What You'll Eat
The Glycemic Index measures foods on a 100-point scale. Low-GI foods produce little or no fluctuations in our blood sugar or insulin levels. This is important because when your blood sugar rises quickly, your body increases insulin production, forcing the body into fat accumulation and storage.
Controlling the GI of your foods promotes normal blood-sugar levels and enables the body to stay in a fat-burning mode. By changing your diet with TLS, you will feel energized, alert and productive.
In the Zone Foods has joined Transitions by offering perfectly portioned, TLS-approved meals delivered right to your door, using only the finest organic ingredients. Choose from Fresh sea scallops, beef tenderloin, ahi tuna and much more.
Cooking Low GI
It doesn't take a scientist (or a chef) to start cooking low GI. With hundreds of delicious recipes in our database, there are endless combinations that require very little prep time and plenty of room to improvise. You won't be missing out on nutrition, variety or taste.
The Truth about Carbs
The simple fact is that not all carbohydrates are created equal, and an over-simplified low-carb diet does not represent a real solution, let alone a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. With TLS, carbohydrates are not the enemy; they are a perfectly healthy food group that is included with other foods in a manner that balances the quantities of all, and the quality of each. Quality carbohydrate intake, or the low GI lifestyle, is the basis of the TLS weight loss solution.
The TLS weight loss solution is meant to be a way of life, and it is certainly designed to include dining out, which is one of life's greatest pleasures. We offer a variety of useful tips for all types of restaurants and cuisine, and encourage you to use them as you like, depending on the occasion. No food is completely off limits at TLS, and enjoyment is a big part of the lifestyle.
