Meditation can help you lose weight by addressing the problem at its root. Often, weight gain is wrapped up with feelings of personal shame which can lead to comfort eating. Lower stress and improved impulse control is a significant advantage when dieting - and studies show that meditation naturally leads to improvements in insulin resistance when practiced regularly.

- The problem
In some countries, obesity rates now exceed 30% and show no sign of slowing down. The consequences for physical and psychological wellbeing are enormous.
It’s clear that the widespread availability of nutritional guidelines has done little to address the problems of overeating and poor dietary choice. The hardwired impulse to overeat easily wins out over our better intentions to eat sensibly.
Very often we eat as a way of coping with low energy levels and for emotional comfort.
We find ourselves prey to powerful food cravings so strong we just can’t ignore them. Sugar, a highly addictive substance, is often added to food in incredibly high quantities, or without us knowing, so is very hard to cut out.
There’s plenty about modern processed and fast food which our bodies were not designed for. Not to mention 8 hours a day on inactivity, for many of us, in front of a computer screen.
All these factors are gradually ramping up levels of obesity in society, and leading to a rise in weight loss retreats and other seemingly radical solutions. But whilst they might offer a short term fix, many people end up on an endless cycle of weight gain and weight loss, as the methods are so hard to maintain.
