In our weight loss program to use FDA approved appetite suppressant medications, weight-loss pills and diet pills, vitamin B12  injection therapy and we coach our patients in the proper nutrition diet plan and of course exercises well.   Over the past years, the FDA has approved many more medications for the treatment of obesity and people being overweight. Weight-loss medications may include Phentermine, Adipex, Phendimetrazine, Bontril, Belviq  and Saxenda.  

All of these medications work in different ways to help eliminate appetite, hunger and cravings in order to assist people in losing weight and achieving a healthy body weight. Of course along with the weight loss medications a person needs to follow a sensible eating plan and an exercise program even if they just walk a few times a week. All of these things work synergistically and helping a patient lose weight and also hopefully improve their overall health and wellness.

That’s why we  spend quite a bit of time reviewing nutrition and exercise with patients. And of course every week or so we like to update this blog with great recipes that range from smoothies, appetizers, entrées and even desserts.

Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctors Philly Ketosis Fat Bomb Smoothie

If you are looking for Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctors call us for your free consultation. Call 215-821-7336 for more information and to schedule your free consultation. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and in celebration of our Philadelphia Eagles I am giving you a super green smoothie recipe that is loaded with healthy nutrients, good healthy fats and of course it’s the color green.

This Super Bowl Sunday is special to me for 2 reasons; one is that our Eagles are in it and even more important is that I married my wife 30 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday. Hopefully the Eagles can give us a Super Bowl victory as a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift.

This recipe will give you a very large smoothie that you can put in a travel mug and drink it all day for continuous energy. Or you can divide it between 2 servings. This recipe is low carb and has lots of good healthy fat. I like to make this early in the morning and take it with me to the office. I keep it in the refrigerator and drink it in between patients.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Avocado
  • 2 handful of sprouts
  • 2 handfuls of greens
  • 2 tbsp organic cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Optional stevia to taste

Combine all of the ingredients into a blender, blend and enjoy. The Smoothie will have a very thick and creamy consistency.

The avocados and full fat coconut milk have lots of good healthy fat that should help you eliminate your appetite. In another article on this blog that I posted some time ago I wrote that there is a section in the colon that is called the brake and that when good healthy fats pass over this section the body releases hormones that should help control your appetite for as much as 3 hours. That’s why this smoothie should be part of your diet program.

During the week when I am in the office seeing patients I have this smoothie for one or even two of my meals. In today’s world it seems that most of us do not have time to sit down and enjoy a good healthy meal. So smoothies go a long way in providing your body with all the vitamins and nutrients that it needs. Smoothies are not as enjoyable as sitting down and having a nice meal with your family but they do the job of giving your body what it needs nutritionally. If you are short on time to enjoy healthy meals and if you do not have enough time to prepare good healthy meals, smoothies like this should be part of your Nutrition program.

I hope you all enjoy this recipe. If you, a friend, family member or loved one needs help losing weight, I invite you to call us and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Call us now at 215-821-7336.

Fat Burning Detox Smoothies by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

First, I’d like to start by congratulating all of our Philadelphia medical weight loss patients and our Bucks County medical weight loss patients on successfully continuing with their weight loss goals during this past holiday season.

The holiday season is usually the time of year when people gain quite a bit of weight. And for those of you that have lost weight over this time or maintained the weight that you have lost, I commend you.

Most of the patients I have seen this week told me that they were never really that hungry because the appetite suppressant medications helped control their appetite. This enabled them to maintain their nutritional diet plan but of course with it being a holiday they did cheat a little bit. In today’s article I am going to give you two great smoothie recipes that should help satisfy your appetite and cravings, help cleanse your body and get your weight loss program back on track.

2018 Rapid Weight Loss Plan by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

In our Philadelphia medical weight loss program, we use high-quality appetite suppressant medications, vitamin B-12 injection therapy and sound nutrition and exercise protocols. This combination of weight loss pills, good nutrition plans and safe exercise regimens has helped many people lose weight. The weight loss pills are designed to help control your appetite and even though you may not be hungry you still need to eat and follow a proper nutrition plan.

So, in today’s article I’m going to give you a meal plan that should help you achieve your weight loss goals when used with our weight loss program.

For most weight loss patients, it is usually recommended that you eat three meals a day and two good healthy snacks. For snacks we like vegetables, especially celery, cucumbers and carrots. However, you may also eat a low glycemic fruit as a snack.

For breakfast it is recommended to eat 2 ounces of protein, 1 portion of good healthy fat, and 1 portion of a good carbohydrate or 1 portion of a low glycemic fruit.

Then we have a snack in between breakfast and lunch.

For lunch it is recommended to eat 4 – 6 ounces of protein, 1 – 2 portions of a good healthy fat and 4 ounces of vegetables.

And then we have another snack in between lunch and dinner.

For dinner it is usually recommended to eat 4 – 6 ounces of protein, 1 portion of a good healthy fat, 1 portion of a starchy carbohydrate and 4 ounces of vegetables.

I just want to make a note that even though I have 4 ounces of vegetables at both lunch and dinner you may eat more than 4 ounces of vegetables at both lunch and dinner. Vegetables are an excellent source of healthy nutrition and usually I try to eat at least 4 – 5 cups of vegetables a day. Especially leafy green vegetables. It’s no surprise that people that eat lots of vegetables enjoy excellent overall health and wellness.

For general calorie recommendations it is not recommended that females eat less than 1000 calories per day. For men, usually it is not recommended that men eat less than 1600 calories per day.

Your age, height, weight, lifestyle activity level and exercise routines usually help determine the number of calories you should be eating for the day.
