Let's face it. We ALL binge eat. Who hasn't eaten the entire bag of chips, or the tub of iced cream, or the entire box of cookies when we intended on just having a little taste? Who hasn't, on occasion, drank a 2 liter of soda or juice when all you set out for was to have a cup? Listen, it happens to the best of us!
But this mentality isn't the mentality for someone who aims to lose weight. I'm pretty sure this isn't how a thin person thinks.
Today we welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston to the show. Dr. Livingston Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of binge and overeating through work with his own patients and also a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
His book, Never Binge Again is for anyone who has struggled with food, had difficulty sticking with a healthy diet, or have successfully lost weight before only to gain it all back. The key? Caging the beast, or simply isolating and permanently disempowering your "fat thinking self."
