Hello, I’m Claire McDonnell Liu, UK based Nutrition Advisor.

I work with individuals, families and organisations to help them to achieve their own health, food and lifestyle goals.

I have over 10 years experience delivering government, private and charitable sector food sustainability and wellbeing programmes, improving food sourcing and life quality.

Our Story

I turned to diet to help my own children’s health with stunning results.

I applied autoimmune diet protocols to resolve my son’s red, raw chronic eczema.  With the right foods and treatments his skin cleared up within 3 months and remained clear.

When my otherwise healthy daughter was diagnosed with a seizure condition, made worse by the heat in Western Australia, I researched and started her on the Ketogenic Diet.  This incredible high fat low carbohydrate diet drastically decreased her daily seizures within days and continued to over the next weeks and months.  Her sleep, balance and overall health improved too.  Her seizures were controlled by diet alone, quite an achievement from a disastrous health situation.

The keto diet has other benefits too; cognitive and brain function improvements and long lasting energy release.  This amazing diet is now used as treatment for wide ranging mental health, seizure and cancer conditions.  It is also the choice of elite athletes as part of their training.  Fascinating stuff!

My personal and professional experiences have clearly shown me the real power in nutrition. The old adage ‘you are what you eat’ is true and our health and performance will reflect the food we eat and lifestyle we live.



Leafie is named after my happy, vibrant daughter and reflects my passion for sharing my knowledge with you to enable to to steer your path to optimal health.
