CADTH. Mindfulness training for weight loss in obese adults: a review of the clinical evidence and guidelines. Ottawa: Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH). 2012
RCTs failed to consistently demonstrate statistically significant or clinically-meaningful weight-loss with mindfulness training. Two evidence-based guidelines recommend the use of behavioural modification therapy for the management of obesity; however, neither guideline specifically addressed any particular mindfulness interventions.
