Meditate to Lose Weight?

No, we’re not talking mind-over-matter or “thinking your pounds away”. But some experts suggest there may be value in using meditation to overcome poor eating habits. It’s no secret that many of us eat for EMOTIONAL reasons: stress, fear, depression, anxiety, loneliness and so on. For some people, meditation may help to ease these negative feelings (particularly stress), possibly reducing the emotional root of the compulsion to overeat. Meditation is also a great way to use visualization — picturing the future, trimmer you — to further your weight-loss goals.

If meditation is not for you, other mind/body and relaxation techniques can work as well: biofeedback, some forms of yoga, deep breathing, to name just a few.
