In today’s article I am going to give you a few recipes that are loaded with awesome nutrition, will help satisfy your appetite and cravings and assist you in achieving your weight loss goals.

I am also going to discuss a topic – question that many new patients coming into our office are asking me about. And this question is about the Keto Diet or ketogenic diet. It seems that many new patients coming into the office have already started some type of ketogenic diet on their own and are suffering from diarrhea. And they have no idea why this is happening.

So, in this article after I give you the recipes for the smoothies, I will review why some people may initially experience diarrhea on a ketogenic diet, when they try doing on their own. The smoothie recipes will be for three of my favorite smoothies and they are the Keto Banana Avocado Fat Bomb Smoothie, Keto Blackberry Hemp Fat Bomb Smoothie and my Keto Blueberry Cavern Smoothie recipe.

Here are the recipes:

Keto Banana Avocado Fat Bomb Smoothie

  • 1 cup of coconut milk – full fat
  • 1 small banana – either fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds
  • 1/2 small avocado
  • Place everything into your blender, blend and enjoy!

Keto Blackberry Hemp Fat Bomb Smoothie

  • 1 cup of full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • Combine everything into your blender, blend and enjoy.

Keto Blueberry Carob Smoothie

  • Full fat coconut milk – 1 cup
  • Frozen blueberries – 1/4 cup
  • Carob powder – 1/4 cup
  • Solutions 4 protein powder – 1 scoop of chocolate, mocha or vanilla flavor.
  • Liquid Stevie to taste.
  • Combine everything into your blender, blend and enjoy!

So, there you have it, 3 of my favorite recipes for smoothies that will help satisfy your appetite and cravings, provide you with excellent nutrition and help satisfy your sweet tooth.

Now I am going to get into a somewhat sensitive topic and that is why do some people suffer from diarrhea when they first start the ketogenic diet. In my experience one of the main causes of diarrhea on the ketosis diet is that people are eating too many saturated fats.

The ketogenic diet does focus on eating good healthy fats, but your body has to adapt this way of eating overtime. Eating foods that contain good healthy fats such as salmon, avocados and olive oil are excellent when you are following the ketogenic diet, but they are also quite good for you even if you are not following a ketogenic diet. Eating these types of natural foods that are normally part of our everyday diet is usually not the problem. Eating these natural foods should normally be part of everyone’s diet plan. They promote better overall health, wellness and will help you lose weight.

But when people begin the ketogenic diet in addition to eating these regular healthy foods like salmon and avocados, they supplement with additional fats like coconut oil, MCT oil and frill oil. And sometimes all of this additional fat is too much for the body to handle. You see when you eat fatty foods your body produces more bile.

This is a normal healthy function that goes on in our body every day over lives. When we eat any type of fatty food are gallbladder automatically produces more bile and that helps the process of digesting our food. However, when people start supplementing with extra fats the body may produce extra bile that serves as a lubricant for our intestines and colon and this can cause diarrhea.

So, one of the easiest ways to help with diarrhea when starting a ketogenic diet is to decrease the amount of saturated fats that you are eating. Simply try to reduce a few of the extra oils that you have added your diet such as frill oil, coconut oil, MCT oil and any other extra oils that you may be consuming. And try not to add any extra fat to your diet; for example – try not to add extra butter to your meals just to add some additional fat.

Another thing that I have found with new patients coming into the office is that they have added bulletproof coffee to their normal daily routine. And since doing this they have been having diarrhea almost immediately after finishing their cup of bulletproof coffee. And this exemplifies my point that consuming too many fats can be causing your diarrhea. Stick with the normal fats that are in your everyday normal diet and you should be fine.

Easy Weight Loss Tips:

The first tip and most important one is that you have to decide that you are going to make changes in your life in order for you to lose weight and also improve your health and wellness. Many people talk about losing weight or wanting to lose weight and they think about it constantly, but they never get started. Once you make the decision that you are going to make an effort to lose weight pick a date and start your program. If you need help deciding which type of weight loss program is best for you that’s why we’re here. Just call us and schedule your complementary consultation. Just call 215-821-7336 and our receptionist would be glad to schedule you.

