Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) June 6, 2005
In recent years, diet marketers told dieters to obsess over the number of carbs rather than how those carbs affected their bodies. Now that the low-carb craze has waned, dieters have realized that simply reducing carbs is unsustainable and many have given up their efforts. Enter the low-glycemic-index diet, a scientific method of eating according to how food-induced blood sugar spikes can prevent weight loss.
ÂWhat dieters realized after the low-carb bubble burst is that simple fixes to weight problems do not work,Â said Shari Lieberman, Ph.D. and best-selling author. ÂFad diets will work for nothing more than short-term weight loss. Keeping the weight off is the challenge since low-carb or no-carb diets are flawed from the beginning.Â
Lieberman has touted the low-glycemic index to clients of her 20-year, clinical nutrition practice in New York. In 2004, she partnered with Market America to develop the Transitions Lifestyle SystemÂ, a low-glycemic system that helps dieters change more than eating habits.
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, meal planning and motivational support.
Â Exercise and stress-reduction tips to enhance weight management.
Â Delicious, portion-controlled meals designed to maintain healthy eating habits.
Â Healthy shakes and bars for nourishing, On-The-GoÂ snacks.
Â Nutritional supplements tailored to help reduce cravings and promote health.
ÂThe Transitions system was built on years of scientific research on low-glycemic-index diets,Â said Lieberman. ÂI want dieters to understand that simple changes in how they live their lives can make huge changes in their health. Small changes in eating habits can lead not only to weight reduction but drastic reductions in the risks for many other conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.Â
The Transitions Lifestyle System is available exclusively through Market AmericaÂs independent distributors in the U.S. More information is available at transitionslife.com.
