"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 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.”
--Kobe Bryant, NBA player with the L.A. Lakers
"Dr. Cate has emerged as one of the most important voices in the Primal/Paleo movement. She gives you the big picture and the nitty gritty bedrock science of why this way of eating works."
―Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint
“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!”
“Deep Nutrition really helped me with endurance. I started to feel better as a player. I was able to run more, I was able to be more active because of my diet change, and I just decided to keep going with it to this day.”
―Dwight Howard, NBA player with the Houston Rockets
"Dr. Cate Shanahan beautifully presents the scientific evidence why traditional foods enjoyed by our ancestors thousands of years ago can keep us lean and disease-free today. Deep Nutrition is an eye-opening, engaging book that is sure to change your life and the life of your family."
--Vani Hari, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Food Babe Way
"With a wealth of detail, Shanahan shows how changing what you eat can improve everything from bone strength to memory."
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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dr. Shanahan doesn't just say "sugar is bad" (we've known that since we were 8), but rather, she teaches in a way that truly helps you understand why and how certain foods affect your genes, your physique, and your health, both negatively and positively. So you come away not with a list of things you shouldn't eat, but with knowledge that is far more convincing. (Trust me, the sugar and canola oil chapters will clear out shelves of space in your pantry!)
The net takeaway isn't a specific diet, but a way of thinking about food choices. And an understanding of the best ways to prepare foods. It's the first nutrition book that I have read that has helped me enjoy food more, not less! Food that is very nutritious should be incredibly delicious. And it is. My family looks and feels better than ever too! This book has been life-changing for us.
P.S. If you are planning to have a baby, please especially read this book! Lots of amazing info there!
