CNN Article Supports Long Term Use of Weight Loss Medications Reduces Risk of Diabetes Heart Disease…

In our Philadelphia medical weight loss center our programs are designed to help people lose weight and also improve their overall health and wellness. Many of the people that come to  our weight loss clinic have tried every type of diet and exercise program out there and they may have lost a little bit of weight but they always seem to gain it back. Our program takes all of this into consideration and we work with the person to design the optimal plan to help them achieve their desired bodyweight.  

We design our weight loss programs taking many things into consideration such as your age, sex, level of physical fitness and of course we have to take into consideration any illnesses or diseases that you might have. All of these things are very important and that is why our program is very successful.

In addition to providing a person with a good nutrition diet plan and an exercise program we also may use weight-loss medications and appetite suppressant medications. More and more evidence is coming out that supports the use of weight loss medication. And even more evidence is being presented that supports the use of long-term use of such medications.

More than ever the medical societies in this country are realizing that many of the illnesses such as diabetes, heart attack and stroke, just to name a few, are related to a person being overweight or obese.

For many people just following a diet and exercise plan are simply not enough to help them maintain a healthy body weight. And with them being overweight comes the risk of developing many illnesses and diseases.  

We see many people coming to see us in our weight loss clinic that are following a sensible eating and exercise plan and yet they are still overweight.  They are doing everything right and yet they are still overweight. And this is the reason why we utilize weight-loss medications in our plan.  

CNN recently published an article on this very topic. In the article they interviewed top weight loss specialist who believed that long-term use of weight loss medications are needed in order for people to maintain a healthy body weight. In the article they explained that a section of the brain (the hypothalamus) controls our hunger, our appetite and our cravings.

This section of the brain is stimulated by hormones made by your stomach, intestines and fat cells. When you eat your stomach, intestines and fat cells releases specific hormones that tell your brain that you are full, and to stop eating.

But when a person is overweight or obese the nerves that connect to this section of the brain become desensitized, therefore our appetite is never controlled, we never get full. In the article these weight loss specialists stated that these nerves become desensitized and damaged, therefore a person will just continue to eat and gain weight.  

And that this is why weight loss medications are necessary; because the body has lost its ability to regulate its hunger.  

In the article the weight loss specialists state that losing just 5% to 10% of your body weight can help improve your blood pressure and reduce your triglycerides and decrease your blood sugar levels and that this can significantly reduce the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. Just by losing 5% of your body weight you can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 50%.  

In summary more and more evidence is supporting long-term use of weight loss medications in order to help people lose weight and also reduce the risk of developing serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and even certain types of cancer.

Crack open your egg and place it into the center and each of the avocado halves and then sprinkle your pepper and salt over top. Next let’s place this any of and for approximately 13 – 21 minutes – until the eggs cooked. When it is finished cooking just take it out of the oven and top it with any of the other additional toppings or even some of your own toppings that you really like.

  • Parmesan cheese – 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • green onion – 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion
  • black pepper – 1/2 teaspoon
  • butter – 1/4 cup
  • hollandaise

This is a really great recipe let’s begin by taking the zucchini and mixing them in a bowl with the salt. After everything is mixed together nicely just let this sit for about 14 minutes. And then drain any extra liquid out of it. Next we and add the pepper, egg, green onion and Parmesan cheese and mix everything together well. After that place a skillet over medium – high heat, allow the butter to melt and make do zucchini mixture into 4 portions. They should be about 2.5 inches in diameter and a half inch thick. Put them in your pan and let them fry for about 5 minutes per side or for as long as it takes until they are nice and golden brown. Then remove them from the pan and place them on a cooling rack. After the cool down a little bit you can serve them with the holiday sauce.

This recipe makes four cakes and that equals four servings each serving has about 440 cal, 3 grams of protein and about 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Antipasto*

  • Ingredients:
  • mozzarella cheese – 12 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese sliced
  • extra-virgin olive oil – 2 tablespoons
  • chopped fresh basil – 2 tablespoons
  • oregano – 2 tablespoons
  • ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
  • olive – 27 pitted
  • salami – 4 ounces thinly sliced

This of course is one of my all-time favorites! First I like to take the cheese slices and place them nicely on a platter and then drizzle the olive oil over top and of course sprinkle over top the oregano, black pepper, basil and salt. Now I just add the salami and the olives and it’s ready to serve. This recipe makes about 6 servings each of them has approximately 280 cal, 4 grams of carbohydrates and 18 grams of protein.

Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto and Fried*

  • Ingredients:
  • coconut oil or olive oil – 2 tablespoons
  • unsalted butter – 2 tablespoons
  • frozen string cheese – 8 pieces
  • prosciutto – 8 slices that are very thin
  • any type of herbs that you like – oregano, tarragon, thyme or even sage.
  • Marinara sauce

Of course this is another one of my all-time favorites! First I take up and and I heat the oil over medium heat. Then I unwrapped the cheese. Now comes the fun part, wrapped each piece of cheese with one slice of prosciutto making sure that you wrap up the entire piece of cheese including the ends. If you like you can actually now sprinkle your chopped herbs for more of the crust. Then just take each piece of the frozen cheese wrapped in the prosciutto and place it in the pan and just fry it. Make sure that you are turning it often until it becomes a bit crisp and the cheese starts to soften. This happened very quickly you should only take a few minutes. Now all you have to do is set them all the platter let them cool down a bit and you could dip them in the marinara sauce. I do have to say once again this is one of my all-time favorite recipes. This recipe makes eight pieces and two of the make up a serving. Each serving has about 18 grams of protein, 330 cal and 2 grams of carbohydrates.

So there you have four great recipes that are lower in carbohydrates and recipes that are not usually considered diet food.

Now let’s get to those recipes. And this post I’m going to give you the recipes for low carbohydrate versions of an avocado salad, guacamole dip, cheese and pepperoni chips, jalapeno Poppers and blue cheese celery slammers.

Here are the recipes:

Avocado Salad*

  • Ingredients:
  • avocado – 1/2 of an avocado
  • Olive oil – 2 teaspoons
  • line – 1/4 line
  • salt and pepper to taste

To make your delicious salad just slice the avocado and half and set the slices nicely on a plate and then sprinkle with the olive oil and squeeze the lime over top. Add the salt and pepper to taste. A nice little gadget that I suggest that you purchase is an avocado slicer. Since avocados are a big part of my daily diet I always make sure that we have plenty in the house. This recipe makes one serving and it only has 9 grams of carbohydrates and 246 cal.

Guacamole Dip*

  • Ingredients:
  • minced red onion – 1 tablespoon
  • crushed garlic clove – 1/2 garlic clove crushed
  • a ripe avocado
  • 1/4 lime
  • Olive oil – 1 tablespoon
  • hot sauce – to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon of minced cilantro

Let’s start by mincing our onion and crushing are garlic and combining them both in a bowl. Cut your avocado in half and scoop out the meat into that ball that has are garlic and minced onion. Mash the avocado with a fork. But do not make it to smooth, you should leave it a little bit chunky. Add your lime juice by squeezing the lime and then add the cilantro, hot sauce, Olive Oyl and salt. I usually like to serve mind as soon as we make it because it really doesn’t last that long. This recipe makes about two servings each of them having approximately 220 cal, 20 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 9 grams of carbohydrates.

Cheese and Pepperoni Chips*

  • I know, I have you thinking here – what are pepperoni chips? So just continue reading and you will see what I mean.
  • Ingredients:
  • pepperoni slices – 1 ounce of pepperoni slices
  • whipped cream cheese – 2 tablespoons of cream cheese

Place your pepperoni slices on a microwavable safe plate and microwave them for about 60 – 90 seconds or for as long as it takes for them to be crisp. Now all you have to do is spread the whipped cream cheese over top of them and enjoy. This recipe is for one serving and it contains approximately 200 cal, 7 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Jalapeno Poppers*

  • Ingredients:
  • jalapeno peppers – 2 fresh jalapeno peppers
  • cream cheese – 1.5 ounces of cream cheese
  • bacon – 2 slices of bacon

First let’s start by slicing open are peppers and remove the stems and scrape out the seeds from the inside. Next put half of the cream cheese into each of the peppers. Then just take your bacon and wrap it around the pepper covering as much of it as you can. You should use a toothpick to keep this together. Next just grill or broil them until the bacon is totally cooked. And now all you have to do is eat them!

And that is why we are constantly updating this blog every week with healthy recipes and today I going to give you the recipes for nacho cheese crisps, a low-carb version of chocolate bacon toffee ice cream (according to my son Noah everything taste better with bacon – lol) and a low-carb version of chocolate soufflé.