The second tip is that you need dedication. You need to be dedicated and committed to following the proper type of diet plan and if, you are able, some type of physical exercise routine. Dedication and consistency are two things that are necessary to help you lose weight. You have to be dedicated and committed to follow your eating plan and make sure that you are eating the proper types of food that are conducive to you losing weight.

Next, you have to follow a good meal plan. Wanting to lose weight is a great idea but unless you change your eating habits your weight will remain the same. You have to eat the proper amounts of protein, vegetables fruit and carbohydrates. Many people are under the impression that if they just do a high protein low carbohydrate diet they will lose a ton of weight. But I can tell you that this is not always the case. If you are following a low carbohydrate diet you still have to eat the proper amounts of proteins vegetables and carbohydrates. And we review all of this with our patients during their consultations.

Physical activity/exercise is also important. The type of exercise that you do depends upon your level of physical fitness, cardiac health overall health wellness and ability. Most of our weight loss patients start out by simply walking.

Walking is a great because it does not require you to purchase a gym membership. You can walk outside, if it isn’t bitter cold winter time or you can walk on the treadmill. In addition to walking I really like bike riding for weight loss exercise. One of the great things about stationary bikes is that they do not take up a lot of space in the house and you could place it in front of the TV at night and get your exercise done while you are watching your favorite television shows.

There are certain fat burning zones that are determined by your heart rate and we review this with our weight loss patients when we consult them. The beginning phase of the exercise is usually low intensity cardio to focus on losing pounds and inches and then when we get close to our weight loss goal we usually can start some type of exercise to tone the body. Trying to burn fat and build muscle at the same time becomes more difficult as we get older. This is simply because our hormone levels decrease as we get older.

So, there you have it, great recipes and some basic fundamental weight loss tips! I hope you enjoy them. If you need help losing weight and would like to consult with our Philadelphia weight loss doctors just call us and schedule your complementary consultation at 215-821-7336.

How To Kill Your Appetite by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadelphia weight loss pills diet pillsTurbo charge your weight loss with these hunger killing recipes. If you pay attention to social media you’ve probably seen so many of today’s celebrities following a low-carb diet and losing lots of weight fast. You also hear them using the term fat bomb. And in today’s post I’m going to tell you why eating these fat bombs are helping celebrities lose weight and keep it off; and I will give you some really quick and easy recipes for fat bombs (just like the celebrities are eating).

Now, fat bombs are basically little tiny bites of food that are mostly made up of good healthy fats like coconut oil, cream cheese and avocado. The reason they work is because they activate a small section in the small intestine that releases hormones that decrease or stop your appetite. Yes, you read that correctly. When you eat good healthy fats and they pass through this section in the small intestine, the intestine releases hormones that will help to decrease or stop your desire to eat (for as long as 3 hours for most people). When you combine these fat bombs with our weight loss pills and our sensible eating plans you have an awesome combination to help you achieve your weight loss goals. But I must ask you please not to add these fat bombs into your diet haphazardly. Please discuss  adding these to your nutritional plan when you see me on your next visit.

Here are the recipes:

Lemon & Cheesecake Fat Bombs
coconut oil – 1/4 cup
unsalted butter 1/4 cup
cream cheese – 4 oz
fresh lemon juice – 2 tablespoons
Stevia – to taste
Place all of the above ingredients into a bowl and blend them well together. Next, just pour them into a candy mold and allow them to freeze until they are firm. This recipe usually makes 10 pieces.

