Food Body Soul - The Membership

is a group coaching program + sisterhood where you’ll find freedom & sanity around food, confidence in your body, and a deeper connection to yourself. 

 

 

Break free from diets, programs, protocols, rigid rules, obsessive thinking, and

body shame so you can get back to what matters most in life.

Healing your relationship with food & your body is hard. But living with a disordered relationship with food and your body is even harder. It takes a lot of energy to avoid eating certain things, doesn’t it? Always worrying about what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat - obsessively counting & tracking. 

 

Plus, waking up most days hating what you see in the mirror, feeling shame about your body, and always worrying about what you look like is exhausting. I know, because I’ve been there. 

 

If you’re like most of my clients before they start working with me, you spend a lot of time each day thinking about food and you are tired and frustrated wondering how to get out of this obsessive cycle with food and your weight. 

 

But it’s not your fault! 

 

Most conventional wisdom tells us that the answer to our food problem is more willpower and control...maybe we need to swear off sugar or gluten again or try keto or Whole 30 but the truth is the real culprit is trying to control your food in the first place. Every time we get back on a wagon, even if it’s a different wagon, we are bound to fall off of it eventually. 

 

And we’re lead to believe that the only solution to bad body image is weight loss but the truth is, that only further attaches our self-esteem to our appearance, it reinforces the belief that we have to look a certain way in order to feel confident instead of giving us a real sense of confidence, which is not conditional on body size.

 

Imagine it’s a year from now or 10 more years from now, and you are still struggling with this? How will that make you feel? 

 

All I know is that these issues with food and body don’t solve themselves, they are not things we “grow out of” with age, they follow us around like a dark cloud until we decide to work towards healing... 

 

And you do not have to go through healing alone!

Hi, I'm Cara! 

 

I spent years feeling obsessed and controlled by food. I felt like no matter what I did I was never enough. The number on the scale dictated how I felt, how’d treat myself, how I would eat. 

 

I tried doing everything I could to change my behaviors around food without realizing that focusing on behaviors was never going to lead to the sanity and freedom I wanted. 

 

I had to go deeper. I had to look at my thoughts, my beliefs, my mindset.

 

I had to learn how to trust, respect, and connect to my body, and also myself.  

 

In order to heal our relationship with food and our bodies, we have to get to the root of our behaviors, instead of trying to change them at the surface level. 

 

We have to start to look within for the answers because that’s where they are. 

 

And I’d love to help guide you back home to yourself.

SEe what LADIES In FBS have said

Erica Brunette

“I have finally set my weight loss goals aside in pursuit of real self-love and acceptance. That shift has allowed me to be much more present in my life and relationships.”

“I have struggled with my relationship with food and my body for the better part of two decades. I have spent an immeasurable amount of my life binge eating, restricting, over-exercising, worrying about my weight, hating my body, beating myself up for what I thought was a simple lack of will power.

For all these years I had kept my disordered eating and mentality about food and my body a secret, too ashamed to discuss it openly and seek support, for fear of being judged.

Then, miraculously, I found Cara through instagram.

It was liberating to talk to Cara, knowing that she could relate and fully understood my struggles. I could feel some of the weight of my burden lift after just the first call. As the weeks went on, and I diligently did the work, I could feel a significant shift in my perspective and attitude towards food and my self-image.

I would encourage anyone who feels they are missing out on life because of a constant focus on and anxiety surrounding food and self-image to enroll."

APRIL

How to release restriction (in all it’s sneaky forms) and the Diet Mentality so you stop “falling off the wagon” and losing control

“Before working with Cara allowing myself to have a Christmas cookie would have sent me straight into a binge-restrict cycle. Today, all foods are welcome and I no longer binge eat.”

- Brandi Larson

MONTHLY TheME BREAKDOWN

I am so excited to share what is waiting for you inside Food Body Soul - The Membership when you join…
 
Each month we explore a new theme to bring you closer to where you want to be with food, your body and yourself. 
 
As we work through the curriculum, we will focus on building self-trust, self-compassion, and body wisdom so you become deeply connected to yourself and how best to meet your needs. Diet Culture erodes this but through FBS I will help to guide you back to yourself. At the end of the day, you are the expert of your own life
 

MAY

How to listen to your body and respect hunger and fullness without obsession

 “I was shown a way to remove the power that food had over me. I now respect my body's hunger and fullness cues in a way I was never able to before - as the meal plan or diet I was on always dictated what when and how much I was allowed to eat. I now have enough food freedom that I can go to a restaurant and order whatever I want at the moment.”

 

- Jen Kilmov

JUNE

How to take care of your health without dieting, restricting, or control

 “Food is not an enemy anymore like it used to be. It is just food, and whatever I choose to eat is perfectly fine. If I want something sweet, I eat it. If I want a giant salad, that's what I have. Food no longer has labels of "good" or "bad". It's life-changing.”

