START SPIRALING UP
It’s not about your weight. Or your pants size. It’s not about how many calories you burn. Or how hard you work to avoid delicious food you love.
It’s about awareness.
It’s about self-compassion.
It’s about mindfulness.
IT’S ABOUT JOY
As an overweight, middle-aged dude, I was concerned that Rebecca’s background seemed to be working with women. But, after interviewing her, I was comfortable it was a good fit.
We have worked together for about a year, and she has patiently helped me put together a plan that includes a food log, and exercise that fit my lifestyle and schedule. She has been non-judgmental and firm but encouraging through my numerous stops and starts.FB
Just wanted to reach out to say thank you for all the support you gave me to transition to a healthy eating plan after my last “crash diet.” I am enjoying good food every day, no longer restricting or binge eating. Still exercising and feeling great. I don’t know how I would have been able to get there without your help. I have all my notes and refer to them often.DR
That year I spent with you had a lasting impact on my life in a positive way. Although I signed up for WW and tried it for 3 months, I kept hearing your voice and why I ended up canceling and getting “refocused”. Meeting with you last week, listening to the podcast this morning is the drill of positive energy and helps make impactful/healthy decisions. I sure wish what i know now, I knew 30 years ago. Hopefully, I will be able to pass this health and happiness to my girls!AB
I did not know what I was looking for in a nutritionist, but I did know that I was done with diets and wanted to develop a healthy relationship with food. Rebecca is leading me on a journey to do just that.
She identified my core problems with food, mainly that I was prone to over-restricting (and therefore under-eating) with intermittent binges. After only a few sessions with Rebecca, I feel so much happier and healthier. Until Rebecca identified my emotional eating habits, I did not realize that I was using food to stifle difficult feelings. Now Rebecca is working with me to help me get in touch with my “intuitive eater.”MS
I am an elite runner and have been working with Rebecca for awhile. She is the best thing that happened to me! She is not only knowledgable but she is motivating and caring. Rebecca has taught me everything from balanced and mindful eating to fueling properly for my sport to maximize performance. I feel so lucky to have learned from Rebecca. She is top notch in her field!!KV
I was looking for a nutritionist who was knowledgeable, and could provide solutions to the challenges I was facing with food. Rebecca has been fantastic!!! Rebecca helped me see the connection between stress and food choices. She got me into yoga, something I didn’t think I would like, and I was wrong. I love it and am excited to make it part of my exercise and self-care routine. I learned it’s easier to eat well when you’re less stressed. Rebecca can help you get to the bottom of your food challenges as well.EH
Rebecca truly understands the emotional component of food addiction. It ‘s not enough to intellectually know what to do. She helps you deal with the “inner kid” who keeps you from doing what’s in your own best interest.
I highly recommend her even if you’re just beginning your journey toward healthy living.MB
My only regret is that I did not have time for more sessions this summer, since I will be returning to school soon. But Rebecca has promised to stay in touch via email, Skype, and phone, and after only a week away she has stayed true to her promise.
Rebecca can help you get to the bottom of your problems with food, and she will guide you in developing a lifestyle plan that works for you and your body. I really could not be happier with this experience.LM
Words can’t express how much Body Kindness® has changed my life. Through this process, I realized I had a borderline eating disorder. But because I wasn’t starving myself, or purging, doesn’t mean I wasn’t suffering from a true disorder. Through this, I have taken BK to the streets and share something new in my fitness class every day. I have had women thank me for opening their eyes about the torture they were doing to themselves and their families. So thank you, Rebecca, you’re changing lives. You’re helping us women see the beauty we had all along but couldn’t, because social media and fads are always telling us we aren’t enough.JV
