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.

Macros are a useful tool unless you abuse the hell out of them.

I literally can’t stress this enough. In a world that stresses inflexibility and set meal plans, macros are designed for long-term, lifestyle flexibility.⁠

The whole point of using macros AS A TOOL for weight loss, maintenance, and #gains is to give you more food options, increased flexibility, and provide data about what you are eating and how it can help you get to your body composition goals.⁠

You should be able to eat egg whites and donuts, grilled chicken and milkshakes, carrots and cake! <— see what I did there? Haha!⁠

Macros are supposed to fit into your lifestyle, not the other way around. Your lifestyle should not be controlled by them. (If you feel this way, macros might not be for you and that’s TOTALLY okay!)⁠⁠

If you want to go to that wedding and enjoy a full-sized piece of cake, simply move your macros around that day to accommodate for it. Even if you can’t get a precise protein, fat, or carb count for it, macros should ideally allow you to enjoy that cake guilt-free.⁠

Don’t become a macro robot. YOU control your macros, not the other way around. And it’s up to you to incorporate the foods you love.⁠
