About the Author : Becca Tebon

I don’t believe in diets or deprivation, and I think exercise should be pleasurable, not a punishment. In my weight-loss world, you can have your cake and eat it too…and still lose the weight. From desolate, defeated & done to a dedicated life living my destiny helping others feel, look and be the best they can! Hi, Iam Becca, shortly after I awakened, I started BeccaTebonFIT because I realized others felt the same as me and let their adversities and "nouns" (people, places and things) hold them back. Life's immense changes have changed me and my life! My once sickened body is strong and my mind feels sexy. I've committed to helping others with their health, weight loss and feeling better about who they are and decode their gaps so they can see clearly what is missing and how to get it. Iam not done growing— I intentionally evolved and becoming a better person, mom, friend, coach, speaker, God's girl. Every day. I have been in wellness since birth — as a patient. And now, Iam a certified holistic health coach and started my professional fitness career at 19. My expert support includes: Mindset/Self Love, Body, Nutrition, Energy, Green Living and Food/Recipes, that guide you with proven tactics and science-based research to live a lifestyle of health, a life filled with happiness — on purpose and with intention and gratification.
