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

    My hat's off to you for your calm responses on the keto diet message board. I don't follow that diet and wouldn't as I'm not a fan of any diet that is so restrictive. did a little research and seems like this diet isn't al that healthy long term.

    Looking forward to your article.

    Hi Becky! I hope you are doing well. I have a question. Does spark people have tools for measuring "lean body mass", "body fat mass", and "body fat%" as these are listed on the tracking for weight and other measurements? If so, where would I find it? I really would like to see what it these are for me. I have tried using tools on the internet but find that I am getting answers that are really way either greater or lesser than the week before, so I figure something is not right. Could you please help me here? Thank you in advance. Here is trusting you are having a great day!
