How I Plan to Lose 6 lbs in 1 Week by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

weightlossphiladelphia 19103In our weight-loss program it’s always our goal to help our patients lose weight safely and as quickly as possible. But we are all human and sometimes we may not follow our nutrition plan as perfectly as we should. Especially when we go on vacation.

And this is exactly what happened to me over these past 2 weeks when my wife and I talk a lovely Caribbean cruise.  

Over the course of our 11 night cruise I gained 6 pounds.  And I know exactly where those 6 pounds came from. They came from the so-called sugar-free desserts that I enjoyed each and every night with my dinner and from the sugar-free lemon cookies that I snacked on throughout the day. Oh, and my wife just reminded me about the amazing baked Alaska dessert that we enjoyed in one of the specialty restaurants where we celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary.

But honestly I have to admit that the baked Alaska was so delicious that it was worth each and every pound. But now that we are back in the real world I am getting back to my normal eating plan. And in about 5 or 6 days I plan get rid of those extra pounds I gained; and get back to my normal body weight.

The only problem is that from my indulging in the deserts for 11 straight nights  My sweet tooth grew back. So to have the best of both worlds –  meaning to satisfy my sweet tooth and help me lose those 6 pounds quickly I have 4 great recipes that are sweet, rich and  two of them are even chocolatey. And I’m going to share them with you now.

Cocoa Puff Fluff

  • 4 ounces of ricotta cheese
  • 1 ounce of heavy whipped cream
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder unsweetened
  • a sweetener like Stevia to your desired taste
  • Combine all of the ingredients together and mix thoroughly

Low-Carb Chocolate Mousse

  • 16 ounces of cold heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of sweetener like Stevia
  • 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips, unsweetened

Directions:  Let’s start by first melting the chocolate chips and when they are melted just put them on the side for a little while. Then we are going to whip the heavy cream until it thickens nicely. And now we add the sweetener, I like Stevia, and the melted chocolate and mix this together for approximately another 30 seconds or so. And there you have a delicious chocolate mousse that is low in carbs and sugar.

Super-Rich Chocolate Mousse – Low-Carb

  • 2 ounces of unsalted grass fed butter
  • 2 ounces of full fat cream cheese – allow it to soften
  • 3 ounces of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon of Stevia

Directions: combine the butter cream cheese and heavy cream in a mixer and blend until everything is nice and smooth then add the unsweetened cocoa powder and the Stevia and mix until everything is combined nicely. This is a very rich and creamy and one of my favorites.

Ultra – Rich Cheesecake Mousse

  • 8 ounces of full fat cream cheese
  • 4 ounces of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • Sweetener: like Stevia or vanilla extract or any type of sugar-free syrup.

Directions:  allow the  cream cheese to soften and then combined with the heavy cream and sour cream in a mixing bowl and blend until everything is combined smoothly. Then add your sweetener slowly while continuing to mix. Then just Enjoy!

And please let’s not forget my good old reliable dessert that is totally sugar-free and this is sugar-free Jell-O.  If you have the time you could always make the jell-o yourself it’s super cheap and  easy. You just have to boil water add the Jell-O powder to it mix in some cold water stir everything together nicely and then put it in the refrigerator and let everything harden.  

But if you’re short on time you can always bite at the supermarket premade. The thing that I like about the pre-made Jell-O is that I could always take it with me from home to the office and have it as a snack at lunch and even carry it from one office to another office and have it as another snack at dinner time. So if you have the time definitely make it yourself because it’s very economical and if you don’t have time just by pre-made at the supermarket.

And if I am needing something a bit more crunchy I will have a few carrots with that as well. So this takes care of my need to eat something crunchy and sweet at the same time.

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do. It’s always our goal to help our patients lose weight by giving them delicious recipes, diet plans in addition to the best diet – weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications.

Oprah Winfrey and Weight Watchers By Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

 Unless you have been living under a rock, without a television or a smart-phone you have probably seen one of Oprah Winfrey’s commercials endorsing weight watchers.  And in my opinion, it’s about time! And that’s because our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Program is similar to Weight Watchers, except that our program is a medically supervised weight loss program and we give you a diet plan Plus we give you weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications that help eliminate your hunger and cravings and a vitamin B12 injection. 

When you come in you are:

  • Evaluated by a M.D. 
  • Given weight-loss pills – appetite suppressant medications to help control your hunger and cravings.
  • Given a vitamin B12 injection that will help boost your energy levels.
  • Given a diet plan that has been designed specifically for you.  

And we have support materials like this website and our YouTube channel where we are constantly giving you lots of delicious recipes that range from: smoothies, appetizers, entrées, desserts etc. 

We now have over 380 recipe videos on youtube. In our weight loss program you see a medical doctor that will evaluate you and make sure that you are doing the right type of program to help you lose weight. 

And in order to design the most perfect weight loss nutrition plan for you we also have you fill out a metabolism profile questionnaire and take into consideration your age, overall health and level of physical activity. Your plan is designed specifically for you.  

Because of our medical training we realize that for you to lose weight it’s not just about counting calories, points and portion control.  All of the other things that I mentioned above like your age, level of physical fitness  and any health issues that you might have  all need to be taken into consideration in order for you to effectively lose weight and keep it off.

Most people, (even most other weight loss programs) do not realize that people with certain type of health issues like diabetes, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause, perimenopause, postmenopause all require a very specific type of diet program if they want to be successful at losing weight.  So really that’s another major benefit of coming to our medically supervised prescription weight loss program.

No one understands this better than me, because I am a diabetic.  And as a diabetic there are lots of foods, that my wife can eat, but I can’t eat them, because they will just make me fat and make my diabetes worse.

So I am happy that Oprah is finally doing a weight loss program that allows her to eat real food and is similar to our program except that we are Doctors and give our patients weight loss pills, vitamin B12 shots, etc…

In fact, we have lots of patients that come to us either while they are doing or after they have tried programs like Weight Watchers, Nutri-system, Jenny Craig, Dr. Oz’s rapid weight loss plan, Medifast or any type of weight loss or diet plan. 

And the reason they come to us is because the appetite suppressant medications make it very easy for them to lose weight. 

The weight loss pills help control your appetite, cravings and binging and enable you to make sensible decisions about what you are eating.  

And often-times because of our medical training  when someone comes to us while they are doing another weight loss program and they are not totally happy with the results we usually tweak that program and then BAM  they start losing weight again.

So in conclusion with our local weight loss program you are: 

  • Evaluated by a Medical Doctor
  • Given Weight Loss Pills Appetite Suppressant Diet Medications
  • Given a Vitamin B12 Injection
  • Given a Specific Diet Nutrition Plan
  • Given an Exercise Plan if You are Able To Exercise

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that we do not charge you a new member fee or a new patient fee like so many other weight loss programs now do.  

We do not have any contracts either. 

We are here for you as long as you need us, and that’s it.  

Some people might see us once or twice over a month or two and others might see us a bit longer, it all depends on how much weight you need to lose.

And if you are doing a weight loss program like Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Dr. Oz’s rapid weight loss plan, Medifast or any type of weight loss or diet plan it’s usually perfectly fine for you to work with us and even take the weight loss pills and appetite suppressant medications.  

Of course when you see the medical doctor he will only give you weight loss pills if he believes they will be safe and effective for you.
