Why You Keep Overeating At Night

This week we're talking about the sneaky little lies that are keeping you overweight and how you can recognise and reverse them

Let's talk about reason #103 why you keep overeating at night... "banking calories".

"I haven't eaten all day so I DESERVE this"⁠
"I haven't eaten all day so I can AFFORD to eat this"⁠
"I haven't eaten all day so I can SPLURGE now"⁠

*insert whiney voice here*

Straight up, banking calories is not a thing. You can't "save now, spend later" when it comes to calories and what you eat. Your body needs sufficient calories all throughout the day so it can function efficiently. And if you don't give it those calories when it needs them, it will force you to eat tsunami-sized portions of food to compensate.

Straight up, banking calories is not a thing. You can't "save now, spend later" when it comes to calories and what you eat.

Here's what you should do instead:⁠

You might be busy with kids, meetings etc, but it only takes a moment to check-in and see how you're feeling.⁠

This is not rocket science. What do you feel like eating at that moment? Honour your body's needs. It's here to support you for the long haul. Respect that.⁠

You don't have to bank calories or wait for a special occasion to eat the doughnut. If you want it, eat it and enjoy it. The doughnut does not mean you have "ruined" your eating or "failed". It's just a doughnut. Enjoy it for what it is and move the fu*k on.⁠

There is never going to be a "right time" to deal with your emotional eating. There is just time and you choose what to do with it.⁠⁠
It won't be easier tomorrow.⁠⁠
It won't be easier next week.⁠⁠
And it definitely won't be easier next month.⁠⁠
I want to be clear, you can't (and won't) do it before you're ready. That's okay, too. But you will need to push yourself *a little*.
Want a life and body that feels easy and not stressy?⁠ You gotta step up, girl.

It's not going to feel good, but that's what growing and becoming an even more amazing wife/mother/partner/woman looks like!
STEP 1 - What are you willing to DO to make your relationship with food (or anything) the way you want it?⁠⁠
STEP 2 - What are you willing to STOP doing to have things the way you want it?⁠⁠
STEP 3 - How can you do what's necessary to get the job done AND enjoy the process? (and p.s. there are a million options here)⁠⁠
Remember, the feelings you get from eating when you're not hungry are only a temporary escape. Changing your relationship with yourself lasts a lifetime.

3 Tips to Stop Stress Eating

In a (non-chocolate-coated) nutshell

You Hold All The Power

The only person who decides what something means is YOU. Why is this important? Because stress is an intangible,  which means although stress may have an instant physiological response,  you create the rest of the drama in your head. And if you can create it then you can break up with it. Bust out some meditation, deep breathing or take a two minute time out. Do SOMETHING to put some distance between the stress and you besides a coconut flavoured cronut. Remember, you hold all the power(subject to point 2. below)…

Except When You Don’t

You can’t control your circumstances but you CAN control how you respond. When you feel like the giant octopus arms of life are slinging mud your way, you only need to ask yourself… “what’s my NEXT RIGHT MOVE”. You don’t have to have it all sorted to make progress. You only need to focus on who you want to be rather than who you fear you have already become.

Take Control Early, y’all!

The DECISIONS of your life are more important than the CONDITIONS of your life. Don’t allow your mind to wander off into the Boogie Wonderland of drama in your mind but instead, harness it in early in the morning! Make lists of the tasks to be conquered that day. Schedule reminders in your phone. And then, let it go…
