Fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) workers are faced with the challenge of being time poor due to an ever-changing routine, which can impact their diet and exercise patterns. Salomae Haselgrove speaks with two dieticians to see how FIFO workers can live a healthy life.
Nutritional medicine practitioner, Michele Chavelley Hedge, reveals the keys to a good lifestyle. The good news is, they’re not as hard as some might think.
FIFO workers have significantly higher chance to be overweight or obese than their non-FIFO counterparts, research indicates. In 2013, 79 per cent of FIFO workers fit into the two categories, compared to 64 per cent of the general population in Australia.
