Dakota Diet works (so far)

Film follows Plains diet experiment

Pine Ridge man improves health with buffalo, flax, fishA Rapid City doctor developed the program, and it caught the interest of filmmakers Sam Hurst of Rapid City and Larry Pourier, also of South Dakota.

Their film, “Good Meat: How the Lakota Got Fat and Beau LeBeau Changed His Life,” documents how LeBeau adopted “The Dakota Diet: Health Secrets from the Great Plains,” a book written about a diet developed by Dr. Kevin Weiland.

The diet focuses on eating foods from this area: buffalo and wild game, fresh fish, soy and flax seed.

LeBeau has lost more than 60 pounds.
