Ovarian Hormones and Emotional Eating Associations across the Menstrual Cycle

Volume 46, Issue 3

About the Course:

Associations between within-person changes in ovarian hormones and dysregulated eating (binge eating, emotional eating) have been observed across the menstrual cycle. However, studies have not examined moderators that may contribute to differential associations between individuals. We investigated body-weight regulation variables (body mass index (BMI), dietary restraint) that have theoretical relevance by virtue of their associations with both phenotypes.

Course Objectives:

  1. Describe available evidence that ovarian hormones are associated with changes in emotional eating and binge eating across the menstrual cycle.

  2. Explain why it would be important to examine the effects of body mass index and dietary restraint on associations between ovarian hormones and emotional eating.

  3. Demonstrate if and how body mass index and dietary restraint impacted hormone/emotional eating associations in this study.
