On this week’s Real Health podcast, Karl Henry chats to the hugely popular Food Medic, Dr Hazel Wallace. 

Louth-born Wallace started her blog on healthy eating and exercise whilst studying medicine and in the years since, her unique blend of expertise and knowledge has proven to be a big hit in the UK

Her focus is on preventative medicine and the importance of lifestyle, and she wants doctors to be looking at patients’ nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management.

“It’s more difficult for GPs to prescribe exercise rather than a pill,” she says. 

On the podcast, Dr Wallace has some great tips for those wanting to improve their lifestyle and she also advises not to avoid small treats as a means of rewarding yourself for reaching your own milestones.

To contact Karl with any health and fitness questions for the show you can email  realhealth@independent.ie or reach him on Twitter Twitter @karlhenrypt and don’t forget to start living happier and healthier lives every single day.
