The Healthy Hour Podcast is brought to you by Richard and Karen Insley, health professionals from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Our goal is to deliver an informative, easy to understand podcast where we will share our experience and views on the ever-changing world of health, diet, weight loss and fitness. We want to cut out a lot of the jargon which often just confuses people more and also distinguish between what's marketing and hype and get down to what works and what doesn't for health, fitness, diet and fat loss.
