Heard on Olympic & Bundy - Anna Baker suffered from chronic fatigue for years.
It wasn't until the Sydney, Australia, native met an alternative doctor who cleaned up her diet that she began feeling better once and for all.
"She put me on the strictest raw food diet ever. I would never suggest it to anyone, but it's really what changed me, and I noticed how much you can change by what you put in," she said.
Baker is now living in Los Angeles helping others feel better and clean up their diet as well.
She's the founder and principal nutritionist for Nutrition Journey, LLC, a company that offers customized meal plans, assessments on one's specific nutritional needs, kitchen makeovers, healthy shopping tips and will even answer texts from clients about what to order off of a menu at a restaurant.
She joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about about her passion for nutrition, to debunk some common diet myths and more.
