The Healthy Weigh

Saint Francis Health and Wellness Center proudly offers “The Healthy Weigh” weight-loss program from HMR® (Health Management Resources). HMR is a clinically-proven diet and lifestyle-change program specially designed to help people who want to lose a lot of weight.

More than just a diet, HMR’s all-inclusive plans also provide the education, support, and accountability to help you make and keep healthier lifestyle habits.

Fast, Motivating Weight Loss

For the past four years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the program created by HMR and offered by Saint Francis as a No.1 Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet. Losing weight quickly is motivating, and can help you stick to the diet longer.

How the Program Works

  • Lose weight quickly – Take a break from food decisions and stay full with a nutritionally-complete plan using HMR weight-loss foods (fruits and vegetables included on some plans.)
  • Learn new skills – Using the principles of behavioral science, learn how to make new routines around healthier eating and physical activity.
  • Get coaching and support – Weekly classes, digital resources, and a mobile app provide extra support and accountability.
  • Maintain after the diet – Reduce reliance on HMR foods and transition to a long-term healthy eating plan.
