This episode is a continuation of Edmund’s conversation with Dr. Livingston in Episode 6, so listen back to hear the fundamentals of his food philosophy if you haven’t already.
How do we get started with your approach?
The basic premise is separating your constructive from your destructive thoughts about food. Visually conceive of an inner enemy—(I call mine “my pig,”)—that’s responsible for all the doubt and insecurity you have about your ability to stay on your food plan. ...
