Evidence-based dietetics practice traditionally involves a directive clinical approach focused on the provision of nutrition guidelines and recommendations to manage disease states. This information is critical; however, strategies that encourage client intuitive awareness of their body's needs are often lacking. Further, a client's adherence to recommendations may be challenged in times of stress or while managing daily responsibilities, despite nutrition knowledge. In this presentation we share how clinicians can incorporate mindfulness-based strategies into their work with clients. Specifically, we provide a theoretical rational for the integral role of mindfulness in stress management and eating behaviors; demonstrate mindfulness-based intervention strategies; and provide adaptations for populations of interest. This will empower clinicians to empower their clients for sustainable behavior change and improved overall health.
