This pilot study examined changes in anthropometric measures as a result of and feasibility/ acceptability of a mindful eating intervention for overweight and obese postmenopausal breast cancer survivors.


Being overweight is associated with increased risk for chronic disease and premature death in breast cancer survivors. This pilot study examined changes in anthropometric measures as a result of and feasibility/ acceptability of a mindful eating intervention for overweight and obese postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. The one-group pre-posttest study design included eight weekly group-based mindful eating sessions on strategies to intentionally and attentively consume food. Anthropometrics, blood pressure, mindfulness, nutritional intake, and physical activity were collected at baseline and 12-weeks follow-up. Data on feasibility and acceptability were collected at study completion.
