You have a complex question and one that nearly all of us struggle with as we age. Because I can't answer your question briefly, I suggest you get 2 books: The end of Overeating (Kessler) and The Appetite Connection (Lamothe) If you read these they will directly address your concerns.Also visit my site and sign up for my newsletter while you are there for tons of free info. Best of luck !

Be well,
