There are so many sources of information on health and fitness these days that it can be really difficult to narrow down the best books, podcasts or events to invest your time and money with.
We asked Hazel Wallace a.k.a The Food Medic for her top recommendations for resources to increase your knowledge – check them out below.
- Precision Nutrition – The best for newbies looking to grasp the basics of nutrition with easy to read articles and infographics written by nutrition and fitness experts.
- The Rooted Project – This event series was set up by two registered dietitians in London. You don’t need any nutrition knowledge, or qualifications, to come to their events. They choose speakers who are leaders in their field who are able to translate the science into interesting and practical content.
- Food and Nonsense – set up by a registered dietitian, Helen, as a fun way to discuss nutrition and to provide a sound source of information for people who are interested in their diet and their health. She aims to translate the science of nutrition into simple and practical advice that can be applied to everyday life.
- Ben Coomber Radio – A podcast which I first listened to as a university student. Ben is very much a straight talking guy. There’s no science jargon here, but he offers pretty sound advice on everything nutrition, food, mindset, exercise, and sports performance.
- THE FOOD MEDIC – To be completely honest with you, when I first delved into the world of nutrition I couldn’t find anything out there that offered the basics of nutrition for a complete beginner. I noticed a gap between the information available for the scientists and information available for the general public, which is one of the main reasons why I wrote my book. I want to make evidence-based nutrition more accessible, less complex, and easy to follow.
