Publisher's Summary

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, MD, 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Long and Consistently Educational

I didnt agree with everything, but 95% of it made perfect sense to me and both fleshed out things I already knew or enlightened me in areas that I was uninformed. No more vegetable oil for me!

Most educational piece of anything ever!

Hard to express my agreement with the information in the book. It frustrates me knowing we've had this information thousands of years but veered away from it in the last few hundred years.

This is should be taught in schools all around North America, or even the world!

not captivating, and poor story telling

I had high hopes for this book, as I thoroughly enjoy health and nutrition books like "outlive" and listening to science based research. Unfortunately, this book seems to have a lot of "what it's", "this could be you" and other comments that make it feel like the author is trying to push an agenda and make promises on one point of view. I had to skip many chapters because it was so dry, and a lot of the information was cherry picked. I believe scientific literature should allow the reader to come to their own conclusion, and not make a statement such as "this will kill you, and this will not" when it comes to nutrition. Overall, I hope to return this book as it was not interesting, informative, nor a good story.

Life-changing

This book opened my mind on the importance of nutrition for overall health. Both for yourself and your offspring. A lot of studies and references are presented and quoted constantly to support the writer's ideas. Very inspiring. Would suggest to every single person I know.

complete fake news - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

The author claims that Alzheimer's can be cured by changing diet. Complete garbage. This is fake news. If you research behind the claims, she falls in step with conspiracy theorists.

Very Good Information

The studies and information provided by Dr. Shanahan are valuable and certainly makes this book worth the read. At the end, she also gives a step by step guide to change eating habits in a way that is sustainable. I enjoyed the learning process and it gave me a lot of good insight. That said, this book might trigger anyone struggling with body issues with the whole "beautiful baby" embargo, though I will give it to Shanahan when she explains that the vast majority of us have good genes but many don't express them at their full potential. Second, I feel this book could be more condensed as it seems a bit stretched out. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend but I'd explain the two caveats as I have above first.

Good material. HORRIBLE narrator

Information is great but the “woman” who reads it is actually a robot. VERY difficult to stand listening.

Very Informative!

Great book and highly informative. However, too many strong statements and is sometimes riddled with confirmation bias. Nevertheless, the main thesis is something i do believe in and abide by. Well organized and I learned a lot!
