Having graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a degree in microbiology, and University College Cork in 1995 with a master's degree in nutrition, Anna Burns has amassed over seventeen years' experience in the field of nutrition. With experience ranging from working in New Zealand's food supplement industry, to living and working in France, Anna returned to Ireland in 1999 to work in health promotion with the Irish Health Board. She now runs her nutrition consultancy from Cork and delivers corporate nutrition training countrywide. She runs two weight-loss clinics in Cork and has a 'no gimmicks' approach to fat loss. Anna currently lives with her husband and four children, who have, unwittingly, been her subjects for testing her old-fashioned approach to healthy eating for years.
