#130 Breathwork for Emotional Eating (How to Feel Your Feelings)
If you identify as an emotional eater, or someone who eats their feelings, you might not be sure how to actually feel your feelings, this breathwork practice will show you how to feel & process your emotions. I do not see emotional eating as a problem, rather I see it as a check-engine light, inviting you to look under the hood so you can learn more about ourself and your needs. This practice is a perfect way to do just that!

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!
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!