 

- Amy Lucero

JULY

Meal Planning for intuitive eaters

“I love that she gave practical steps to take to bring me closer to the woman I want to be. And now, because I was brave enough to reach out for help, I feel so FREE!!”

 

- Alicia Brose

AUGUST

Emotional eating & expanding your coping tool kit

“Cara helped me come to realizations that I was just ignoring before—opening my eyes to the self-work that needed to be done to move forward, to heal.”

 

- Kelsey Begin

SEPTEMBER

Healing your body image

 “Today I am happier with myself and I have way more headspace that isn't surrounding what to eat, what not to eat, and how I look. I am thankful for the ways Cara has shifted my perspective on weight loss and the way I view my body.”

 

-  Guiliana Fernandez

YOUR INVESTMENT IN FBS

Ok, what is the investment for Food Body Soul - The Membership?

 

It’s absolutely possible to heal your relationship with food & your body on your own but if you have been trying to heal on your own and you’re still struggling...there is immense value in investing in help + guidance to make the process easier and more straight-forward.

 

You could read all the books, listen to all the podcasts (even mine!), follow people on social media, and try to piece it all together by yourself (which will take longer and be kinda lonely)...

 

Or you could invest in professional guidance from someone who knows how to guide you step-by-step to where you want to be + have the support of a community of women all on the same journey as you.  

 

I’ll be by side helping to take the stress and confusion away from learning to feel free and at peace around food. I’ll be there teaching you practical ways to navigate body shame and bring you closer to the confident woman you want to be

 

You’ll be surrounded by a loving community that “gets it”and is there to lift you up when you’re struggling and to cheer you on as you make progress. 

 

You could spend a lot of time, money and energy, trying to figure it out on your own, or you could instead have someone help show you the way. You’ll have my expert coaching + a group of women all working to heal from similar challenges. 

 

You’ll have opportunities every month to get coaching for your specific needs, either during our monthly coaching call, in the Facebook community, or during our virtual retreat.

 

My other group coaching programs or working with me one-on-one are thousands of dollars. 

 

This monthly coaching community is $47 a month. 

 

You’ll get a monthly masterclass, workbook & journal, a coaching call + a virtual retreat + a library of tools and it is an incredible value for the investment

 

After working as a coach for several years, I noticed the need for more accessible support! I created Food Body Soul - The Membership to be an affordable option for anyone looking to heal their relationship with food and their body. 

 

I want coaching and care to be available for anyone who wants it and needs it.

Body Wisdom and Vegan Buddha Bowls

So LEt’s Recap

When you join us in Food Body Soul - The Membership you will be greeted with loving, welcoming open arms and you gain access to:
 

  • Coaching, support & guidance from Cara and a community of women all on the same journey as you

  • A monthly masterclass on highly requested topics, a workbook, and journal prompts to guide your inner work & self-connection

  • A group coaching call with Cara to address your specific needs

  • A virtual retreat at the end of each month to come together and explore that month’s topic

  • A private Facebook community to connect with other like-minded women

  • A toolkit which is a library of resources and tools to help you take care of yourself throughout this process - it contains additional ways to cope, process emotions, and meet your needs.

  • Monthly surprise bonus's just because! (resources, recommendations, bonus podcasts, bonus workshops with guest experts, pop-up virtual dinner parties with Cara)

This is an amazing value for just $47 a month! It’s less than a cup of coffee a day.

And working with Cara 1-on-1 is many more times than the Food Body Soul membership. 
 

Now, I want to invite you to make one of two choices…

The first choice is to keep going at it alone,

fumbling around and trying to put all the pieces together. And as you know, if you’ve been doing that for a while now and are still struggling, then it might be time to try something else, which brings us to the next choice...

 

The choice to invest in yourself! In support + guidance to make this process easier,

more efficient, and less lonely.

If you already know that you want to make peace with food and feel more confident in your skin, then your choice is obvious: join us inside Food Body Soul - The Membership and start your transformation to becoming the intuitive eater and confident woman you know you are meant to be.

 

Simply click the button below and I and the rest of the community will be inside to welcome you!

 

But if you’re still on the fence, wondering if you should take the leap, let me share one last thought with you, maybe you’re thinking…

 

“How will I know this will work for me?” The truth is, you simply cannot know for sure until you try. The version of who you are right now isn’t the version of you that makes this choice, but rather the woman you’re becoming makes this choice. 

 

We make these choices from that space, that is where the power of faith comes from. And if you are noticing that fear voice comes up, it’s okay, you don’t have to choose from fear even if it’s there, you can choose from that place of faith.

 

Ready to take the leap?

IMPORTANT NOTES & FAQs

Is FBS a good fit for me?


