I know I get a lot of visitors that are following the HMR program exclusively. I really liked that program and it was successful for me while I was following it. I also love the idea of Weight Watchers. At the end of the day I sat down and realized that it is all a similar path to the same goal. Calories in and calories out. WW counts points, HMR and other programs use meal replacements to control the calories coming in. After many times back and forth I have decided that for me using HMR shakes and bars are a great way for me to control the calories/points in the context of Weight Watchers as a larger program. When I was doing HMR I would typically have 6 shakes a day ( 660 calories), 2 entrees (450-500 calories) and a bar (160 calories). The total of that intake very close to my point equivalent per day with Weight Watchers.
If you are following HMR, feel free to say hi! You will find tools and information that I have gathered about the program and I certainly have a lot of knowledge to offer...especially if you are doing it home.
Today, I had 2 HMR shakes for snack between my light breakfast and late lunch. For those of you not familiar with the shakes, one shake is 110 calories/1.5 g fat/ 13 carbs (1 of which is fiber)/ 14 grams of PROTEIN!!! I use a lactose free shake and typically double them up. I generally drink chocolate...and I really like them. What is nice about the shakes is that I can convert them into a chocolate pudding. One shake is 3 pts, 2 shakes is actually only 5 points. They are very filling.
Just wanted to share! You can check out my links on HMR and where I buy my shakes online. No need to join anything...its all just online order and shipping.
Good luck to all with your chosen paths! Hope to see you around the blog soon :)
