Today, I am blessed to have here with me, the leading authority on nutrition and human metabolism, Dr. Cate Shanahan.

A board-certified Family Physician with over 20 years of clinical experience, and NY Times bestselling author of The FatBurn Fix, Deep Nutrition and Food Rules, her expertise is fixing the underlying problems that cause metabolic damage and inflammation, leading to autoimmunity, weight gain, diabetes, cancer and accelerated aging processes.

After getting her BS in biology from Rutgers University, she trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University’s graduate school before attending Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. She practiced in Hawaii for ten years where she studied ethnobotany and her healthiest patient’s culinary habits.

She applied her learning and experiences in all these scientific fields to write Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food. Together with Dr. Tim DiFrancesco and NBA legend Gary Vitti, she created the PRO Nutrition program for the LA Lakers and helped forge a partnership between Whole Foods Market and numerous NBA teams.

In May of 2018 she begin Director of Metabolic Health for ABC Fine Wine and Spirits, a progressive, family-run company interested in saving money by the betterment of health.

She’s also the Medical & Scientific Advisor at CB Supplements, overseeing their premium-grade multi collagen protein, and for beliv, a forward-thinking Latin American beverage company.

About The Hateful Eight

  • Avoid these oils:
    • Corn
    • Canola
    • Cottonseed
    • Soy
    • Sunflower
    • Safflower
    • Rice
    • Grapeseed
  • They are too high in unstable fatty acids.
  • The average person is getting most of their calories from these oils.
  • Without these seed oils, we would not have the burden of chronic disease.
  • We were healthier 100 years ago, and we had no clue about vitamins, minerals, and supplements.

The Great Exchange

  • After a certain point, our body wants nothing to do with these unstable fatty acids.
  • Two percent of daily calories should come from omega-3 and omega-6. We actually need more omega-3 than we do omega-6.
  • The exchange of good fatty acids for bad fatty acids opens the door to chronic disease. Once we exceed the two percent amount of unstable fatty acids, then they end up in our body fat.
  • We have a lot of people who are on the skinny side but are centrally obese. Our bodies cannot traffic these unstable acids properly. That’s why it stays near the fat lining of our intestines.
  • Start eating the monounsaturated fatty acids.
  • Clear your life of the seed oils.

We Need More Omega-3s Than Omega-6s

  • On a healthy diet, omega-3s are more likely to get damaged during cooking.
  • For the amount that is ultimately absorbed, we need more omega-3 sources in the food that we eat.
  • You can’t supplement more omega-3 if you have been eating a standard American diet. Instead, you have to cut the omega-6. If you reduce omega-6 without increasing your intake of omega-3, then your blood levels of omega-3 will start to rise.
  • Oxidation science is very complicated, and there is a lot to consider.

Fish Oil Is Highly Unstable

  • Oxygen will attack the bond and destroy the molecule. Fish oil has two double bonds. So the oxygen is nine billion times more likely to attack.
  • Fish oils can have five double bonds. It is so unstable that it rarely makes it off the shelf before it’s destroyed.
  • The fish oil will turn into toxic compounds.
  • People are getting toxic compounds from low-quality fish oils.
