Mindful eating may help people lose weight
According to a new study that evaluated the effect of being more mindful about eating in a weight management program.
The study led by Carolyn Dunn, a professor and nutrition specialist at North Carolina (NC) State University in Raleigh is being presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity, held in Porto, Portugal.
Prof. Dunn and colleagues evaluated the effectiveness of increasing mindful eating in an online weight management program called Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less (ESMMWL), developed by NC State University and the NC Division of Public Health.
Although it is preventable, obesity is not an easy problem to solve; many causes and contributing factors including behavior, environment, and genetic predisposition - work together to initiate and maintain the disease.
