From1985 to 2008 obesity rates in the US skyrocketed and the number one New Year's Resolution has become "Lose Weight!"

Dr. Shintani, author of the "Eat More Weigh Less Diet", "The Hawaii Diet" and the "Good Carbohydrate Revolution" shows how easy this can be done by simply changing food choices to high-carbohydrate low-fat plant foods and avoiding animal and processed foods.

Dr. Shintani shows that the once slender Hawaiian people now have the highest rate of obesity in Hawaii as a result of an epigenetic response to the modern US diet. Citing his published article from Am J Clin Nutr. 1991 "Obesity and cardiovascular risk intervention through the ad libitum feeding of traditional Hawaiian diet" shows also that his oil free Hawaii Diet drops serum cholesterol levels even more than the olive oil rich Mediterranean Diet.

Four included video segments recorded by The Hawaii Health Foundation suggest that the wholefood vegan diet not only results in weight loss but the reduction or elimination of medications for allergy, arthritis, diabetes, GERD, headaches, high cholesterol, hypertension, and PMS

Dr. Shintani closes with a short non-denominational Hawaiian prayer for health.

Recorded and edited by William Harris M.D. from a Vegetarian Society of Hawaii meeting on 1/8/2013
