According to the study conducted at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, it is concluded that regular yoga practice is associated with mindful eating and those who eat mindfully can certainly avoid obesity and associated health complications.
The study was prompted by initial findings reported four years ago by Alan Kristal, Dr.P.H., and colleagues, who found that regular yoga practice may help prevent middle-age spread in normal-weight people and may promote weight loss in those who are overweight.
Researchers suspect that the effect of weight loss has more to do with increased body awareness, particularly with sensitivity to hunger and satiety than yoga practice itself.
It was also found that individuals who practice mindful eating weighed less than those who ate when depressed or not in hungry.
