Body and Mind: How Mindfulness Enhances Consumers' Responsiveness to Physiological Cues in Food Consumption

We propose that mindfulness, an enhanced attention to the present moment, improves consumers’ responsiveness to physiological cues. We demonstrate this for dispositional mindfulness and a short training of mindfulness that focuses attention on the body.
