Why Eating Disorder Recovery Fails | Women Over 50

Eating disorder recovery may not be top-of-mind. But you’d be surprised at the percent of midlife women triggered into eating disruption again or for the first time. 

In this episode we discuss so much more than recovery and truly define what is eating disorder, what is disordered vs emotional eating. For every woman nurturing herself or others, this episode has value. 

My guest has her own story and has used it to change the lives of many women struggling with disordered eating and eating disorders. If you or someone you know is struggling with her relationship with food, today’s guest Mindy Gorman-Plutzer will be a trusted resource.

Having worked with midlife women for nearly 4 decades, I know the relationship with food can be complicated. I taught at a university for 15 years and know that young women are commonly challenged with their relationship with food, too.

My Guest: Mindy Gorman-Plutzer brings 2 decades of experience to her private practice as a Certified Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner and Eating Psychology Coach. Mindy’s life experience and training inspired her to create a framework that combines functional nutrition, positive psychology, and mind/body science; introducing a compassionate resolution to physical and emotional challenges resulting from chronic and complex health issues, as they relate to Eating Disorders. She’s the author of The Freedom Promise: 7 Steps To Stop Fearing What Food Will Do TO You and Start Embracing What It Can Do FOR You.
