Editorial Reviews


"Immediately I was struck by the clarity and simplicity of the writing. I didn't realize that fat cells could wander around the body and turn into different cell types. Fascinating!" --Jo Robinson, Author of The Omega Diet

"Dr. Shanahan is the Michael Pollan of medicine, telling us what to eat and why to eat it." --JoAnn Deck, Vice President of Ten Speed Press

"Even readers who are very familiar with the works of Weston Price will still discover new and fascinating information within these pages. I enjoyed Deep Nutrition so much that I honestly did not want to finish it." --Marjorie Tietjen, Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation

"I have just finished reading Deep Nutrition and already recommended it to one of my daughters with the intent to insist that all my 5 adult children read this book as well.  Everyone was required to read Fast Food Nation...and Omnivore's Dilemma."  Ron Singler, MD Medical Director Highline Medical Group, Seattle WA

"Deep Nutrition offers a fascinating presentation of nutrition, genetics, anthropology, history, medicine, metabolism, and cooking. It is a book that I can refer to my patients as a resource, and to colleagues as a reference." -- Lowell Gerber, MD, Medical Director Freeport Cardiology, LLC

"I read Deep Nutrition by Cate Shanahan M.D. three times and can’t wait to read it again. That book is a masterpiece, in my opinion." -- Sean Croxton, Undergroundwellness.com

From the Author

One of our favorite passages in the book speaks to the importance of our ability to gauge beauty. Contrary to what we typically hear, the fascination for good-looking people is not a new phenomenon created by Hollywood. Nor is it about vanity. Rather, the instinct for beauty reflects a deep-seated, primal survival skill that has enabled us to reliably select the healthiest mates and pass on the healthiest genes to our offspring.

Unfortunately, the introduction of industrial food into our bodies has also impacted our genetic expression and, for reasons described in Chapters Two and Three, this means that optimal growth is now relatively more rare and precious than it was in the past.

Once we better appreciate how wandering from our ancestral nutritional path can affect us so powerfully, we can better appreciate the power of real food to set our bodies back on track.
