If you are looking to lose weight and would like more information on our weight loss program just call us at 215-821-7336 and schedule your free weight was consultation.

We will give you meal plans in addition to updating this website with recipes that taste good and will help you reach your weight loss goals. We also will review trending topics in health, wellness, nutrition and of course weight loss. One of the most popular recent topics in weight loss is the ketogenic diet.

And that is why our most recent articles have been about the ketogenic diet. In our medical alert loss program, we use different diet plans for different people. Many people are fine following a diet plan that includes a little bit of everything while others may need the to follow a plan that is a bit more specific. I am a perfect example of this because I am diabetic and there are certain foods that I should definitely avoid because they will spike my blood sugar levels way too high. So, whatever your specific needs are we will develop a plan specifically for you.

In today’s article we are going to give you two great recipes to help you lose weight with our weight loss program. Today’s recipes are for a Blueberry Ketosis Smoothie and a Chocolate Banana Cheesecake. These recipes are great if you are following a low carbohydrate diet.

Here are the recipes:

Blueberry Coconut Ketosis Smoothie  XVIII

  • Coconut milk – 1 cup
  • Blueberries – ¼ cup
  • Protein powder – 1 scoop
  • Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil or MCT oil – 1 teaspoon
  • Ice – ½ cup
  • Combine in a blender, blend and enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Cheesecake (cupcakes)

I have coconut oil as an ingredient in this recipe but if you do not like the taste of coconut oil you can use refined coconut oil that does not have the coconut taste. This recipe has 2 parts, one for the cake / base and one for the topping.

Ingredients for the cake:

  • cream cheese – 5 ounces
  • butter – 1.5 ounces
  • coconut oil – ¼ cup
  • erythritol – 1 tablespoon
  • vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
  • optional: banana extract – ¼ teaspoon
  • Mix together

Ingredients for the topping:

  • Coconut oil – ½ cup
  • Cocoa powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Erythritol – 1 teaspoon
  • Mix together

Add the cake mixture to a cupcake tray. Use a spoon and fill the cupcake tray with the cheesecake mixture. Make sure to leave room for the topping, so do not fill the cheesecake batter to the top.

Next, place this in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. Then take your tray out of the refrigerator and top the cakes with the chocolate topping. Finally place the tray into the refrigerator and leave it until it sets nice and firm. I usually like to leave mine in refrigerator overnight.

I hope you enjoy these recipes. If you would like help losing weight I invite you to call us and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Just call us at 215-821-7336 and we will gladly schedule your free weight loss consultation.

Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctor Recipe for Fast Weight Loss Health and Wellness

How would you like to reduce your chances of  suffering from heart attack, diabetes, stroke, certain cancers in a multitude of other diseases? If this peaks your interest, read the rest of this article.   Let me take a moment and invite you to call for your free weight loss consultation if this is your first time visiting our website. Just call Lisa at 215-821-7336 and she will gladly schedule you for free weight loss consultation.

Whether  we like it or not your waist measurement, amount of belly fat has a direct correlation with our overall health. Report after report has told us that being overweight/obese can cause a multitude of health issue such as: heart attack, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, heart disease and diabetes.

And now studies tell us that having a big belly, a waist circumference of 37 inches or more for men and for women 31.5 inches can increase the risk of developing breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and many other types of cancer.

It gets even worse because  you increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer by as much as 5% for every inch your waist as above these measurements. One of the reasons for this is that your belly fat produces certain type of chemicals – hormones. These hormones increase the inflammatory process in the body and as inflammation increases in the body so those the chance of developing various cancers.

If your belly is protruding or hanging a bit over your pants waistline you definitely need to take this seriously and start taking the necessary steps to reduce your waist size.

Many people think that all they have to do is count calories and they should automatically start losing weight. What they may forget is that calories do matter thought just as important is the types of food that you are eating.

If you are counting calories and decide to eat a candy bar that has 100 calories you have to realize that those 100 calories from a candy bar are not the same as 100 calories from carrots, broccoli or spinach. Each food is processed or metabolized differently by the body. Meaning that  the candy bar after being metabolized by the body turns into nothing but pure sugar. As compared to spinach when processed by the body is turned into nutrients that the body needs to be healthy and to function at peak capacity.

That’s why in our weight loss program we emphasize eating foods that will provide our bodies with great nutrition so that we may lose weight but also hopefully improve our overall health and wellness and enhance the ability of our body to function at optimal capacity. So yes the weight loss medications do a great job of reducing her appetite and cravings and this should allow us to make the proper food choices. And that’s why we believe our weight loss program is so successful.

It’s the powerful combination of FDA approved weight loss medications, healthy nutritional recommendations and physical activity that has helped our patients lose weight.

We do our best to educate our patients on proper healthy nutrition. And every week we like to update this website with recipes and articles on health and wellness.

