180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston.He is the son of two therapists in a family of 20 psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists.  Shortly after getting his Ph.D. (from Yeshiva University at the Einstein Medical Campus in New York City) Glenn built a 65 person practice in approximately eighteen months, and has now worked with well over 1,000 clients.

When people's symptoms resolved, he invited them into his coaching practice until, five years later, he was working almost entirely as a coach, and also directly supervising other coaches and therapists.  But because he doesn't have children, thoroughly enjoys his work, and has never had to commute, Dr. Livingston launched a second career as a consultant, helping large companies like Whirlpool, Novartis, Bausch & Lomb, and Panasonic, evaluate psychological response to advertising.

His previous companies eventually sold more than $30,000,000, and along the way obtained publicity in major media like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, the NY Daily News, Crain's NY Business, The Milwaukee Business Journal, The Indiana Star Ledger, American Demographics, CBS & ABC Radio, Bloomberg Radio, WGN & UPN TV, and many, many more.

Later accomplishments include co-founding and developing a 21 person online marketing agency, and developing his own profitable publishing business.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What makes us binge when we know that we shouldn’t?
  •  Which foods/drinks are the most difficult to limit?
  •  Where would we start if we want to address binge eating?


This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston. Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and was the longtime CEO of a multimillion dollar consulting firm. He spent several decades researching the nature of binging and overeating with his own patients, which included a self funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. In this episode, we discuss exactly why we are susceptible to binge eating and talk about the strategies, tools, and techniques that we can call upon to address it. Over to Dr. Livingston.

01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston to the podcast. Dr. Livingston, how are you?


01:26 I'm fine. I'll be better if you call me Glenn.


01:28 Glen. Okay, well, there you go. We're friends already. Thank you, Glenn. So first up, Glen, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about who you are and perhaps what you do as well.


01:44 Well, I'm best known these days for being the author of Never Binge Again, which is often the number one book for weight loss on the Amazon kindle. It's been that way for about three years. We've got 700,000 readers just about and Yada, Yada, Yada. That's what I'm best known for. I don't hardly know who I am, but I'm a guy who spent a lifetime struggling with food until I came up with a weird way to fix it for myself. I was also the CEO of two companies that sold combined about $30 million of research to big companies in the fortune 500, fortune 100. Many of them in the food industry. I'm a clinical psychologist. I ran a child and family practice for a long time. Now as you'll see, I go around talking about a strange way to overcome binge eating.
