My research will investigate the relationships between mindfulness and eating behaviour with the aim of informing the design of an effective mindfulness-based intervention for weight management. Initial work will examine links between mindfulness, nutritional knowledge, food preference, health values and behavioural variables as well as attempting to determine why such relationships exist.
