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:⁠

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

2. IF YOU'RE HUNGRY, E.A.T!!⁠
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.⁠

3. YOU DESERVE TO EAT WHAT YOU ENJOY.⁠
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 WAYS TO CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS

3 Ways to Crush Your Cravings

You said buh-bye to sugar. You gave chips the heave-ho and you’ve been working out like Jane Fonda with a new pair of leg warmers. So why, oh why do you still get junk food cravings?

You know those days when you refuse the glazed donuts at work, politely decline the deep fried chicken wings at lunch and spend the rest of the afternoon polishing your dietary halo, until…  you walk in the house at the end of the day and suddenly dry cereal with peanut butter and raw cookie dough sounds like the most appealing meal you’ve ever eaten? Yup. THAT right there… that was my every day life.

Sometimes  cravings are mental. Other times (err, MANY times) they are emotional. But SOMETIMES they are actually nutritional. You mean food is about more than just filling a space in the emotional cavity of your heart? Yes. Yes it is.

So, next time the munchies strike, try my 3 ways to crush your cravings and help you satisfy even the strongest booty call from the pantry so you can stop sabotaging your weight loss and get to the (apple) core of the problem.

 

1. Craving the Sweet Stuff?

One of my faaaavourite snacks is frozen berries. I keep a stash of them in the freezer all year round because firstly, they are delicious and secondly, frozen berries are a saucy little minx that is happy to date a wide variety of other foods such as smoothies and even detox water (and just on the down low, sometimes I add a splash of coconut cream, some banana and nut butter to make a heavenly, creamy dessert. The berries and banana will satisfy your sweet tooth, coconut cream adds some creaminess and nut butter adds essential fats and protein. Throw some cacao nibs for an extra magnesium hit and you’ll be loaded with so much antioxidant goodness, you won’t even miss the fake sugar high!)

2. Craving the Salty Stuff?

We all have a go-to response for salty cravings and mine, was a packet of cheap-ass potato chips, swimming in heart-clogging oil and sprinkled with enough salt to raise the blood pressure of a sloth. Thankfully, these days I have a new weapon. Still chips? Heck yeah!I was not about to let those little babies go in a hurry. But this time, they’re green like the Incredible Hulk and sooo much better for your heart, your blood pressure, AND your sexy booty. Kale chips are the new potato chip and they’re so easy to make (and eat) that you’ll wonder how you ever crushed a craving without them. These little greens slices of heaven soak your cells with the manganese you may be lacking (hence the crazy cravings) and they taste like unicorns dancing on your tongue! How can you get said unicorns to dance on your tongue? Easy! Simply rinse and pat dry fresh kale leaves, brush them with a good quality olive oil and top with shredded parmesan cheese, sea salt or whatever spices float your culinary boat. Spread evenly on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes at 180 degrees (160 degrees fan forced) Devour immediately.

3. Craving the Carby Stuff?

As perculiar as this sounds, if you have an uncontrollable hankering for some bread, you may actually be needing protein. Whaa? Yup. True story. Adding some healthy protein to your dinner plate such as mercury free fish (trust me, your brain cells will thank you), organic eggs or organic chicken can cut those cravings off at the pass. You can even snack on a small plate of beans or nuts to help you curb those cravings on the spot!

Finally, when the that chocolate cake in the refrigerator sends you a booty call at 1am, hang up the phone . Getting to know what your cravings really mean is the first step to cracking the emotional eating code and creating a happier, healthier and slimmer you!

Sending you crazy amounts of luuurve,
