The Doctors’ Weight Management Program offered at Sansum Clinic named a No. 1 “Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet” and No. 2 “Best Weight-Loss Diet” for Second Year in a Row by U.S. News & World Report.

Santa Barbara, Calif. – U.S. News and Reports has named the HMR diet offered by Sansum Clinic’s Doctors’ Weight Management Program the number one “Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet”. It has also been named the number 2 “Best Weight-Loss Diet” for a second year in a row.

The HMR Program used at Sansum Clinic’s Doctors’ Weight Management Program focuses on helping people lose weight quickly while teaching the healthy lifestyle skills needed for long-term weight management. This is the first year U.S. News has published the Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet category. The program also held its position as the No. 2 Best Weight-Loss Diet in the annual rankings list for the second year in a row.

During the ranking process, reporters and editors from U.S. News & World Report created in-depth profiles of 38 diets. A panel of nationally recognized experts on diet, nutrition, obesity, food psychology, diabetes and heart disease rated the diets on their effectiveness.

“On the HMR Program, our patients can lose weight without feeling hungry. Our programs achieve fast weight loss in a livable way by encouraging people to eat more and stay satisfied,” said Donna Gill, Manager of the program at Sansum Clinic.  “We also offer patients the guidance of Health Educators which makes it easier to stick to the program in the short-term, and over the long haul.”

Angela Haupt, Senior Health & Wellness Editor for U.S. News & World Report explained that the Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet category is for dieters who may have short-term weight goals and need options to accomplish that in a healthy way.

Sansum Clinic has offered the HMR program since 1986 to those in the area who are interested in losing weight in an effective and controlled environment.

“The Doctors' Weight Management program gave me the confidence and skills so that when I would slip up I wouldn’t give up completely.", shared patient Amanda Frazier, who lost over 110 pounds on the program. "I have a new attitude and tools from the program. My entire mindset has changed since my participation and I am confident that I will never go back to the way I used to live my life."

The Doctors’ Weight Management Program offers comprehensive HMR programs. With the guidance of Health Educators, patients choose between the in-clinic programs, Decisions-Free Diet or Healthy Solutions Diet. The clinic also offers HMR’s Healthy Solutions program as a home delivery option.
