Significant improvement

Application of mindfulness-based eating behavior strategies (…) resulted in significant improvement in eating behavior, and facilitated subsequent weight loss (…). Such a strategy has potential for scalability to the wider obese population. (…) In our study, mindfulness was taught within the context of group sessions. Alternative means of administering mindfulness (such as via online tools) in patients with obesity should be explored. (…) Traditional lifestyle strategies for weight loss have focused on dietary change and physical activity. This is notoriously difficult to implement and maintain. Perhaps adoption of mindfulness techniques will provide the requisite mental and emotional tools for healthful behavior change.
