The simple way to break binge eating for baby boomers. Ep. 021.

For baby boomers with binge eating disorders, the real torture is the mental obsession with food that disrupts and controls life. The Big Food Industry has engineered food that pushes your genetic buttons.

Industry and the media proclaims you can’t just stop binge eating. You must  heal your inner child and trauma’s of early life before the binge eating beast can be tamed.

Our guest, Glenn Livingston, PhD., disagrees. He has a method and best selling book that tells you what and how to stop binge eating. He should know. Glenn struggled for 30 years before discovering how to tame the beast.

Later, it occurred to me that Glenn’s technique can be used with any bad habit that you want to break. Listen on.
