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 you should overeat

If you think it’s “bad” to overeat, think again.

I’m about to tell you exactly why you should overeat.



You’ve done the meditation and the journalling.

You’ve tried bending yourself into the shape of a pretzel in your fancy, hip yoga class but as of right now, you still want to eat cheesecake more than you want to take your next breath.

It’s okay.

Sometimes you just need the food.

And not only is it okay,  it’s ESSENTIAL to your progress.

You need contrast. You need to know what you DON’T want in order to find what you do.

You need to allow yourself to eat the cheesecake. Cry. Wander off and then wander back. It’s okay. It’s ALL okay.

You are unique. You are sublime. And you are ALLOWED to feel all that life has for you.

And sometimes that’s cheesecake and sometimes it’s not, but BOTH of them are okay.

The minute we stop judging ourselves for our food choices, things start to get a whooooole lotta easy.


YOU are the only one who labels feelings, experiences, emotions and yes, FOOD, as “good” or “bad”. No one else. Only YOU.

Which means you also have the power to change it.


The power to wallow AND the power to rise.

It’s all yours. Take it.

We have a gift now. The start of a new year. A clean slate.

Don’t attach more meaning to it than it deserves but don’t squander it either.


When you win in life, it’s because of what you know.
When you fail, it’s because if what you DON’T know.


So instead of asking yourself how to find your mojo, stop bingeing and get those last 5, 10 or 50 kilos off your booty, instead try asking yourself who you need to be in order to achieve and effortlessly maintain what you want?


Remember, you don’t get in life what you want, you get in life WHO YOU ARE…


I want to be brave and bold.

I want to be MORE than I was last year in EVERY way.

Happier (even in the mucho frustrating times), softer and kinder to myself.

I want spontaneity and rest. I want joy. I want love.

And most of all… I want to be able to stand next to a chocolate cake without wishing I could roll around in it naked (yes, sometimes I still want that)

So I’m asking you today… who do you want to be?


Comment below, share this post with a friend (or a frenemy. Either way is fine)  and then TAKE IT for 2016.

Let’s do it together!

Big love
