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.

How I create my dream life


How I create my dream life….

You wonder, don’t you, how I seem to have it all?

How I make it look so easy.

The energy.

The body.

The vitality.

It’s alright. I get that question all the time.


What is my formula?

What is my routine?

What vitamins do I take?

How much chocolate do I eat? (Yup, true story. And just FYI, the answer is LOTS)


But the truth is, it’s not so much a FORMULA as much as it is a COMMITMENT.


You see, I’m COMMITTED to my success.

I’m COMMITTED to achieving the outcome I want.

And not just because it would be kinda cool (because kinda cool goals mean squat when your “goal” is to lose 25 kilos but there is chocolate cake on offer)


I’m talking more like, I just KNOW this is how it HAS to be.

What do I mean?

Well, what is the alternative?


Stay unhappy and miserable for the rest of my life?

Watch my dreams float by me and land in the lap of someone who WILL take action on them?

Uh, no thanks! You can keep that!

I want the life that I want AND I want it bad enough that I will do what it takes to get it.

Whether than means late nights, working weekends, missing dinner parties, family functions, TV (ok, the occasional Kardashian episode makes a guest appearance from time to time, but as for general daily TV watching… nope)

And the mother of them all…

INTENTIONALLY CHOOSING my behaviour when it comes to food and working out.


Do you actually think I’m one of those people who looooves to workout?

Uh, think again.

I would HAPPILY exchange my Louis Vuitton handbag for a body that stayed naturally slim and never have to workout again.


Same thing with the food.

I love chocolate. As in, SERIOUSLY love it. In fact, if chocolate could take out a restraining order against me, I’m sure that it would.

And actually…

It probably should.


Because yes, I can STILL eat more than my fair share.

I can STILL make myself sick on it.

And sometimes I do.

But more often that not, I don’t.

But it wasn’t always like that.


I spent thirty years drowning in chocolate, self hate and depression.

I was CONVINCED that I had a mental disorder. I mean, how could I NOT?

CLEARLY I MUST have been insane to eat myself sick night after night when a “normal” person (whatever the heck that is) would just eat a small amount of sugary sweets, or even… GASP… none at all.


But not me.


I had to be the one to push it to the brink.

STUFF it in.



Until I didn’t anymore.

And it happened Just. Like. THAT.


I know overcoming emotional eating is a process.

But you should NOT be still stuck at the starting line ten years after the race started.


There is a way to speed it up.

To ACCELERATE it, in fact.

And THAT, my sexy one, is what I did and it’s exactly what you can do too.




DECIDE what you want.

ACT on your choice.

And then?



It always comes back to commitment.


You’ve got what it takes.
