I loved interviewing Summer. She is a force in this space. She had so many interesting philosophies in how she explained what she does. We talked a lot about this place of neutrality with our bodies. Rather than body love as this place that we strive for, it’s about removing the body love or hate or anything and just not focusing on the body. I would really love to hear your thoughts on how you feel about this interview and let me know your stance. It might be something that makes you think, “Wow, that would be so helpful for me. I would love to hear more about that.” Of course we have the body positivity/body love movement, which is obviously telling us to love our bodies ( and there’s a large emphasis on that) I know for a lot of you, based on the feedback I’ve gotten, that feels really overwhelming because you’ve never known how to love your body so I think this interview is going to be really powerful for you.

This was one of those juicy, real down to earth episodes (these are my absolute favorites) and I found the conversation to be super relatable. Heather spoke about how to change your relationship to fear and challenges that come up in life because they will always show up, it’s apart of our human experience. She talked about simple easy ways to manifest what we want, because that will look different for everyone and it’s not as complicated as we think it should be.

This conversation was absolutely incredible. What I love about this episode is that Glenn and I have very different approaches and there's not one approach that suits everybody, so I love bringing experts on that see things a little different than me, but I still so deeply appreciate how they support people. This conversation is all about overcoming binge eating as a male, so if you know any males in your life who struggle with this I invite you to send this podcast to them, how our brains become hijacked by binge eating foods, reptilian brain and survival mode, and we get into the scientific and psychological approach, which I really love.

 

About Glenn Livingston

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. 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 light hearted relationship with food.


In this episode, Glenn shares: 

  • The correlation between struggling with food and other areas of life.
  • How our brains become hijacked by binge eating foods.
  • The easiest way to naturally cure food addictions. 
  • How to overcome feeling 'powerless' and out of control around food. 
  • Steps you can take to overcome urges to binge in the moment.

In this conversation we talked about the importance of spending time with Mother Nature. I wrote a post a little while ago about how I have incredible mentors, coaches and teachers but I said, my greatest teacher is Mother Nature. Just learning from Mother nature and her ability to be patient, to connect and thrive. I wanted to bring in Alex because I was really inspired by her message in the world of interacting with Mother Nature for the well being of our lives.
