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.

Overeating & Bingeing Are Not The Same Thing

Hey, girl!…

Are you bingeing or just overeating? ⁠

It’s natural to eat a little extra from time to time. It’s not natural to feel a complete loss of control around food or feel unable to keep certain trigger foods in the house.⁠

It’s natural to want to taste certain foods when given the opportunity, even if you’re not physically hungry. It’s not natural to hide chocolate and treats from the kids and then eat them in secret when no one else is looking.⁠

Overeating and binge eating are not the same thing.⁠

What’s important to know is that neither one makes you a bad person.⁠

You are a strong, capable, focused woman who is turning to food for a little time out.⁠

And after the year we had in 2020 who can blame you?⁠
But…⁠

If it’s happening in secret,⁠
If it’s interfering with your lifestyle,⁠
If you are cancelling plans with friends because you are not comfortable with your body or,⁠
If you generally feel like you need to stick to your eating routine or you will lose control… ⁠

It’s probably not okay anymore.⁠

Now is the time to step up and make a commitment to yourself.⁠
No one else. Just YOU.⁠

Because the next year *will* pass. Do you really want to be having the same conversation with yourself this time next year?⁠

As a sister who has lived the emotional eating and weight gain rollercoaster for over 30 years, I HEAR YOU.⁠

You got this, girl. ⁠
I believe in you.⁠
