Greg Lessons, Nutristionist, UK Emergency Services Games

Who is Greg Lessons?

Greg was a firefighter for seventeen years, toward the end of which he undertook an MSc in Human Nutrition. His dissertation focused on the dietary behaviour of firefighters and concomitant prevalence of overweight and obesity within this occupational group, which led to the development of a fire-station based dietary and lifestyle intervention pilot trial. This pioneering work yielded significant results and showed high feasibility. Greg presented his work at the 2017 Nutrition Society Winter Conference, winning the award for best original communication.
