A balanced diet can have huge health benefits, particularly when it comes to our gut. But a simple change in lifestyle can also have a positive impact on our mental health, as well as conditions such as diabetes. 

So, in this week’s Shout!Podcast, we’re discussing nutrition as a whole and the importance of achieving a healthy lifestyle – with a few simple tips along the way.

The Charity’s Health Improvement Lead, Dr Greg Lessons, discusses what it means to have a healthy and balanced diet, and reveals the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet.

You can read more about the Mediterranean Diet here.

We also hear from retired station officer Richard Harris, who says his diet spiralled out of control over several years before he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2017. However, after managing to change his lifestyle and lose 25kg in four months, he was able to get into remission without the need for medication.

Finally, Greg tells us about some healthy alternatives you can try out and how to cook on a budget. We also have a Podcast Plus this week with Greg, who explains the importance of hydration for firefighters in particular.
