"Successful weight loss is not only about losing pounds quickly, it's about creating changes around eating and physical activity that you can sustain over the long term," said Carol Addy, M.D. MMSc, Chief Medical Officer at HMR. "By keeping the plan simple, people can lose weight quickly while building the skills they need for long-term weight management."

Ideal for people who want to lose 20 or more pounds, the HMR Program can be followed at home, either as a self-guided option through the HMR app, or with the support of group coaching by phone, free with sign up. The Program is also available with more intensive in-person support at select hospitals and medical facilities across the country.

How the Plan Works

The plan follows a 3/2/5 structure designed to keep people feeling full throughout the day. The daily plan includes at least 3 shakes, 2 entrees, and 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. People are encouraged to eat as many of these foods as they like to avoid hunger.

While losing weight, people practice developing skills in three specific areas:

These are the lifestyle skills that will help keep the weight off, as well as help reduce the risk factors for the development of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer and other chronic diseases.
