How easy is it to make a quick meal at home? How
easy is it to dine on the inventions of some of the best chefs in
Paradise? In the recipe section, you'll find a whole range of
dishes, from simple to gourmet.
In addi- tion to home-cooking recipes and fast food
recipes, you'll also find dishes from Roy Yamaguchi,
Peter Merriman, and Mark Ellman — all world-class
chefs. You'll also find recipes from some of Hawaii's
family and consumer science teachers, who also offer
up a cornucopia of home-spun dishes and first-class
cuisine. And you'll find delicious, traditional foods from
all cultures — a reflection of the wonderful diversity of
Hawaii's multicultural society.
Most of the recipes are selected for their ease of preparation
and for the availability of the ingredients. Whether you're a
seasoned cook or just a beginner, you'll find something here
that works for you.
You can make your recipe choices based on the HawaiiDiet™
Pyramid, and based upon the "SMI." With the range of
recipes and these two handy program aids, you'll soon find
yourself eating mouth-watering meals based on many
cultures' cuisines from Hawaiian- Pacific, to European, to
Asian, to the rest of the world.
The Results of
In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the
HawaiiDiet™, we put a number of community leaders,
including the Governor and some representatives of the
Native Hawaiian community of Papakolea Homestead, on
the HawaiiDiet™ in a 3-week program.
In 3 weeks, the group weight loss for the 23 participants was
249.25 pounds. Average weight loss per person was 10.8
pounds. The highest weight loss was 21.75 pounds.
Average cholesterol decreased 23.6% (from an average of
205 mg/dl to 157 mg/dl). At the beginning of the program,
there were 11 people with cholesterol over 200. At the end
of the program there was only one person whose cholesterol
was over 200.
Average triglycerides decreased 36.3% from an average of
238 mg/dl to 152 mg/dl (normal range - 50 mg/dl to 150
mg/dl). One person's triglycerides decreased 863 mg/dl
from 988 mg/dl to 125 mg/dl. Another person's triglycerides
decreased from 617 mg/dl to 93 mg/dl.
Blood sugar in those with diabetes or borderline diabetes
fell an average of 38%, from an average of 177 mg/dl to 122
mg/dl. This drop resulted even though the four participants
on medication for diabetes were able to reduce their
medications, including one who got off 90 units of insulin.
Average blood pressure fell from 130/79 to 120/75. This
resulted even after eliminating one person's blood pressure
medication when his blood pressure dropped to normal
levels, and also after reducing the blood pressure medication
of two other people.
I invite you to use this book to apply the timeless principles
of health embodied in traditional Hawaiian concepts
through your diet and lifestyle and make them your own, at
least in terms of your diet and lifestyle and strive to apply
them to other aspects of your life. It is an important first
step to healing ourselves, and healing the world.
