You might of seen The Food Medic on Instagram. The beautiful brunette fitness guru is much more than another pretty face. Dr. Hazel Wallace is saving lives during the day and changing the diet world by night.
Back in the zone – Just Me, Myself, & I ⭐️ I've been so pumped to hit the gym today after spending all day inside shooting recipes – although I must admit the cold, rain and darkness did put me off slighlty! 😨 Anyway, I went and designed a little double circuit for myself- it was killer, I mean who programmes burpees for themselves? 😅 well, sharing is caring so obviously I'm going to let you guys in on the fun 😉 Screen shot this workout for tomorrow and tag a friend – Let's do this 🤘🏽⭐️ Circuit A (3 rounds) 1️⃣ Renegade row x 5 each arm 2️⃣ Shoulder press x 10 3️⃣ 500m run 4️⃣ Burpees x 10 Circuit B (3 rounds) 1️⃣ Goblet squats x 10 2️⃣ Kettlebell swing x 15 3️⃣ Pull up – to failure Wearing: @sweatybetty leggings, sports bra and top, and @nikewomen trainers 👟 #TheFoodMedic #HazelWallace
Her Instagram feed is filling snapshots of her workouts at the gym and healthy meal ideas. However, it isn’t just a collection of unachievable photos like many other fitness bloggers. The Food Medic is dedicated to helping people meet realistic goals and live healthy lives. In fact, Wallace makes sure not to post expensive or hard to find foods or techniques.
“I love eating wholefoods, fresh fruit, vegetables and meat, but on the flipside I’m not the type of person who will say no to wine or chocolate even if it’s full of refined sugar and transfats. What I promote is balance,” 26-year-old Hazel told The Times.
Her favorite go-to healthy meals are completely doable, even for the busy working person. Recipes such as homemade chili and butternut squash noodles fill her personal blog page.
As such a relatable authority on fitness, Wallace has amassed more than 100,000 followers and has become nabbed sponsorships from Sweaty Betty and Origins.
🎉 The Food Medic Book cover reveal! 🎉 As if this week hasn't been exciting enough, today ladies and gentlemen, I would like to reveal my book cover!! I feel like this is the last big milestone before the actual book release on May 4th!! It has been one hell of a rollercoaster 🎢 I thought I would never write something as hard and as long as my dissertation, but boy oh boy, writing a book is on a whole other level. I chose not to have a ghost writer because no one could write this book but me. I’ve poured my heart into this book. I have spoken about things that I have never been brave enough, or felt safe enough, to speak about before. I’ve stripped away the blanket of confusion that surrounds nutrition and diet, and brought you right back to the beginning – back to the basics. I’ve answered all your questions and addressed all the common food myths. I’ve designed you 70 incredibly easy, yet incredibly nutritious recipes, to help inspire you to get into the kitchen and start cooking from scratch again. I’ve shown you fundamental exercises and given you the freedom to create your own workouts with my easy-to-follow template. I’ve given you the tools and i’ve given you the truth, because I don’t want you to ever have to buy another ‘diet’ book again. I’m offering you this advice not only as a qualified doctor, or a personal trainer, but as a girl who has walked in your shoes ❤️ Finally I would like to thank @yellowkitebooks @crowntalentgroup and @carlycook30 for making this possible! #TheFoodMedic #HazelWallace #TheFoodMedicBook
Wallace has also written her own book. “The Food Medic, Recipes for Life and Fitness” is set to release in May. Wallace explains that she wrote it to change lives both as a medical doctor and personal trainer.
“I like to think of myself as one of the first of a new generation of doctors,” Wallace explains. “It is my mission to combine my knowledge as a doctor and a personal trainer, with my passion for nutrition, to debunk the myths that are out there, simplify healthy eating, and help people live healthier, happier, and longer lives.”
Treated myself to some chicken pho tonight after a busy day of work! 🍲I also cleaned the kitchen so it would be a shame to mess it up right 😉 It's officially my night off and I am putting my feet up and putting my laptop away – hope you're joining me! #TheFoodMedic #HazelWallace #SaturdayNightTakeaway
She continues to blog in her spare time between workout sessions and shifts at the hospital and she has no plans on stopping.
“The Food Medic is a product of who I am and what I do; I’m a practising doctor with a special interest in nutrition, and a qualified personal trainer,” she said.
