Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) January 6, 2005
Market America, Inc. and Dr. Shari Lieberman, renowned author of ÂDare to Lose: 4 Simple Steps to a Better BodyÂ and the best-selling book ÂThe Real Vitamin and Mineral Book,Â today announce a partnership to develop TransitionsÂ, a comprehensive lifestyle system based on the latest nutrition science. Transitions is designed to encourage healthy living and diet according to Glycemic Index, a Âgood-carb,Â low-fat answer to the diet debate.
ÂAmericans have gotten caught in an endless cycle of dieting, trying the newest diet on the market,Â said Lieberman. ÂWhat the designers of these diets do not tell consumers is that these diets can actually make you fatter. Fad diets are a temporary fix to a lifelong problem. People need to change their lifestyle in order to lose weight and keep it off. You cannot avoid bread and pasta forever.Â
Transitions, unlike many diets currently on the market, does not cut out carbohydrates or ask consumers to starve themselves. Instead, it teaches healthy eating according to Glycemic Index, stress-reduction and regular exercise. The system includes:
Â Lifestyle journal to help chart progress, provide healthy living information and motivation
Â Exercise and stress-reduction tips to enhance weight management
Â Delicious, portion-controlled meals designed to increase healthy eating
Â Healthy shakes and bars for nourishing snacks
Â Nutritional supplements tailored to help reduce cravings and promote health
A low Glycemic Index diet minimizes food-induced blood sugar spikes. Those spikes in blood sugar can result in higher insulin levels, causing the body to store fat. Low Glycemic Index foods include fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins. These foods are staples in the diets of indigenous and tribal people around the world where obesity is virtually nonexistent.
ÂMarket America is extremely pleased to have Dr. Lieberman on board with us,Â said James Ridinger, Market AmericaÂs president and CEO. ÂHer work as an author and scientist is impressive. The current craze of low-carb, high-protein diets is unsustainable in the real world where we all struggle to eat healthily. Transitions is not a diet and can truly help people change their health situation.Â
The Transitions Lifestyle System is available now but will officially launch in February 2005 at Market AmericaÂs Leadership School conference in Miami. Dietary supplements designed to aid in weight management are currently available through Market AmericaÂs more than 100,000 distributors.
