Until very recently, every human on the planet was eating the same food that THOUSANDS of generations of their ancestors had eaten. Then, 50 or so years ago, we abandoned those traditional ways of eating in favour of highly processed foods… many of which have been damaging our bodies ever since.
Today’s podcast guest — Dr Cate Shanahan — has studied ancestral diets from around the world and identified the foods and eating patterns common to all of them. Melding this ancient wisdom with the best of modern nutritional science, she’s unlocked a way of eating that can return our bodies to optimum health and unlock our full genetic potential.
A board certified Family Physician, Dr. Cate trained in biochemistry and genetics. While practicing medicine in Hawaii, she began to study the culinary habits and eating patterns of her healthiest patients. Combining her observations with cutting edge medical research, she penned the bestselling book, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food (named one of the best health and wellness books of 2017 by Sports Illustrated) and went on to create the nutritional program for the LA Lakers.
With high profile fans like Mark Sisson, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, Dr Cate’s food philosophy has attracted thousands of followers around the globe. Her mission is to help people reverse metabolic disease, reshape their body, and achieve true glowing health by eating simple, delicious, real whole foods and getting rid of some silent killers.
