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:⁠

1. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. ⁠
You might be busy with kids, meetings etc, but it only takes a moment to check-in and see how you're feeling.⁠

2. IF YOU'RE HUNGRY, E.A.T!!⁠
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.⁠

3. YOU DESERVE TO EAT WHAT YOU ENJOY.⁠
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.

THIS year I will lose weight. THIS year I will go to the gym everyday. THIS time will be different.

Won’t it?

LINE-NEW-MEDIUM- EVEN

 

I’m not writing any resolutions this year.
But I AM giving myself a gift…
The gift of no new plans or promises.

No more “fresh starts”. No more trying to “get it right”
I’ve tried it before.
It does not work.

This year it’s just me, in all my glory.
Sometimes I’m swimming in chocolate and sometimes I’m chugging green juice and BOTH of them are okay. 🍫🌿

I love myself now enough not to hurt myself anymore.
I love myself exactly as I am.
And in 2016 I wish the same for you.

Will 2016 be the year you FINALLY break up with your on again, off again promises to yourself, and lose weight?

 

Will 2016 be the year you FINALLY scratch below the surface and find out why, after all the diets you’ve tried, you STILL can’t stand next to a chocolate cake without wanting to roll around in it, naked?

 

You don’t have to be PERFECT

We all want to fix and change the parts of ourselves that we deem imperfect. But seriously, who are WE to heap judgement on our bodies and decide that they are not worthy of our love and acceptance?

This is especially difficult if, like me, you have a (strong) tendency towards perfectionism. The catch 22 is that what is perfect today will be imperfect tomorrow, so you might as well let it go.

Life is not black and white. Your body is not RIGHT or WRONG simply because you decide that it is. It’s the body you have right now, so embrace it.

 

What gift will you give yourself in 2016?

How can you be a little kinder to yourself and your body this year?

Shout it out below, cute head! There’s power in your declaration ☺️ and remember to share with your bestie for super good 2016 karma!

 

Big love

Kylie
