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.

A DAY IN MY LIFE AS A BINGE EATER PLUS 3 STEPS TO STOP BINGEING FOR GOOD

A Day In My Life As a Binge Eater

Plus 3 Steps To Stop Bingeing For Good

____________________

You PROMISED yourself you wouldn’t binge today and yet here you are… dazed and confused as you stare with disappointed eyes at the empty food wrappers scattered on the floor. An ugly reminder of  just how pathetic you really are.

 

It’s happened again… the dreaded binge.

You stare at your reflection in the mirror and assess the damage… yup, you definitely look heavier already. Maybe you can work out extra hard tomorrow and undo the damage of the last hour. Or maybe, you should just keep eating. After all, you’ve REALLY messed it up. Might as well go for it. You can always start afresh tomorrow.

That right there, was pretty much a daily occurrence for me until I learned how to Ditch the Diet and quit the obsessive thoughts about food.

How many calories are in that chocolate bar? Cake? Bite of cake? Can I wrangle my macros to include an extra burrito? Because I really want to. And if I do, what will I have for dinner? After all, there’s no point in eating the salad I had prepared in the fridge if I’m eating burrito’s for lunch?

And that, right there… that’s the PRECISE moment when you switch from being in total control of your eating to stepping into Wolverine territory. That. Precise. Second.

 

The MINUTE you second guess. The MOMENT you start to bargain with yourself. That is the second you throw your soul to the self-hate wolves. They constantly stalk you, their fangs salivating, as they patiently wait for your moment of weakness when they will strike prey.

And you? Well, you are standing on the precipice between finally breaking through the nightmare and spending another night hating yourself for breaking your own promises.

 

No matter what stage you’re at in your journey with food, I want you to be hugely, wildly and outrageously happy with yourself. I want you to NEVER AGAIN feel the fear that just the smallest slice of cheese cake can instil when you’re trying so hard to ‘be good’ with your diet.

The truth? You CAN reach any level of success in life that you set your mind to. But you need to start somewhere, and these 3 Steps are as good a place as any…

 

1. Get Specific

If you do nothing else, you must do this ONE THING. Being all airy fairy with your goals will get you one steaming hot bowl of airy fairy results. Is that what you want? No. I didn’t think so. Drill down and get specific. Exactly WHAT do you want to achieve here? Stop the late night binges? Lose those 20 kilos? Create a body that is so kick ass hot that you’ll have Victoria’s Secret begging you to shake your booty on the runway? What, what, what is your ULTIMATE goal? And WHY does it matter to you? And how will you FEEL when you reach it? All of these questions are valid and all of them make a King Size KitKat of difference to you ever achieving your dreams or not.

 

2. Get Your Vibrator 

Now we get to the really good part. And no, I’m not talking about vibrators but I AM talking about vibration. If you’re waiting for the Magical Motivation Fairy to swing by your house and whack you over the head with her sparkly Enthusiasm Stick, then you’re not going to like what’s coming next (warning: if you still believe in Santa Clause, you may want to turn away now..) SHE’S NOT REAL!! You gotta do tha werk.

As per point number 1; drill down and ask yourself WHY you even give a rats booty about this? Does it REALLY matter to you whether you eat the pizza or not? Because in order to see a change in your behaviour, you will actually have to (wait for it) change your behaviour! Get in the vibe of the person you want to be. How will you feel when you’re 20 kg lighter? How will you walk? Talk? Eat? ALL this matters.

Why?

Because it’s the first step to believing you can actually BE that woman. BELIEVE in your ability and skills to achieve your dream. And if you really can’t, if your confidence is just too shaken right now to trust that this is really possible for you, then hook up with someone who can help you get there.

 

3. Get %#*@!!

And now for my favourite part… tell any thoughts that are not in alignment with the outcome you desire to GET %#*@!!  Thoughts that try to take up residency in your mind that don’t make you feel good are like that rain sodden junk mail that keeps getting crammed in your letter box. It may have been useful once, but now? Not so much.

It’s time to show up in your own life. Yes there will be days where you swear that chocolate ice cream is calling your name from the freezer but this is YOUR life and food is NOT the boss of you. Sure, you can eat it if you want to, but do you REALLY want to? Or are you craving it simply because it’s there?

 

Even if you just implement ONE of the 3 steps above, you’ll be miles ahead of everyone who is still trying to beat the binge with diet pills, shakes and meal replacement bars that taste like a pubescent boys football socks.

 

Now, I’d loooove to hear from you! What does a typical day look like for you? Are you in struggle town with your eating? Join the conversation below and remember, people come here for inspiration and direction, so let’s support each other!

 

Oodles of chocolate coated love!
