    #145 Mindset for Freedom with Fitness, Food & Body Image, and How to do IE with Health Conditions w/ Alana Van Der Sluys

    #145 Mindset for Freedom with Fitness, Food & Body Image, and How to do IE with Health Conditions w/ Alana Van Der Sluys

    In this episode, I interview Alana Van Der Sluys from Freedom with Food and Fitness, a fellow coach and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.



    We talk about mindset work and how food is only as powerful/scary/dangerous as the story you tell yourself in your head and how lasting freedom with food, fitness and your body requires mindset work. We also talk about how to have a fun and positive relationship with fitness, overcoming "Good Girl Syndrome", letting go of the thin dream and so much more.

    #144 Self Esteem, People Pleasing, ED & Substance Abuse Recovery with Trauma Therapist Emily @yourmentalhealthbff

    #144 Self Esteem, People Pleasing, ED & Substance Abuse Recovery with Trauma Therapist Emily @yourmentalhealthbff

    In this episode, I interview Emily, @yourmentalhealthbff, about her experience with drug-induced anorexia and the very common overlap of substance abuse and eating disorders. She tells her story of asking for help, choosing recovery, and going to a wilderness rehab (something I didn't know existed). She is a licensed Trauma Therapist, so I picked her brain on self-esteem, people-pleasing, and so much more. It's a great episode!

    #142 The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying and How Thinking About the End of Your Life Can Help Your Recovery

    #142 The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying and How Thinking About the End of Your Life Can Help Your Recovery

    In this episode, I talk about a book I read last year titled "The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying" by Bonnie Ware and how thinking about the end of my life, not in a morbid way, but in a matter-of-fact way, has helped me face my fears and show up powerfully for my lie. I also read some old Instagram posts on this topic and talked about some reflections I have been having since deciding to retire from coaching. My hope is this episode gets you in action and leaves to inspired to be big, bold, and courageous in your life.

Love Cara and her insights and ideas

This podcast is amazing and always leaves me with something to think on and talk further about with my friends and husband. Love Cara and her ideas. Also recommend buying her cookbook! We use a recipe or two of Cara’s every week (seriously every week). Also follow her on insta and use her blog to help!

So Insightful!

Cara is a heart centered coach who knows so much about the diet culture and has found power to leave the diet culture and really just wants the same for others! I am learning so much about the insidious nature of diet culture. I’ve learned about fat phobia, restrictive eating, and overall displeasure with our bodies and the impact these concept have on our lives.

I’m now seeing that diet culture is so oppressive and keeps us from living a life fully. I’m so grateful to have started my journey to body acceptance and really learning to honor my body and really learning to LOVE my body and all of the ways it serves me! Thank you Cara for being the person who lead me on this beautiful journey! LOVE U!
