The Medically Supervised Decision-Free® Diet Program is designed for patients who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher or need to lose more than 30 pounds. The weight loss diet is made completely of HMR® Shakes, Entrees and meal replacement products. Average weight loss is 50-60* pounds. Many people lose over 100 pounds. Medical supervision is provided weekly by our physicians and nurse practitioners. Weekly classes and phone calls with our dietitians and health educators provide support and coaching for new behaviors. The program is particularly appropriate for individuals with medical problems, such as diabetes or hypertension related to obesity. Long-term maintenance skills are emphasized.

Maintenance Programs

Whether you lose weight on our Decision-Free® diet, Healthy Solutions® or HMR at Home® diet program, participation in our Maintenance program is key to keeping the weight off. After weight loss, participants attend weekly maintenance classes where they continue to receive support while practicing additional strategies for successful long term management. Research shows that participation in a maintenance program after initial weight loss is linked with success in keeping the weight off. Classes are held at our Irvine office or via conference call.
