Publisher's 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 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

Great Content, Distracting Naration

What made the experience of listening to Never Binge Again the most enjoyable?

Informative, easy, fun and practical with no technical jargon. I'm no longer concerned that I may ever binge again. The method really works.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Binge Again?

Understanding that no matter what you choose, to binge or not to binge, either way you will deny yourself something.

What aspect of Roger Baker’s performance would you have changed?

The biggest distraction I had was trying to figure out if he narrator was an incredible software program or a person who practiced speaking like a computer - instead of just enjoying the content. My experience of this audio book was that a computer program was reading to me (even though it was a person) and it was missing human touch, intonation, breaths, pauses, etc. Roger Baker may be very skilled in speaking like a computer but I prefer a narrator that sounds human.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The very real non-food examples, like the wedding vow metaphor, are amusing and make the points hit home. The author even explains why he picked them to illustrate his point.

Any additional comments?

This method is so much easier than will power or guilt or anything else I've tried. It's too early to quantify results but at least I have no desire to eat garbage ever again.The book isn't about how thin people (who are not you) think and definitely doesn't contain a survey of what thin people think. Rather it covers how to not be dominated by (and ultimately change) your own thoughts.

Good advice, poor delivery

The narrator's voice reminds me of a late night infomercial. I think I would have rather read this myself than to listen to someone reading it.
