Never Binge Again by Glenn Livingston – A Book Review

Never Binge Again by Glenn Livingston – A Book Review

 The first thing that turned me off about Never Binge Again was the unkind language it used. I am not a fan of using the term “Pig” when it comes to eating behaviors, it has a way too loaded connection for many people who are overweight – such as having been called a pig.

Secondly, there are so many links to the Author’s site, that makes me wonder if he only wrote this book to build his subscriber list. I get adding some links back, but a lot of the content linked, could have been added to the book.

I am not a person who overeats, so it is hard for me to tell if this book would be very effective in its approach. But I do know what it means to be bullied into trying to implement a change, and that book reminds me a little of the same language that was used then.

Therefore I can fairly say, that I think that this book – like so many diet books – will show initial results for the reader, but because there was no dealing with the underlying issue that caused the binge eating – and he even discourages the reader to dig deeper into the why, and instead just do what needs to be done to change the habit – it will be only a temporary fix for most of them.

Addressing addictions and behavior problems of any kind needs to go deeper in its approach than simple action steps, unflattering language, and links to more web content. I find this Author very irresponsible with the subject, considering that binge eating can be extremely dangerous to some of those who suffer from eating disorders.

Book Summary:

If you struggle with binge eating, emotional eating, stress
eating, or if you repeatedly manage to lose weight only to gain it all back, you
may be approaching things with the wrong mindset.

 

Most contemporary thought on overeating and bingeing focuses on healing and
self-love. But people who’ve overcome food addiction and weight
issues often report it was more like capturing and caging a rabid dog than
learning to love their inner child…

 

Open the cage even an inch—or show that dog an ounce of fear—and it’ll quickly
burst out to shred your healthy eating plans, undoing all your progress in a
heartbeat.

 

From his perspective as a formerly food-obsessed psychologist—and previous
consultant to major food manufacturers—Dr. Livingston shares specific techniques
for isolating and permanently dis-empowering your “fat thinking self.”  He
reveals much of his own personal journey in the process.

 

If despite your best intentions you find yourself in one or more of the
following situations then this book is for you…

 

 

    • You’ve tried diet after diet with no permanent success…

 

    • You constantly think about food and/or your weight…

 

    • You feel driven to eat when you’re not hungry (emotional overeating)…

 

    • You sometimes feel you can’t stop eating even though you’re full…

 

    • You sometimes feel guilty or ashamed of what you’ve eaten…

 

    • You behave differently with food in private than you do when you’re with other
      people…

 

    • You feel the need to fast and/or severely restrict your food to “make up” for
      serious bouts of overeating…

 

Never Binge Again can help you:

 

    • Dramatically improve your ability to stick to ANY healthy food plan so you can
      achieve your weight loss and/or fitness goals…

 

    • Quickly recover from mistakes without self judgment or unnecessary guilt…

 

  • Free yourself from the prison of food obsession so you can enjoy a satisfying,
    delicious, and healthy diet for the rest of your life!
