New music for the show, by LIOR.
We have a new tune for our show to welcome the new year! An old friend of mine from uni happens to be one of Australia’s finest artists, Lior, and as I love supporting local artists and it’s been brilliant having Melanie Horsnell’s music on the show the past couple of years, for 2023/24 it will be Lior. You will hear excerpts from his track “Caught Up” – go check it out on iTunes or Spotify if you want to hear the whole song or album, Scattered Reflections. Co-written with Cameron Deyell, it’s a great song and I love the reflective energy of it – perfect for the show, right? Enjoy. Lior is always touring, so do check out his website. It is wonderful to hear him sing live, trust me.

Trigger Warning – If you have an eating disorder or mental health condition that requires medical treatment for impulsivity, we discuss binge eating and habit reform in this episode.
Psychologist Glenn Livingston helps people towards healthy eating habits for a living. 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.
His work centers around self-exploration, kindness, and achieving food freedom if you live a life lured by food constantly without a framework for breaking free. In this show, we explore a world where we ‘never binge again’. Is it possible? Glenn believes wholeheartedly YES. Why is it that we knowingly do things that we know aren’t good for us? How can some people make changes and stick to them and you find it super hard? Do you find yourself boredom eating? Reaching for food repeatedly before meals? Finding you eat one thing that you know is less than ideal for health only to then do it more and more ‘because what the hey, you’re not perfect now so this is you’.
