Dr Cate Shanahan’s COVID Crisis Great Book Giveaway
Dr Cate’s Note: This Promotion is OVER. A huge thank you to all those who participated and congratulations to our 3 big winners!
I don’t know if you’ve been reading the news, but there’s been some pretty crazy stuff going on out there. A lot of people are starting to think differently about their health. Things like, What would I do if there were no health care or What if only the very rich could afford it? Some 40 million Americans are now out of work, which for a lot of them means no more insurance.
I want to do something special this month. Every Saturday in June I will be sending out a free signed copy of any one of my books with a personal message to one lucky reader somewhere in the USA to either keep for themselves or gift to someone who has recently lost their job, or is struggling with metabolic issues, or has simply hit upon hard times. Think of it as you and me giving a book to someone who might not otherwise be able to get one.

Saved my life
I would like to thank you for literally saving my life. Back in February, I had to be hospitalized while on vacation in Phoenix with an A1C of 11% and had to start taking 2 types of insulin and 2 other meds. I read the Fatburn Fix in April, and followed the program to a tee, and I’m down by 15 pounds, 6.8 A1C, and only one once weekly diabetes medicine. Prior to reading the book, it was almost impossible for me to lose weight as a diabetic.
I feel free
For the last month, I have really been reading all labels on everything. I have completely remove those 8 oils you talk about. I must tell you, I feel great! I have more energy and I am now 197 lbs (have always been around 205 to 210lbs). I eat potatoes with real butter, grass fed steak, pasta with the right toppings. I eat everything! I seem to crave less sugar. I love it!
I feel so much better
I had terrible aches and pains everywhere in my body, my hands, shoulders and knees. I feel so much better and the way I feel is motivating me every day! Thank you

Better than ever
I am an anesthesiologist in Orlando and a huge fan of both of your books! I have been incorporating your principles for the last 10 months and feel that my health is better than ever.

My allergies disappeared
The biggest difference for me (and a surprising one) is that my allergies have almost completely disappeared! This is a big deal for me, because I’ve had allergies most of my life and they have often affected what I do which is a teaching music in [a public school district]. In general, I feel much better and have more consistent energy throughout the day.
Heart Palpitations have Stopped
I’ve lost 20+ pounds (also fasting 16-24 hours daily) and haven’t had palpitations except for one occasion — I had a mini bag of Fritos for the first time in July. And, I feel better now on a daily basis than I ever did all through college.

I’ve lost over 50 pounds
I’ve lost over 50 pounds. I’m 56 years old. Cutting processed food and unhealthy fats from my diet was one of the first things I did on my health recovery journey...I went cold turkey off the bad oils. Emptied my pantry into the trash and just started eating real food

Lost a solid 20 lbs and my bloodwork is great
I have lost a solid 20 lbs and my bloodwork (after 3 months of eating your way) was even better! I was metabolically healthy (per your book) before I read your book, but barely. Lowering my weight, sealed the deal! I have been talking about you and your book to anyone who will listen...Thank you for all you’ve done and what you continue to do! You are changing lives for the better!

Lost 20 lbs I could never shed
I love your Fatburn Fix! Has helped me so so much! I have had the dreaded weight all my life - 20 or so pounds I could never shed. I have lost that now. I only eat 2 meals a day lunch and dinner with a glass of milk or cappuccino around 4 to hold me over. No snacking and not bad oils. It has been the key to unlocking my fatburn. I work out in the am and believe I am burning fat for energy not from food!
I feel great
My waist is four inches smaller. I feel great and many of the minor aches and pains that I had (knees and lower back) are gone. Also, my muscle tone is amazing, even though I have not increased my workout routine.

Highly recommend The Fatburn Fix
Dr. Shanahan has had a significant impact on my practice of medicine. I am known as a Low Carb Doctor, but I never really appreciated the negative effects of processed seed oils on the health of my patients. I highly recommend The Fatburn Fix to my patients and have a loaner copy in my waiting room. It is amazing how quickly blood sugars and overall health improves with cutting seed oils. It is not just about the carbs!

> Tears of joy
I'm crying tears of joy and appreciation for all you've done for me and my health! Without Deep Nutrition and Fatburn Fix, I would literally still be in the vicious cycle I'd been fighting all my life! In a nutshell - I am no longer a compulsive overeating addict suffering under the crushing 'thumb' of all food and alcohol.
And since COVID-19 started in China, we felt it made sense to offer one of the rare, collectable Chinese versions of Deep Nutrition as one of the four books we giveaway to whichever lucky winner requests it first.

