Heathly Weigh/HMR Recognized

HMR Weight Management Services (HMR) diet program created by HMR and utilized by Saint Francis’ Healthy Weigh program has been named the No. 2 Best Weight-Loss Diet in U.S. News & World Reports’ Best Diets of 2015. The ranking was based on both short and long-term weight-loss ratings of the HMR Program.

HMR’s programs focus on integrating diet, physical activity and healthy lifestyle skills through weekly coaching. This is the first time that HMR’s diet program has been included in the annual rankings list. HMR was evaluated against 34 other diets in categories including easiness to follow, ability to produce short and long-term weight loss, nutritional completeness, safety, and potential to prevent and manage diabetes and heart disease.

During the ranking process, reporters and editors from U.S. News & World Report created in-depth profiles of each diet, and a panel of nationally recognized experts on diet, nutrition, obesity, food psychology, diabetes and heart disease rated the diets and their effectiveness.
