62 lbs in 21 weeks

Average weight loss for patients after 21 weeks on the HMR diet program. Data collected from three groups of patients treated at the HMR Program, University of Kentucky. HMR's medical research, weight loss, and weight maintenance data have been published in several leading medical and nutritional journals.

HMR Research

Research is a Cornerstone of the HMR Program

The HMR Program is based on the most current scientific research in the medical, nutritional, and behavioral literature along with over 25 years of data from HMR weight-loss programs. HMR works with a number of well-known and well-respected university researchers in the field of weight management. Through this research-based approach, HMR patients are able to participate in the most successful treatment available. We have published extensive research in peer-reviewed journals over the past 2 decades. Most recently, we have published more than 20 research studies that assess effective weight loss, weight maintenance, and the prevention and treatment of medical risk factors related to obesity.

HMR regularly collects data from each of its treatment options to evaluate and improve the program. These data allow HMR to report the average results for participants in the program, rather than just anecdotal stories like many other weight-loss programs. HMR also collects data through studies with outside researchers designed to assess different aspects of the program. HMR’s results are shared with program participants and other health professionals, and are published in some of the leading medical and nutritional journals.

On an ongoing basis, we can document the average weight losses and health benefits experienced by program participants. Recent data have indicated that the average weight loss in the clinic-based programis 35–60 pounds, depending upon the treatment option chosen. Many participants lose much more more.

We are committed to research and to advancing knowledge in the field of weight loss and weight management.
