Meditation may help teens eat healthy, exercise more

The findings showed that mindfulness-based eating awareness training encouraged teens to eat healthier and exercise more and marginalized their tendency to gain weight.

The study of 40 adolescents looked at the impact of mindfulness approaches on the diet, exercise and eating behavior of ninth-grade adolescents, which continued 12-week sessions of mindfulness intervention.

The findings suggest, adolescents in the intervention group ate better and exercised more.
