#131: Why Quit Vegetable Oils & The Nutriton-Beauty Connection ~Dr Cate Shanahan

Dr. Cate Shanahan, author of Deep Nutrition, joins us today to talk about the ill effects of PUFA’s, caring for your Connective Tissue, pre and post natal nutrition, and how nutrition effects beauty. 


Cate knocked me sideways with her seminal book Deep Nutrition, that introduces you to ideas in nature and human physiology that makes so much sense, but you don’t hear about. 


She’s a board certified US Family physician specialising in resolving diet-driven conditions such as obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue and autoimmune conditions. She has built nutritional programs for LA Lakers and other NBA teams across the US for optimal performance and wellness. 


Dr Cate has taken on the David vs Goliath war against Polyunsaturated Fats (PUFA’s), otherwise known as Seed and Vegetable Oils, for their deleterious effects on the human body. We get into why she is so passionate about this fight. 


As part of your understanding of what great nutritional health looks like, this episode with Cate is a must-listen, alongside her books listed below.
