"CAKE has changed my relationship with food.
I’ve been stuck in yo-yo diet cycle and knew I had to develop healthy relationship with food and sustainable habits, but no matter how hard I tried I kept failing.
CAKE allowed me to discover more about what was keeping me stuck and gave me tools to change my habits.
The best part is it does not feel restrictive, shame-y or toxic. Instead it’s empowering, freeing and sustainable" - A.
WHEN IT COMES
YOU'VE TRIED IT ALL.
IT'S LEFT YOU FEELING CONFUSED
AND SO. FRUSTRATED.
It seems so easy for everyone else. They just eat the things, follow the plan, and don't seem to think too much about it.
That is definitely...not how it goes for you.
You're thinking about food, well, alot.
It always starts with you reallyyy wanting to start over,
to make the choices you're "supposed to"
but sometimes you forget to eat at all
or you scarf handfuls of cookies for lunch
order all the things in the drive-thru
and wonder that sprig of parsley counts towards your vegetable intake
and then you are full...of regrets.
You spend annoying amounts of time
quietly worrying about it
and Googling down rabbit holes,
looking for new methods
to Get This Under Control.
You are done with restricting but sometimes you think maybeee that one's not a diet,
because it sounds hEaLtHy!
You tell yourself to just need to try...harder.
*rinse and repeat *
It all feels like a hopeless cycle,
with sides of increasing underlying shame-y feelings and slow-burning desperation.
This constant drama with food is stressful
and feels physically and emotionally awful.
"I'm a strong, independant, woman!" you think.
"I know better than this!"
But what's a woman to do when
the tools you have been using
(restricting, going bananas, or anything in between)
for body positivity posts
isn't helping you to stop feeling some type of way about your body,
and you're starting to feel like you may never get a handle on this food thing.
YOU ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.
IT'S THE METHOD.
It's time to opt out of the cycle
of cookie cutter solutions
and get personalized,
evidenced-based strategies that work.
FOR REAL THIS TIME.)
a plan that doesn't feel like work - it just happens because it's designed for your real life.
to radically shift your mindset
and approach to food
to let go of perfect
(so you can find consistent)
to learn how to calm down about food
while still feeling in control and finding moderation
so that you can
enjoy all the foods you love
and feel good in your body.

Nutrition is a topic that has been frequently brought up to me by the clients I work with. There is so much overwhelm and anxiety surrounding food and it effects so many factors in my clients lives: their mood, training, lives at home, relationship and comfort with their bodies, energy levels...I could go on.
Folks want to feel better in their lives and bodies and they know this is impacted by their food choices and routines. What they aren't sure about is where they should start, which changes are worthwhile, or how to ensure changes stick around.
I knew that we needed to create a program that reflected Bolte Fitness values. Our nutrition offering had to be inclusive, empathetic, sustainable, and a continuation of whole-person coaching.
This is that program.
I am confident that CAKE will give you the tools and mindset shifts you need to approach food differently, in a way that respects you as an individual.
ISSA CERTIFIED NUTRITION COACH
PRE/POSTNATAL FITNESS SPECIALIST
PREGNANCY AND POSTPARTUM ATHLETICISM COACH
I get a liiiiitle passionate / involved with the things I care about and I have 4 kids, so I tend to have a lot on the go! This why I thrive on systems, shortcuts, and finding creative ways to reach goals. If something isn’t working, I want to find a better way. This is what led me to start coaching in a way that’s a little outside of the norm.
So many folks are overwhelmed when it comes to nutrition and are focused on all the wrong details and ways of thinking. They are making their lives way harder than they have to be. It is also deeply frustrating to see the harmful ways that typical nutrition programs upheld oppressive values. I knew we could create something inclusive and better.
My favourite thing is to take what feels like an overwhelming challenge for someone and help them find a solution. I love showing the folks I work with that they can make small, manageable changes that will add up to make a massive difference in their lives.
