One tool I’ve found helpful in changing my relationship with eating and my body is to change the focus. That is, either zoom further in or further out to reframe the challenge differently. (I talk about that here.)
We tend to think about food and eating with a microscopic focus of us and what’s on our plate. A better psychology of eating asks us to zoom further out to consider also the when, where, how, and why we eat. This article zooms out even further to consider how we will feed an increased world population, presenting two conflicting strategies.
It will make you think about not just your food, but the world’s food. And you might bring some of the lessons back down to your own plate.
