Who am i?

Dr Joshua Wolrich MBBS BSc AICSM. That’s me. More letters after my name than actually in it. I’m a qualified doctor, but more recently have become a little obsessed with nutrition and exercise. I spent most of my teenage and early adult life being overweight, and flip-flopping from diet to diet like most people who are trying to lose weight end up doing. After starting to work as a doctor I felt hypocritical when telling patients that they needed to lose weight to get healthy, despite being overweight myself.

I’ve had bit of a journey on social media. I originally started my Instagram as a weight loss account by the name @unfattening. Over the past few years I have become acutely aware of the problematic nature of indiscriminately encouraging weight loss. After a rebrand to @drjoshuawolrich, I now focus on improving one’s relationship with food through addressing #nutribollocks and reminding us that there is so much more to health than our weight on the scales.
