Diet and Fitness Writers
Diet and fitness writers work in the field of communications. Specifically, they deal with the written word, whether it is destined for the printed page, broadcast, or a computer screen. The nature of their work is as varied as the materials they produce. They may write health and fitness articles for books, magazines, and journals. They also contribute to scientific research and technical reports. Many writers promote new or traditional aspects of diet or fitness, such as the Atkins or Zone diets or the various forms of yoga. They may write advertisement copy or contribute to health and fitness segments for radio and television broadcasts.
