I first heard Dr. Doug Lisle speak several years ago at a Forks Over Knives conference in Atlanta. A clinical psychologist practicing in California, Dr. Lisle has been at the forefront of developing a clear understanding of how self-esteem works. He is also very involved in the health effects of eating a plant-based diet. In today’s interview, we discuss both of these very important topics as they relate to mental health issues.
Dr. Lisle can be contacted through his website, esteemdynamics.org. He is also the author of a great book entitled The Pleasure Trap. In this book, he discusses the addictive nature of specific substances that we find commonly included in our Western diet.
