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

    "Amazing book very highly recommended"

    Brilliant book, I was inspired right from the word go and started implementing the ideas straight away. I already feel different, much more confident around food and feel sure this is going to help me enormously.

    "Incredible - a must listen"

    This audio is incredible, I've listened to it once and can't claim I've been cured overnight but it has certainly influenced my mindset at an unconscious level. I have still got some progress to make but I have no desire to have a full blown binge as I have been continuously doing over the past few months leading to absolute desperation - hence downloading this rather blunt title! Initially I found the narrator lacked animation but it must have something to do with science and the particular tone that 'sinks in' with ease!
    Anyway, I totally recommend, especially to anyone who feels they could never break away from this horrendous cycle of a life consumed by food!

    "This book is spot on!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Binge Again to be better than the print version?

    Yes - I like the humour and intonation you get with the audio version that might be missed in the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Non-fiction...no characters.


    What about Roger Baker’s performance did you like?

    The humourous deilvery


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

    It made me laugh, gasp and change my behaviour


    Any additional comments?

    Can't recommend this enough to people who feel their eating gets out of control at times or a lot.
    Resonated immediately and I feel really empowered by it.
    Practical, funny, sensible and easy to follow with loads of free support and MP3s etc.

    "useful ideas but distracting narrator"

    a useful book with some thought-provoking ideas...once you get past the narrator's voice. It's as though Max Headroom was given a job doing ads in the 80s.

    "I kinda like this...."

    I liked the simple basic principle and it's not a bad strategy to then sell the idea over and over. I found the reader annoying and his voice seems digitised/computerised. Overall, worth a listen as the basic strategy is a good one.

    "Unfortunately disappointing for me"

    Really don't like the tone of voice but may suit some. Don't like the pig reference again and again either. Just gets annoying especially if you're playing st a higher speed.

    "Great Book"
    What did you love best about Never Binge Again?

    This is the first Binge book that I bought and I could completely relate to the inner pig! I've bought many other diet books in my life but this was the first one that gave me a lightbulb moment about how I could exercise control and get off the yo-yo dieting, binge, starvation hell.


    What other book might you compare Never Binge Again to and why?

    The second book I bought after this one was Brain Over Binge. There are a lot of similarities in both books but I got more of the why we binge and many other insights about our urges from Brain over Binge.
    I was initially annoyed about being directed to his site in every chapter to get more info or download things. I buy audio books because I don't have a lot of time, but, when I did get the chance to visit his neverbingeagain site and get his Food Plan template I was really pleased that he has the site as well as the book. It does help to listen to interviews and other audio tips about our inner pig and pig squeal.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roger Baker?

    Anyone else


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm really glad I bought this audiobook. I love his food plan idea because with every diet I have ever tried, there is always something that isn't allowed that I really enjoy eating...so to make my own lifelong food plan makes total sense to me. I'm not sure I want to put anything in the Never Eat Again category but maybe I'll change my mind about this if I find a particular food giving me more problems that I expected.
    I preferred Brain Over Binge by Kathryn Hensen but in all honesty I got something from both books so will definitely listen to them both again...a sign of a great buy!

    I have also just downloaded and am enjoying W.A.I.T. loss by Wendy Hendry (recommended by Glenn Livingston).

    "Irritating narrator"

    The book is very straightforward and the concept may be helpful for some. However, I couldn't stand the narrator's voice. When he presents simple concepts or reads sarcastic lines he sounds insulting, but the worst part is his rapid, constant switching from high to low pitches. He sounds like he's practicing to be a British newscaster. Annoying and distracting.

    "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.

    "Helpful tips-terrible voice"

    The tips, though basic, are very very helpful. The voice that does the audio... painful. Like a computer reading. Had to push through it. But would recommend reading instead

    "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.

    "Amazing concept, great book."

    I became excited about this book from the minuet I caught on to the concept. After that I was excited about sharing. What I noticed was that some people were ready and others were not. When people were desperate enough to recognize and acknowledge the pig, they were able to fight off binge attacks. If they were not willing to accept the concept, they didn't have the willpower or understanding to fight off the pig. Great book.
