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.

The Highlights

No-body likes to be punished

So you ate a pizza? Punishing yourself the next day with crazy long workouts to try and get those calories off your backside is no fun. You don’t need to be somebody else or look like somebody else to be happy, to be okay with you who you are and to be in love with yourself right now.

There’s nothing wrong with you

We could be perfectly happy exactly as we are, with what we have, who we are, how we look, but we’re told that that’s not possible. There’s nothing wrong with you. There has never been anything wrong with you. There never will be anything wrong with you.  You look EXACTLY how you are supposed to look.  If you were supposed to look like somebody else you would!

The magical fairy land of Skinny-Happiness does not exist

You’re not going to reach some magical destination and suddenly become deliriously happy with your body. It will only make you want to binge even more to rebel against the constant restriction. You deserve to be happy now. Remember, whatever message you send out, you also send in.


Have you ever punished yourself with super long workouts or restricted your food after a binge? How well did it work for you?

And what’s the One Kind Thing you can do for yourself this week to help you let go of the crazy-up-in-the-head “I’m not going to love myself until I’m thin!” syndrome?

Comment below!

Remember, the only person who has the power to change your life is you.

You’ve got what it takes.

Big Love!
