This has been life changing

"Let me tell you this has been life-changing. I have all of her books, in audible and ebooks! I have gotten rid of all the hateful 8 oils. I have trained my body to eat its own previously toxic body fat. Download that pod it's a game changer!"

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

Mike Deb Wootan Burcin

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

Mitzi Wilkinson Champion

Knowledge I didn’t know I needed

Your Fatburn Fix book is amazing, my friend. Thank you! I’m an Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and I know my stuff. This is the extra layer of knowledge I didn’t know I needed. Well done!

Jennifer Dillman
Fatburn Fix reader

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!

Lauren Smith

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.

The go-to for strength and conditioning coaches

Whenever I advise my clients about eating to perform I go straight to what I have learned from Dr. Cate. Her book Deep Nutrition has become the go-to for strength and conditioning coaches across the country.

Dismantles the lie

Dr. Cate dismantles the lie that seed oils are healthy, which may the biggest lie about nutrition and health because it’s so insidious.

She knows the chemistry

Dr. Cate alerts us to the harms of seed oils and she’s convincing because she knows the chemistry better than anyone.

No one is better at communicating nutritional truth

Dr. Cate has had the single greatest impact on how we talk to people about fueling for both performance or durability. While we all are a little unique, the foundational principles of human nutrition are immutable. If you are looking to create a more durable, resilient body, no one is better at communicating nutritional truth than Dr. Cate.

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!

Respected in the sports world

Dr. Cate reordered my diet when I was with the L.A. Lakers, and the benefits, for me personally, were felt immediately and have served me to this day. I’ve come to take real food so seriously I started a small family farm. I know of no M.D./nutritionist more respected in the sports world than Dr. Cate Shanahan.

Brought seed oil issue front and center

Cate brought the seed oil issue front and center. Healthy fats matter. So much so that I created an entire product line to swap out bad fats with good.

Optimal health starts with food

If you want to understand how optimal health starts with food, start with Dr. Cate. Her book Deep Nutrition leaves you with an appreciation of the profound relationship between our genes and the planet, inspiring us to be good shepherds of both.

Helped me with endurance

Deep Nutrition really helped me with endurance. I started to feel better as a player. I was able to run more, I was able to be more active …and I just decided to keep going with it to this day.

Radically improve your health…

Dr. Shanahan has provided a solid reference that deserves a place in the library of anyone who is seriously interested in nutrition. Her perspective on the vital role that healthy fat has in our diet is novel and, if implemented, can radically improve your health.

Pull up a chair…

I have based my work on the idea that getting the right kinds of healthy fats into your body and avoiding the worst fats is essential to optimal health. I've interviewed dozens of the world's top experts about this, and I know of no one who speaks more eloquently on this topic than Dr Cate. If she’s talking fats, pull up a chair. Take notes.

> 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.

You’ll get to meet producers of some of Americas best food including some of my heroes:

Joel Salatin–Farmer. Polyface Farms (Featured in Michael Pollan’s movie Food, Inc.)
Mark McAffee–Founder. Organic Pastures Dairy
John Wood–Farmer. US Wellness meats

When I say you’ll get to meet the experts, I mean it literally!

The day after each presentation, you’ll be able to ask the experts questions. This is your opportunity to talk directly with food crusader celebrities, including:

Jeffrey Smith–Author. Seeds of Deception
Aaron Lucich–Film Producer and Director: We are What We Eat

Along with experts on weight loss, superfoods, micronutrients, epigenetics, and more! I am definitely downloading these because there is just not enough time to listen to them all live.

Dr Cate Gets Awarded by

Speaking of food crusaders, I was recently chosen by as one of their top 15, along with Michael Pollan , Alice Waters, Jamie Oliver, and Marion Nestle. Needless to say it is quite an honor to be in such company.

And then Gets Bogged Down Making (Awesome) Summit Video

The Summit started July 8 and subscribers didn’t get the RSS feed until July 9, my bad. It was a full two months ago Sean invited me to participate in the summit and I got behind the eight ball. I started making a free bonus video for the Summit and got totally engrossed. Video making is complicated! I think you’ll enjoy the video. It’s called: Real Food, Real Fast: The Power of Cluster Shopping (scroll down to Free Bonus #6)

Video available as part of the upgrade package for Sean Croxton’s Real Food Summit

I’ve put together a survival guide of the kind of simple tips that have helped many of my patients shed unhealthy habits and transition from processed food to real food, losing unwanted pounds and pills in the process. Cluster shopping gives you tools for throwing together an endless variety of meals you love at work and at home–in as little as sixty seconds!

  1. HI, I have been following this way of eating since May 7, 2012. It took me a while for my body to adjust. I now feel great, have lost 13.5#, am never hungry and would like to continue eating this way. However, I just had labwork done and everything made me very pleased EXCEPT for my fasting BG. It went from 88 to 95! I have never had issues with my sugar, have no family hx and it has never been this high. Here are my lab results from April2012/Sept 2012: FBG 88/95; Trig 59/40; LDL 86/89: HDL 54/80; Total Chol 152/177; hsCRP 2.5/1.6. Do you recommend a repeat test for the FBG? My diet was the same the day before the test and i fasted for 13 hr. Thanks for your help! Lisa p.s. I am on no medication.

  2. I am 49 years, 6′ frame – 185 lbs. I have noticed in the past few years several changes in my body; firstly when i consume a heavy loaded carb lunch such as pasta without protein i become very lethargic and sleepy within 1 hour. I have also put the brakes on bread and pastries; occaisionally i will treat myself! Last fall while in Italy i noticed that my body did not respond with the symtoms mentioned above when i ate bread or pastry? I am learning more about my body through the food that i consume. Started drinking green smoothies (raw veggies) & have seen some wonderful benefits – feeling good & energized. Looking forward to leaning more about the affect of food and mood.

  3. Chris Kresser’s session yesterday on Eating Fish and Seafood was fantastic! Well worth the 38 minutes, and would have been worth paying for!
