Hello, I'm an f2 doctor finishing in August and I still have no idea what area I want to go into. I've definitely ruled out surgery, paeds, obs etc , but still trying to decide between hospital medicine / GP / A&E (doing an F3 in A&E) . I do enjoy my job but am not 100% passionate about it. The only thing I really enjoy is health/fitness, and I love reading the science behind everything such as fat loss etc. Had never really considered trying to combine some of that with my career but trying to see if there are any possibilties to do that kind of work?

I think Sports Medicine is a thing? I don't really know anything about it though.

I think GP with a special interest might be the closest thing. Or sports and exercise medicine (if you focus more on exercise than injuries and MSK):

Some doctors also work with various athletes, sports teams etc. I think many of them are GPs or A&E doctors but other backgrounds are also likely.

Otherwise...

Bariatrics - surgeons

Endocrinology/metabolic medicine/gastro - they see patients with various weight gain/loss issues but this isn't really from a fitness perspective

Metabolic medicine maybe worth exploring with a taster week or something. You can get it into from a chem path or gim route. It's more than just young onset diabetes including a lot of rare nutritional and metabolic disorders many of us have never heard of. Lots of scope to fuel your scientific interests.
