Overview

Many of us have probably tried a diet at one point or another. But in reality, diets fail people far more often than they work. In fact, studies show that up to 95% of diets fail, and most people gain the weight back within one to five years.

If we think about the modern 'diet,' it really is no wonder that most people aren't set up to succeed. Some require expensive and prepackaged 'health' foods, while others require commitment to extreme regimens. These can't be sustained in the long term.

The world of science has progressed immensely, yet nutrition seems to lag behind. So many more of us are overweight than throughout history. The solution is simpler than you'd think. We need to get back to traditional eating and shift our diets away from the over-processed foods that dominate supermarkets today.

In Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, doctor and biochemist Catherine Shanahan shares her antidote to damaging nutritional habits. Her plan is based on extensive research on different diets from around the world, combined with the latest science in epigenetics. According to Shanahan, eating 'traditional' foods will help our body get the most out of what we put in.

Favorite Quote

"Epigenetic researchers study how our own genes react to our behavior, and they've found that just about everything we eat, think, breathe or do can, directly or indirectly, trickle down to touch the gene and affect its performance in some way."
