HomePeopleTurning the Indigenous Diet on its Head

For many indigenous people who have become overweight thanks to changes in their traditional diet to that of the modern unhealthy alternative, a viable solution also exists in this time frame.

While many have come to realize that they must do something to remedy the situation, the very thought of going on a diet is enough to send them heading for the refrigerator and grabbing that last king-size slice of cream-filled pie like it’s the last thing they will ever eat! That’s because a lot of diets are so restrictive on what a person can eat that it fills the prospective dieter with images of eating starvation diets made up of lettuce leaves and celery sticks and not a lot else besides!

Of course, most modern diets are nothing like that. But the image of having to go without many of the foods that a person has come to like is enough to really put them off dieting altogether.

But by doing just a little research into the many and varied kinds of diet plans that are currently available, it will become obvious that there is a solution to fit with the needs of almost all overweight people, whatever their personal preferences and needs may be. Of these, one genre of diet that has become hugely popular over the last decade or so is the convenience diet, which has also come to be known as the diet food delivery program.

There are several diet companies that provide this kind of program, with the more notable ones being the likes of Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem (read more about it here: http://nstuf.com). These companies provide a home delivery meal service that goes beyond the popular conception of the more popularly imagined, hands on diet for losing weight.

And they do it by literally shipping all the meals a dieter will need to eat for the duration of their program directly to their home. This is true whatever the address on the mainland, including addresses on reservation land.

This means that the customer of any of these companies does not need to:

  • Go to the store to buy food
  • Prepare or cook any food
  • Count calories
  • Weigh ingredients
  • Measuring portion sizes
  • Or get all stressed out over anything

All that work is done for them by the company, leaving the customer to enjoy their free time doing whatever they like to do. This is such a huge advantage over other kinds of diet system that many people turn to these companies to help them lose weight, especially when they lead busy lives and simply do not have the time to devote to working a more conventional diet.

It is also perfect for those who simply cannot cook for themselves and have had to rely on eating ready meals from the supermarket, or buying takeout food from restaurants. All of which had most likely been partly or wholly responsible for their weight gain in the first place.

So for those indigenous people (as well as everyone else) that need to lose weight but don’t like the idea of a conventional diet, or think that dieting is too restrictive and a lot of work, then this alternative could be just what you are looking for. After all, keeping things simple is usually the best way to get the best results in anything and getting back in shape is certainly no different!
