New Published Diet Study Reveals Meal Replacements as Top Strategy for Weight Loss
Date:8/12/2009

e/" target="_new">University of Kentucky College of Medicine, the gold standard for weight loss in the health community is to achieve a 5 - 10% loss of initial body weight. "This study showed a weight loss between 15.8 % and 16.4% of initial body weight, both well above the gold standard the health community considers successful and the point at which health improvements are seen."

The Centers for Disease Control reports a dramatic increase in obesity in the U.S. over the past 20 years, with 2/3 of Americans now overweight or obese. Furthermore, there are more obese Americans than overweight or normal weight. Some common effects of obesity include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. If you are obese, losing just 5% to 10% of your body weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases.

HMR is currently the nation's leading provider of medically supervised weight management programs. HMR weight-loss programs are located in hospitals, medical centers, and university settings across the U.S. HMR also offers HMR at Home(R) Diet Kits with meal replacements and diet support materials delivered directly to dieters' homes.
