Thank you, thank you! I just discovered your blog and am starting HMR. I had tried it before and lost about 30 pounds but went off the program. Hoping I can stick with it this time to avoid gastric bypass in 6 months. Ready to do that too, though. I like you did, have a large amount to lose. So glad to find you!
Hi, I definitely recommend HMR over Optifast. Of course, as with any diet, it only works if you follow it religiously. But of the medically-monitored programs, I find that HMR is vastly superior to any other. Good luck!
