Different From Any Other Diet
We recognize first and foremost that a weight problem is a health problem. That's why the HMR Program is offered exclusively through hospitals and other healthcare facilities. We also realize how hard it is to lose and maintain weight in today's "high fat, high calorie" culture. That's why we approach the task of weight loss with a commitment that goes well beyond "traditional" dieting.
Weight Management = Health Management
At HMR, we like to say that weight management = health management. In other words, the behaviors we teach for weight loss and weight-loss maintenance (physical activity, meal replacements, and vegetables and fruits) are the very same ones that have beneficial effects on overall health.
Keep the Weight Off
Of course, any low calorie diet can help you lose weight. The challenge is keeping it off after the diet is over. We see successful weight management as a matter of acquiring new skills, not just learning new information. We'll teach these skills in specially designed weight loss classes, and then again in our extensive Phase 2 program. We'll work closely with you as you learn and practice these new skills until they become an automatic part of your daily life.
Your Health Is in Your Hands®
"I’ve seen the toll that excess weight has taken on my patients, who often require even more pills to control the problems caused by obesity. Losing weight with HMR, many patients are coming off their medications and regaining their hope and their health.”
