Deep Nutrition is a book which explains the negative effects that our modern diets are having on our bodies. Dr. Shanahan provides background and reasoning for the traditional "human diet", which is as close as we can get to the way our great-great-great grandparents ate. She explains why the traditional diet is essential and walks through the damage that vegetable oils and sugars are causing. She also discusses the modern diet's impact on fetal/childhood development and modern diseases.
Much of the book is dedicated to the link between our nutrition and our health, as well as making the argument that the modern diet of highly processed foods is harming us and destroying our genetic momentum. The book also contains recipes, meal planning guides, and a FAQ section to help you transition as easily as possible.
We completely changed our eating habits as a result of reading Deep Nutrition, and we have never felt better. We've replaced all of our cooking oils and condiments, reduced our carb intake to < 50g on most days, started fermenting food, improved the quality of our food purchases, and started eating in a more nose-to-tail style. We've also found ourselves less interested in eating out at restaurants, especially since most of them use cheap and highly processed cooking oils (canola, cottonseed, soy, corn, safflower, etc.).
I can't deny it. We are believers.
I am still working on processing our book highlights. We thought this book was so important that we needed to share our recommendation right away.
