Christy answers an audience question about how much brain space you “should” devote to thoughts of food. We discuss how and why disordered eating dramatically increases the amount of time you spend thinking about food, how diet culture simultaneously stigmatizes food-related thoughts, and how you might reframe your thinking about this issue in a more compassionate way.
