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.
