  • I got a little confused about this book.It starts with the standard disclaimer about the content not being medical advise and in the event you use the information in the book you do it at your own risk blah blah… okThen the author spend a whole chapter self reflecting on her life and how she went from being a heavy drug addict( i mean acid, exctasy, crystal meth, cocaine, crack…) to becoming a PhD.OK, I can deal with a little background even if it seems a little stretched ( I wasn’t there [...]


  • What a relief to have a neuroscientist so clearly explain that I’m not just a weak-willed person because of my weight, despite success in so many other areas of my life. My brain has been hijacked. My ever-worsening battle with my weight is mainly due to the Standard American Diet. I had no idea. The mere thought of giving up my beloved pastries practically had me breaking out in hives, which just proves the point: I’m a 10 on the susceptibility scale. This book beautifully and clearly opene [...]


  • If you feel that donuts and cupcakes are calling your name, this may be the book to help you resist their siren song. Developed and written by a behaviorist and former addict (crack, crystal meth, and food), this is the food version of going cold turkey. Bright lines are the lines you do not cross, reducing the willpower-sapping decisions you need to make each day and instilling life-long habits of healthy food boundaries. No added sugar and no flour since she states these foods act like drugs. [...]


  • I've been doing BLE for a year and have come to understand my relationship to food and myself in a much clearer wayis is a sustainable, do-able program that supports a new relationship with food through mind, body and spirit the book is a great guide and resource to get the full experience one needs to experience SPT's blogs, the community support and work all of the tools, not just follow the food plan- it's so much more that "just" a food plan!!! This has the potential to significantly change [...]


  • Fairly restrictive diet, however I have picked up some helpful hints to eat more healthy. I'd love to banish sugar completely from diet,except for fruit of course, but I know how hard that is


  • When the author speaks about the science, she is brilliant. She definitely shows what is unhealthy about refined sugar. However, much of this book departs from the science into the author's private experience with food addiction, and the habits and thinking that helped her overcome it. Her personal story adds a great deal to the book, but her private solutions do not. She tries equating flour, even whole grain flours, with sugar. She fails to make her case. Unfortunately, she give us no science. [...]


  • I've been doing Bright Line Eating since June 24 2016, and I've lost nearly 50 pounds. I'm a slow loser, but the program is amazing. What is most amazing is that my brain has set down new fiber tracts and no longer craves sugar and flour products. Who knew clean healthily prepared food tasted so good? I am confident that following this program will see all my excess weight gone (20 more pounds), and that I will be able to maintain my right-sized body for the rest of my life.


  • I love books with science on nutrition and exercise physiology. This one scored points for new, neurological research--including exploring data that the brains of the obese and the aneorexic are very similar, self-sabotage neurology, and hormonal effects on the brain. The author presents reasoned strategies and ideas for brain "reprogramming" for lasting healthy success. That said, I can't ever get past the "revival" tone of this (and many other) self-help style books. The strategies for self-re [...]


  • Compelling data on the addictive nature of food, but a no sugar no flour diet does not fit my lifestyle nor will it ever.


  • This book is hard to rate, but I rounded up instead of down. I liked the author's use of science. This was very 'sciency'. That part was fascinating to read. I liked that. She covered addiction and the effects that it has on hormones and the brain. She also used lots of studies, but even with that said, she said a lot of other things with no sources mentioned, leading me to think if it was just her personal experience with helping others. Now this was a little on the extreme side. snacking sugar [...]


  • The key learning for me in this book was that when whole grain is ground into flour, and when whole fruits are blended into a smoothie, their glycogen index rises - a lot, turning them from health foods into foods as bad or worse for me as sugar. A second important learning was that it is important to intermittently fast, defined as going at least 4 hours between meals during the day, and at least 12 hours overnight.I'd already almost completely eliminated sugar from my diet, but was still slowl [...]


  • There's always seemed to be a missing puzzle piece to my weight loss. Why can't I keep the plans I make to manage what I eat and lose weight? Susan Peirce Thompson answers my questions and goes into one of my favorite disciplines to do so- Neuroscience! Well written and very well structured, this book lays out the guidelines for a way of eating that gets you to happy, thin and free. And she does NOT make you feel inadequate, weak or flawed to get you there, as so many others in the diet and fitn [...]


  • It's a very decent diet book. Scientifically solid and practical. Personal stories are nice, too. As a diet book, this one deserves 5 stars.I am not going to try Bright Line Eating because I already have a similar eating habit and I still want to enjoy occasional wine and my own innovating cooking and baking. Food is like an art for me and I'll try to find a happy balance. This book was helpful for my strategy.I'd recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to lose weight.


  • Finally, I think I've found the approach to weight management that works for me, or that gives the missing piece to my lifelong puzzle. After more than four months keeping my bright lines bright with immersion in a 14-day challenge, boot camp, and now membership in "Bright Lifers," I have taken off almost thirty pounds and am at my lowest weight in a quarter century. That's pretty promising!I pre-ordered the book in connection with the 14-day challenge that introduces the whole system of bright [...]


  • Yes this is a diet book and many of the recommendations will not be a surprise to anyone who has tried and failed on a diet. Thompson's approach is different though and I think she's on to sometime. In this book she focuses on why diets inevitably fail and she makes a convincing argument it's because flour and sugar are addictive and even the smallest amounts create cravings that are as powerful as what happens in drug addiction. She outlines a plan to wean oneself of the addiction and it's pret [...]


