Self-management of dietary intake using mindful eating to improve dietary intake for individuals with early stage chronic kidney disease

Using mindful eating to improve specific dietary recommendations has not been adequately studied. This feasibility study examined an intervention, self-management of dietary intake using mindful eating, with 19 participants that had mild to moderate chronic kidney disease, using a prospective, single group, pretest–posttest design. The intervention had six weekly classes focused on self-management using mindful eating, goal-setting, problem-solving, and food label reading. Weight, body mass index (BMI), 3-day 24-h dietary recalls and fasting blood samples were measured. Participants improved significantly in mean weight (203.21 ± 42.98 vs 199.91 ± 40.36 lbs; P = 0.03) and BMI (32.02 ± 5.22 vs 31.57 ± 5.27 kg/m2; P = 0.04), but not in dietary intake nor blood measures with the exception of cis-beta-carotene levels (0.020 + 0.012 vs 0.026 + 0.012 mcg/mL; P = 0.008), which correlates to fruit and vegetable servings. These promising results warrant further testing of the intervention in randomized control trials.
