Quick and Easy Cheese Cake Recipe by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

I hope everyone is enjoying this Holiday season. Today I am giving you a delicious recipe that I have been sharing in the office with our weight loss patients. It’s a quick and easy cheese cake recipe that takes lees than 10 minutes to make. It’s low carb and ketosis friendly.

 

 

My Favorite Quick and Easy Low Carb Cheesecake

  • Full fat cream cheese – 1 cup 
  • Heavy whipping cream – 1 cup
  • cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon
  • vanilla extract – 1 tablespoon
  • swerve – 1/4 cup 
  • Optional ingredients: 12 blueberries or 3 tablespoons of chopped dark chocolate at least 85% .

Directions: Place all of your ingredients except for the chocolate and blueberries in a bowl and mix everything until the mixture is combined nicely. Then, just spoon out your cheesecake batter into glasses. Next place 3 blueberries over top of the batter or break up your chocolate and sprinkle it over top and then you can store it in the refrigerator by just covering each glass with plastic wrap. This delicious treat should last up to four days in the refrigerator. This recipe makes about four servings each of them has approximately 5 g of carbohydrates and about 6 g of protein. If you add the blueberries you are adding additional fructose.

So there you have it. A quick and easy recipe for a scrumptious treat.

5 Zero Calorie Hunger Busters by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadelphia diet doctors weight loss pills appetite suppressant medications phentermine in philadelphia

In today’s post I am going to review and interesting Journal article I recently read on things that can trigger your cravings and give you 5 easy tips to help control your appetite.

I recently read an article in the journal Brain and Cognition, and it stated that flipping through food magazines and even watching the ever more popular cooking shows can cause you to salivate even if you are not really hungry. But if you are hungry they can make you feel like you are starving. So have a large bottle of water with you to quiet those hunger pains.

Your feelings and emotions can also trigger your hungry. I know that stress, sadness and grief always make me more hungry.Y

So here are 5 easy tips to help curb your cravings and appetite.

One of the oldest diet tips I know is to fill your tummy with water. Or you can eat foods that have lots of liquid like beef or chicken broth. Snack on celery in between meals because they also contain lots of water. Vegetables are great because they give you lots of healthy nutrition that you body needs

Get Physical, when you start to feel hungry drink some water and go for a walk for 15-20 minutes. You can also ride a stationary bike at home, walk on a treadmill or just walk up and down the steps in your house (but don’t trip!). Some of our patients like to do body-weight exercises like jumping jacks or pushups or just run in place. The exercise will help burn calories and also help to reduce your appetite.

One of Dr. Mermelstein’s weight loss tips is to brush and floss your teeth after dinner to help you not stack after dinner.

Another tip is to enjoy some sugar-free gum. This is a tip that I use, especially when I am really hungry and not able to eat.

My wife’s favorite weight loss tip is to put a few drops of peppermint oil on a cotton swab, then place them in a jar with a lid. When you are hungry just unscrew the lid and smell the peppermint. This should help should help curb your appetite.

I hope you enjoy these weight loss tips! If you would like more information on our weight loss program just give us a call at 215-821-7336
