medical weight loss in philadelphia diet weight loss doctors

Hi everyone Dr. Kenny here. If you are a member of our Philadelphia and Bucks County weight loss programs you already know that we use the highest quality FDA approved appetite suppressant medications, weight loss pills and diet pills.

And you also know that we spend an enormous amount of time with our patients reviewing the proper nutrition and meal plans that will help you safely lose weight.

If you are not a member of our weight loss center I invite you to call and schedule your free consultation, call us at 215-821-7336. Ask for Lisa and she will be glad to schedule your free weight loss consultation.

As part of our medical weight loss program we also will review your target weight loss goal and let you know if your target body weight is healthy for you. I guess because of social media and marketing campaigns that appear on the television, in magazines and on the Internet people are coming to us wanting to lose an amount of weight that would not be medically healthy for them. Not every woman is meant to be a size 0 or size 2 or even a size 4.

And please remember that in our program we use real prescription medications that must be prescribed by a licensed medical physician, nurse practitioner or certified physician assistant. You cannot purchase these type of medications at your local Nutrition Store. And because these are prescription medications certain criteria must be met, like BMI, waist measurement, etc. for you to be able to take these weight loss medications.

That is why we offer the free consultations, to determine if you are a candidate for our program. When you first come in you will be evaluated by the healthcare provider and then they will their clinical skills and expertise and make the recommendations as to what would be the best weight loss program for you. This includes the appropriate weight loss medications, best nutrition – diet meal plan and what would be the best target weight loss goal for you. And in addition to all of this we give you lots of fantastic recipes to help you lose your weight. We have recipes that we had every week to our website that are usually low-calorie recipes and/or low sugar low carbohydrate recipes.

So with all of this being said, finally here are a few of my secret recipes that taste great and will help you get that sleek physique.