Are Products with Soy Lecithin Safe to Eat? (Like Chocolate & Ice Cream)

A couple of questions… Soy oil is part of the hateful eight, but what about soy milk? And, you thoughts on CBD oil is it’s ingested. Is it safe? Thanks. And, I love your books and your work.
Hello Dr. Cate! I was familiar with your name and your appearance on Bill Maher led me to read the FatBurn Fix and Deep Nutrition. As an academic I put a lot of stock in evidence so I love the science you share – thanks!! After reading both books I have expanded my ancestral diet lifestyle. Today I had blood test and my cholestorol went up from last year although HDL is 73 and Tri/HDL ratio is 0.59. So, 2 questions: 1) At what point is there a concern with cholestorol and 2) is there a limit on how much good fat in the diet comes from saturated fats? (To those wanting FatBurn Fix I ordered on Amazon and it arrived much earlier than Amazon originally expected – will review now).
Thanks for your quick response. I just posted a glowing review on Goodreads?https://www.goodreads.com/r…
I wouldn’t think restricting calories would cause thyroid issues unless you restricted to the point of undernourishment.
LOVE your book The Fatburn Fix! Got turned on to this through your appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. I’m hoping changes will help fix my high thyroid readings indicating hypothyroidism. Prescribed levothyroxin. I’ve always been on a more restricted calorie diet. Does this play into my abnormal readings?
Hi Ralph! You’re the winner this week! Congratualtions and please send an email with your address and which book you’d like to info@DrCate.com
Thank you! I have now received Deep Nutrition and FatBurn Fix! I am ready to overhaul my ways of eating! I used to almost live on protein bars! ? Also I enjoyed the new podcast this morning! You are so wise!!
Palm is highly saturated and stable, so it’s “okay” if refined and good if unrefined or gently refined. More info here: https://drcate.com/list-of-…
Avoid. More info on my List of Good Fats and Bad page here: https://drcate.com/list-of-…
Dr. Cate- Quick question about organic seed oils…still avoid or are they ok? I’m suspicious of them! I have Deep Nutrition and Fatburn Fix Is on the way!!!! Thank you for all the knowledge you share!
Thank you ! You’re entered to WEEK #3, winner to be determined Saturday June 20.
Some people have a problem but most dont. Keep in mind that traditional methods of soaking and sprouting deactivate numerous anti-nutrients and gut irritants, including lectins, phytates, while increasing vitamins and bioavailability of minerals. This site is one of many with instructions and you don’t need to turn it into a plant, you just need to see a tiny root growing and you’ve gone far enough
Hi Holly, Congratulations!
Please email your shipping address to info@DrCate.com.
Hi, Dr. Cate! Love your book. What about red palm oil? This company describes its process, including “natural” refining. Does that mean it is okay? They seem very rigorous. https://www.palmdoneright.com
Hi, Dr. Cate! I am the Week 2 winner of your COVID-19 Crisis Great Book Giveaway! I am posting this per your instructions at Dr. Cate on facebook! Thank you!
love your books, here is my review
Dr. Cate, what are your thoughts on Lectins? You mention them in passing in your book relative to legumes but are they significant?
Thank you ! You’re entered to WEEK #3, winner to be determined Saturday June 20.
Great!! I will keep it up religiously and look forward to seeing it drop!!
I Absolutely love the book!
High blood pressure can definitely absolutely most assuredly resolve. It takes about 6 months or longer.
I received your book earlier this week and have been devouring it while trying to absorb the science along the way. Your explanations are very thorough, thus requiring my full attention in order to “digest” the info—pardon the pun?? I love how you provide your reader a gradual transition into keto. I tried full-on keto for a month last year and felt miserable the entire time. I’m just beginning the task of determining what I can eat while still providing all the foods my family of boys love. Looking forward to having more energy!

Hello, Dr. Shanahan!
I watched your interview with Bill Maher on HBO’s ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’ and am very curious about the uses of good fat in my diet.
Here’s the link to a verified-Amazon purchase Review of ‘The Fatburn Fix’: https://www.amazon.com/gp/c….
Thank you for the contest to win your book!
1. If you don’t eat then you’ll burn your body fat, as long as you are metabolically well. Coffee promotes FatBurn.
2. HDL I like to be higher than your triglyceride number and over 60. LDL, nobody seems to know what it means but certainly low is not beneficial and over 160 or so may be protective for your immune system.
3. Cholesterol is not a worry, so yes crab meat is good.
Thank you, Christine! You’re entered to win.
I was unaware of the issues with all of these seed oils. Thanks for the information and explanation!!! Very interesting!
This info is what I’ve been looking for my entire life. Thank you.
Great book which should be shared with doctors
Great book should be given to doctors
Great book, should be given to doctors
My eyes are wide open! Since discovering Dr Cate on Bill Maher I have found out just how unhealthy my diet has been. I am trying to cut out seed oils and then added sugar. Reading what Dr Cate advises it truly makes sense! Thank you Dr. Cate!

No nutritional problems with either grinding veggies in broth or with skipping the browning of bones.
Thank you, you’re entered to win!
Great question! It’s become an FAQ on this page https://drcate.com/list-of-good-fats-and-oils-versus-bad/
Scroll down towards the bottom of the post, if you hit the comments you’ve gone too far.
Hi Dr. Cate: Do the hateful eight apply to beauty products as well? I have noticed sunflower and the like are contained in some topical products that I use. Do they have the same affect on the body even though they are not entering the digestive tract?
I’m a fan. Is there a nutritional problem with grinding all the cooked veggies in the broth, marrow included? I love chunky broth, unless there’s a reason why not. Also, is there a problem cooking everything without browning the meat and veggies before putting it in the pot?
