“All suffering — including depression, insecurity, anxiety and physical disease — is a result of us never learning how to love, value and be true to ourselves on a daily basis. Our struggles and negative thinking are caused by us rejecting our true self, making our feelings wrong, and constantly trying to please others in exchange for love, acceptance, attention, approval and security. This daily self-destruction, which is passed down from generation to generation, breaks our heart, creates toxic stress, weakens our immune system and leads us into unhealthy personal and professional situations. We each can overcome the hurt, anger, fear and guilt within us by learning how to care for our body, heart and mind now. Understanding how to be accepting, honest and kind with ourselves is the most direct path to feeling well, fulfilling our purpose, enjoying our lives and loving fully before we die. It's up to each of us to break the cycle of self-harm and suffering for ourselves and future generations.”
Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals.
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 work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
