Diet Plans Q & A

by Scott D. Isaacs, MD

Is rapid weight loss unhealthy?

It’s a common misconception that quickly losing weight isn’t healthy, sustainable, and always leads to future weight regain. Numerous clinical studies demonstrate that people using weight-loss programs that promote fast initial weight loss can have more long-term success.

At Atlanta Endocrine Associates, Dr. Isaacs and his staff offer many weight-loss diets with this initial rapid weight loss phase. They’re a proud provider of the HMR Program, which was ranked No.1 Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Diets of 2017.

Which diet works best for fast weight loss?

The Health Management Resources® (HMR) Program was recently ranked as the No.1 Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet for 2017 by U.S. News & World Report. It’s not only a fast weight-loss program but also ranks among the most successful overall weight-loss diets.

There are several HMR programs, all focused on helping people lose weight quickly while teaching healthy lifestyle skills needed for long-term weight management.

For over 30 years, thousands of healthcare professionals in prestigious clinics, major medical centers, and hospitals have recommended HMR weight-loss programs. Atlanta Endocrine Associates takes pride in being one of HMR's top programs and for receiving many HMR Gold Standard Awards since beginning its programs in 2001.

HMR's comprehensive programs provide:

  • Weight-loss results that exceed any other ongoing weight-loss program
  • Superior results and program support including medical supervision
  • Delicious, nutritionally balanced weight-loss foods
  • Affordable diets with meal costs that are lower than most people's food budgets
  • Support tools to make your diet easier and recipes to increase variety
  • Option of weight-loss medications
  • An easy-to-follow, practical approach that teaches lifelong skills for healthy weight management

What is the HMR diet?

HMR — or “Health Management Resources” — is the leader in medical weight-loss programs, recommended by thousands of healthcare professionals around the country. For over 30 years, HMR has been helping dieters lose weight quickly while teaching them healthy lifestyle skills needed for long-term weight management.

Atlanta Endocrine Associates offers several HMR diets, including:

HMR Decision-Free Diet

Studies have shown that the fewer decisions you have to make about what to eat, the more likely it is you will lose weight. With a lot of structure, support, and medical supervision, the Decision-Free Diet is HMR’s premier program for people with 40 pounds or more to lose.

HMR Healthy Solutions Diet

This diet is ideal for anyone who wants to achieve significant weight loss and wants to include fruits and vegetables as a component. The meal plan is structured, while also providing a lot of variety. The average weight loss is 30-40 pounds, but many lose even more.

The best way to learn more about the HMR program is to attend a no-obligation informational session at Atlanta Endocrine Associates. Call to save your spot or to schedule a private informational session.

HMR Phase 2

Studies consistently show that people who lose more weight and keep off more weight with group support and accountability. Our maintenance groups are growing and there is a whole new group of folks for you to share your successes and struggles. If you are a former phase 2 patient and have noticed an upward trend on the scale lately, come back for an eight-week mini-blast and get back on track. Give us a call! We would love to see you back.

How much weight can I lose with an HMR Program?

With the HMR programs, patients at Atlanta Endocrine Associates lose an average of 35-60 pounds, and many people lose over 100 pounds.*

The Decision-Free® Program is HMR's premier program for people with 40 pounds or more to lose. In this program, there's a lot of structure and support, and medical supervision with the option of adding weight-loss medication are available.

Atlanta Endocrine Associates also has options for those with less weight to lose, or those interested in losing belly fat to reduce metabolic illness like insulin and leptin resistance. All participants receive support, encouragement, and coaching from an experienced staff.
