Could alternative therapies, such as meditation, be the answer to shifting those kilos, asks Charmaine Yabsley?
A recent University of California, San Francisco study has shown regular meditation could result in significant weight loss by helping you tap into mindful eating.
“For some people, there hasn’t been a connection between their mental image of themselves and their physical selves,” says esoteric meditation teacher Rajesh Ramani.
“By slowing down and becoming aware of what you’re eating and how your body is performing, meditation can help to change your attitude to health.
“If you don’t feel full mentally, because you’re not aware of what decisions and habits control you, then you’ll finish everything on your plate and more, regardless of how hungry you are,” he says.
“A sustained practice for 21 days sets into motion this new perception, and in two to three months you start seeing results.”

“Just 10 minutes of meditation morning and night can help put you and your body on the path to health,” Ramani says.
