Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen

I’m talking about the influence of perimenopause – the transitional period before menopause – on body image. I’m looking at what the research says about perimenopause and body image, why our body image is worse during perimenopause compared to menopause, and what we can do to build resiliency and mitigate these effects, as part of the Body Image Series.

In this episode, I talk about:
What influences body image in perimenopause,
- How a history of dieting can put you in a more vulnerable position as your body changes with age,
- The other stressors that impact body image during this time,
- Why this time in life can also be liberating,
- The importance of unpacking our beliefs around aging,
- The importance of resilience and how to strengthen it,
- Plus so much more!
