BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Dakota Diet offers health secrets from the Great Plains. This book was written by Dr. Kevin Weiland and offers the solution to end yo-yo dieting. The Dakota Diet offers something that other diets don’t – nutritionally sound foods that will help you lose weight and improve your cholesterol levels. You will also find that the diet can add healthier years to your life. This diet is based on the foods that Plains Indians ate. The foods are rich and high in omega-3 fatty acids, which counter the unhealthy effects of omega-6s. The foods you eat can be found on the plains of the Dakotas.

The Dakota Diet is one that can help you reap the benefits of healthy fats and enjoy hearty foods while still losing weight. The diet is focused on foods that are nutrient-dense and low-calorie. Some of the foods you are encouraged to eat on this plan are flax seed, soy, buffalo, fresh fish, wild game, fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. This diet is also high in soluble fiber from foods like beans, oats and barley. The book also includes recipes for foods prepared using buffalo, wild game, vegetables and grains and salads.
