How Much Weight You Can Expect to Lose in HMR if You Stay “In the Box”

The short answer is you can lose a lot of weight fast.

Staying in the box means being fully compliant with the HMR weight loss program. And when this is done, you can expect to have consistent weight loss week after week. The weight loss numbers in the chart below show you what you can expect to lose on the HMR program each week.

240                        7.0 lbs. (2.3 lbs./wk)            8.5 lbs. (2.8 lbs./wk)

220                        5.8 lbs. (1.9 lbs./wk)            7.1 lbs. (2.4 lbs./wk)

200                        4.6 lbs. (1.5 lbs./wk)            5.8 lbs. (1.9 lbs./wk)

180                        3.4 lbs. (1.1 lbs./wk)            4.5 lbs. (1.5 lbs./wk)

160                        2.2 lbs. (0.7 lbs./wk)             3.2 lbs. (1.1 lbs./wk)

140                        1.0 lbs. (0.3 lbs./wk)             2.0 lbs. (0.6 lbs./wk)

The estimated weight losses in the chart above are benchmarks based on what a person who is fully compliant with the program could expect to lose taking weight, gender and diet prescription into consideration. The calculations assume an average of 40 meal replacements and 40 servings of vegetables/fruits per week and 2,000 calories physical activity per week. The daily calories required to maintain weight loss are estimated by multiplying body weight by 10 cal./lb. for women and 11 cal./lb. for men. Expected 3-week weight change is calculated by taking the difference between the daily calorie requirement for 21 days and the approximate calorie intake/expenditure based on program compliance assumptions above and dividing by 3500 to estimate pounds lost.
