Eating 1,200 Calories Will Not Get You ‘Toned’

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Let’s say you’re trying to gain lean muscle… in other words, look like you actually workout. Well, without the proper nutrition, gaining muscle will be very difficult. ⁠⠀

You’ll likely need to eat more calories than usual and actually (gasp!) gain a little scale weight in order to achieve that goal. ⁠

By eating more calories while focusing on a strength training regimen, you’ll increase your lean body mass and increase your metabolism, ultimately changing your physique. That’s when you look ‘toned.’ ⁠

You can’t gain lean muscle and lose fat and remain in a significant caloric deficit all at the same time. If you want to gain muscle and burn fat you’ve got to eat more. And that means more than 1,200 calories per day for most active women. Yes, you need to EAT in order to gain muscle. ⁠⠀

Do you have trouble building muscle? ⁠If you’re ready to commit to a strength training program and build some muscle, StrongMadeSimple is for you!
