the microwave until the butter is melted. Then take the bowl out of the microwave. But please make sure that you do not burn yourself because the bowl will probably be hot. Be sure to use a towel or oven mittens when removing the bowl from the microwave. Next add all of the other ingredients into the bowl with the melted butter and mix everything nicely until it’s nice and smooth. If you like, you can then place this in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds to 60 seconds and this will melt the chocolate and give it a gooey consistency. After the chocolate is melted nicely carefully take it out of the microwave let it cool down a little bit and you can enjoy. But make sure that it’s cooled down because you don’t want to burn yourself, your tongue or lips.

You can also make little ice cream treats with this recipe. By rolling the mixture into little balls and place them in the refrigerator or freezer.

Low Carb Pizza With the Works

Who doesn’t love pizza? But for most of us Pizza is totally off-limits because – as much as we love Pizza, it loves us back. Because it stays with us as body fat. But with this Pizza recipe you can enjoy eating pizza and not worry about getting fat.

  • Ingredients
  • 8 ounces of Mozzarella Cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

To make the pizza dough… Coat a Frying-pan with one or two teaspoons of coconut oil. If you are using a solid form of coconut oil allow it to liquefy.  And then in a separate bowl whisk your eggs, then add the cheese and mix everything together nicely. Now we just add the egg cheese mixture into the frying pan and we cooked this over a medium heat until it’s semi-firm. At this point place the pan with the cheese and egg mixture into the oven and bake for approximately 5 to 8 minutes at 375°. And then remove this from the oven. Be sure to wear oven mittens so that you do not burn yourself.

This is just the beginning now let’s get started with the pizza toppings. We’re going totaling Italian here, so we are going to top our pizza with sausage, pepperoni, peppers, cheese and marinara sauce.

Here is everything that we need: 1-3 ounces of sausage, 8-11 slices of pepperoni, 3-4 tablespoons of chopped green peppers, a half cup any cheese or cheese mixture/blends that you like and finally a cup of marinara sauce.

We are going to start by adding to another Frying-pan the sausage and let this cook until it’s nice and brown. After approximately 10-11 minutes add the peppers and let this cook for another 2 to 4 minutes until everything is cooked nicely. Just make sure that your sausage is thoroughly cooked. Now take the marinara sauce and spread the sauce over your pizza dough. Next we add the cheese, pepperoni and finally the pepper and sausage mixture. There you have it! A fantastic pizza with the works just like you would get in South Philly.

I hope you enjoy these recipes.
