Becoming a Mindful Eater: Improving Food Choices Through Emotional Ability Training

The authors develop an ability-based training program to demonstrate that emotional ability can be trained and that food choices can be significantly enhanced, even beyond nutrition knowledge training. Consumers became mindful eaters, allowing them to think more about their emotions so they think more about their food choices.
