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.

EASTER SURVIVAL TIPS YOUR WAISTLINE WILL THANK YOU FOR

Easter Survival Tips Your Waistline Will Thank You For

 

 

You know it’s Easter when you can’t go to the shops for a loaf of bread without being confronted with wall after wall of shiny, chocolate bunnies.

They stare at you… beckoning. How can you leave their cute little faces in the store? OF COURSE you must bring them home with you! It’s the humane thing to do, isn’t it?

Yes, it’s Easter time and try as you might, the smell of Hot Cross Buns have already started calling your name. But never fear! I have the quintessential Party Survival Guide already prepared for you AND NOW…   your must have 3 Essential Easter Survival Tips!

 

1. You don’t have to binge just because it’s Easter

Yes, yes, I know it looks like Easter is your “access all areas” ticket to chocolate heaven, but remember… when the choc-fest is over and all you’re left with is a kitchen full of empty foil wrappers and a belly the size of a sumo wrestler, you WILL regret the choices you made over the weekend.

Take it slow. Reassure yourself that you have not ruined your eating plan just because you’re enjoying a dozen Easter buns. That is not a thing. If you want to eat them, eat them. If you don’t, don’t. The pressure of perfectionism will drive you nuts so just trust your body to tell you when it’s had enough to eat. Put some chocolate eggs aside for later, give them away or donate them to the less fortunate. Just DON’T think you need to eat the world’s supply of chocolate so you can make a “fresh start” on Tuesday.

 

2. Don’t buy more than you need

Easter eggs and hot cross buns will get discounted a day or so before the big event. DON’T GET SUCKED IN! If you don’t need them, it’s not a bargain and you’re not saving money.

Walk on by, baby. Leave them on the shelf.  Let some other sucker fall victim to the marketing ploy. Buying more chocolate “for later” will not help your emotional eating situation one bit. What it will do is set you up for binge scenario (A) you + the TV on Easter Monday night = total choc-fest and belly ache

 

3. Move on

Alright, so you at a liiiiitle too much. The buns were just too delicious and the Easter Bunny dumped his entire delivery of eggs at your place. I get it. I’ve been there more times than I care to remember. So now what? Give yourself permission to move on. It’s over. It’s done. No point crying over melted chocolate. The thing to do now is to question why you felt the need to eat the world’s supply of chocolate to start with? Did you feel lit was a threat to your progress? That it would jump in your mouth in the middle of the night if you didn’t eat it first? What was really going on in your thoughts?

Whatever it may be, write.it.down and continue to question if your fears (because it will be a fear that drove you to binge) is real or just a made up thing in your head.

 

I know, as a HUUUGE emotional eater myself,  Easter can be a bitter and (oh, so) sweet time of year. But if you use the FREE Party Survival Guide below, along with these three tips, you’re sure to glide through the Easter holiday on a cloud of calm control, rather than chomp your way through enough chocolate bunnies to put a small chocolate factory out of business!
