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.

And what’s more… we never did.
They told you that you’re powerless. They lied
They told you that you’re not smart enough to lose weight without them. They lied
They told you that you can’t lose weight without another diet. THEY LIED.
