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.

Does trying to please everybody leave you flat, exhausted & scrounging the bottom of the cookie tin each day?


Is it possible that being fake is keeping you overweight? 


So you think the fact that you ate two tubs of Cream Cheese, six brownies and a jelly donut BEFORE you ate your dinner has nothing to do with the fact that you plaster a fake smile on your face each day?

“Don’t express your feelings”, they say… “no one wants to hear your problems anyway”.

Well, maybe not, but keeping the real you locked inside a cellophane Doritos bag is not helping either.

Being scared of what people will think of you affects your eating.

Saying “yes” when you’d rather say “no” affects your eating.

And doing things you don’t want to do when you reeeeally don’t want to do them DEFINITELY affects your eating.


If you’re too scared to let your total babe-ness shine like a supernova, then check out how being fake is keeping you overweight…

The Highlights

Chill dude

If the fake-o you is constantly trying to be, do, and become someone you were never designed to be, it’s going to be a little tricky to make food choices that you feel good about because you’re so busy eating chocolate to feel good that there’s no room left for the occasional apple or carrot stick.


You deserve happiness toooooo!!

It’s safe to be you all of the time. Not just when you’re behind closed doors and you think you can relax , put on your track pants and dance, half naked, around your living room listening to Madonna. Let that little glimmer of ‘crazy’ shine all the time.

DISCLAIMER: Half naked dancing is not recommended in the following locations:

The workplace, your Grandma’s house, or any outdoor location that is not accompanied by a Mardi Gras festival.


Be yo’ self

You are unique! We are all unique and we all shine our own light and yup, you guessed it… that’s EXACTLY how it’s s’posed to be! You’re not born to be a carbon copy of somebody else. You’re not supposed to look like somebody else, be, act, or say the things that other people do. So guess what, cute head? It’s okay to be you.


Shout it out, sista!

What are the needs that you’ve been denying yourself? What are the desires that you have been denying yourself because you have not let your authentic self show?

And how can you change that this week? Comment below!


Remember, the only person who has the power to change your life is you.

You’ve got what it takes.

Big Love!
