The best option for medically-supervised weight loss

What is the HMR weight-loss program?

HMR is a nationally-renowned plan that has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report for four consecutive years as the number one fast weight-loss program.

It is an intensive weight-loss and lifestyle change program designed to help people lose weight and build a healthier routine that they can stick with.

HMR includes a variety of dietary options appropriate for anyone wanting to lose 10–200 or more pounds. All variations of the program include individual coaching and ongoing maintenance support from our team of certified health coaches.

What are the key components of the HMR weight-loss program?

Mindful nutrition with meal replacements. The HMR program uses meal replacements with full meals, shakes, and nutrition bars that can be used in place of other meals and snacks.

Your customized plan will include a mix of meal replacements together with mindful eating of fruits and vegetables in conjunction with a plan for getting regular physical activity.

Medically-managed by a trained primary care provider. It's hard to achieve lasting weight-loss without comprehensive support, which is a critical component of the HMR program.

Many patient journeys will begin in an appointment with a primary care provider, who has received special training to administer and help guide participants through this program. As someone who has gone through her own weight-loss journey, we has firsthand knowledge of what challenges you'll face along the way.