So here are the three recipes:

Nacho Cheese Crisps

  • Ingredients:
  • frozen shredded sharp cheddar cheese – 2 ounces
  • egg whites – three large egg weights
  • cream of Tartar – 1/8 teaspoon
  • taco seasoning – 2 teaspoons

Let’s start this fantastic recipe by preheating are oven to 300°F. Next we take a piece of parchment paper and place it over top of a baking sheet. Now the fun begins. Take your frozen cheese and put in a food processor and chop it into tiny pieces. In a mixing bowl mix together the cream of Tartar with the egg white’s and then add the cheese over top. After that mix the cheese into the cream of Tartar and egg white mixture. Try to keep the mixture nice fluffy but you definitely want to make sure that the cheese is all the way through out the mixture. And here is where it gets really fun, take this mixture and you could place it into a pipette bag and squeeze this mixture onto your baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You want to make strips at least 2 – 3 inches long and about 1/2 inch wide. (My son Noah made these at college and instead of using a pipette bag all he did was get a large Ziploc bag put the mixture into their could a whole and one quarter of the bag and squeezed out some pretty heavy duty strips of this delicious mixture.) After you have major strips on the baking sheet just sprinkle over top your taco seasoning. Then let this bake any of and for approximately 25 – 30 minutes. I like mine to be very crispy and the longer that you bake them the crispier they will become. But just make sure that you do not burn them. Sometimes after the first 25 minutes I will shut off my oven and just leave them there for about another 20 minutes or so so that they are nice and crispy but they are not overly burn. Of course, it’s always best when you eat this soon after it’s made at least within a couple days but if you use a really good container should be good for approximately 5 – 6 days. This recipe makes about 5 – 6 servings and each has around 55 calories, almost 2 grams of carbohydrates and about 4 grams of protein.

Chocolate Bacon Toffee Ice Cream – Low Carb

  • Serves 8
  • Ingredients:
  • Swerve, erythritol or any other sugar substitute – 1 cup
  • Eggs – 3 large
  • cocoa powder – 1 cup
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk – 1 cup
  • heavy whipping cream – 1½ cups
  • pinch of salt
  • xanthan gum – ½ tsp
  • 90% chocolate – 4 squares
  • heavy whipping cream – 2 Tbsp
  • ¼ cup chopped crispy bacon – ¼ cup
  • Chopped sugar free toffee – 3 squares

This is a really great recipe were going to start by mixing together your cocoa powder, xanthan gum, almond milk, eggs and sugar substitute. After everything is mixed nicely make sure that you are using a microwave safe bowl and put this into the microwave and microwave for about 1 minute or so. Take it out of the microwave, stir it and then put it back into the microwave for about another 30 seconds. Then stir up one more time and microwave for another 30 seconds. Hopefully, by this time the mixture should be a bit second. If it is not; continue to microwave for 30 seconds and then stir until it’s thickened a bit. When you finally have the proper consistency mix in your heavy cream and a little pinch of salt. Let this cool in the refrigerator overnight.

Melt the chocolate together with the 2 tablespoons of whipping cream and then mix in the bacon. Spread this mixture out on either wax paper or on parchment paper and let it chill until it’s hardened. Once it’s nice and hard you can break into pieces and set it on the side. When your ice cream mixture has thoroughly chilled you can put it through an ice cream maker. Just follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker and I’m sure everything will come out the way it should be.

Wait until there is about two minutes left for your ice cream and to be ready and then mix in the bacon and toffee. Let it process for the final 2 minutes and then you can either serve it as soon as it is ready or you can place it in the freezer and let it firm up a bit. If I am placing it in the freezer to be served later I just make sure that I take it out of the freezer for about 20 minutes before we are going to eat it. Just leaving it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes or so will allow it to become nice and soft to see you can totally enjoy all the rich flavors of this ice cream. This recipe has about 300 calories per serving, 6 grams of carbohydrates and 5 grams of protein.

Low Carb Chocolate Souffle’

  • Ingredients:
  • butter – 1 tablespoon
  • Monk fruit sugar – 1/3 cup
  • unsweetened chocolate – 5 ounces
  • egg yolks – three large egg yolks at room temperature
  • egg whites – 6 large egg whites
  • whipped cream – 1 cup

Let’s start by preheating the oven to 375°F. Then butter your soufflé dish with your 1 tablespoon of butter. After that let’s melt your unsweetened chocolate in a bowl, you should stir this while it is melting.

When the chocolate is melted remove the ball from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks until it hardens a bit. In another bowl whisk your egg whites with a pinch of salt, use an electric mixer while adding the 1/3 cup of monk fruit. Just make sure that you at the monk fruit a bit at a time. Now stir approximately 1 cup of your egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then add this mixture to their remaining egg whites. Just mix everything together nicely. After that pour into the soufflé dish and bake this in your oven for about 18 – 20 minutes or so just until it becomes puffy with a nice crust on top.
