In regards to the relationship with food, the estrogen changes in the peri-menopausal era can allow for a women to be more vulnerable to eating disorders. Our hunger hormones, leptin and ghrelin, change causing hunger to increase but our metabolism does not increase with that hunger so weight gain occurs this way along with the feeling of not having control over our bodies. 

              As a woman I understand that it's not as simple as "not eating". The causes of eating disorders are complicated and incorporates biological, psychological, and sociocultural conditions. 

  • You could be someone who has struggled all your life with an eating disorder and still, in midlife, the struggle continues.

  • You may have had issues with your weight and food for many years, but it's getting much worse now.
