The number of overweight Americans currently stands at record levels. This increase in obesity in turn has created a population experiencing significant medical issues triggered or made worse by obesity like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and others. To counter and even prevent some of these problems, St. Bernards created the Center for Weight Loss. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 200, this is the place to start. We offer a number of options including a complete non-surgical, medically supervised weight and health management program, as well as elective weight loss surgery. Only you, together with your physician, can decide which alternative is right for you.
More than 34 percent of Americans are currently considered clinically obese, making obesity the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. While certainly a quality of life issue, morbid obesity is also a very complex medical disease with serious economic, social and psychological impacts. It is also the cause of a number of medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea and joint disease.
St. Bernards is pleased to present Health Management Resources (HMR®), the leading medically supervised weight loss program in the United States. Offered in major hospitals and medical centers across the country, more than 1 million participants have lost weight and learned the skills necessary for lifelong weight management through the program.
We offer an intensive, complete medically supervised program for accelerated weight loss, or a more moderate diet plan with minimal oversight by our weight loss professionals. Both programs focus on teaching lifestyle skills for weight management, increasing physical activity, eating right and improving overall health.
Medically Supervised Specifically designed for those who need to lose 30 pounds or more, this program strictly uses HMR meal replacement shakes, entrees and snacks in place of groceries. An initial comprehensive medical evaluation and ongoing follow-up is included.
Healthy Solutions This option promotes slower weight loss without direct medical supervision. Participants' diet will include HMR meal replacement shakes, entrees and snacks, but will also incorporate vegetables and fruits.
