A French case study shows that the "gastro-anomie" often results in practices, easily incorporated (embodied), and therefore able to trigger strategies of "food resistance" in the individual and in groups. The latter can be understood as "gastro-anomic" social practices of shared and socialized food knowledge, based on some beliefs and pseudo-sciences related to nutrition and health. These practices are strongly influenced by the type of socio-cultural context, especially in the youthful university population of the Côte d’Opale. Our contribution finally tries to focus on the observed trends with the help of the sociology of game theory, elaborating and discussing peculiar "games in the plate" of food resistance (gastro-anomic games).
