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.

What People Say
“The most important thing I learned from Rebecca was on day one. She looked me in the eyes and said life does not start at a size smaller. You are missing out for no good reason. It was the tipping point in my journey to real wellness. It helped break down my barriers of exercise helped me overcome emotional eating and gave me peace I desperately needed.” — S.V.
“Rebecca always says “stop shoulding on yourself.” I have a strong inner voice that expects me to be perfect and criticizes most of the time. I learned this voice is basically my mom and even though I’m a mom myself I have not been able to shake this feeling that nothing is ever good enough. To cope, I would eat in secret. Rebecca has helped me deal with that voice and find my real voice – the one that wants me to be happy and healthy. I am doing my best to listen to that part of me.” — H.K.
