Deborah Murtagh is an innovator, researcher, author and expert in wholefoods nutrition and mind-before-body weight loss. After 25 years and 20,000 hours clinical experience, she’s the leading authority on the implementation of the ketogenic diet in the real world.

Through her transformational programs and sell-out international retreats, Deborah has helped over 40,000 women from 48 countries understand what to eat and think to master weight loss for life.

By removing barriers like weight and health issues, members are empowered to reach their full potential, inspiring those around them.

Deborah volunteers her time to medical research and has co-authored one of the world’s most important diet research studies in history, showing that diet can dramatically improve the quality of life in patients with Parkinson’s Disease. She is now embarking on a new study to determine whether diet has the potential to impact Alzheimer’s.

Deborah’s greatest two missions in life are to empower women to transform their lives and to help create a global shift in consciousness so the medical fraternity recognises diet as a legitimate treatment option for chronic disease.

Grace Mortimer

Grace studied Neuroscience and Nutrition, which gave her a deep understanding of how our body is an amazing interconnected system that needs to be treated holistically - mind, body and soul - not as individual parts.

Grace thrives off teaching others about how the body functions so they can regain control of their health and flourish. By targeting lifestyle determinants like diet, stress, sleep patterns and gastrointestinal health you can go far deeper than treating the apparent symptoms and address the root cause of most health conditions to create lasting health.

As an avid 'foodie' Grace has always loved the process of sourcing good food, creating delicious meals and feeding everyone around her. She also has a passion for the outdoors, tramping, camping and all things in the sun!
