Livingston.jpgGlenn 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. Glenn has sold $30,000,000 of marketing consulting services over the course of his career.

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. 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.

The Psychology Behind Overeating & Binge Eating
Many Americans struggle with overeating or binge eating, which leads to obesity and a plethora of health problems.

Dr. Glenn Livingston, a former food-obsessed binge eater and psychologist, shares his story of breaking the cycle of emotional and binge eating. 

He analyzes the emotional causes of binge eating and encourages patients to identify binge eating triggers and the food they reach for when triggered. In his book, Never Binge Again: Reprogram Yourself to Think Like a Permanently Thin Person, he also empowers overeaters to name the voice that prompts them to overeat and pinpoint the lies that voice tells them when cravings kick in. 

By making eating decisions in advance, Dr. Livingston claims that you’ll have more willpower to resist cravings and make healthy eating choices.  

Listen as Dr. Livingston joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how to end the cycle of overeating.