If you are someone who struggles with food, meaning you think about food A LOT, you have tried tons of diets or programs or lifestyle changes, but nothing seems to work for very long, FBS is for you. If you feel crazy around food, if you identify as a binge eater or emotional eater, if you struggle with overeating and finding balance, FBS is for you. If restaurant menus give you anxiety, if you are struggling with seeing food as “good or bad” if you feel like you have to earn or make up for eating, FBS is for you. If you have spent most of your life hating your body, trying to control your weight, or attach your self-worth to weight then FBS is for you. If any, some, or all of the above sounds like you, then you are a good fit for FBS because this is exactly what we will be helping you work through and heal!




What if I am afraid of weight gain and fear that if I gain more weight I will feel even worse about myself?


I feel you on this, I’ve been there. The fear of weight gain is the biggest fear that keeps us stuck obsessing over food and from working towards food freedom. But the thing is, if you are living in fear of weight gain, that is THE reason to join, so you no longer have to live in this fear. When we detach our worth from our weight we take the power away from food.




What if I feel like now is not the right time?


Well, when is the right time? Do you know? If you don’t know, how long have you been putting THIS off and using “not the right time” as an excuse? What I know is, there is never really a right time, but rather, when we decide we want something we make the time for it. If you want to heal and are ready to commit to the work then now is the right time. And if you asked me, I’d say there is no coincidence that you’re reading this right now. I’d say it is your time.




When does FBS begin?


FBS begins on Thursday, April 1st for the Month of April which will officially be month 1.




When does enrollment open + close?


Doors open on March 24th and will close on April 2nd. They will open again for a few days at the beginning of each month. If doors are currently closed, grab a spot on the waitlist and you’ll receive an invitation to join as soon as doors are open.




What is the investment?


FBS is a monthly payment of only $47 (aka way less than a cup of coffee a day or a moderately priced dinner out) FBS starts with a three-month commitment to allow you to connect with yourself and the community as well as see shifts and progress in your life. Or, if you know that FBS is a perfect fit for you, you can opt into the year subscription and receive a savings of $94 (that's 2 months free).




What are the Monthly Themes?


April: How to release restriction and The Diet Mentality so you stop "falling off the wagon" and "losing control" May: How to take care of your health without dieting or restricting June: How to listen to your body and respect hunger and fullness without obsession July: Meal Planning for intuitive eaters August: Emotional eating & expanding your coping tool kit September: Healing your body image We will unveil the themes every few months and members will get to vote on which themes are next!




What is the time commitment?


FBS was designed to be flexible, simple, and supportive. It’s something you can take with you anywhere and utilize when you need it most in your life. Each month, I recommend setting aside 30-60 minutes to watch the masterclass (times vary) and an additional 15-30 minutes to work through the workbook and journal. 1 hour for the group coaching and 90 minutes for the virtual retreat. Recordings will be available if you can not join us live. So about 3-4 hours a month on average. Outside of that, you can engage as little or as much as you’d like with the community and curriculum. Everything in FBS is self-paced and can be engaged with whenever it is best for you.




Is it just for women?


At this moment yes, FBS is for any and all women and femmes looking for a safe, welcoming community where they can make peace with food, their body and connect more deeply to themselves. It’s also a great place to meet like-minded individuals and potentially even a new best friend.




Will I get to connect with Cara in FBS?


Yes! So many opportunities. Not only will Cara be in the Facebook group checking in daily to answer questions and connect, but each month there will be 3 live events you can join, the coaching call, the dinner party, and the virtual retreat.




How do I access the community?


FBS is simple, easy, and straightforward. It is hosted on a private site, where you can log in to FBS on your computer or smartphone, or another device. The interactive community is on Facebook. All information, resources, etc will be posted inside the online community.




How do I get access to the monthly masterclass, workbook, and journal? How long do I have access?


Everything will be inside the online portal. The masterclass, workbook, and journal prompts will be accessible at the beginning of each month. You can download the workbook and journal to keep with you and work through at your own pace. They will be removed at the end of the month and the new month’s content will be added.




How do I join the Coaching Calls and Mini Retreats? How long do I have access to the recordings?


All the details for when each live event is will be hosted inside the FBS community! The time and date for the coaching call and monthly retreat will be announced at the start of the month. Everything will take place over zoom and the details will be easy to find inside the community. The coaching call recording will be available until the end of the month for you to watch if you can’t join live or to revisit if you want to tune in again. You will have access to the Retreat recording for one week so you can revisit or watch if you cannot make it live.




Is there a Facebook Community?


Yes, details for the community and how to join are all within the FBS community.




What is the refund & cancellation policy?


Since time, intention, and space are necessary to healing and growth, FBS starts with a three-month commitment to allow you the opportunity to connect with yourself, the community and see progress in your life. However, if after 3 months you feel it’s not the right fit, you can cancel your membership, no questions asked. Due to the nature of the experience, there are no refunds.




What FBS is not:


FBS is not a substitute for therapy, any other medical condition, or eating disorder treatment. If you have an eating disorder this could be a supplement on the side of your care and I recommend talking with your treatment team and/or health care professional to determine if this will be supportive to you.
