The Mindful Eating Cycle: Preventing and Resolving Maladaptive Eating after Bariatric Surgery
Michelle May, MD; Margaret M. Furtado, MS, RD, LDN; and Lisbeth B. Ornstein, PhD
The challenges posed by a food-abundant environment, social and emotional connections to food, chronic ineffective dieting, and disordered eating may not resolve with bariatric surgery. Offering a structured approach for learning mindful eating skills using the Mindful Eating Cycle may help bariatric surgery patients gain insight into why, when, what, how, and how much they eat and where they invest their energy. The addition of mindful eating skills to the clinicians’ and patients’ toolbox provides conscious decision-making strategies and sustainable lifestyle changes over time.
