My name is Clémence Cleave - or just Clem.
I am a registered nutritionist (ANutr) with a MSc in Clinical Nutrition (with Distinction and prize for Top Student in Clinical Nutrition). I am also a trained-chef (Alain Ducasse) with Michelin Star experience - although I do prefer family cooking!
I am French and I have been living in London for fifteen years with my British husband and our three children.
I help individuals and families to address their nutritional needs, whether it is to lose weight, restore a healthy relationship with food, enhance their sport performance or to eat more broadly or ethically.
My ethos is that we can and should all eat well – eating good and tasty food to fuel our minds and bodies. But this needs to be adapted to our lives. Many of my clients have crazy schedules and I work with them to lock in nutrition.
I believe in science-based nutrition – many popular and famous theories about nutrition are seductive yet simply fallacious. Everything I do is based on robust scientific evidence. All my advice is backed up by solid research, which I'll be delighted to share with you if you're interested.
Each individual has different tastes, a different story, a different body and a different lifestyle. While the principles of nutrition are the same for everyone – eat, in the right amount for you, a varied and balanced diet, mainly plant-based – I believe the ways to implement such a healthy diet are multiple. Taking your individuality into account, I can make food work for you, not against you.
I am also a digital volunteer for Beat, the UK's eating disorder charity, providing support to people suffering from an eating disorder and their carers.
