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.

Emotional Eating – How To Accept Yourself:

I had a man tell me recently that girls who use filters on their post must be UGLY in real life?!!⁠

Yup. You heard correctly.⁠

U.G.L.Y.⁠

Straight up, I was confronted post because I, for one, luuurve me a good filter.⁠

And here’s why…⁠

All our lives women have been told:⁠
You mustn’t⁠
You shouldn’t⁠
You better not.⁠
Good girls don’t do/say/act like that.⁠
No man will want you if you (add your own draconian verb here)⁠

Which would be fine except…⁠

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO/WEAR/SAY AND USE WHATEVER FILTERS YOU LIKE AND NONE OF IT IS DEPENDENT ON HOW YOU LOOK IN “REAL LIFE”.⁠

Side Note On How To Accept Yourself:

I suffered depression most of my life because of the way I look. There was a time when I wanted to die because I believed I was an UGLY ANIMAL who didn’t deserve to live. ⁠

Flippant comments like this can be devastating to someone who already is in a fragile emotional state.

So to anyone, male or female, who thinks that any woman is “ugly”, take a look in the mirror.⁠

I think you will find that the real problem has been staring you the whole time.⁠

So, next time you wonder how to accept yourself and your body remember… the only opinion that matters is yours. And it safe for you to be beautifully successful in all that you do.

P.S. remember to Like and Share with a sister who needs this. If you need a little extra nudge, check out my resources page here. You got this, girl.

Because if there’s one thing I want you to know, it’s that we create the life we believe we’re worthy of living.

Much love!