Coconutty Fat Bombs
coconut butter – 1/2 cup
coconut oil 1/2 cup
shredded unsweetened coconut – 1/2 cup
Stevia – to taste
Place your coconut butter and coconut oil in a pot over a low flame and stir until it’s nice and smooth and then stir in the shredded coconut and stevia. mix everything until it’s combined together. then, just pour it into a candy mold and let it freeze until it’s firm. Next you can melt approximately 3 oz of dark chocolate and just pour it over top of your firm coconut cups and set it back in the freezer. This recipe usually makes approximately 10 pieces.

Pizzaz Bombs
Pepperoni – 14 slices chopped
Pitted olives – 6 diced olives
Sun dried tomatoes – 4 of them that are oil packed – diced
Cream cheese- 4 ounces
basil – 1-2 tablespoons
Spice to taste – pepper, oregano, etc…
Combine everything together in a bowl. You can use a hand blender. Then just use your hand to roll about 7 nice sized balls

  • 3 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup of low sodium soy sauce

Let’s start this recipe by heating a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the chicken, red bell pepper, water chestnuts, broccoli and green onion and cook this for about 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Remove to a plate. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the skillet and add the rice and cook for approximately 1 minute. Stir in the soy sauce, vinegar and peas and cook this for approximately 1 minute. Stir in the chicken and vegetable mixture. Then enjoy! This makes approximately 4 servings. Each serving has about 395 calories.

Recipes to Burn Fat and Look Great by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

Hello everyone Dr. Kenny here, if you are one of our medical weight loss patients you know that my mantra is “Losing Weight Should be Simple, Easy, Delicious and Fun. So with that being said here are a few more weight loss recipes that are definitely delicious and should help you achieve your weight loss goals of losing 2 – 5 pounds per week. 

In my recent post of recipes on our website I have been giving you lots of weight loss recipes for weight loss smoothies and shakes in addition to regular appetizers, entrées, desserts and even snacks. The reason I have been posting so many smoothie recipes is because the majority of our patients are asking for quick and easy weight loss smoothie recipes because they do not have enough time for a regular breakfast first thing in the morning.

It just seems that everyone is always in a rush nowadays and there is never enough time to take care of yourself.

Most of the men I know are literally working 24/7 and most of the females that I know are also working 24/7 in addition to taking care of their children, getting them ready for school in the morning and then they head out to work or to take care of whatever responsibilities they have to attend to for the day.

So to me it seems that females have an even more difficult time taking care of themselves as compared to men. Now if you are man please do not be upset with me for saying this. I am a man, so this gives me the privilege to make such an observation. Honestly though, this is how it is in my house.

I do try to help with household chores and with the children but the majority of my time is spent in the office taking care of our wonderful patients. While my wife is taking care of the children, getting our youngest off to school in the morning and giving him a good healthy breakfast (because we know that young minds need good healthy food to fuel both their bodies and their brains to do well in school); in addition to this she also takes care of our three dogs and her parents. Not only does she do all of this but she also manages our offices and actually answers the phone and schedules the majority of appointments in our office. So when you call the office and if Elyse answers the phone you now know that she is my wife.

My wife is an amazing woman and she gave up her career in Pharmacy in order to stay at home and raise our three children and help us build our wonderful practice. So with all of this being said I know that women have a multitude of responsibilities and are not always capable of spending the time to take care of themselves. And that is why our weight loss program is designed to be simple, easy, delicious and fun and does not require you to exercise a multitude of hours each and every week.

Sorry! Sometimes I have a tendency to run on a bit LOL. But I am just very appreciative for the woman in my life and all the other woman in the world who are usually the backbone of their family and as such society.

Now! Here are the delicious weight loss recipes.

This is going to be a smoothie that is designed primarily for burning fat.

  • 1 tablespoon of flax seeds.
  • 4 – 6 ounces of unsweetened almond milk, hazelnut milk or any other type of nondairy milk.

Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until it is nice and smooth.This recipe is taken from the book “The 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse” That is written by Jennifer Smith , However I did modify the recipe by adding flax seeds and substituting our protein powder in place of the pitted dates.
