Diets for firefighters: What works and why?

Fitness expert and firefighter Aaron Zamzow breaks down the anatomy of a diet and how to make it work for you and the fire service lifestyle


Fire Rescue Fitness is hosting another virtual 5K the FRF Way. Event proceeds will be donated to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. You can complete the workout event anytime and anywhere, all while giving back to a great cause! Learn more here.

Firefighters today are faced with myriad options for diet and nutrition plans. Paleo, vegetarian, keto, intermittent fasting—all have their supporters and detractors. To help digest (see what I did there?) the information and determine what diet is right for you, it helps to first understand why diets work.

In this short video, I explain why any diet can help you lose weight and provide three steps to get started if you’re looking to be more deliberate about what you eat and control calories.
