Host: Bill Klaproth
Guest Bio: Glenn Livingston, PhD
Dr. Glenn LivingstonGlenn Livingston, PhD, 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, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Sun Times, Indiana Star Ledger, 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. 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.
