Medical Weight Loss: The HMR Difference

Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows that it’s a commitment to a lifestyle change. Altering habits can be difficult and many people struggle to stick with a new routine. Having a goal can provide focus, like qualifying for a needed surgery or going on a vacation pain free.

The good news is, if you want to lose weight and begin working towards your best self you don’t have to do it alone. With so many weight loss programs to choose from, how do you know what program is right for you?

In order to choose the best option for you, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Are you ready to start changing your lifestyle habits?
  2. Would you prefer to have a support group you can lean on? Or would you prefer to forge your own path and do it by yourself?
  3. Do you like to cook/be in the kitchen? Or does a structured, pre-packaged meal plan sound better to you?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, the HMR Medical Weight Loss program might be right for you.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is the process of losing weight with the support, coaching, and guidance of a healthcare professional, like a doctor.

The HMR Medical Weight Loss Program uses experienced health educators that focus on teaching you the behavioral skills needed to manage your weight, for life. Our team uses their knowledge and medical experience to create an individualized and realistic plan that meets your unique circumstances.

What are the meal plans like?

The program offers two meal plans to choose from, the Decision-Free Plan and the Healthy Solutions Plan. The Decision-Free Plan is very structured; participants are medically supervised and only use the HMR prepared meals and shakes. The Healthy Solutions Plan is more flexible, allowing participants to use both the HMR prepared foods as well as some fresh fruits and vegetables. (This plan is not medically supervised.)

Decision-Free Plan

  • HMR Foods Only
  • Medically Supervised
  • NO Grocery Store Foods
  • Daily Calories = 800

Choose from a nutrition plan of 5 shakes daily or 3 shakes and 2 entrées daily.

Healthy Solutions Plan

  • HMR Foods + Fruits & Vegetables
  • NOT Medically Supervised
  • Daily Calories = 1,200

Nutritional plan includes 3 shakes, 2 entrées, and a total of 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables daily.

Participants have benefited from this program not only losing weight but many are able to stop taking certain medications and get back to living life. Read what our participants have to say about the program:

“I have removed all my diabetes and blood pressure medications, controlling both conditions with diet and exercise. There have been many positive benefits that I have enjoyed with the HMR program. The staff understands the struggles that come along at different times during your journey, and they have strategies to help you through. I would highly recommend the HMR Program to anyone who is committed to making this the time they lose the weight for good!”

“In the 18 months I have continued in the program I have learned and practiced how to deal with the ups and downs of weight maintenance. I no longer take diabetes, high blood pressure, or cholesterol medications. Good health and weight control is a conscious decision. I will always work at maintaining my weight and health. HMR gave me the opportunity to start living in the same but new and improved version of me.”

Rebecca C., lost over 65 pounds

Our program accepts people age 18 and older and can support participants with complex medical issues, like diabetes and high blood pressure. A referral from your doctor isn’t required to join the program, however, they are accepted and encouraged.
