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.

Don’t you think it’s funny that after all this time, after all these years, you’re STILL struggling with your weight?



There has to be a catch, right? Maybe we drew the short straw in the universal weight loss lottery but still… it’s getting kind of annoying.

When all you’ve ever wanted seems eternally just out of reach, shouldn’t we just give up? Sit back. Eat the ice cream and accept things as they are.

Just accept the painful, depressing, emotional eating nightmare that we call “life”.


But we can’t. Or maybe we won’t, but either way we just can’t shake the feeling that if we could only “try” a liiiiitle harder, we’d be victorious.

Jenny Craig will bow down before us and anoint us the hallowed weight loss queen of the universe.

And so we try again. And again. And again until finally we crack and find ourselves face down in a pile of cookie crumbs, dazed and confused.


But here’s the truth. You’re trying too hard.


You can’t tip the junk food scales way of out balance on one end without thinking it will affect the bathroom scales on the other end.

The truth is that you’re always in the perfect learning experience for you. You’re always right were you need to be to move into the next phase of your journey.


You are free to be all you were born to be and you are safe.

You are safe in your body and you are safe in your life AND you are free to be the very best, brightest and most authentic version of YOU!


Nobody controls your life but you.

Nobody decides what you eat but you.

And nobody can make you feel bad about yourself but…YOU!


Stop trying so hard and just allow yourself to BE FREE around food.


Be all you were born to be. Not some half baked version of you, but YOU in ALL your glory.

Stop finding eighteen things that are WRONG with your body before you even crawl out of bed in the morning and start focusing on what’s RIGHT.

Your smile. Your eyes. Your legs/arms/belly that you hate so much… what if you decided, just for today, to love them instead of hate them.


How different do you think you would feel?


What if, just for today, you decided to stop eating when you felt comfortable rather than using chocolate to sweeten your life?

Do you think you might feel better in your body? About yourself?


When you begin to trust your own power more than you trust power of food, your life will change.


But it takes time, practice and patience.

The very things we don’t’ want to give. But you’ll never be free without them.


So stop trying so hard, just for today, and tell me how your heart sings with delight.


You’ve got this.

Allow it.

Here’s to Ditching the Diet!
