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.

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

I waited for this book my whole life! I followed the method described in the book and in 9 months I dropped 5.8 stones going from size 20 and a BMI of 36.6 to size 10 and a BMI of 24. I will be forever grateful to Susan Peirce Thompson for her vision of writing a book about food addiction and about how to live Happy Thin and Free. She helped to get my life back. The audio format is great as I can listen to it anytime, anywhere and it's going to be part of my EAP. What is EAP? You have to listen to or read the book to find the answer. It's fascinating and in the same time so simple.

Any additional comments?

The book represents a holistic approach to food addiction, based on the author's life experience, study and research. It contains amazing scientific information and neuroscience research presented in such an easy to understand manner by Susan Peirce Thompson and includes interesting study cases. The book describes a method that does not rely on willpower but on automaticity and integrity with food. The food plan is a simple, ingenious and reliable solution to gain and maintain the ideal weight.

Yes, it's a good weight loss manual

Where does Bright Line Eating rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Obviously Bright Line Eating is not a story but is still quite absorbing. I listened with interest to this slightly different way of thinking about food. As with all weight loss books, the only thing that matters is did I lose weight? Well yes in the past two weeks of following Susan Peirce Thompson's rules I have lost 6lbs. I didn't find it hard to follow. (I had already lost 8lbs in the previous 4 weeks).

What other book might you compare Bright Line Eating to, and why?

Never Binge Again by Glenn Livingston has a similar thinking behind it.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

The author narrates the book and I think it's her first. She's very American (being an American!). Might grate against some Brits but I find it OK. She is a very prolific You Tuber so I often have her wittering away in the background whilst I work and have got used to it!

Any additional comments?

Like all self help books, you have to take from it the bits that will serve you and let go of the bits that are of no interest (I'm not a great one for meditating or journalling but I'm not marking the book down because the author goes on a bit about those practices because that advice might be useful to someone else). It is a shame that the app which is not yet launched is mentioned so often, that gets a bit irritating. Also clearly diets and coaching are big business so the whole book does feel a bit like a marketing tool sometimes. Still - I'm losing weight so....... pretty much everything else is forgiven.
