The nutritionally complete plan simplifies food decisions by using only HMR® foods (shakes, entrées, cereal, and nutrition bars) and unlimited fruits and vegetables. The plan follows a 3/2/5 structure designed to keep people feeling full throughout the day. The daily plan includes at least 3 shakes, 2 entrees, and 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. People are encouraged to eat as many of these foods as they like to avoid hunger.
While losing weight, people practice developing skills in three specific areas:
– How to eat more fruits and vegetables
– How to increase physical activity
– How to make healthier food choices
These are the lifestyle skills that will help keep the weight off, as well as help reduce the risk factors for the development of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer and other chronic diseases.
