Eating & Emotions: A Conversation with Cassie Christopher

Happy Woman with Ayurveda

Written by Heather Burkart

My mission is to empower women with a natural, holistic approach to support health so you can be strong, vibrant, and content. My focus is on your whole well being including mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Special guest Cassie Christopher joins me on the latest episode on the Her Well Being Podcast. Cassie is a registered dietician and health coach who helps women 45+ heal emotional eating. She tells us of her own journey with emotional eating and how she found a road to recovery that she now shares with the many women she’s helped through her group and one-on-one programs.

In our conversation, Cassie tells us that emotional eating is something we all do. However, for some of us, it becomes the primary way that we manage our emotions that creates a buffer against the discomfort of unpleasant feelings. This can be problematic and we discuss some of the consequences in the episode.

Emotional Eating Can Be Healed But Not With Food

I ask Cassie, can emotional eating really be healed? And how? Cassie tells us that, yes, it is possible. We can forge a way that’s healthier and kinder to ourselves. Interestingly, it has little to do with food. It’s not an overnight journey, either. It takes time as we learn how to find more compassionate ways to manage emotions.
