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 Create New Habits That Stick


You’ve been there a thousand times….

  1. Stuff yourself stupid with forbidden food at night
  2. Promise you’ll get back on track tomorrow
  3. Rinse and repeat

If what they say is true, that you are what you eat, then I guess it makes sense that my butt kinda resembles a Betty Crocker pancake. Lord knows, I’ve eaten enough of them in my life to have earned it.

But when you really want to change, and you’ve really tried to change, how do you do it and actually make it stick? 

Turns out, it’s really not that hard after all. In fact, you can jump the habit creation queue using the simple steps below!


1. Give Up What Isn’t Working



Make new diet plan






Ensure new diet plan is endorsed by Instagram celebrity





Throw junk food in trash night before said diet





Retrieve junk food from trash following day and eat it





Promise yourself tomorrow will be different





Rinse and repeat




2. Check Yo’Self 

There are 3 key questions you need to ask yourself if you ever want to see long term change.  We all love to do a clean sweep of our kitchen and promise the Green Smoothie Gods that we’ll live on wheat grass shots for evermore, but before you attempt any kind of change to your eating habits, look at what you already have going on and assess:

  1. What do you need to START doing?
  2. What do you need to STOP doing?
  3. What do you need to KEEP doing?

Be honest. Be real. And if things aren’t working for you, check out why? Have you over committed yourself? Tried to change too much, too fast? It’s important to go at your own pace. This is not a competition. This is your life. Creating new habits is about making your life and your body and your relationship with food more comfortable, not so prickly that you want to roll around naked in Doritos.
