Plano, TX, June 11, 2016 – It’s often said that taking a mind-over-matter approach can help people accomplish many things. After all, when the mind is fully focused on an end goal and determination is high, success is much more likely. But, can focusing the mind on the goal of losing weight really make a difference? Research is showing that yes it can. Meditation, in fact, can be a powerful part of an overall weight loss program.

“Mindfulness meditation is fast becoming a common plank in an overall routine meant to help people who are overweight or obese get their weight under control,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “This highly focused form of mediation has proven itself very useful for a number of reasons. It is, in fact, even recommended for those who undergo bariatric surgery. The process can help surgical patients focus on the need for careful food consumption after surgery while also empowering them to more readily adopt other necessary lifestyle changes.”

Mindfulness meditation is designed to help people focus on the here and now and become aware of what they are doing. This technique, for example, can help people who practice it pay more attention to the foods they eat, how much they are eating and when exactly their body tells them they are no longer hungry. It is simply designed to clear the mind of cluttering thoughts so people can become more aware of their surroundings, their feelings and actions.

“In weight loss, mindfulness meditation can be a powerful tool because it simply encourages people to slow down and consider what they are doing,” says Dr. Echt. “This can help people combat the urge to overeat while actually making meals more satisfying in the process.”

Mindfulness meditation may not be the only measure recommended to help people get their weight in check, but it can play a valuable supporting role. To learn more about the Nicholson Clinic, its locations and the weight loss services it provides, visit it online at .
