Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

At our medical weight loss center in Philadelphia, Dr. Mermelstein and his staff of nurse practitioners and physician assistants help people achieve their weight loss goals. Dr. Mermelstein may use FDA approved weight loss medications, various vitamin injection therapies such as vitamin B 12 and other lipotropic injections also known as the Lipo-Shot. When combined with a proper nutrition plan and some type of physical activity most patients do extremely well and achieve their weight loss goals. In our program Dr. Kenny also spends time educating people on the proper type of diet that he believes to be best for them.

Some of the medications that Dr. Mermelstein may prescribe for a weight-loss patient are:

 

  • Phentermine – Adipex,
  • Phendimetrazine – Bontril
  • Belviq
  • Plenity
  • Saxenda
  • Qsymia

Each of these medications work in their own way to help facilitate the weight loss process for people. Phentermine, for example, is one of the oldest weight-loss medications to be prescribed by physicians for patients.

Phentermine helps by giving people a feeling of satiety or being full and not hungry. Phentermine also helps stimulate the body processes that break down fat.

When our patients combine taking phentermine with the diet plan that we give them most people are very successful and lose weight.

If a person also adds some type of physical activity even if it is just walking during the day it provides an extra boost to their losing weight. Even our patients that are not able to exercise much at all because of back injuries, leg injuries or some other type of health issue usually do well as long as they follow the diet plan we give them.

When you come to your office you will fill out a questionnaire telling us about your medical history, any health issues that you may have such as hypothyroidism, PCOS, diabetes and high blood pressure. We also ask that you tell us the medications that you are presently taking. After that you will see the doctor – medical provider and they will review your medical history and medications then perform an evaluation that includes measuring your height and weight, calculating your BMI, taking your blood pressure, pulse and physical assessment.

The doctor will also discuss your goals and after all of that will make the recommendations for the plan that he believes will be best for you. This may include the weight loss appetite suppressant medications. Then you will sit with Dr. Kenny and discuss diet/nutrition and physical activity recommendations. Dr. Kenny has lost 80 lbs on this plan and he has kept it off.

Usually patients are seen once a month unless they need to be seen more frequently because of other health issues they may have.

People are with us for as long as they need to be. Some patients may come to see us for a month or two while others may be with us longer because of the amount of weight that they need to lose. As long as a person needs us, we are here for them.

Now that summer is over, and the children are back in school most of us are getting back to our normal routine. For many, this includes losing the weight we gained over the summer. Many of us enjoyed vacations, parties, celebrations and barbecues and subsequently gained weight. 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.

Our Philadelphia weight loss program includes a consultation with the doctor, weight loss pills – appetite suppressant medications, vitamin B12 injection therapy and of course proper instruction in a diet and exercise plan. 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.

 

 

Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia Common Pitfalls of The Ketosis Diet

If this is your first time visiting our website I invite you to call and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Just call 215-821-7336 and Lisa would gladly schedule your weight loss consultation.

In today’s article I am giving you two really great recipes for 2 awesome treats. Both recipes are low in carbohydrates and low in sugar and are suitable for a low carbohydrate or ketosis type diet.

I am also going to review four of the most common mistakes that I see people making when it comes to a low carbohydrate or ketosis type diet. In this blog I always like to provide recipes and discuss trending Health topics. I am reviewing the mistakes in doing the ketosis diet today because it is a hot topic in the weight loss and fitness world and also many new patients coming into our office are trying to follow a ketosis diet. And these other mistakes that I see most people coming into her office doing. So I hope you enjoy these recipes and I hope you enjoy the information on ketosis.

Creamy Berry Smoothie

  • heavy cream – ¼ cup
  • cream cheese – ¼ cup
  • Chia seeds – 1 tablespoon
  • berries = 1/4 cup
  • milk – one half to one cup
  • ice cubes – 5 to 6
  • Combine all of the ingredients into a blender, blend and enjoy.

Pumpkin Spice 1 Minute Low Carb Cake

  • egg – 1
  • almond flour – 1 tablespoon
  • pumpkin spice – 1 teaspoon
  • baking powder – 1 teaspoon
  • stevia – 1 to 2 packets
  • flax seed, ground – 2 tablespoons
  • butter – 2 tablespoons

Take a microwave safe bowl and add your butter to it and then melt the butter in your microwave. This should take approximately 30 seconds. Then add the egg to the bowl and whisk the egg and butter. After that just add all of the other ingredients and mix them thoroughly together. Place the bowl in the microwave for about 60 seconds or so. You may prefer cooking the cake a little bit longer. Just make sure that the egg is totally cooked. When it is cooked the way you like it, let it cool down and then enjoy.  You can top this with some sugar free whipped cream. You can make your own whipped cream just by taking heavy cream and use a hand mixer to mix it until stiff peaks form, You can use stevia to sweeten the whipped cream. To make a totally decadent treat you may top this with berries.

