Dr. Joshua Wolrich BSc (Hons) MBBS MRCS, is a full-time NHS surgeon in the UK with a passion for helping people improve their relationship with food. One of the few men in the industry addressing weight stigma and diet culture, you can find him on Instagram regularly combating spurious nutrition information and fad diets. He is always reminding us that there’s so much more to health than our weight.
After delving into the complexities of weight science and the ‘health at every size’ approach, Dr Joshua realised that he had to make a public and deliberate shift away from promoting weight loss online. His authenticity and willingness to be open and honest has subsequently caused him to gain great popularity in the digital world and has enabled him to work with global brands for example Hello Fresh, Smart Energy and Omron. Joshua has since been a finalist for a 2019 Shorty Award in Health & Wellness, along with being shortlisted for Best Instagram at the 2019 Health Blog Awards UK & IRE. In order to spread his message even further, Dr Joshua has most recently turned his talents to podcasting and has also launched his book ‘Food isn’t Medicine: Challenge Nutribollocks and Escape the Diet Trap’.