Just call us at 215-821-7336 and Lisa will gladly schedule you for your free weight loss consultation.

Today I will be giving you 7 smoothie recipes to help you achieve your target body weight. One of my mentors always emphasized that adding one smoothie made of vegetables and one or two pieces of fruit is a great way to help reduce your daily caloric intake and provide your body with an abundance of healthy nutrients.

I also want to congratulate those of you who have been following our weight loss program and you are safely and steadily losing weight.

I applaud all of you for sticking to your goals and achieving weight loss. Losing weight and keeping a trimmer waistline is beneficial for improving your overall health and wellness, preventing diseases and of course it helps you look good and feel good. So many people come into our program wanting to lose weight to improve their physical appearance. But what they do not realize is that for most of us the whole process of losing weight begins with getting healthy.

And we help you with this by giving you a safe and healthy nutrition diet weight loss plan.  Numerous studies have shown that being overweight/obese leads to a multitude of illnesses and diseases. Being overweight can lead to everything from diabetes, strokes, heart attacks and even cancer.

That’s why the medical associations have banded together and are emphatically recommending that doctors focus on treating obesity. And this can be achieved by focusing on a safe nutritional weight loss plan and adding some type of physical exercise. The weight loss medications help control your appetite and this should help you make the correct food choices and make it easier to follow the diet plan.

The physical exercise can be something as simple as walking and in fact most of our patients started their weight loss journey by focusing on nutrition plan first and doing some easy walking. As the weight loss continued and their health and wellness improved they just added more time to their walks. Insanity type workouts are not needed if your goal is to lose weight. It is important that whatever activity you choose as your exercise is something that you joy doing. It should be something that you easily add to your lifestyle.

Weight Loss and Diabetes by Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctor

PhilaMedicalWeightLossIn today’s post I’m going to give you if you several really great smoothie recipes to help you along your weight loss journey and I am going to review help losing weight can reduce the risk of developing overweight related diseases such as diabetes.

Whether we like it or not we have to face the fact that the bigger our waistline becomes the greater our chances of developing certain diseases like diabetes.

And of course, the opposite of this is also true. If we lose weight or do our best to maintain a proper body weight we significantly reduce the chances of developing diabetes. Usually when a person is diagnosed with diabetes type II, the first recommendations the physician recommends is for the person to lose weight. Studies have shown that small amounts of weight loss can greatly reduce the chances of a person developing diabetes.

And in our office, we see people starting with us that have diabetes and as they work with us their HbA1c levels decrease over time.

If you are under the age of 65 just by losing 7% of your body weight you reduce your risk of developing diabetes by as much as 60%. And if you are over the age of 65 you can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 70% or more.

These numbers are significant because reports estimate that as many as 20 million people in this country have diabetes and that approximately 90% of these people are overweight. In the past, most people thought that diabetes was just a disease that you develop as you get older.

But now reports indicate that at least 37% of people 20 years old or older are prediabetic. This goes hand-in-hand with reports that tell us that more and more of the youth of this country are overweight and/or obese. So, you can see that diabetes does not really care how old you are.

Please be aware that no matter your age is extremely important to maintain a proper body weight to help prevent diseases like diabetes. And if you have been diagnosed with diabetes type II losing weight is so very important to help improve your health. Even the smallest amounts of weight loss have great impact. If you have been told that you are prediabetic just losing 2 pounds of your weight can reduce your chances of developing true diabetes by as much as 11%.

Now to help you lose weight and improve your overall health and wellness here are the smoothie recipes.

Green and Fresh Smoothie

  • Peeled cucumber – 1
  • pear, cored and seeded – 1
  • fresh mint – ½ cup
  • peeled lime – ½
  • sprouts – ½ cup
  • Combine everything into a blender, blend and enjoy.

Cool Apple Smoothie

  • Peeled cucumber – 1
  • pear, cored and seeded – 1
  • small apple cored and seeded – 1
  • fresh mint – ½ cup
  • peeled lemon – ½
  • Just combine everything into a blender or a juice machine and enjoy.

Veggie Pineapple Smoothie

  • Kale – 1 handful
  • spinach – 1 handful
  • pineapple chunks – ¼ cup
  • Combine everything into a high-powered blender, blend and enjoy.

Red Melon Smoothie

  • small apple cored and seeded – 1
  • honeydew chunks – ¼ cup
  • watermelon chunks – ¼ cup
  • kale – 1 handful

Many people believe that you have to lose weight to be healthy and that is true but it is also true that you have to be healthy in order to lose weight.

If you are eating lots of junk food you are giving your body bad nutrition and this will make you sick and overweight. But if you give your body healthy foods you should enjoy better health and a better body. Simply stated if you eat bad food you will feel bad and look unhealthy. If you give your body good food you will feel good and look good.
