PubMed comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.

This pilot study enrolled 10 overweight members of the YMCA with 2 hour training in mindful eating and living (MEAL) weekly for 6 weeks. 

Compared to the information gathered at the beginning, participants "showed statistically significant increases in measures of mindfulness and cognitive restraint around eating, and statistically significant decreases in weight, eating disinhibition, binge eating, depression, perceived stress, physical symptoms, negative affect, and C-reactive protein." 

Basically, mindful eating means healthy living.

The Center for Mindful Eating - Principles | The (Mind) Full Plate | Scoop.it
Mindful Eating is:
  • Allowing yourself to become aware of the positive and nurturing opportunities that are available through food preparation and consumption by respecting your own inner wisdom. 
  • Choosing to eat food that is both pleasing to you and nourishing to your body by using all your senses to explore, savor and taste.
  • Acknowledging responses to food (likes, neutral or dislikes) without judgment.
  • Learning to be aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decision to begin eating and to stop eating.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 13, 2013 -- American University professor explains how mindful eating works and how college students can use it to stay healthy.

“There's new, fascinating research about when we eat and how it affects our productivity and weight,” King said. “Mindful eating is definitely about connecting with your body and physical activity helps that. Especially when you come to college and have so many stationary hours when you are studying, reading, or attending a lecture.”

The Value of Teaching Children Mindfulness

The Value of Teaching Children Mindfulness | The (Mind) Full Plate | Scoop.it
This summer I worked in a middle school camp. I taught yoga to a group of students that you would think would be uninterested. A group of “baseball jocks” that instead fought to be my assistant during our daily yoga practice.


...by teaching them a few tricks, we can teach our kids to slow down and enjoy their food and they won’t need as much. The kids that drink their coke in under a minute and are grabbing for another are not even noticing the taste of what they are drinking and on top of that they are packing on empty calories.  One trick I taught myself to stop guzzling or shoveling was to put down my glass or can between each sip.  This also works when eating.  Put your fork or spoon down on the table between bites.
