The HMR diet is not as popular as it should be, it has been around for over 30 years, and people have been obtaining phenomenal results with this diet. These HMR weight loss results proves that this diet really works.
What Is The HMR Diet?
The HMR (Health Management Resources) diet was designed by a behavioral psychologist, to enable quick weight loss by primarily using meal replacement shakes, bars and prepared entrees. Fresh fruit and vegetables are also included in the diet plan. The HMR diet is broken down into two phases, the 1st phase focuses on achieving your weight loss goal, while the 2nd phase focuses on maintaining that achieved weight.
The HMR program discourages alcohol consumption, as well as other foods that aren’t part of their meal replacements. Dieters are encouraged to avoid restaurants and any activities involving food during the weight loss phase of the diet.
The HMR program provides you with about 1,200 calories worth of food per day (based on their “3-2-5” guideline), which include:
- 3 HMR shakes
- 2 HMR prepared meals
- 5 cups of fruit & vegetables
If you strictly follow their guidelines without falling off the bandwagon, you can expect to lose 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kg) per week. Dieters have the option of eating additional HMR shakes, meals or fruits & vegetables, if they still feel hungry after a meal. Calories per meal range from: (160 to 280) cal.
Participants of the program get to choose the flavors of their shakes and prepared meals. Entrees include some of the following dishes; turkey chili with beans, cheese & basil ravioli with tomato sauce, chicken soup and mushroom risotto. You’ll also be provided with 4 types of protein bars to snack on between meals. Calories per bar range from: (150 to 170) cal and they each contain 10 grams of protein.
The HMR program eliminates the need for cooking and food planning, it was developed to be a short-term solution to achieve weight loss very quickly, and it’s not advisable to be on this diet for more than a year, as you’ll be mainly consuming shakes and frozen meals.
The HMR diet truly helps you lose weight really fast, if you strictly adhere to the guidelines and rules, once your weight goal has been achieved, you are then taught on how to maintain that weight.
