ABOUT THE EPISODE
Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and longtime CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm that has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry.
Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food-obsessed individuals, Doctor 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.
In this episode, Dr. Livingston teaches why Binge Eating and Overeating are such common problems, and how there are two factors that combine to form the perfect storm in our culture and have created a horrendously difficult mountain to climb for anyone who wants to stop overeating.
(a) the food industry’s billions and;
(b) the addiction treatment industry’s message of powerlessness.
