About This Show
Because real health is about being good to yourself. Body Kindness is the place where all bodies fit - and weight is just a number. I’m your host Rebecca Scritchfield RDN, author of the book Body Kindness.
I believe we all have an enormous power to change diet culture - one voice at a time. I talk to people from all walks of life about their journey to a better wellbeing. From food to family to sex, you never know what will come up in an episode.
Plus, once a month, my good friend Bernie Salazar, the Season 5 At Home winner of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, I check in with each other on how we're doing at our own Body Kindness practice for mutual support and accountability.
Changing habits isn’t easy. But when your goals come from a place of kindness you really can become your healthiest and happiest self. Tune in to start your journey!

#15 - It's My #BookBirthday, Let's Celebrate Body Kindness
Dec 27 16
December 27, 2016 is a day I won’t soon forget. It’s the official “due date” of my “book baby” (yes, we all lovingly refer to “her” as a member of our family).
This book is my voice. It’s also my life experiences that shaped the Body Kindness philosophy and who I am today. Filled with tools and exercises I have been using in my counseling practice for years, this book will take you through the necessary steps to reject dieting, make peace with food and your body, and set new goals to create meaningful change in your life.
In this podcast episode, my good friend and Body Kindness accountability partner (and former chronic dieter / Biggest Loser “winner”) Bernie Salazar and I chat about how we reconnected at just the right time when Bernie needed a new approach to health. Dieting didn’t work, Biggest Loser didn’t work. Not doing anything didn’t work. (If you’re a new listener, check out all of season one episodes 1-14 to get a feel for how we got together and Bernie’s mindset and life started to shift.)
We’ll talk you through the ins and outs of how Body Kindness is designed to help you make better choices and become a more compassionate person.
