Ep. 140 The Nature of Bingeing: How to Break Out of the Food-Prison with Dr. Glenn Livingston

We are excited to have Dr. Glenn Livingston joining us on the show today. Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and was the long-time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm that has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry.

You may have also heard of him on ABC, WGN, and our 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 his work with his patients and a self-funded research program.
