Pilot study: Mindful Eating and Living (... [Complement Ther Med. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI

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.
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

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.
