About the Author
Like most brides-to-be, Tina Haupert wanted to look her best on her wedding day. After using an online calorie and exercise tracker and reading food blogs to shape up, Tina was inspired to start her own blog Carrots ‘N’ Cake. Since then, Tina’s lifestyle blog has become one of the most visited on the Internet. Now she continues to be super passionate about keeping a balance—having fun, staying fit, and watching her weight—all without stressing over it. While Tina tries to pack the most nutrients possible into each meal, she has a number of favorites that are not necessarily healthy, but she indulges in anyway. If eaten in moderation, Tina believes that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced healthy diet. Tina is a weekly contributor to Health.com as well as an ambassador for various brands including The Laughing Cow, Silk, and Reebok. She is also the author of Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time. In her book, Tina shows readers how they can drop the pounds—and keep them off—by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all, livable. Tina's work has been published and quoted in numerous publications including: The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Health, Woman’s Day, Shape, Fitness, Glamour, People, and InStyle. Tina lives in Weymouth, Massachusetts with her husband, Mal, and adorable pug, Murphy. When she is not spending time with her family and friends (or blogging), you can find her at CrossFit or running. Tina also enjoys baking, dining out, and traveling.
