This program is not a diet in the conventional sense
of the word. It is, rather, a health program that shows
you how to lose weight by maximizing your health
with- out so-called dieting. Whereas most weight loss
diets rely upon deprivation and rigorous willpower,
the Hawaii-Diet™ Program utilizes your natural
enjoyment of eating. It shows you how to replace
unhealthy, fat- promoting foods with healthy,
delicious foods which satisfy in every way.
Or perhaps you are more concerned about your
health than about your weight. Maybe you are battling
a health problem such as high blood pressure, high
choles- terol, or maybe a touch of diabetes. Or you
may just not feel up to par and you want your health
back. In any case, the HawaiiDiet™ makes it possible
for you to eat all the delicious food you want, of any
ethnic cuisine, while still losing weight and restoring
1. The HawaiiDiet™ Is a Whole
The HawaiiDiet™ includes the enhancement of the
health of the whole person, including spiritual,
mental, emotional and physical aspects, through the
focus on food and diet. It includes exercise, stress
reduction, and a perspective on life and health based
on an understanding of universal principles as
embodied in traditional Hawaiian concepts and a
faith in God.
2. The HawaiiDiet™ Is a No-
deprivation Eating Program.
There is no calorie counting or portion size
restriction on the HawaiiDiet™. It is an "all you can
eat" health program that emphasizes the type of food
eaten rather than the quantity of food eaten. In fact,
in our studies, people wind up eating MORE food than
ever and still lose weight. For more information about
the science behind this phenomenon, please refer to
my books: Dr. Shintani's Eat More, Weigh Less® Diet
and Dr. Shintani's Eat More, Weigh Less® Cookbook.
3. The HawaiiDiet™ Integrates
Modern Science with Ancient
The HawaiiDiet™ employs the best of both worlds: it seeks
to integrate ancient wisdom with modern science. They
knew something that we are only beginning to relearn.
Therefore, while the HawaiiDiet™ is grounded in good
science, it looks to ancient wisdom found in traditional
Hawaiian principles and employs this wisdom as a compass
for the present HawaiiDiet™ Program, as well as for future
4. The HawaiiDiet™ Is Based Upon
Traditional Eating Patterns.
In my research into traditional diets, I began to see
patterns established with regard to the traditional/
ancient diets of the healthiest, longest-living cultures.
With few exceptions, the healthiest traditional
cultures ate a diet similar to that of the ancient
Hawaiians in macronutrient content, and also
practiced lifestyle principles similar to those of
5. The HawaiiDiet™ Is Not "One-
Diet- Fits-All" Program.
Because the HawaiiDiet™ is based on traditional
diets from many cultures, it recognizes that some
individuals may be adapted to different dietary
patterns than others. For example, a higher fat
Mediterranean- style diet may be acceptable in
individuals who are adapted to such a diet.
6. The HawaiiDiet™ Uses Foods
That Are Commonly Available.
Because the HawaiiDiet™ embraces traditional
eating patterns from cultures around the world,
the choices of foods are virtually endless.
7. The HawaiiDiet™ Is High in Mass
The "Mass Index of Food," or "SMI," (which stands for
the Shintani Mass Index of Food) is a new concept in
the evaluation of the weight-loss-inducing effect of
food. It is also known as the "Eat More Index," or
"EMI," described in my other book, the original Dr.
Shintani's Eat More, Weigh Less® Diet.
