Cliff Harvey, PhD
Cliff Harvey has a PhD in Nutrition from Auckland University of Technology (AUT), with his research focus being on ketosis, ketogenesis, and individual responses to diet. His research interests include MCTs, keto-induction, “keto-flu”, and finding appropriate carbohydrate intake for individuals based on their metabolic state, activity and ethno-genetic factors.
He is a Registered Clinical Nutritionist in New Zealand, with over 20 years of experience as a practitioner. Cliff was one of the very first practitioners to begin prescribing and working with low-carb, high-fat (LCHF), ketogenic, and lower-carb, higher-protein diets in the late 1990s. Cliff is the founder of the Holistic Performance Institute.

- Why Cliff is so interested in the physiological state of ketosis
- Is there a physiologicaly superiority for LCHF diets for fat loss?
- Ketogenic diets & neuroprotection
- Ketones, MCTs & Lion’s Mane after brain trauma/concussion
