Research: Mindful Eating

This study is interested in seeing if there is a link between our mood, relationships, how we see our body, and eating habits. I would really appreciate if you would complete this survey which will take about 5-10 minutes. Your participation is really important as you will help add to our understanding of the factors that influence our eating habits.
