Kohlenhydrate wurden in den letzten Jahren in fast jeder Diät verteufelt – ob es nun Atkins, Dukan, Low Carb oder eine andere empfohlene Ernährungsform war. Kohlenhydrathaltige Lebensmittel galten als wertlose Dickmacher – und dennoch sehnten sich unzählige Abnehmwillige danach. Mit der High-Carb-Diät stellen der Bestsellerautor und Internist John A. McDougall und seine Frau diese Theorie nun auf den Kopf. Das Konzept basiert auf einem einfachen Dreh: Dem Körper werden primär Kohlenhydrate statt Proteine und Fett zugeführt, was wiederum zu Gewichtsverlust führt und einer Reihe von Krankheiten vorbeugt. Die High-Carb-Diät hilft dem Leser mit einem 7-Tage-Plan, zahlreichen Tipps und über 100 leckeren Rezepten, dieses Ernährungskonzept im Alltag umzusetzen. Eine durch und durch gesunde, auf pflanzlicher Ernährung basierende Diät für mehr Wohlbefinden und einen dauerhaften Gewichtsverlust und unersetzlich für alle, die sich vegetarisch oder vegan ernähren.
