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.

DOES SKINNY EQUAL BEAUITIFUL

Does Skinny Equal Beautiful?

 

Social media pages should come with one of those annoying pop up warnings…

“Proceeding to view this page may induce high levels of chocolate consumption, feelings of inadequacy, and a subconscious affirmation that you, your body and your life is a piece of crap; to which we will respond by selling you products that you don’t need to solve the problems that you don’t have. Enjoy your user experience”.

 

You’re convinced that once you lose those pesky five, ten or fifty kilos, Chris Hemsworth will land on your doorstep and the two of you will skip off into the sunset, eating Doritos and be deliriously happy for evermore, am I right?

But seriously… does skinny equal beautiful?

Real women come in all shapes and sizes. Who decides what is hot and what is not?  And while we’re on it, what’s up with this “real women have curves” thing? Do you have a vagina? You’re a beautiful woman. And even if you don’t have a vagina, but you IDENTIFY as a woman, gurl, werk your fierce self coz you’re beautiful and all woman.

 

Beauty, just like sexuality, does not need to be a BIG DEAL. It’s all in how you choose to view it. 

If you’ve ever eaten ice cream in your life you probably have cellulite. It’s ok. So do I.

If you’ve ever lost and gained weight a few times you probably have stretch marks. It’s ok. So do I.

Body not in perfect proportion? That’s cool. I’m the same.

The difference is I know that these features do not make me any less of a beautiful woman than the perfect size 8 with her perky boobs and Beyoncé butt.

It’s called variety.

Did you know that up to 98% of your thoughts are repetitive?

 

That means the BS self talk about how you can’t control yourself around food and you’re too fat is the same BS you told yourself yesterday and the day before that and the day before that.
So what does a beautiful woman do to beat those BS thoughts? Think about it… you will always think, do, act in the way that is EASIEST for you (pretty smart, right?) And we do this because change is, well, scary. And uncomfortable. And did I say scary? But it’s NOT hard. 

 

The Key to reaching your natural weight and falling in luuurve with your sexy-ass self is simple…

Ask yourself, are you committed to yourself, or the stories that are preventing you from truly BEING yourself?

Does the REAL you want to eat donuts and watch Real Housewives all night? Or are you doing it to numb out from the day? Does the REAL you want to cry? Scream? Roll on the floor with laughter? Then DO that.

Remember, you can’t receive what you don’t respect. That’s it. It’s no more complicated than that.

So, what would it take for you to end the battle with food and your body? Why would you want to avoid getting support and is that fear strong enough to hold you back from your dreams?

 

I’m a big believer that the only person who can change your life is you.  And I also believe, you’ve got what it takes.

Chocolate coated love!
Kylie