Here are the most common mistakes I see when people are following a Ketosis diet:

One of the most common mistakes that I see with people doing a ketosis diet is that they’re eating too much protein. When you eat too much protein that can also increase the amount of insulin that is produced by your body and this will put you into fat storing mode instead of fat burning mode. Everyone thinks that on the ketosis diet you can eat as much protein as you want but that is totally wrong. Most people need approximately 3 to 6 ounces of protein per meal. If you are 20 years old or younger and your metabolism is higher you can probably eat more protein. And if you are doing heavy weight lifting you may want to consume more protein.But for most of us 3 to 6 ounces of protein per meal is sufficient.

The second most common mistake that I see on the ketosis diet is that people stop eating vegetables. Vegetables are a necessary part of your body because they provide you with a multitude of vitamins and minerals especially potassium. Potassium is necessary it is an important electrolyte that helps regulate the muscles of the body and it also helps flush fat out of your body.

Mistake #3  is that people are actually eating too many carbohydrates. You have to be careful for the sugar in foods such as fruit, vitamin water, rice, pasta and bread. You have to be especially careful reading the ingredients of all the beverages that you are drinking. Many of the drinks that people are consuming are loaded with sugar and this will definitely keep you out of ketosis and cause you to gain weight. But don’t worry about counting the carbohydrates in your vegetables because when it comes to vegetables you can eat as many as you want. If you can keep a food log and track the amount of carbohydrates you or eating throughout the day you may be surprised how many carbohydrates you are truly eating. That’s why I usually recommend that people keep a food journal or diary. And after the first month or so  you usually developed good healthy habits and automatically choose the right type of foods and the proper portion sizes.

Mistake #4 is that you can be too concerned with your body weight. Often times when following a ketosis diet your body is losing weight but developing muscle at the same time. So I usually recommend that people pay more attention to their physique, to their waist measurement and how their clothing is fitting. Many times a person  may not be losing that much weight on the scale but they are rapidly dropping dress sizes.

I hope that you enjoy these recipes and I certainly hope that you enjoyed this information on the common pitfalls of the ketosis diet. If you, a friend, coworker or loved one would like help losing weight, I invite you to call and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Just call 215-821-7336 and Lisa will schedule your free weight loss consultation.

Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctors Philly Ketosis Fat Bomb Smoothie

If you are looking for Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctors call us for your free consultation. Call 215-821-7336 for more information and to schedule your free consultation. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and in celebration of our Philadelphia Eagles I am giving you a super green smoothie recipe that is loaded with healthy nutrients, good healthy fats and of course it’s the color green.

This Super Bowl Sunday is special to me for 2 reasons; one is that our Eagles are in it and even more important is that I married my wife 30 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday. Hopefully the Eagles can give us a Super Bowl victory as a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift.

This recipe will give you a very large smoothie that you can put in a travel mug and drink it all day for continuous energy. Or you can divide it between 2 servings. This recipe is low carb and has lots of good healthy fat. I like to make this early in the morning and take it with me to the office. I keep it in the refrigerator and drink it in between patients.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Avocado
  • 2 handful of sprouts
  • 2 handfuls of greens
  • 2 tbsp organic cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Optional stevia to taste

Combine all of the ingredients into a blender, blend and enjoy. The Smoothie will have a very thick and creamy consistency.

The avocados and full fat coconut milk have lots of good healthy fat that should help you eliminate your appetite. In another article on this blog that I posted some time ago I wrote that there is a section in the colon that is called the brake and that when good healthy fats pass over this section the body releases hormones that should help control your appetite for as much as 3 hours. That’s why this smoothie should be part of your diet program.

During the week when I am in the office seeing patients I have this smoothie for one or even two of my meals. In today’s world it seems that most of us do not have time to sit down and enjoy a good healthy meal. So smoothies go a long way in providing your body with all the vitamins and nutrients that it needs. Smoothies are not as enjoyable as sitting down and having a nice meal with your family but they do the job of giving your body what it needs nutritionally. If you are short on time to enjoy healthy meals and if you do not have enough time to prepare good healthy meals, smoothies like this should be part of your Nutrition program.

I hope you all enjoy this recipe. If you, a friend, family member or loved one needs help losing weight, I invite you to call us and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Call us now at 215-821-7336.
