  3. 3. In many parts of the Native Hawaiian community, there is great poverty from a material perspective. But the people there are also blessed with a great wealth from a spiritual and cultural perspective. The material poverty sets the stage for poor health. If nurtured properly, spiritual and cultural strength may set the stage for the recovery of good health if applied properly.

  5. 5. During the course of this program, you will focus upon the positive aspects of health and weight control. This means you will not be worried about deprivation, and you won't be focusing upon all the things you should not do. You will be focused on foods that satisfy your hunger: foods which you can obtain in your local supermarket, simple foods which you can continue eating and enjoying for the rest of your life. And, thus, the same basic diet-and-lifestyle principles apply to us all.

  8. 8.  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.
  9. 9. 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.
  10. 10. 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.

  12. 12. 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.
  13. 13. 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.
  14. 14. 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.
