Rebecca Scritchfield is a registered dietitian nutritionist in Washington DC. She reaches millions through her appearances on national television, newspapers and magazines, and blogs for US News and World Report. Her new book, Body Kindness, is the distillation of the approach she has developed and refined working with hundreds of private clients.

In this interview, Rebecca shares her unique approach to developing the healthy attitudes and behaviors that effortlessly lead to healthier diets and bodies—without beating ourselves up or denying ourselves the things we love. In fact, Rebecca might argue that if your diet doesn't include things you love, it can't be considered healthy.

  • How to create an upward spiral of health
