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.

How To Stop Binge Eating

How to stop binge eating? It’s something almost every woman wants to know. But here’s the thing… binge eating is not something you need to FIX. It’s something you need to UNDERSTAND.⁠ ⁠

It doesn’t make you WEIRD. You’re not ABNORMAL. Binge eating is very, VERY common, especially amongst women.

What is Binge Eating?

 Firstly, what is binge eating?

Binge eating can mean different things to different people. For some, eating three cookies might be a binge, while for others (like myself), a binge looks more like large quantities of food usually, the unhealthy kind, eaten quickly and/or waaaay past the point of being full.⁠ ⁠

How Do You Stop Binge Eating?

How do you stop binge eating?⁠ ⁠ Binge eating isn’t something you can turn on and off. It’s your MO to stress (or perceived stress), fear, uncertainty and sometimes even joy.⁠ ⁠ And while binge eating may not be NORMAL, it is normal for YOU, so the first step is to stop judging yourself.⁠ ⁠ You’re not “bad” or “out of control”, you’re simply following the same pattern you’ve followed thousands of times before.⁠ ⁠

What To Do?

What to do?⁠ ⁠

  1. NOTICE the pattern⁠
  2. REPLACE the pattern⁠
  3. RELEASE the pattern⁠

The more aware you become, the more choices you have.

P.S. Does this sound familiar? The more we share and support each other, the more we normalise the conversation.⁠

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. 

Because if there’s one thing I want you to know, it’s that everything you are experienceing in your life right now is a response to the story you tell yourself most frequently. Change your story. Change your experience.

I believe in you.

Sending you chocolate coated love!
