Rumbling in My Stomach

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

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.


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.

The rumbling in my stomach started early today. By 10:30, I was already thinking about lunch. I dug into my apple and chugged some water, which sort of did the trick– well, at least for a little while.

I waited until noon to dive into my lunch. My stomach was relentless this morning! My appetite has been so weird lately! I guess, I’m just going with it! 😉

I started with an arugula salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, carrots, mushrooms, chickpeas, and BBQ Honey KooLoos for some added crunch.


Lunch also included a container of pineapple Chobani mixed with Uncle Sam cereal and chopped walnuts, which was an awesome flavor and texture combination. So good! 😀


Today’s lunch ended up being very filling. Yay! 😀


Grocery Shopping Questions

I’m going to keep Ask Me Anything open until the end of the week, so be sure to ask your questions sooner than later. If you want to see all of my responses so far, they are categorized here. My FAQs also provide a lot of answers to your questions.

I’ve received a ton of questions about grocery shopping, saving money, etc., so here are some helpful links:

Mal and I are going to a wine tasting tonight with some friends. I’m really looking forward to it! :mrgreen:



  1. It’s weird. The day after I do strength training my appetite is on FIRE! I wonder if that has anything to do with how hungry you feel today? I can definitely feel the spark in my metabolism with regular strength training so I imagine you are experiencing just that. 😉

  2. I”m going to try and think of questions… but really, I feel like you put so much of yoruself out there for us already, it feels almost rude to ask for more information! You’re so generous with your thoughts already!

  3. This is why blogs like this are so important! So many women are afraid to eat more, even when their bodies and appetites are telling them to! It’s great to see such a balanced approach to healthy eating – when your body wants more food, you shouldn’t deny it!

  4. I need to get some more salad ingredients next time I hit the store. I just generally don’t have much taste for salads in the winter and everything goes bad.

  5. Just a suggestion…if you find yourself getting hungry a lot before lunch, what does the trick for me is switching up my breakfast. Try something new for a while or do a variety throughout the week! (You can still incorporate oatmeal in them!)

  6. I think it’s really good you’re listening to your body and it needs, so important! And see: after a nice lunch your body is happy too (and quiet;) )

    Have fun at the wine tasting! Do you always sip and spit it out or drink all the wine? Strange question, I know, but I’m curious!
