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 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

Slaughter the Pig – Free Yourself Last week I ate myself into a near coma…Ok fine, call it a really deep sleep… but I ate everything I could after my wife & daughter went to bed…literally hiding my addiction and my compulsive behavior from my family who loves me. I have been like this for a very long time and it is maddening and just plain torturous. At age 43, I am clinically obese. I have hated myself, condemned myself, and treated myself with such anger and viciousness over the years it is truly saddening. I have…

If you think this is a book about self shaming, you didn’t read it carefully! Keto, low carb, intermittent fasting, long term fasting, paleo, whole food, etc. I wanted them all to work and they would have if it weren’t for my addiction to sugar. I first totally dismissed this book when I first heard about it – think I heard Dr. Livingston on a podcast. Then a few more months of failure to keep to my best laid plans piled up. A seed had been planted though. I gave the podcasts and his ideas another shot. I thought no way. And then I thought, what do I have to lose…

It actually helped me get back on track when I was at my most desperate time. I just finished the book. I started my weight loss journey in late February 2016. I was highly successful and lost nearly 90 pounds by mid December. But in between that time, I’ve had some really nasty binges. around Thanksgiving 2016 I started bingeing so much, I ultimately stopped counting calories and just let myself (the pig) go all out of all the junk I could find. I was desperate to find a solution. I ran to my doctor telling her I’m out of control and wanted to see if she could prescribe…
