Synopses & Reviews
Finally, an all-you-can-eat weight loss program that really works.
(Lose up to 30 pounds in three weeks with no calorie counting!)
The phenomenal new weight loss program that has swept the Hawaiian Islands is now available to you! Created by a medical doctor and used by the state's governor and other community leaders, this unique program combines the ancient wisdom and health secrets of the Islands with the latest nutritional breakthroughs. The result is an all-you-can-eat program that produces steady, lasting weight loss and dramatic health benefits.
Here are just some of the elements that make the HawaiiDiet incredibly effective:
Dr. Shintani's step-by-step process shows you how to use the power of your mind and spirit to achieve your weight loss and health goals. He also introduces you to the revolutionary Shintani Mass Index, a remarkably easy way to evaluate the weight loss effect of foods and to choose those that help you burn fat.
Plus, you'll get the complete Three-Week Menu Plan, which includes 21 days of daily menus and loads of recipes that make this diet a gourmet pleasure. Don't miss "Hula Grill's Ginger Pineapple Chicken," magnificent in a stir-fry sauce...spicy, full-flavored "Barbecued Baked Beans"...or hearty, filling "Chunky Two-Bean Chili," a favorite that's even better the next day.
Seize this chance to return to the source of good health with a program that works with nature and time-tested knowledge to bring your body and soul into balance. The HawaiiDiet is a groundbreaking way of eating that will help you align your physical and spiritual health for a renewed, re-energized life.
