Effective programs that meet
your individual needs.

The Hernried Center is here to help you lose weight—fast and finally. We individualize our New Direction or Quick 20+ program to your unique needs for fast, lasting medical weight loss.

Fast, safe and lasting weight loss is possible!

At The Hernried Center, we help you lose weight quickly and safely—and without hunger—through nutritional ketosis. Ketosis (commonly known as “keto”) is a metabolic state in which the body burns fat reserves instead of glucose. With medically perfected meal replacements that taste great (and are only available from a doctor), we shift your body away from its natural resistance to losing weight so you can drop pounds at a fast yet healthy rate…and with higher energy levels!


Covered by insurance. Committed to affordability.

Effective weight loss shouldn’t drain your finances. Our programs are covered by Medicare and most PPO insurance plans. Costs vary by plan, but most people only pay out-of-pocket for copays, co-insurance and meal replacements that compare to average food costs.
