In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Dr. Glenn Livingston about how to Never Binge Again. He takes us through his own health journey and how binging on chocolate and other commercially designed foods left him overweight and unhappy. In his Book, Never Binge Again, he describes the coaching process he uses to help people stop binge eating and to start having a healthy relationship with food. We talk about his “inner pig” and how visualization and actionable steps helped him in the process of never binging again!
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. You may have seen his (or his company’s) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page. You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.
Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND 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.
