Today I’m going to give you three great smoothie recipes. They happen to be three of my favorite recipes. Usually my smoothie recipes contain lots of vegetables but today these recipes just taste really good and are more leaning towards a lower carbohydrate – higher fat diet such as a ketosis diet plan. The recipes are for a Chocolate Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie, a Chocolate Coconut Smoothie and a Coconut Berry Smoothie.

7 Weight Loss Tips from our Philadelphia Medical Weight Loss Center to lose weight fast.
You should have a small portion of protein with each and every meal.
Stay away from fried foods. When foods are fried it diminishes all the nutritional benefits of that particular food and it also adds a tremendous amount of calories and unhealthy fats. Better cooking methods include steaming, grilling, broiling and baking.
You should be physically active each and every day. In order to lose weight it is not necessary to spend two hours in the gym every day. In fact you do not even have to have to gym membership. All you have to do is be active. The more physically active you are the more calories you burn during the day. You will also help develop good lean muscle and burn fat. You can take the stairs at work instead of using the elevator. You can ride a bicycle to work or to school. While you are watching your favorite television show it night you could actually be peddling on a stationary bike. You could also take a brisk walk around your neighborhood or your favorite local park. To achieve the maximum fat loss you should have a goal of performing some type of cardiovascular activity for 60 minutes each day.
Tip Number 4:
You should have your breakfast within the first 30 to 60 minutes of waking up. This will balance your body's chemistry and also put your body into fat burning mode for that day. If you do not eat during the first 30 to 60 minutes of waking up your body will go into starvation mode in the majority of the calories that you consumed during the day will be stored as fat. Please remember that you have to eat a good quality source of protein at breakfast. Coffee with extra cream and extra sugar and a jelly doughnut do not make up a healthy breakfast but they will make you terribly fat.
Tip Number 5:
You should drink at least 64 ounces of water every day. Your body needs to be properly hydrated in order to perform all of its normal activities. Without the right amount of water your body will not operate at its peak capacity.
Tip Number 6:
Do not be confused with all the different diet fads and 20 weight loss programs. So many people come into my office and are totally confused about what they really should be doing in order to be healthy and in order to be at a body weight that they would be happy with. Sadly this is because of all of the advertisements and infomercials that are on the television and on the Internet. The majority of these advertisements are just promoting weight loss programs, supplements or products that may give you a quick fix but eventually you will usually gained back all the weight you lost and probably even more than the weight you lost.
Tip Number 7:
If you really want to lose weight in a fast, safe and healthy way order to lose weight you should work with a healthcare professional that specializes in weight loss. In our medical weight loss program many of our patients do not have the slightest idea about what they really have to do to lose weight but this does not matter because we hold our patients by the hand and guide them step-by-step through their weight loss journey.
