Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.

Die Erkenntnis, dass die Gesellschaft immer älter wird, gehört heute schon fast zum Allgemeingut. Das heißt aber nicht nur, dass immer weniger Kinder geboren werden, sondern auch, dass die Lebensspanne der Menschen länger wird. Deshalb verbreiten sich Erkrankungen, die eher im Alter auftreten, immer mehr. Alzheimer ist so eine Krankheit und zudem eine, die in der Gesellschaft weitgehend tabuisiert wird. Dabei stellt die Pflege eines Alzheimerkranken enorm hohe Anforderungen an Angehörige, Freunde und Dienstleister. "Alzheimer für Dummies" hilft die Krankheit zu erkennen, die Pflege und den Alltag mit einem Demenzkranken, Familie und Arbeit zu organisieren. In einem speziellen Kapitel widmet sich das Buch der Pflege der Pflegenden. So deckt das Buch ein breites Spektrum der Bedürfnisse der Angehörigen eines Alzheimerkranken ab.

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.

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.
