How it Works
Other programs tell you what they think works; With TLS, it's all about what works for you. TLS is about education and
implementation, not limitation. The only limits in TLS are those you put on yourself. Anything is possible when you Live
TLS Weight Management Solution encompasses low-glycemic impact eating, behavior modification and body
composition, offering an extensive plan that covers everything you'll need to get fit and trim, not just a set of foods you
can and cannot eat. In fact, a big part of TLS is helping you make healthy choices while still eating a normal, diverse diet.
TLS teaches you about low-GI impact eating and how to identify new favorite foods, creating new, healthy behaviors,
and improving body composition to get your metabolism operating in high gear. So it's time to get off the diet roller
coaster, and time to start Living the Lifestyle.
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
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
Traditional diets focus solely on the number on the scale with most of the weight loss coming from water and muscle.
TLS Weight Loss Solution, however, focuses on loss of body fat. TLS Weight Loss Solution emphasizes on obtaining
healthy body composition to increase the amount of muscle vs. fat (muscle dictates metabolism). To obtain a healthy
body composition, TLS Weight Loss Solution emphasizes the importance of combining low-glycemic eating with exercise.
As the saying goes, seeing is believing. TLS enables you to track your progress on the fitness front-keep track of different
routines, total workout times daily and weekly, and most importantly, your upward path as improvements come along!

successful lifestyle change. After assessing your current status and ability, you can choose your priorities and draw up
your best schedule with this interactive tool.
Recommended Exercise Plans

Journal, all designed to keep you motivated and let you know just how far you've come!

It's a simple fact that repeating the same actions will deliver the same results; if you do what you've always done, you're
going to get what you've always got-for a lot of frustrated people, that's nowhere. For any weight-loss program to
succeed, change must occur. Change usually requires you to overcome fear; once you do, your life changes for the
better. The TLS Weight Loss System makes it a point to address this very important aspect of success to make sure past
mistakes are not repeated.
