Hi! I�m Becky, the Registered Dietitian with Sparkpeople. I live on my �family farm� in southern Indiana with my husband, daughter, and son. It is a small rural community. The closest fast food restaurant is 20 miles away and the nearest shopping mall requires a 50 minute drive. Yes, it is slightly slower-paced, but a pace that I cherish.

I enjoy working in my vegetable garden, preparing new recipes, sewing, and walking in my woods with my canine companions, Roxie and Cassius. My children will tell you that I am fixated on eating meals together as a family at the kitchen table. This is often the only chance to connect and catch-up. It is a time to comfort the pains of the day and celebrate the joys of living.

I also admit that I am a techno-nerd. I do not Twitter. I cannot Facebook. Heck, I don�t even own a cell phone. However, I do enjoy connecting with others at Sparkpeople as we journey together to improve our health. So join me, as we:

Ignite our inner fire,
Fuel the blaze daily,
And spread the SPARK to others.

Nutritionally Yours, Dietitian Becky

    I love your goals. I admire living more simply. Those electronics suck up allot of time that's for sure. I look forward to learning more about proper nutrition, myths etc. . emoticon

    Hi Becky.
    I have a question for you because I'm a little bit confused about protein and fiber here on SP mention a lot about fiber and my nutrition said for me to get protein the reason is I had 2 years ago gastric sleeve, I lost about 70lbs and know for the past year didn't lose any more I do walk and two to 4 times Zumba a week that's why she told me to had more proteins so please can you help me understand better the differences.
    Thank you very much

    I have just read the thread "Dieting: Have we really just over-complicated it?" Thank you so much for your intelligent and realistic input on the subject. It hit home with me and I am sure it did with many other people as well.
