Lose weight fast and build healthier routines that last with HMR® (Health Management Resources), 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, all-inclusive HMR 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 Northwestern Medicine 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.
