Publisher's Summary

A New York Times bestseller
Foreword by John Robbins, author of the international bestseller Diet for a New America
In this book, Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D. shares the groundbreaking weight-loss solution based on her highly acclaimed Bright Line Eating Boot Camps. Rooted in cutting-edge neuroscience, psychology, and biology, Bright Line Eating explains why people who are desperate to lose weight fail again and again:It’s because the brain blocks weight loss.
Bright Line Eating (BLE) is a simple approach designed to reverse that process. By working with four “Bright Lines” — clear, unambiguous, boundaries — Susan Peirce Thompson shows us how to heal our brain and shift it into a mode where it is ready to shed pounds, release cravings, and stop sabotaging our weight loss goals.
Best of all, it is a program that understands that willpower cannot be relied on, and sets us up to be successful anyway.
Through the lens of Susan’s own moving story, and those of her Bright Lifers, you’ll discover firsthand why traditional diet and exercise plans have failed in the past. You’ll also learn about the role addictive susceptibility plays in your personal weight-loss journey, where cravings come from, how to rewire your brain so they disappear, and more. Susan guides you through the phases of Bright Line Eating—from weight loss to maintenance and beyond—and offers a dynamic food plan that will work for anyone, whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, paleo, or none of the above.
Bright Line Eating frees us from the obesity cycle and introduces a radical plan for sustainable weight loss. It’s a game changer in a game that desperately needs changing.

Thank you!

I was introduced to Susan Pierce Thompson and Bright Line Eating a year ago when my wife started one of the Bright Line Eating Bootcamps. I was seeing her great success with the plan and thought I would hop on board too. I had some weight to lose but wanted to get my cholesterol under control. The doctor wanted me to go on medication and I was trying various things but nothing would change the number much. Now, a few months later I am at the lowest weight of my adult life (I am 56). I actually weight about the same as I did in high school. I work out a few times a week and have some muscle weight so that accounts for a few extra pounds. The doctor is very pleased with my cholesterol numbers and I can avoid going on any medication. When I was given the chance to get an advanced copy of the book I was anxious to read it. I wanted to learning more about Susan's journey and her knowledge and research about the role that the brain plays in how and what we eat and how we can outsmart it. I can now say that I feel I can easily maintain my weight loss by following this plan. Best of all it is completely based on natural whole foods so I feel I am eating healthier than any time in my life.

FINALLY the program that actually WORKS!

What made the experience of listening to Bright Line Eating the most enjoyable?

I went through the Bright Line Eating Boot Camp almost two years ago and finally got off all medications and down 86 lbs to goal weight. So I knew Susan's voice from the coaching calls and videos in the online program.

The hardcover book is FABULOUS and my new nightstand read. But I wanted to hear Susan read it to me... Because we have so many food cues in our culture, and so many around me eat differently than I do now... I like to be reminded daily about the program that's keeping me feeling so FREE from all my former food cravings.

So what I like best is hearing Susan. She is the real deal. She's walked this path, and she tells it like it is. The personal. The gritty. The science behind our brain chemistry.

I can't say enough about how fabulous this book is... the audio, the hardcover... and the program you can join online. I was so afraid to EVEN TRY to go without sugar and flour. Now I'm on Day 658 and don't miss it at ALL!

What did you like best about this story?

I like the combination of real science combined with personal stories. I like the love that went into every chapter. Mostly, I like that the food plan is one that healed my brain and now allows me to live in a right-sized body. I'm feeling my ribs and hip bones for the first time in my adult life.

Which scene was your favorite?

While the personal stories and case studies are deeply moving... I needed the science to understand why THIS plan would be the one that would work for me.

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

Yes. And I'll also enjoy repeat listening.

Any additional comments?

I can't express the degree of emotional, physical and spiritual suffering I had because I was morbidly obese. I felt hopeless and full of shame that I could not stop eating sometimes even when I didn't want to be eating. I never in a million years thought I'd be down 86 lbs and feeling better at 60 than I ever felt at 30. But it's true. And if I can do it, believe me, ANYONE can!
