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:
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.

Audible is the best delivery
This book is very well written, researched and informative. Because it's pretty lengthy and has many scientific and data-oriented sections, I think audible is the only reason I finished this in a reasonable time since I could listen to it in the car and on road trips. Otherwise, making it a singular activity each evening, book-in-hand, I may have fallen asleep without ever making a dent. I've ordered the hard copy as a reference now that I've completed the book via audible.

What made the experience of listening to Deep Nutrition the most enjoyable?
The fact that the author discussed food source down to the molecular level made this book and its advice resonate with logic. Milk and dairy are not just milk and dairy. Source and process matters. Most nutritionists and doctors in the advice business make wide generalizations about food groups. How our chromosomes and DNA are affected by what we swallow is more complex than the average advice giver is aware.
What does Eliza Foss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Although a little sing-songy at times, she does a good job of adding emphasis. Overall the narration was well done.
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. One of my all-time favorites. Kudos and thanks to the authors for putting this resource together.
