Weight Management

For people who are overweight, effective weight management can reduce the risk of hypertension, heart problems and type 2 diabetes. Increasing exercise and eating a healthy diet can significantly improve quality of life.

At Altru, we can support your weight loss goals. Our HMR® Program is an intensive weight-loss and lifestyle-change program utilizing meal replacements and behavior change designed to help you lose weight fast and build healthier routines that last. Our team’s goal is to help you eat well, be more active, and stay on track, even when life gets hectic.
