Hay diet

Dr. Hay fasting diet: Where did it come from?

The American doctor Howard Hay developed a theory at the end of the 19th century, which claims that carbs and proteins shouldn’t be consumed at the same time, as this hinders the digestion of the carbs. Eventually, this leads to a fermentation of carbs in the bowel, which according to Hay can be a main cause of various diseases arising. Consequently, the separation of carbs and proteins does not only regulate and fasten digestion, but is also capable of healing various diseases. Thus, eating according to this diet is quite difficult in everyday life and there is no scientific evidence proving its effectiveness.
