How to Get ‘Toned’

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.

I hear it all the time… “I don’t want to get big. I just want to look toned.” ⠀⁠⠀
Ladies, don’t let ‘toned’ become a substitute for STRONG. Yes, you can be strong and not look like a man! ⁠⠀
What you want is STRENGTH. If you want to change the way your body actually LOOKS (aka your body composition) you need MUSCLE on your body. You also need FOOD to build it. ⁠

how to get toned
I know it’s annoying to hear, but you can’t out train a bad diet. While I’m all for eating what you want, a diet composed of protein cookies and low-carb pasta noodles won’t likely get you the results you want. Real, wholesome food, ones with nutrients and fiber, are the way to go. Your body loves these foods and will put them to good use! ⁠
“Toned” means losing fat while building a bit of muscle. ⁠I know we all have our own personal preference when it comes to how much muscle is too much muscle, but here’s the truth: It’s not easy to build muscle, especially for women. We need to work hard that type of physique. And, yes, that means lifting heavy (for you) weights. Remember: If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. ⁠
To summarize…

  • Lifting heavy (for you) weights will not make you bulky.⁠⠀⁠⠀
  • You will not turn into a man.⁠⠀⁠⠀
  • You need adequate calories to build muscle. ⁠⠀
  • The better quality food you eat, the better results you will see. ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀

All good things! Get the body you want without turning into a man!⁠ 😉
