Today, Kathy welcomes Rebecca Scritchfield, RDN, EPC, and they have a conversation about spreading the word on body kindness.
Rebecca is a well-being coach, registered dietitian nutritionist, ACSM certified exercise physiologist, and author of the book, Body Kindness: Transform your health from the inside out and never say diet again (Workman Publishing), which Publisher’s Weekly calls “a rousing guide to better health” and The New York Times Book Review calls “simple and true”.
Through her weight-inclusive Body Kindness counseling practice, Rebecca helps people reject diets and body shame to create a better life with workable, interesting self-care goals to fit individual’s needs and preferences, not society’s unrealistic weight and beauty standards.
Rebecca has influenced millions through her writing, podcast, workshops, and appearances in over 100 media outlets including NBC Nightly News, CNN, the TODAY show, O Magazine, Real Simple, Time, and many others. Rebecca is a freelance writer for The Washington Post and Self magazine, an advisor to Health Magazine (2019) and Diversify Dietetics, and a mom of two young girls. She lives in Washington, D.C., where she was recognized as one of ten “Supermom” entrepreneurs in the Nation’s Capital.
