Superfoods For Your Medical Weight Loss

Black Beans

Black beans are full of fiber and protein without all the added saturated fat from products like meat. Black beans will help keep you energized and feeling full between meals, so you resist the urge to snack on unhealthy goodies. Black beans can help balance our your cholesterol and is great for your heart health. They also can benefit your digestive system and prevent common ailments such as constipation and IBS.


Not only is this superfood extremely affordable, it is versatile. Many people become bored with the same food over and over, but with thousands of oat recipes, the possibilities are endless and delicious! Like black beans, oats contain an abundant amount of fiber which will help you feel full longer, preventing you from snacking at inappropriate times. Oats also contain the ability to boost metabolism and burn fat, which is what we want for your medical weight loss.


You love guacamole, right? Who doesn’t? The main and most delicious ingredient is the avocado. Avocados are high in healthy fat, which is key. These fruits are beneficial for your heart and help increase your energy. Another added benefit to the avocado is it helps you feel full longer. It also contains fiber and a great amount of protein.


Another delicious fruit to add to this superfood list is blueberries. Blueberries have tons of nutrients your body needs. They are great for your heart and can potentially lower your risk of heart disease, blasting the stubborn belly fat you hate and has anti-aging qualities. Mixing blueberries in with your oats or eating them frozen as a sweet treat will satisfy your craving and keep you on track with your medical weight loss.


You may have hated broccoli as a child, but now it should be one of your favorite foods! This versatile vegetable can be prepared many different ways and is what you want to be eating quite often. Broccoli is low in calories but full of minerals and vitamins you crave. Broccoli is also rich in fiber, helping you feel full. Having this for dinner will hold you over for the rest night, so you won’t have to worry about the temptation of the dreaded midnight snack!


Not only are almonds delicious, they are good for your medical weight loss! Almonds are regarded as another superfood that is rich in the fat you need. Almonds are high in vitamin E and magnesium. However, it is important to remember that almonds are high in calories, so portion control is essential. Eat almonds for a nice afternoon snack or with your oats. Almonds have an adequate amount of fiber which means you will feel full, even with only a few to enjoy.

Green Tea

Moving away from solid foods for a moment, green tea is a wonderful drink, that isn’t water, that can be thoroughly enjoyed during your medical weight loss. Green tea helps your body stay hydrated and will keep you feeling full. It also aids in fat burning and getting rid of calories. The best thing about green tea is it does contain caffeine, so if you are feeling sluggish during the day, you don’t need to feel guilty indulging in this beverage!

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
