Cate Shanahan

Denver, CO
Trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell before entering medical school, Dr Cate recognized pharmaceutical intervention did nothing to heal the underlying metabolic issues her Family Medicine patients in Hawaii were dealing with. Applying her knowledge of biochemistry, she identified the culinary traditions shared by all her healthiest, longest-lived patients and immediately began teaching these principles to others, with incredible healing results. These elements, became the basis of her first book, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food. Having worked as science consultant for the LA Lakers PRO Nutrition (Performance Recovery Orthogenesis) program since 2012, Dr Cate is fast becoming the go to guru for all things health in sports.
