AA 077: JJ Beasley on Being a Male Food Blogger and Dietitian in a Female-Dominated Space

 

This week I’m chatting with JJ Beasley, the man behind the food account @beazysbites on Instagram! Not only is JJ an influencer in the health and wellness space, but he is also currently studying to become a registered dietitian. In this episode, JJ talks about how he found his passion for health and fitness and what led him to create his Instagram account. We talk about what it’s like for him to be a male in such a female-dominated space, what it’s like being one of the only men in RD classes, and why we think that health and wellness is so saturated with women. We talk about male attitudes toward health and fitness and whether men struggle with the same things as women. We discuss staying healthy in college and how men in college respond to healthy eating. JJ also talks about his experience with CrossFit, how he balances work, school, and staying healthy, and his top tips for getting your boyfriend to eat better food!

Make sure you follow JJ on Instagram at @beazysbites, and you can also find him on Facebook at Facebook.com/beazysbites!
