This week on the podcast, I have the pleasure of sitting down with Registered Dietician, Exercise Physiologist, and Author Rebecca Scritchfield for a juicy conversation about dieting and diet culture, true health and wellness, and how to be kinder to your body.
Spoiler alert: Rebecca says that health grows from love and kindness, and not the judgmental, negative chatter or the rigid rules around food and exercise.
So grab a hot cup of something and settle in for an inspiring conversation around health, happiness, and becoming a caregiver for your own body.
I’d love to hear from you!
