Top 10 Healthy Living Podcasts

by Nellie

Podcasts have been around since forever, but since the amazing real life crime solving thriller called Serial, podcasts have gained great popularity and there is a vast amunt of information available from music mixes, to business, fashion and of course healthy living podcasts. (Updated January 2017)

Here are the Top 10 Healthy Living Podcasts

(according to me at least!)

Top 10 healthy living podcasts

1) What You Can When You Can

Carla Birnberg and Roni Noone have an awesome What You Can When You Can Podcast that talks about everything healthy living in a super approachable/girlfriend kind of way. I am a huge fan of these two both online and in person as they both have inspired me to blog about my own healthy living journey.

2) Runbuzz

I first heard about RunBuzz radio at Fitbloggin Savannah–I was brand new to my running journey and had barely run 4 miles. I love this podcast because it is for all levels, Steve Carmichael is a running coach that gives awesome advice and I have learned so much from this podcast!

3) Wellness Mama Podcast

The Wellness Mama Podcast is great, she talks about all things healthy living  for moms and family but in a way that is suitable for all levels. There is endless knowledge in the archives. (Thats the great thing about podcasts–they are like blog posts, they never get deleted so all the information is still available!)

4) The Paleo Project

For those of you who follow or looking to follow a paleo diet! The Paleo Podcast has a ton of information on intermittent fasting and following a paleo lifestyle.

5) Fit Girl: Your Guide to Getting In Shape

The Fit Girl Podcast gives a step by step guide to weight management while addressing the deeper issues that may be triggering unhealthy eating habits.

6) Half size me

The Half Size Me podcast shares super inspirational stories of people who have lost weight and kept it off.

7) Fitness Magazine Podcast

This is not from your normal Fitness Magazine Podcast–this one is from Suuth Africa and the accents are so awesome (just saying!). They talk about everything from dieting to gym etiquette and they are quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

8) Nutrition Diva: Quick and dirty tips for eating well and feeling fabulous

The Nutrition Diva Podcast separates fact from fiction when it comes to nutrition. I know I am not the only one that hears conflicting information about carbs, protein and everything else food–she breaks down how to make small changes to make you feel fabulous!

9) Psychology Of Eating

The Psychology of Eating Podcast is a fantastic listen that dives right into the ins and out of our eating habits and gives knowledge on how to get eating habits under control…with your mind!

10) Fat 2 Fit Radio Podcast

The Fat 2 Fit Radio Podcast has not been updated in a while but don’t judge the podcast based on it’s name! This podcast has loads of great nutritional information that never gets old.

I’m filing this info in the “fitness drawer” part my brain for reference’s sake. Thank you for the list, Nellie.

My husband swears by podcasts. He commutes a lot so listens often. I’ve been meaning to check some out myself or even produce one because I love to talk health and wellness. I can’t wait to check out some of these. I also plan to share socially because this is right up my alley. Thank you.

Britt March 23, 2015 - 9:25 pm

I was just thinking I should start listening to podcasts when I am walking! I did not listen to serial but I understand it is very good. I love Jillian Michaels after seeing her at the IDEA conference last year.

Leslie March 24, 2015 - 7:55 pm

Aw man. I love podcasts for passive learning (hello long commutes). Definitely interested in Fit Girl and Half Size Me. Thanks for the recommendations!

Tamara March 24, 2015 - 10:08 pm

I’ve seen Carla’s name here and there! I’ll have to take a listen.
I wish I had listened to more podcasts during my data entry. I think it would have gotten me more excited!

Cassandre March 24, 2015 - 11:03 pm

I am clearly missing out. I haven’t been listened to a lot of podcasts in a while. thanks

Steve Carmichael March 24, 2015 - 11:17 pm

Thanks Nellie! I am honored that you like my RunBuzz podcast. Thank you SO MUCH for the podcast love! I am humbled to even be mentioned among these other great shows!

I’ve never listened to a healthy living podcast but I think I am going to check a few of these out!

Kristin March 27, 2015 - 10:34 am

Some running specific podcasts I really enjoy are: Another Mother Runner, Marathon Training Academy and Runner Academy. The AMR podcast is like listening to chatter of best running friends and super fun. The other two offer great interviews and training tips. Good stuff.

I also listen to the No Meat Athlete podcast. It’s good and has helpful information even for people who aren’t vegan. I listen to podcasts almost exclusively when I’m running and the time zooms by!

misszippy April 7, 2015 - 10:53 am

Great line up! I am just now becoming a podcast listener (I’m so behind the times!) and am always looking for new ones. I’d add in Runners Connect, too!

Nellie April 12, 2015 - 10:48 am

Ooh thanks!! Adding that to the list!
