Recipes and Resources Pages - Community Activities
HMR has created the "Recipes and Resources Pages" to share information and the experiences of the many people who have participated in HMR Programs, used HMR Products, or in some other way have brought, or would like to bring, HMR's approach to weight management and healthy lifestyles into their lives. You may view the Recipes and Resources Pages and share the content on these pages without creating an Account. However, you will need an Account and a Community Use ID with your first name and the initial of your last name - you may also provide a picture - in order to engage in certain activities on the Recipes and Resources Pages, such as posting, amending and deleting comments from time to time, to also amending and deleting those comments from time to time, "liking" content, and contributing to or starting Forums (collectively, "Community Activities"). Currently, the Recipes and Resources Pages are not allowing new user submitted recipes, success stories or articles, but the pages do contain many of these items we have brought over from past websites sponsored by HMR.
The focus of the Recipes and Resources Pages is on building a relationship among HMR-connected people and those who many be interested in HMR to further our mission (to improve the health of others). As part of building an HMR community, you will have the opportunity to submit ideas for, and user-generated content on, HMR sponsored Forums, etc. It is our hope that you will get support from the HMR content and from the content submitted by other users.

User-submitted content will be subject to review. In some cases, HMR may make minor edits. HMR will remove any user-generated content that it feels is inappropriate or conflicts with the rights of those who own such material. In doing so, HMR will use its own judgment consistent with the spirit of the Sites. We know that the vast majority of users understand the importance of demonstrating respect for others as part of using the Sites.
