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.

Good Information Mixed with Crazy Sh!*

My Quack alarm went off many times while listening to this audiobook. There is some good information, particularly the chapter on lipids, but there is some strange stuff too.
Dr. Shanahan quotes from Dr. Andrew Weil and Michael Pollan, but rather than “Eat food, not too much. Mostly plants” she advises eating lots of meat, and the eyeballs, brain, testicles, ... well, every part. Cook chicken with the skin on and eat the skin. Instead of eating unhealthy McDonalds' french fries you should fry sliced potatoes at home using lard. Yup, lard.
The abundant analogies were weird too -- Like a meth lab in the desert with it's paint thinner and gasoline. What kind of meth does that lab make?
The narrator Eliza Foss had perfect diction and was easy to understand (except she pronounced Hawaiian Poke like poke with a stick rather than the correct 'po-kee') but her sing-song voice came off like a 20 hour Masingale douche commercial.
Overall this one of my least favorite nutrition audiobooks.
