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.

Morning Glow Beet Beauty Juice



Here’s a redundant question… have you ever wanted glowing skin, shiny hair, nails that can screech through a chalk board and a natural sweet non-soda hit? (uh, yeah… I’ve been shooting for this since I hit puberty!)

Well, kick up your Louis Vuitton heels because I have the magic solution!

I don’t juice as much as I used to these days., ever since I discovered the joys of Juice Plus-ing every day! But when I do, this is still one of my faves.

Now, I know what you’re thinking… juicing? But I gotta peel and chop and clean the juicer, all for a few measly drops of juice? Yes. Yes you do. It’s called adulting and if you will happily plonk your butt on the couch all night and eat cheesy chips, you can give up three minutes of your life to get more out of it, am I right?

Here’s how it rolls…


Morning Glow Beet Beauty Juice

  • 1 pear
  • 1 orange, skin and pith removed
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, peeled
  • 1 beetroot, peeled
  • 2 carrots
  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1/2 to 1 lemon, skin and pith removed

Wash and chop all ingredients before passing through juicer. Add ice cubes and drink immediately. will refrigerate for up to 6 hours (although the juice may darken as it oxidises)


Juicing is an easy way to get a fast hit of mega nutrition into your body. But on the days when I’m too busy (or lazy) or tired (or lazy), I always make sure I take my new beauty secret weapon. 

I swear, it looks like the sun is shining out of my face ever since I started using this product. But seeing as we’re friends, I’ll let you in on the secret here.


Sending you lip-smacking love!
