weight loss phila snacks

With our medical weight loss program most of our patients tell us that they are never really hungry because our appetite suppressant medications/weight loss pills work extremely well at curbing their appetite and cravings. But they do appreciate that they are able to eat delicious meals, snacks, treats and smoothies and still lose weight.

In fact the weight loss medications and all of our delicious recipes have made my personal weight loss from 247 pounds down to 185 pounds very easy and enjoyable. Personally I find it difficult to tell people that I am on a diet when I’m able to eat chocolate Chip Brownies and cheesecake and still lose weight LOL.

As weight loss doctors we consider it our responsibility to give you, in our opinion, the best weight loss and appetite suppressant medications but we also will provide you with recipes for delicious and tasty food that will help you lose weight more quickly. You will find these recipes on this website and also on our YouTube channel “Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia”. I have just uploaded our 275th recipe video to our YouTube channel. So not only do we give our patients what we consider the best weight loss medications possible but we also give you tons of recipes that will help you lose weight more quickly.

If you are like me and like to snack these recipes are definitely for you. In this article I’m going to give you the recipes for some amazing weight loss smoothies that will get rid of your appetite and make you feel totally satisfied , I will also give you recipes for low-carb – low sugar brownies, cakes and cheesecake. I am even going to add to recipes for piecrust that are both low in carbohydrates and low in sugar.

one scoop of solutions for chocolate protein powder or a quarter cup of egg white protein powder (optional ingredients include drops of liquid Stevia to taste.)

1 tablespoon of xylitol
5 – 10 drops of liquid Stevia

Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat using a hand whisk. Then add the melted coconut oil or butter, xylitol, Stevia, cacao powder, coconut flour and almond flour, cinnamon, cream of tartar and baking soda. Mix everything well and pour the mixture into small ramekins. (break the square of dark chocolate into very tiny pieces and gently place them on top of the chocolate batter) then microwave for 60 – 90 seconds and you have a delicious low-carb chocolate muffin. Instead of using a microwave you can also bake them in an oven that is preheated 360°F for about 15 minutes. You can even top the muffin with full fat sour cream or whipped heavy cream. This recipe should make one muffin.
