1h 0m | Feb 19, 2023

Enjoy the podcast? :) Buy me a coffee:


Is food addiction real? Does it matter? Most people, at some point in their lives have struggled with some form of overeating. The popular approaches for overeating are typically ambiguous rules which often fail because they do not offer the reason for the behaviors in the first place.

My guest today is Glenn Livingston, PhD. Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, he spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with over 40,000 participants.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Is food addiction a real, medically recognized condition and does it matter?
  • The risk factors for developing binging and overeating behavior
  • Is discipline or self love more important for overcoming binging and overeating?
  • Solutions for healing your relationship to food
