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.

I’m here to sexy-up the cold hard facts as I share with you My Top 3 Tips for Permanent Weight Loss.

Is it really possible? Can the truth really be stranger (and sexier) than fiction?

The Tasty (non-chicken) Nuggets

Quick-Fix & Permanent Got Divorced Years Ago

Sorry to burst your bubble-gum, but there really are NO quick fixes; well, at least not any that are PERMANENT. Permanent takes time and Permanent requires commitment. Both of which we rarely want to give. But even so, it doesn’t change the fact that when you commit to your own journey, you have total control of the outcome. No promises. No guarantees. But DEFINITELY growth, change and the satisfaction of knowing that you are no longer at the mercy of the latest fad diet. This time YOU hold all the cards.


Diets Lead to Binges & Binges Lead to Diets

We all know it’s true, yet we bump around in our delusional sugar-haze believing that WE will be the lucky person who will be successful at replacing all our food with chalky meal replacement shakes, effortless drop 40 kilos, and then spend the rest of our lives parading around in skinny jeans and cute little T-Shirts because we will never feel a hunger pang again. Of course the reality is far from our fanciful utopia. Diets lead to binges and binges lead to diets. Every. Single. Time. You can’t escape it. You can’t change it. Why? Because no-body likes to be starved. Commit to treating yourself and your body with love and kindness. Eat when you’re hungry. Make choices you feel good about. And commit to doing it for a loooong time.


Don’t Limit Your Challenges. Challenge Your Limits

Eating chocolate cake to avoid your problems won’t make them go away. What it WILL do is create an even bigger problem, because by the time you’ve eaten your way through half the kitchen (and only stopped because you feel sick) you have TWO PROBLEMS. You have your ORIGINAL problem that you started with, plus you now have the BRAND NEW PROBLEM of four extra kilos stuck to your butt! Don’t limit your challenges. Challenge your limits. Carve out some new habits that will support you and your decision to quit emotional eating. Do what it takes to make it happen.

Share this with your bestie because that annoying little voice in your head that tells you to eat chocolate for breakfast won’t go away until you do.

Big Love!
