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.

empowering habits

The time has come.

You’re done with raiding the fridge at 1am.




You’re through with giving in to every cherry glazed donut that crosses your path.

You’re tired.

You’re worn out.

And you’re looking for a better way.


Because there has to be one, right?


I mean, this whole “I lost a kilo! love myself” or “Uggh! I gained a kilo. I hate myself” thing is getting a little tired, don’t you think?


You were born for more than this. And you CAN create a life free of diet drama, IF you get savvy and create some new empowering habits.


Are you ready to bust through that self doubt and create a life where you really CAN sit next to chocolate cake without wishing you could roll around in it naked?


Let’s go!


Know your why

If you don’t know why you really want to heal your relationship with food, you will never pull this off. Sure, you want to drop a few kilos, but how important will that seem when you’re faced with a bucket of Dunkin Donuts? It’s time to get jiggy with it and get down to specifics. How will this really affect you? How will it impact your family, your job, the world? If you want to walk away from the next office party without stuffing yourself silly with creamy cakes, you’ve got to know WHY it even matters to you.


One small step for you, one giant leap for your future

Sure, we’d all like to wake up tomorrow magically thin and freakishly beautiful but the truth, unless you’re living in a Shrek movie, it’s probably not going to happen. This is real life and real results have to happen in REAL TIME. That means that every tiny step you take will add up. Don’t give up and don’t binge if you think you “messed it up”. Small steps build on each other so keep going. You’ll be wearing your Princess Fiona tiara before you know it.


Tomorrow never comes (or does it?)

Next time you’re tempted to binge, ask yourself “how will I feel about this tomorrow?” Because as much fun as living in the moment may be, binging on ice cream and choc chunk cookies WILL come back to bite you in the proverbial butt so next time you feel the temptation to escape your feelings with a delivery of cheesy crust pizza, take a pause and ask yourself, “how good will you feel about this tomorrow?”


Remember, new habits take time to form but with a little TLC, it can absolutely be done!

Got a groovy empowering habit or super snazzy way to beat the binge? Post below and share the love, baby!
