Do you get to the end of a “good” day with food and it all seems to go downhill after dinner? I’ve been there. I’d try SO hard to be good and conscious of what I was eating during the day and then all hell seemed to break loose at night. No matter what I did, I didn’t know how to stop overeating at night!
This is one of the biggest struggles I hear from the women I work with. Here are three things I recommend to help you stop overeating at night:
Make sure your meals during the day are satisfying.
There’s a direct correlation between satisfaction and eating “balanced” (aka eating “normally”). If you’re restricting at all during the day or eating a lot of light or diet foods, you are much more likely to binge at night.
Why is this? Because when you are restricting, it is freaking HARD. It’s like walking a tightrope—rigid, punishing, no room for error. And realistically, it’s just not possible to sustain the pressure you put on yourself to stay on that tightrope!