And P.S. I actually do bake cakes (I've even made a few wedding cakes) and there is no universe in which I will accept that canceling any type of food is a solution. Your sweet tooth is safe with me!
ON THE MENU
- Guidance on how to build a balanced plate (including individual focus on nutrients such as protein, veggies, and fibre)
- Learn how to monitor and increase your fibre and water intake (and why this is so important for your pelvic floor and any symptoms you may be having)
- Advice on how to create a supportive environment at home using tools such as meal-planning and prep (simplified and individualized so that they don’t add to your stress), which are absolutely key to your success
- Learn how to choose dense and filling meals
- Discover how to “listen to your body” and tune into your body’s built-in hunger and fullness signals
- Leave behind yo-yo, fad, and crash diets, shame, and being all-or-nothing with food with important mindset changes
- Learn how outside factors, such as sleep and stress, impact your nutrition and how to make changes that will work with you rather than against you
- Put a stop to anxiety, guilt, and angst around food and learn how to put all foods back on the table (literally)
And accountability and personalized support
every. step. of. the. way.
from your coach.
"It can feel scary to try something different - I was worrying I would fail again. I was worrying that letting go of restrictions and diets would make me lose control of my weight and body.
Instead, I found a new sense of appreciation and love for my body and sense of confidence in how to nourish my body in a healthy way that is sustainable and not restrictive and allows me to reach my long term goals." - CAKE nutrition client
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT (AND OTHER FAQS)
Upon purchasing, you will receive a Welcome Email that will walk you through getting set up on the Bolte Fitness app so you can start filling out your intake forms.
Inside the email, we've also included the Educational Group Call schedule, instructions on how to book your 1:1 coaching calls, and an overview on the flow of the program.
How does it work?
Every monthly group Zoom call will give you education on a different nutrition foundation. We'll walk you through how to make the monthly focus - or any habit for that matter - fit more easily into your life. You'll book your monthly 1:1 call at a time that works best for you. During that call, you'll chat with your coach about where you're at and how to keep making progress. You'll be able to send your coach a text or voice message through the app any time you have a question or need support. Your coach will keep you making progress with tools such as habit tracking, self-evaluations, and the occasional worksheet, all of which will be customized to your unique needs and life.
What do I need to be successful in the program?
Access to the Bolte Fitness app, via your phone.
Access to Zoom and the internet.
~3 hrs in the first month, as we get things going.
~2 hrs for every subsequent month.
A desire to make changes, a willingness to try new things, and openness to changing your mindset.
How long are the calls?
Who will be coaching me?
I'm brand new to nutrition, is this meant for me?
I have specific health concerns. I would like to adjust my nutrition to try to address them.
I am struggling with an eating disorder. Can this program help me?
Will this program help me lose weight?
The educational call will be 60 minutes long and the 1:1 coaching calls will be 30 minutes long.
Both Anna and Tara are coaching during the Educational Group Calls, with the session being led by Tara. Each member of the Cake crew is assigned their personal coach based off of each member's history, goals, and needs. Great consideration is given as to which coach will be the best fit for each member and this is decided by the coaching team.
Absolutely, you do not need any previous nutrition knowledge to partcipate.
This program is not meant to diagnose or treat any specific health or medical concern. Please speak with your doctor.
While many folks in the program have struggled with some sort of disordered eating in the past or would like to improve their relationship with food, this program is not designed to help folks overcome or manage an untreated or unmanaged eating disorder. Please speak with your doctor or visit this website.
This goal and intentions behind this program are not weight-loss or any form of dieting to change the appearance of your body. While we respect individual goals and choices, to help keep this program as safe as possible for folks with varying history with food, body image, or eating disorders, talking about food or weight in terms of numbers, sizes, restriction, and etc will not be allowed.
We do aim to support you in separating nutrition and body image and to provide a supportive space to explore this often difficult topic.
Will you teach me how to count macros / calories or how to stick to a diet?
Nope. This is not what CAKE is about and will not be the right fit for you.
