"Good Meat". The subject of the hourlong film is Beau LeBeau, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe in South Dakota. Once a star athlete, LeBeau slipped into poor eating habits and went up to 333 pounds. Worse, his family health history included cancer and diabetes.
With help from his doctor and a nutritionist, who is also a member of the tribe, LeBeau adopts a diet of chiefly bison meat and native plants, including Hidatsa corn, chokecherries, prairie turnips and tea - foods that his tribal ancestors ate and for which their system was well-adapted.
