Cate Shanahan M.D is a board-certified family physician and NY Times bestselling author of The FATBURN Fix and Deep Nutrition. She trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University before attending Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

After healing herself, she began building a practice around the new method of healing, based on a very old and overlooked but incredibly potent body of human knowledge now summarized in Deep Nutrition. In 2011, she created the Los Angeles Lakers PRO Nutrition Program based on the Deep Nutrition principles that are now taught in colleges, used by healthcare professionals around the world and in organizations like the Warriors, Villanova Basketball, and the NY Yankees.

Deep Nutrition Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

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.

The Fatburn Fix Boost Energy, End Hunger, and Lose Weight by Using Body Fat for Fuel

The ability to use body fat for energy is essential to health―but over decades of practice, renowned family physician Catherine Shanahan, M.D., observed that many of her patients could not burn their body fat between meals, trapping them in a downward spiral of hunger, fatigue, and weight gain. In The Fatburn Fix, Dr. Shanahan shows us how industrially produced vegetable oils accumulate in our body fat and disrupt our body’s energy-producing systems, driving food addictions that hijack our moods and habits while making it nearly impossible to control our weight. To reclaim our health, we need to detoxify our body fat and help repair our “FatBurn” capabilities.