  • The three things I liked most about this book were 1) the scientific explanations about the will power gap that leads so many of us to break promises to ourselves about what we will or will not eat and the explanations about food addiction and the addictive nature of our current food supply 2) the practical tools about how to overcome the will power gap and food addiction and 3) the friendly, no holding back, tone of the author who you know really gets it. This isn't an expert telling you about [...]


  • If you've ever tried to lose weight on multiple programs and were unsuccessfulis book is for you! With this program I was able to lose 90 pounds and keep it off! Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson is amazing and wants to help people not just lose the weight but keep it off forever! I had given up hope of ever losing the weight and tried Bright Line as a last ditch effort! Now I'm finally living in a right sized body and am truly Happy, Thin and Free!


  • A great book that helps people undersand addiction to food. Not only for people who live in the USA but for everyone all over the world. You are given support and encouragement no matter the food you are used to eating in your country. Bright Lines are for everybody who wants to be happy, because you feel much better; thin, because you learn to eat healthy and free, because your meals are organized and based on a structure that helps you keep the weight you reached without gaining pounds.


  • This book has quite literally changed my life and has led to food freedom, something I've never experienced before.


  • The BLE program truly is amazing. I would not say the book was incredibly well written, though. Kind of average. But the program is AMAZING! It works! I am about 160 days in, approaching goal weight. Happier than ever before. Thinner than at any time since early college. No cravings. No hunger.And it is pretty darn effortless (took some effort at the beginning). I have very few thoughts of food during the day. Compared to a year ago, a miracle.


  • Weight loss doesn't begin in the gut, or the mouth, the kitchen or the gym. Weight loss begins in the brain. Understanding how our brain is wired, how we respond to stimuli, and how we operate in a willpower deficit will begin to open your eyes to how you make decisions in all areas of your life. Even if you don't have a pound to lose and you're extremely healthy, the science and data behind this book will be helpful for anyone in your life and fascinating. Entirely based in scietific fact, data [...]


  • Well. Huh. Writing this feels a wee bit akin to coming out. Hi, my name’s Yvonne, and I’m an addict. Really, I am. Love me those sweets, and breads, bagels and pasta, and pizza. They are addictive. I’m telling myself they are poison to keep myself from eating them now. I’m convinced this book has the brain and body science of eating and weight gain or loss just right. I’ve committed to the program described because the science is so compelling — and our culture and my own body & [...]


  • I am not a chronic dieter, but I do have food control issues. This book is aimed at those who have struggled and yo-yo'd with their weight -- and also those who obsess about how much they're taking in, how much they have to work to get those calories off and whether they can splurge or not, food guilt, etc. (read: food addiction) that second part is definitely me. You're asked to take a susceptibility quiz to see how susceptible you are to addictive foods. On a scale from one to ten. One is not [...]


  • This book is an outline for developing healthy eating practices for people who have obsessive or addictive habits with food. Personally, the most valuable pieces of this book are the bright lines (no sugar or flour, eating three meals daily with no snacks and measuring food quantities) and the method for constructing meals. Thompson's reflections on building the habit of nutrition and tuning out the distractions of work, tv and devices during meals really spoke to me. I know how bad it feels to [...]


  • My 5 star rating is not only for the Bright Line Eating book but for Susan Peirce Thompson's entire life-style plan. I've only been doing it for 11 weeks as of writing this, but I've lost 20 pounds and not had sugar or flour once. That *I* can go that long without sugar or flour is nothing short of a miracle. What's different about this life style is that it addresses the root cause - your brain - and how it's been highjacked by the modern, standard American diet. Sugar and flour have changed ou [...]


  • My review is based on the concepts discussed here, not necessarily on the writing. That said, I do think this is an easy read, and the scientific concepts that the author discusses are explained easily and clearly, using diagrams when necessary. Overall, I like most of the concepts of Bright Line Eating. The whole overall plan might not be for everyone, but there are many good tips and steps in the book. I don't like the overly 'gimmicky' sounding selling points of the plan, though, and I am sti [...]


  • No added sugar. No flour (whole and refined). Weigh all your food. Three meals no snacks at the same time each day. Daily journal, meditation and readings and no exercise and more time consuming rituals. Not realistic for most and I don't really know how healthy this is. Seems obsessive to me. Author had massive drug problem. Perhaps people with a highly destructive addictive personalty might benefit from this plan. This seems very similar to a 12 step type program. Oh and you have to pay for he [...]


  • In the first part of the book let's talk about how willpower is useless to help with dieting. In the second half, I'll explain how drawing a (bright) line in the sand is the perfect diet. No flour. No sugar. And how do you stick to that? Why, willpower of course!


  • I found this book through a friend and went to the website to check things out. Took the quiz, watched the videos, signed up for the emails, and am currently on Day 3 of Bright Line Eating in conjunction with a group that is using some other products to support through the 8 week 'cleanse'/habit establishment. I did not sign up for the videos or 14-day food challenge or spend the $500 for the boot camp.Our food system is corrupt and diseased in the United States. Our 'healthcare' system is a sic [...]


  • The basic structure of this meal planning seems solid, and I'm having no problem following the weight-loss eating plan, but I'm giving this three stars because the author makes a number of assertions that seem more geared towards melodrama and marketing than hard science. Since the whole book is supposed to be built on the idea that it's based on hard science, this swerve towards salesmanship seems a bit off kilter. I get it, this author had a terrible time losing weight, struggled for years and [...]
