Earlier this week, in BPU 101, we talked about normalizing comfort eating. How did you react to the idea that you’re allowed to eat for comfort? Were you relieved? Horrified? Intrigued? Use that reaction as a launching pad for today’s 201, where we’ll be uncovering our contracts with food.
What are “contracts” with food?
A contract is a set of expectations or rules: “If X, then Y.” A food contract is when we apply certain expectations or rules to how you eat. Food contracts can be conscious or unconscious, something you created or something you absorbed from your family or the culture.
