The Power Plate: Lose Weight, Lower Cholesterol, Tackle Diabetes

The epidemics of obesity and diabetes are having a devastating effect on Native Americans. Once rare among the community, one in five now suffers from Type 2 diabetes. And this disease of older adults is now being diagnosed even in Native children and teenagers.

Graham Greene, the Academy Award nominee of Dances with Wolves, Green Mile, and countless other films and popular television shows, has experienced the tragic consequences diabetes can have on family and friends. In “The Power Plate,” he tells us that it doesn’t have to be this way.

Greene shows us how Native Americans can harness the power of their plates to reclaim their health by eating vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. These foods are our best medicine to help us lose weight, lower cholesterol, and even tackle diabetes.
