Study: ‘Mindfulness’ Approach to Weight Loss

This article found on the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s website details a study conducted by two doctors focusing on a mindful approach to weight loss. Their approach, which they labeled ‘acceptance-based behavioral therapy,’ utilizes methodologies commonly applied in wellness coaching and other forms of goal-oriented health initiatives. The focus is put on personal values and goals, creating a plan for lasting change through mindfulness of ones thoughts, behaviors, and environment. This ideology can be applied to weight-loss and maintenance, stress management, and general life activity.
