WELCOME TO
FOOD BODY SOUL

ARE YOU TIRED OF STRUGGLING
WITH FOOD AND HATING YOUR BODY?

 

Let's start here. Check all that apply to you.
I am here because….

If any or all of the above applies to you,
you are in the right place.​

YOU DESERVE TO FEEL PEACE,
FREEDOM, & SANITY WITH FOOD
AND COMFORTABLE & CONFIDENT
IN YOUR BODY.

.And it's 100% possible!

You’ve probably been led to believe that you’ll have more confidence, more love, more fun, more happiness, (I’m sure you could keep filling in the blanks) and that everything will be okay on the other side of weight loss.

 

But what has your life become as a result of following this path? Has the pursuit of a smaller body and food control delivered you to true happiness, freedom, and all that your soul desires? 

Or has it just left you in a cycle where you feel crazy around food and hating yourself because you hate your body? 

If so, I want you to know that you don't have to keep living like this.

AND IF YOU'RE HERE,
I AM CURIOUS...

Do you want to spend more time in the restrict-binge cycle, obsessively thinking about food, and constantly judging your body?

 

Do you have more energy to give towards trying to shrink yourself to a weight that isn't natural for you? 

 

Do you want to spend another however many years you’ve been at this, trying to make weight loss occur, likely without any long-term effect while your weight continues to increase over time with each attempt? 

 

Do you want the continued stress, emotional difficulty, and anxiety that comes with all that?

 

How much more time, money, energy, and brain space do you have left to give before you will finally say enough is enough? 

 

How tired are you of this cycle?

 

How done are you with fighting food? 

 

Is body acceptance something you are willing to work on if it means peace and freedom with food?

 

Is taking a weight-neutral approach to health something you are willing to work on if it improves not just your physical but also your mental and emotional health?

 

Is working on removing your internalized fatphobia something you are willing to work on so you can stop judging your body and all other women's bodies because you can not judge your own body without also saying something about all women's bodies?

...or are you READY for a
different way to live?

A WAY OF LIFE...

That offers real and sustainable peace of mind.

That offers freedom and sanity around food, where food is no big deal, it’s just a casual, yet pleasurable, part of life.

Where you are not stressing out about what others might be thinking of what you are eating. 

Where you can be in social settings and feel calm, confident, present, and at peace. 

Where the scale, the size of your jeans, or the flatness of your stomach doesn’t dictate your mood. 

Where you can stop hating your body and enjoy yourself regardless of your size.
 

FOOD BODY SOUL

— The Academy 

will show you the way.

If you have had enough with the restrict-binge cycle, yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, binge eating, constantly judging and shaming your body, and you’re ready for self-love and acceptance then this is for you.

The Academy:

The Monthly Breakdown of

FOOD BODY SOUL

THE FIRST 5 WEEKS ARE ALL ABOUT FOOD: 

We start out healing your relationship with food. You will be learning everything you need to know to free yourself from emotional eating, binge eating, restriction, and obsessive thought patterns. You will learn to take care of your health without dieting, how to listen to your body, and become an intuitive eater.

THE SECOND 5 WEEKS ARE ALL ABOUT BODY IMAGE:

Next, we focus on body image- you will learn practical skills for healing your body image, overcoming objections to body acceptance, how to cultivate self-love, and separate your worth from your weight. Plus we will be learning all about Body Wisdom, creating a strong connection between your body & mind. Plus get ready for a radical shift in perspective about bodies, weight, and self-worth. 

THE LAST 6 WEEKS ARE ALL ABOUT SOUL (AKA SELF):

Lastly, Soul is all about your relationship with yourself. Obsessing about food and your weight takes up so much time, energy, brain space, and identity, so when you've done the work to heal, now what? Who are you and who do you want to be? This is all about self-reflection, self-connection, self-compassion, and self-love. You will connect more deeply to who you truly are and learn to live a big, juicy life outside of food that is in alignment with your values!

Each module includes additional resources and recommendations as well (books, podcasts, blogs posts, YouTube Videos etc.)

Hey there Beauty, I'm Cara

Cara new pictures palm springs 2 (1).jpg

I am music obsessed, love living in Los Angeles, and am one of those annoying Disneyland addicts! When I am not supporting my incredible clients you will find me cooking, eating, singing, dancing, and enjoying an Aperol spritz with my friends. 

 

As a Health & Life Coach and Breathwork Facilitator, I’m on a mission to help women heal their relationship w/ food, body & beyond. As part of my mission, I am also the published author of two books, Body Wisdom and Vegan Buddha Bowls, as well as the host of my podcast called Love Your Bod Pod. 

 

But before I became the Cara you know today, I existed in a place of chaos where I was stressed, depressed, and obsessed with controlling food and my weight for over a decade. 

 

It felt like the more I tried to shrink my body, the more my life shrank right along with it. 

 

But eventually, I got to a place where I said "enough is enough" and did the work necessary to truly make peace with food and my body so I could access the life that dieting promised, but never delivered. Once I committed to doing this work, my life unfolded in the most beautiful of ways.

 

Originally, I was terrified to release control by letting go of obsession around my body and food. But loosening my grip on dieting and weight control didn’t actually result in my life falling apart...it resulted in it falling together.

 

Once the pieces fell into place and all the dots connected, I started coaching women like you through this healing journey. Since then I’ve guided hundreds of women to true self-love, self-worth, and inner peace. It’s time to claim your freedom by jumping into the literal pool of life through the expansive experience of Food Body Soul - The Academy.

 

Girl, we're ready to welcome you with open arms.

About There Experience Working With Cara

Ali Bonar

“I feel so grateful to have stumbled upon Cara's group because it provided me with the tools to be vulnerable and supported in an intimate and safe space.”

"After dabbling with solo therapy, I realized that a crucial part of my recovery was halted because of lack of a group support system. I feel so grateful to have stumbled upon Cara's group because it provided me with the tools to be vulnerable and supported in an intimate and safe space. The women I met in the group are incredible, and I gained even more from their sharing than my own. Cara's expertise helped guide our calls and provided us with key takeaways and homework each week. I can confidently say that I have grown exponentially since joining the group."
