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 to guarantee you never lose weight


You’ve been dieting as long as you can remember…




Or at least it feels like it, and you’re STILL not happy with your body.

You’ve been weighing, measuring, dissecting into portions and categorizing your food.

Good food and bad food.

You’re on a diet, you’re on a binge.

Last week you were vegan, now you’re doing paleo.

When will it end? When will you decide enough is (dare I say it) ENOUGH?

THIS is what the diet industry has done to us. We no longer feel that we are acceptable in our own skin.

Our edges are too round.


We need the Michelle Bridges stamp of approval… or at the very least, we just want to be less, errr…jiggly.


But you don’t get it.

Despite your years of constant dieting, you look the way you do for a REASON.


Because you’re body knows that there are no quick fixes and it’s trying to get a message to you.

You say you want to lose weight, but do you REALLY want to do what it takes? Because what it takes is NOT ANOTHER DIET…

What if, just for today, you DECIDED that you’re okay?

What if, just for today, you DECIDED that you like what you see in the mirror, rather than tear it to shreds?

What if, just for today, you DECIDED that you DON’T need another diet to lose weight, that you are actually SMART enough to know EXACTLY what you need to eat AND that you’re STRONG enough to do it!


The diet industry won’t like this message. Too freaking bad.


It’s time to stand up to the “men in suits” who have made it their life’s mission to keep you feeling small and stupid so that you will continue to shovel your hard earned dollars into their retirement fund.

And you do.

Like a well-trained monkey, you come running every time they dangle the latest bright and shiny weight loss promise under your nose.

It’s time to stop.

And breathe.

And think.

Are you really as powerless as they think you are?

Or, is it possible, that you are GREATER than they, and quite possibly even you, ever imagined?

What if it’s your POWER that it scares them? What if THAT’S the reason they tell us we’re powerless without them?


Weight loss isn’t hard. It’s NOT a technical minefield and you DON’T need a nutritional degree to master it.


Allow me to break it down for you…

Eat when you’re hungry.

Eat what will make your body feel good.

And stop eating when you’re full.



So let me ask you… How much longer are you going to suffer?


How much longer are you going to torture yourself with iceberg lettuce and meal replacement shakes that taste like, well, do they even have a taste?

If you want to guarantee you NEVER lose weight, go on another diet.


If you’re done with the struggle, then come on over to Ditch the Diet Online Bootcamp.
