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.

Paleo Lemon Chia Muffins with Runny Vegan Coconut Frosting

When I decided to Ditch the Diet, chia was my (not so dirty) little secret!

These tiny little seeds swell up when you add liquid so they keep you feeling full for hours (buh-bye food obsession) they help balance blood sugar (buh-bye sugar cravings) are full of healthy fats and age-defying antioxidants (buh-bye Botox)

So next time you’ve got a hankering for something uber delish and you don’t want to bust out that block of Cadbury’s you’ve been wishing someone would just hurry up and eat, whip up a batch of these little beauties!

A slimming little muffin that won’t leave you with a “muffin top”! 😉

Super fast. Super easy. And definitely super delish!

 

Paleo Lemon Chia Muffins with Runny Vegan Coconut Frosting

MUFFIN INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons organic honey or brown rice syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons coconut or greek yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • Pinch of rock salt
ICING INGREDIENTS
  • 6 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey or brown rice malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk, at room temperature
INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.

In a large bowl, mix all wet ingredients. Once combined, add dry ingredients but don’t over mix or batter will become “rubbery”. If the chia seeds soak up too much moisture, just a another tablespoon of almond or coconut milk to create a smooth consistency.

Spoon mix into muffin tins and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the centre of the muffin. Allow muffins to cool for 3 to 5 minutes in the muffin tray before turning them onto a wire rack, drizzle with icing and serve.

For Icing: Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth, creamy but still runny (feel free to taste-test and make adjustments. That’s the funnest part!)
