  6. 6. The HawaiiDiet™ Integrates ModernScience with Ancient Wisdom.The HawaiiDiet™ employs the best of both worlds:It seeks to integrate ancient wisdom with modern science.

The diet is high inwhole complex carbohydrates, very low in fat, has little orno cholesterol, and is high in plant-based

The HawaiiDiet™ Is High in MassIndex.The "Mass Index of Food," or "SMI," (whichstands for the Shintani Mass Index of Food) is a newconcept in the evaluation of the weight-loss-inducingeffect of food.
