Why is it important to keep food records?
Food records help you to keep track of what you are eating. It is very difficult to remember what you had, or what you did not have. They keep us accountable, and offer valuable information for planning processes and strategies.
How much water should I drink?
You should get a minimum of 64 ounces of fluid every day. That’s eight 8-oz. glasses of non-caloric beverages. The best bet is to make sure most of this comes from water. There are instances when you may need more. For example, when you are physically active you may need to replenish what you have lost during activity. It is important to check with your doctor regarding the correct amount for you if you have medical conditions that cause water retention.
What makes the HMR® entrees shelf stable?
The answer is retort packaging. Think in terms of the canning process – only the entrees are done in plastic trays where food is cooked at high temperatures to seal and cook products in their natural juices.
What do you mix HMR® shakes with?
Water. The preferred method seems to be mixing water and ice in a blender to make a thick, filling, shake. You can also stir it with a spoon to make a pudding, or just shake it in a shaker cup. There is also a recipe book for the product that will give you many more ideas such as adding flavorings (or fruits if on Healthy Solutions®). Overall, you can add any non-caloric beverage to the shakes including diet sodas or even coffee.
What if while I am on one of your programs, I feel hungry?
We would advise that you simply have more of what is on your program. Because the items are low in calorie and high in nutrition, we encourage you to have more. Most people are used to limiting themselves when trying to lose weight, but that is not our method. We encourage you to have another shake, or eat another fruit or vegetable to feel full and satisfied. Remember: More is Better.
How often should I take the vitamins that come in the HMR® Shake box?
If you are on the medically supervised program, and doing only meal replacements, then you need to take two per day. Remember that you must be medically supervised by and HMR program if you are only using meal replacements.
