Dr. Glenn Livingston is a licensed psychologist specializing in working with clients who struggle with binge eating behaviors, including pathologies like stress eating, boredom eating, and emotional eating. In fact, he wrote the book Never Binge Again on this exact topic. This book does not dance around how to nurture one out of binge eating patterns. It takes a tough-love approach which Dr. Livingston believes is absolutely necessary when dealing with the root causes of binge eating. During this episode, we talk a lot about the parts of the brain that control or ask for binge behavior and how our modern food environment is set up to make it a lot harder to moderate consumption. This is a deep conversation that covers a lot of bases. During this episode, we discuss Dr. Livingston’s struggle that led him to this specialty, how to identify the voice of justification, how to acknowledge the bodily impulse of binge eating, and how to look for evidence of success in a difficult decision-making moment. This conversation is so relatable and incredibly interesting. We know you’re going to love it!
