How At-Home Weight Loss Program Works

We are proud to team up with Health Management Resources (HMR) — a proven weight-loss system for effective nonsurgical weight loss. The HMR diet was named the No. 2 Best Fast Weight Loss Diet by U.S. News & World Report for 2021. It has ranked among the top three diet plans for seven years in a row.

Participants of our At-Home Weight Loss program have access to HMR’s Healthy Solutions Diet kit.

In addition, it provides motivating educational materials, progress charts, support guide and recipe book.

Follow Up With Longer-Term Weight Maintenance Plans

As hard as it is to lose weight, it is even harder to keep it off and stick to healthy habits. We want to not only encourage long-term weight maintenance, but also to help you permanently manage your health.

The HMR plan sets you up for weight loss success. Once you finish the plan, you can either transition to our weekly or monthly weight maintenance classes. This will help increase your chances of long-term success and enable you continue your health management journey on your own.
