About the Book



"A self-published phenomenon examining the habits that kept our ancestors disease-free--now with a prescriptive plan for "The Human Diet" to help us all live long, vital, healthy lives. Physician and biochemist Cate Shanahan, M.D. examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives--diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and "Blue Zone"--and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. These four nutritional strategies--fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and organ meats--form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls "The Human Diet." Rooted in her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional foods to cure her own debilitating injuries, and combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics, Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children. Deep Nutrition offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet to: *Improve mood *Eliminate cravings and the need to snack *Boost fertility and have healthier children *Sharpen cognition and memory *Eliminate allergies and disease *Build stronger bones and joints *Get younger, smoother skin Deep Nutrition cuts through today's culture of conflicting nutritional ideologies, showing how the habits of our ancestors can help us lead longer, healthier, more vital lives"--



Book Synopsis



One of the Best Health and Wellness Books of 2017 -- Sports Illustrated

Deep Nutrition cuts through today's culture of conflicting nutritional ideologies, showing how the habits of our ancestors can help us lead longer, healthier, more vital lives.

Physician and biochemist Catherine Shanahan, M.D. examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives--diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and "Blue Zone"--and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. These four nutritional strategies--fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and organ meats--form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls "The Human Diet."

Rooted in her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional foods to cure her own debilitating injuries, and combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics, Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children.

Deep Nutrition offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet to:

*Improve mood
*Eliminate cravings and the need to snack
*Boost fertility and have healthier children
*Sharpen cognition and memory
*Eliminate allergies and disease
*Build stronger bones and joints
*Get younger, smoother skin



Review Quotes




"Dr. Shanahan has provided a solid reference that deserves a place in the library of anyone who is seriously interested in nutrition. Her perspective on the vital role that healthy fat has in our diet is novel and, if implemented, can radically improve your health." - Dr. Joseph Mercola, Author of Fat for Fuel and Founder of Mercola.com, the Most Visited Natural-Health Website

"If you want to understand the big picture of how optimal health starts with food, start with Dr. Cate. Her bookDeep Nutrition leaves you with a deep appreciation of the profound relationship between our genes and the planet, inspiring us to be good shepherds of both."
--Dallas Hartwig, author of The Whole 30

"I have based to my work on the idea that getting the right kinds of healthy fats into your body and avoiding the worst fats is essential to optimal health. I've interviewed dozens of the world's top experts about this, and I know of no one who speaks more eloquently on this topic than Dr Cate. If she's talking fats, pull up a chair. Take notes."
--Dave Asprey, author of the Bulletproof Diet

"[Deep Nutrition is] a different philosophy, It's something that we all had to adjust to, but we trust Dr. Cate implicitly. I've seen great results from it from when I started doing it--it's worked well for me."

"Deep Nutrition explains in a very detailed and easy-to-understand way how our diets affect us on a cellular level. Dr. Cate Shanahan provides the best explanation I've found for how many modern foods are not simply causing us to gain weight, but are literally creating disease within our cells. She shows the connection between diet and gene health, and details how poor diet choices can literally affect future generations!"
--Wellness Mama

--Dwight Howard, NBA player with the Houston Rockets
