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.

Ditch the Diet Workshop LIVE!




Round 1. of the Ditch the Diet Workshop is over and what a time it was!


Two cities, ten beautiful ladies all taking time out of their busy schedules to go after their dreams, reach for what they KNOW is possible and then MAKE IT HAPPEN!


So, what’s all the fuss about?

Ditching the Diet is all about setting yourself free.

Free from the drama of diets.

Free from the bondage of self loathing.

Free from the struggle of trying to reach an unattainable image of perfection.

We are women. We are strong, brave and courageous. And THAT’S what makes us beautiful!



Remember,  is a choice. It's not something you have to try and "get", it's WHO YOU ARE.

What did we do?

We started the day with a Centering Meditation.

This is such a great practice to help you distance yourself from the business of your life and bring you back into the present moment.

We worked our way through the 5 steps of my Ditch the Diet Eating Code. The WHAAAT??!! The Eating Code, baby! It’s the answer to your weight loss prayers!

The Eating Code is the answer to every emotional eaters dream. I like to think of it as my 5 Steps to Freedom! It’s a simple set of guidelines to help you overcome emotional eating and set yourself free to  actually start enjoying your life and your relationship with food!


What did we eat?

The Adelaide Workshop was held at Paleo Cafe, in Hyde Park, and can I just say… WOW! The food was absolutely delicious, super healthy and fresh, fresh, fresh! Big love goes to Bec and Michael, the owners of Paleo Cafe, for putting on such an amazing spread! It was just the perfect opportunity to practice “conscious eating”.




Conscious eating is all about, eating with awareness, enjoyment and attention, rather than running our own personal contest to see how quickly we can shove food into our mouths! Sure we’re all busy, but don’t you deserve a small chunk of your day to really pay attention to what you’re eating? To extract every last morsel of pleasure from your food? Especially when it’s this good!


What did we learn?

Really, the question should be… what DIDN’T we learn!

We learnt WHY another diet or meal plan is NOT the solution to ending the struggle with our weight and how to eliminate self-sabotaging food clutter from our lives. The Eating Code was absolutely ADORED by the participants and everybody left with an array of my very fave whole food recipes (OMG… definitely drool worthy!)

Many of the participants said they felt as though a weight has been lifted and they FINALLY felt as though they have a clear direction and enthusiasm that they hadn’t felt in a long time!

Another beautiful lady said she plans to write out copies of the Eating Code and stick them all over her house so the next time she is tempted to eat when she’s not hungry, she can simply refer to the Eating Code and know EXACTLY which steps to take to send those kilos dancing back to Boogie Wonderland!




 The day was full of love, laughter and even a few tears, but THIS is what true breakthrough is all about.


I absolutely loved working with each and every one of the gorgeous ladies who attended, and if you’d love to be a part of the next one (and seriously, why wouldn’t you!), just be sure to sign up below and I’ll make sure I keep you in the loop! (plus you’ll get a copy of my brand, spanking new Ditch the Diet Recipe Guide… YEAH BABY!)


Here’s to Ditching the Diet!
