Rectangle 58

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.

In this episode, I chat with Hope Pedraza, who is a certified Pilates Instructor, certified personal trainer, Certified Holistic Nutritionist specializing in plant-based nutrition, completing her education to be a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) as well as a blogger and podcaster. She is the founder of inBalance, a pilates based boutique fitness franchise that is changing bodies and souls.

Hope helps women lose weight and heal their body with a plant-focused diet and uses movement and nutrition to lead others to live with purpose.

We dove into the topic of healing the gut with plant-based nutrition. Some of the topics we discussed include:

  • What are the real benefits of a plant-based diet?
  • How can a plant-based diet help heal the gut?
  • What are some of the biggest sources of digestive issues?
  • What are some of the biggest causes of food sensitivities?
  • How does inflammation affect digestion?
  • Why is fiber so important?
  • What about people with severe digestion issues?
