Ep 32: Dr. Cate Shanahan, MD – Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

Dr. Cate Shanahan MD. teaches us about the problems that exist in healthcare and how it is linked to the modern food system. The key to bettering your health is to eat real food. Listen as we discuss the four pillars of the optimal diet – Fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, organ meats and our favorite – meat cooked on the bone!

BIO:
Cate Shanahan, MD is a board-certified family physician on a mission to awaken us all to the idea that culinary arts represent a powerful body of nutrition science (including most cookbooks published up to about 1940), and to encourage mothers to let their children grow up to be cowboys (and farmers) because this can save Nature while improving human health.

Dr. Cate trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University before attending Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Practicing in Hawaii she discovered her older patients who grew up eating traditional foods were healthier than their own children and grandchildren who grew up eating according to government recommendations and realized that what dietitians and doctors learn about nutrition is dangerously wrong. She is author of several books including the underground classic Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, which argues that our genes are programmed by culinary practices of the past and we now need to eat the four categories of foods people have always eaten. She has served as the Director of the Los Angeles Lakers PRO Nutrition Program, and currently works with professional athletes to optimize their metabolism for energy and performance. She also directs a corporate metabolic health program for one of Florida’s largest family owned companies. She has been featured in several documentary films and major media outlets including Sports Illustrated, Vogue, Prevention, Reader’sDigest, the NY Post, and the LA Times as well as on numerous TV, radio and podcast shows.
