Endlich dürfen wir wieder fett essen – und nehmen dabei sogar ab! Lange wurde uns erzählt, dass Fett dick macht, Herz-Kreislauf-Krankheiten hervorruft und unserer Gesundheit schadet. Doch die wissenschaftliche Studienlage zeigt inzwischen sehr deutlich, dass genau das Gegenteil der Fall ist: Eine Ernährung, die reich ist an hochwertigen Fettsäuren, wie sie zum Beispiel in Fisch, Eiern, Nüssen, Olivenöl oder Avocado enthalten sind, bringt enorme gesundheitliche Vorteile und hilft sogar beim Abnehmen. In seinem neuen Buch präsentiert der Arzt und neunfache New York Times-Bestsellerautor Mark Hyman ein innovatives Konzept, um abzunehmen und langfristig gesund zu bleiben. Iss Fett, werde schlank basiert auf aktuellen Forschungsergebnissen und erklärt, wie man sich ernähren muss, um optimale Gesundheit zu erlangen und überflüssige Pfunde loszuwerden. Auf Genuss muss man trotzdem nicht verzichten, denn wie wir wissen, schmeckt mit einer Portion Fett alles gleich viel besser. Mit vielen praktischen Tipps, Menüplänen, Rezepten und Einkaufslisten weist dieser umfassende Abnehmratgeber den Weg in ein schlankeres, gesünderes Leben mit mehr Lebensfreude, Energie und Wohlbefinden.

Ein seltsam verstörendes, hypnotisierendes Buch über eine Frau, die, laut ihrem Ehemann an Durchschnittlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen ist – bis sie eines Tages beschließt, kein Fleisch mehr zu essen... »Bevor meine Frau zur Vegetarierin wurde, hielt ich sie für nichts Besonderes. Bei unserer ersten Begegnung fand ich sie nicht einmal attraktiv. Mittelgroß, ein Topfschnitt, irgendwo zwischen kurz und lang, gelbliche unreine Haut, Schlupflider und dominante Wangenknochen. So fühlte ich mich weder von ihr angezogen noch abgestoßen und sah daher keinen Grund, sie nicht zu heiraten.« Yeong-Hye und ihr Ehemann sind ganz gewöhnliche Leute. Er geht beflissen seinem Bürojob nach und hegt keinerlei Ambitionen. Sie ist eine zwar leidenschaftslose, aber pflichtbewusste Hausfrau. Die angenehme Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe wird jäh gefährdet, als Yeong-Hye beschließt, sich fortan ausschließlich vegetarisch zu ernähren und alle tierischen Produkte aus dem Haushalt entfernt. »Ich hatte einen Traum«, so ihre einzige Erklärung. Ein kleiner Akt der Unabhängigkeit, aber ein fataler, denn in einem Land wie Südkorea, in dem strenge soziale Normen herrschen, gilt der Vegetarismus als subversiv. Doch damit nicht genug. Bald nimmt Yeong-Hyes passive Rebellion immer groteskere Ausmaße an. Sie, die niemals gerne einen BH getragen hat, fängt an, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu entblößen und von einem Leben als Pflanze zu träumen. Bis sich ihre gesamte Familie gegen sie wendet. Die Vegetarierin ist eine kafkaeske Geschichte in drei Akten über Scham und Begierde, Macht und Obsession sowie unsere zum Scheitern verurteilten Versuche, den Anderen zu verstehen, der ja doch, wie man selbst, Gefangener im eigenen Leib ist.

Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können. Hierfür analysieren Steven Heller und Gail Anderson herausragende Arbeiten der weltweit renommiertesten Gestalter mit: Von Michael Bierut, Jan Tschichold, Anton Stankowski, Neville Brody und Jessica Hische über Fons Hickmann, Paul Rand und Stefan Sagmeister bis hin zu Seymour Chwast, Otl Aicher, Paul Sahre und Christopher Niemann – erstklassige Projekte von fünfzig Kreativen werden hinsichtlich Kreativität und Techniken beleuchtet. Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven. Last, but not least widmet sich ein ausführliches Kapitel dem Storytelling. Ein umfassendes Arbeitsbuch also, das gerade Newcomer bestens durch ihre Ausbildung begleiten wird.
