17 Health And Wellness Podcasts To Get Us Inspired

By  | 


Health podcasts are definitely having a moment and have been for a while now. Ever since the first season of Serial captivated us in 2014, we’ve been listening to entertaining and/or educational podcasts whether we’re doing the dishes or commuting to work on the subway. What did we ever do to pass the time before we discovered podcasts? We don’t even want to know. The thought is way too scary.

Now that it’s fall (even though in some parts, it’s still super hot), it’s time to get serious about our goals — especially as the new year draws even closer. Whether we want to eat more green vegetables or get more sleep or just learn more about health — podcasts are a great way to do that… and here are 17 that will get you inspired.

1. Balanced Bites

Balanced Bites

Nutritionists Diane Sanfilippo and Liz Wolfe have been hosting this hilarious banter-laden podcast since 2011. They answer listener questions on health topics ranging from what carbs to eat and balancing blood sugar to making the leap to getting healthier. It’s totally like hanging out with two of your BFFs. You’ll also love the many pop culture references: while Diane and Liz make a few that confuse the other (which is part of the fun), they agree on the most important movies, like Mean Girls and Clueless. And they quote them often.

You can find this one on iTunes, Stitcher, or Spotify.
