(Daytona Beach, Florida) Jan. 12, 2022 – For anyone with a big weight-loss goal for a January diet resolution, losing weight slowly may not be the best option. It could take months or years to reach a goal weight, and it’s hard to stay on any “diet” for that long.
Instead of resorting to a fad or crash diet, studies have shown that following a lifestyle change program promoting fast initial weight loss leads to greater weight loss overall, and better long-term outcomes.* For those looking for a fast, healthy weight-loss option, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the program created by HMR (Health Management Resources) and offered by the Lighter Lifestyles Weight Management Program at Halifax Health (https://www.hmrprogram.com/halifaxlearn) as a Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet for 2022 for the seventh consecutive year.
Motivation Matters – Jennifer K. joined the HMR plan and lost 110# over the next 14 months¹. “The weight came off quickly, which was super motivating. That’s the key reason I could stick to the plan. And the more weeks I stayed on the plan, the more weight I was able to lose.”
According to Program Dietitian and Spokesperson Joy Midkiff, “There’s nothing magical about the program that gets the fast weight loss.” She explains, “The plan is designed so one never goes hungry, which is the most important thing. If you are not feeling deprived, it’s easier to stay on the plan longer, which leads to more weight loss in a short period of time.”
Lifestyle Change is Non-Negotiable – Midkiff says that whether you lose weight quickly or slowly, one won’t be able to maintain the weight loss without making some lifestyle changes, specifically related to physical activity and eating more colorful vegetables and fruits. She adds, “That’s why lifestyle-change education and coaching is core to all HMR plans. The plan helps get the weight off quickly. As you’re losing weight, you’re learning and practicing new skills around healthier eating and exercise.” To learn more, visit www.halifaxhealth.org/HMR or call 386.425.4031 to set up a free and no obligation information session.
