Dr. Glenn Livingston is a psychologist and marketing consultant who’s companies have sold more than $30,000,000 to Fortune 500 companies like AT&T, American Express, Citibank, Colgate-Palmolive, Whirlpool, Ford Motor Company, Lipton, Panasonic, Novartis, Nextel, and more. He’s built and sold a 21 person online advertising company, co-founded a coach training and certification organization, and his latest incarnation rests on a lifetime of study into the nature of overeating. 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.
