Mindful eating research is published in a number of academic journals, across multiple disciplines. Some examples of journals that have published mindful eating articles:

In order to do a comprehensive literature search, it is necessary to search multiple bibliographic databases. Many of these databases are available through licensing agreements with academic, healthcare, and research facilities, or public libraries. It is ideal if you are able to work with a Librarian to define your research question, and decide which bibliographic databases you will use. Some examples of relevant bibliographic databases:
PubMed, also called MEDLINE, is a free, web-based database of the life sciences and biomedical research literature. It provides bibliographic information, detailed abstracts, and occasionally links to full text articles. PubMed also includes psychological, behavioral, counseling, and dietetics journals and is therefore very important for keeping up to data on mindfulness eating research.
Note these searches are broadly defined and will include some irrelevant records. Talk to a Librarian about developing a more precise search. After each search I have included the search string.
Note - there is no PubMed search term for the concept of mindful eating. Mindfulness was added as a search term in 2014, and was previously indexed as Cognitive Therapy.
1. Type some key ideas into the search bar at the top of the homepage - for example body image and shame.
2. You may choose to limit the results by using various filters that are available on the left side of the search results page. Some popular filters are:
3. If you want to be more precise, check how the articles you are interested in are indexed by PubMed. Open up the record of the article (it is best if it is a year post-publication to ensure PubMed has caught up with the indexing). At the bottom of the record click on "Publication Types, MeSH Terms" - the list of MeSH Terms are how PubMed has indexed this article. You may want to consider using these terms in your search.
Example MeSH subject headings of interest:
4. Some articles are available in full text on the web; check the upper right corner of the record page. A link there will either take you to full text for free, or a publishing site that will sell you access to the article. Check with your Librarian before paying, he or she may be able to get the article for free.
5. Sign up for a PubMed/NCBI account to store PubMed searches and receive automatic email updates when new articles are published on topics of interest to you.
