The Miami Diet Plan consists of a unique food plan and optional prescription weight loss medication. The food part of the plan is not simply low carbs, low fat, organic food, or any other fad diet. Nor is it about counting calories, grams of fat, points or anything else. There is no special shopping or a single recipe in the plan. Rather, it’s simply what has worked year after year for tens of thousands of individuals I have treated; people just like you who have successfully lost weight and kept the weight off. Here is what these successful dieters do in my practice and in the literature:
- They eliminate a few target foods such as sugary drinks, fast foods, and bad snacks.
- They rarely skip breakfast
- Almost all eat a small lunch.
- All of them prevent hunger and cravings later in the day with multiple good snacks.
What they did not do was eat special foods, count calories, carbs, fat grams, or anything else.
Patient Success Stories on Miami Diet Plan
Medical Weight Loss in Miami by Dr. Lipman, Endocrinologist
Medical Weight Loss is physician supervised from the first day to the end by board certified internist and endocrinologist Dr. Richard Lipman M.D. When you make an appointment, no matter which of my diet plans we find works best for you, you get a complete evaluation to determine any medical reasons for your weight gain. That includes a review of your medical history, diet history, current health problems, blood levels, thyroid function, current medications, body fat measurement, and metabolic profile. With this information we not only figure out your target foods, we can address any medical issues that are making weight loss difficult for you.
Miami Diet Plan and FDA Approved Prescription Weight Loss Medication
The second part of the Miami Diet Plan can include combining the simple food plan with an FDA approved weight loss medication. Whether to add weight loss medication to your plan is dependent on your weight loss goals, current medications, metabolism, and medical necessity. Many overweight people can lose all the weight they want with some simple food changes.
The majority, however, need the help of increased metabolism, appetite, and craving control achieved with prescription weight loss medication. Dr Lipman’s extensive experience, having treated over 40,000 people in the past 40 years, helps him match the “right medication” with the “right” metabolic problem to achieve fast, healthy and safe weight loss without any side effects. Medications for weight loss are extensively described in this web site. Watch a video about the medical weight loss medications.
What’s to Eat on the Miami Diet Plan
In the Miami Diet Plan, you first identify and then eliminate the personal food triggers that have caused most of your weight gain. You will adopt the same techniques employed by thousands of individuals who have lost substantial amounts of weight. These people have continued with those techniques and maintained their new weights over a long period without even realizing it. They are simple changes and that is why they can work for you. If necessary, we can significantly reduce your hunger and cravings with a prescription appetite suppressant. This gives you a chance to learn how to make better food choices without the pressure of constant cravings for problem foods.
