正念因其有益健康而受到相当大的欢迎，and weight loss is no exception.研究表明，基于正念的实践可以改善饮食习惯，减轻体重，with a recent study finding mindfulness based interventions may be particularly useful for long-term weight management.
Mindfulness is a state of conscious awareness that arises from purposefully paying attention to experiences in a non-judgemental and accepting manner.It involves observing your thoughts,feelings,emotions and body without criticism – it's simply about noticing them.Mindfulness may be cultivated through formal meditation practice,or informal exercises incorporated into daily life.当用于饮食时，被称为“用心饮食”，it involves becoming completely aware of the sensations experienced – for example,chewing slowly,removing distractions (such as phones,TV,work) and noticing the colours,气味，食物的味道和质地。It also involves bringing awareness to the experience of eating and your body's hunger and satiety (fullness) signals.This can help you determine if you're letting your emotions or the environment dictate and drive your eating habits.For example,noticing if you're drawn to eating a packet of chips after a hard day,或者，你在杂货店购物时，仅仅因为垃圾食品的市场占有率很高，就已经习惯了购买垃圾食品。
最终，目标是提高认识，rather than judgement,情绪化的饮食触发和体验。当你的意识增强时，this may interrupt habits to overeat in response to stress or cues such as the sight of food.
Over the next few days start experimenting with mindful eating.Next time you notice the drive to eat,问问你自己，我身体饿了吗?整天观察饥饿和饱足的感觉，and take note of when cravings occur,observing any emotions or stimuli that trigger these cravings.写一本渴望的日记是有帮助的。
