Hi, I'm Tina!

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.
When it comes to adjusting your macros, protein is considered a BUILDING BLOCK while carbs and fat are FUEL SOURCES.🔥
Depending on how you’re feeling on a daily basis, and the results you’re seeing in your body composition and on the scale, you may need to raise or lower your carbs or your fats.⁠⁠
Good news is, it’s not too hard to determine which needle, fat or carbs, you need to move. Just listen to your body!⁠⁠
Add carbs if…⁠⁠
▪️You feel like junk during your workouts⁠⁠
▪️You have frequent gas, bloating, and constipation⁠⁠
▪️You’re moody and cranky fasting⁠⁠
Add fat if…⁠⁠
▪️You’re never satisfied after a meal/always want a snack⁠⁠
▪️You have dry skin, hair, and eyes⁠⁠
▪️You have hormonal problems, including loss of menstrual cycle⁠⁠
▪️You have blood sugar issues⁠⁠
Of course, these are general recommendations and you should always pay attention to individual biofeedback when it comes to making adjustments to your macros. ⁠⁠
Adjusting carbs and fat is a personal decision based how your goals, needs, and preferences. Adding or decreasing carbs or fats in your daily macro count can make a significant difference in how you feel, how you look, and how you perform throughout the day.⁠⁠
