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.

Why body love is BS

Why Body Love Is BS

And here’s how you can stop trying to “love yourself skinny.”

On one hand, you have the diet industry telling you that your body weight is the entire source of your pain and suffering, and if only you could lose the weight, you would suddenly find yourself in a size 8 body, running along the beach with a sexy man (no sunscreen or hat, of course. That would mess with the fantasy)…

While simultaneously, you have the Instagram #bodylove Influencers (who BTW are all starting to lose weight, but that’s a whole other topic) telling you to love your rolls and eat more ice cream!


But what if you don’t WANT to love your rolls?
Is weight loss off limits now?
Are we seriously supposed to have our cake and eat it too?

You simply CANNOT love a body that:

  • Is holding you back from doing the physical activities you would like to do and…
  • Does NOT look attractive to you in the mirror

Does that mean your body isn’t attractive?


It means that you don’t THINK your body is attractive.

And your thoughts (hold onto your britches, this is about to get big…) come from your BELIEFS.

Change your BELIEFS and you automatically change your thoughts which will upgrade your actions.
That’s it.
Nothing complicated about it.

No macros.
No carb trackers.
No body-love seminars.

Just you. Alone with your thoughts.

Maybe THAT’S what you’ve been afraid of all along?

Remember, the only person who has the power to change your life is you. And you DO have what it takes.

Sending you chocolate-coated love!
