The Miami Diet Plan is Unlike any other Diet Program You have ever Tried
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
I lost 70 pounds and 15 inches in five months on Dr. Lipman’s Miami Diet Plan and I never felt better! Wow! I could never have imagined such possibilities. I was teased, picked on and laughed at because I was overweight just about my whole life. My self esteem was nonexistent and the more I gained, the more I ate. Finally my family doctor told me that my difficulty walking was due to tendinitis in my feet from being overweight. I decided it was time to do something about it.
I had been too many doctors and weight loss centers before a friend of mine told me about Dr. Lipman and the Miami Diet Plan. Dr. Lipman showed me the three main reasons I had been gaining weight. It was not lack of exercise – it was the so called healthy nuts and seeds, juices and the whole wheat pasta that I ate large bowls of thinking it was healthy. All along I thought I had a mental condition. I did not; I simply ate many of the wrong foods. I am living proof that the Miami Diet Plan is a safe, personalized system and a wholesome diet food plan — truly effective. The bad choices have been taken away and now I focus on the positive choices. I think of each day as an opportunity for success.
Dr. Lipman has been very helpful to me. I have dieted all my life, with my weight going up and down. I first meet Dr. Lipman when my husband starting going to him. I went along so I could be supportive and not sabotage my husband’s weight loss efforts. The first month, my husband lost 20 pounds and my dieting efforts resulted in 2 pounds. I decided to use Dr. Lipman as well. I was able to lose 30 pounds and have kept it off for over 2 years. (My husband lost 60 pounds.)
In the past, when I would visit a doctor I would often feel frustrated because the physician would give unrealistic advice, never understanding how hard it is to diet successfully. “Just eat less, exercise more.” Dr. Lipman was amazing, I didn’t feel as if I was a lazy person, or a failure if I didn’t meet a weight loss target goal. Instead he helped identify a problem and ways to move forward. He was great at giving tips on how to overcome plateaus in the weight loss process, giving tricks and tips to manage your food when you go out with friends or to restaurants, and how to keep the weight off. But most importantly I always felt that he was very supportive and interested in my success.
In my job, I patrol the Florida Turnpike and end up sitting in my car and cruiser for more than 12 hours a day! When I first Dr. Lipman I weighed more than 250 lbs and was gaining 30 lbs a year. Some of the weight gain was due to my change in assignment and the need to commute over 60 miles one way to get to my new station.
I had to stop working out because I simply did not have the time. Mandatory overtime did not help. Dr. Lipman asked me first to describe my eating habits. I told him I had only a cup of coffee for breakfast because I was not hungry and in a hurry in the early morning. I then had several cans of Pepsi during the morning and afternoon which I kept in a cooler I carried in the car. Often I could not eat lunch Until 2 or 3 pm when I pulled into burger restaurant at the rest stop and ordered a double hamburger with cheese, large French Fries and a large regular soda. I buy a snack or two for the driving. My wife makes me a healthy dinner of protein, carbs and salads.
The most important reasons for my weight gain were the sodas, skipping breakfast and the fast food lunches. I lost 20 lbs over the first 3 or 4 weeks on Dr. Lipman’s plan. I hope to continue my weight loss with all of the new foods I found in Dr. Lipman’s 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.
