Brightline Eating was not a good program for me. I did two bootcamps, I joined brightlifers, I had a mastermind group and several buddies. I called in for coaching. I checked all the boxes. I got down to goal weight and maintained for almost 6 months. I did not have a binge eating disorder before starting this program but the severe restriction was difficult for me to handle and after initial success I began to develop very disordered eating. If you had asked me a year ago for a review I would also sung the praises, but this program is just not sustainable for most people. It does not teach a healthy relationship with food, it takes all of the joy away from food, cooking and exercise are discouraged. I saw many women struggle with immense hunger, binge and restrict cycling, beating themselves up for eating off plan, constantly struggling to stay on plan. In the end it was not worth it. It was torture on my mind and body.
The book will encourage you to join the BLE community by paying for bootcamps and brightlifers. These are expensive programs; between $500 and $1000 dollars. The book is simply a sales vehicle to get you to join these programs. You'll see many five star reviews here. Don't be fooled, these are all from authors band of faithful followers. During the release of the book, the author repeatedly asked for those in the program to come here and leave positive reviews. Anything review posted right after the books release should not be considered when you are thinking of buying this book.
This program essentially takes an ultra restrictive diet and turns it into a religion. It promotes the precise mindset that triggers eating disorders. It glorifies going hungry. It tells you that you are an addict, when in fact you're just in the throes of normal reactive bingeing, which is the natural outcome of trying to stick to such a restrictive diet.
Please be aware that eating disorders are more dangerous than being even severely overweight -- they are the deadliest form of mental illness. And they are much, much easier to trigger than they are to overcome.
If you want to know what actual scientific evidence has to say about weight management, read authors like Georgie Fear or Josh Hillis. They have books you can actually use, and programs that real people can follow.
Real scientific evidence is available to everyone. It's not locked behind the doors of $500 "bootcamp."

Not only am I thinner but I no longer have aching knees and ankles and a bad back, I don't snore. I look, and most importantly I FEEL ten years younger.
What this book can do is give you the combination to a lock you've never been able to crack ... that's how it felt for me in June and reading the book I got that same feeling again.
SPT explains the science of why some of us struggle to lose weight, and what steps to take to overcome that struggle. She is a teacher by profession so this is so much ore than "just" another diet ... this is a life changing your whole attitude to yourself and your body. The writing style is like having Susan's voice in your ear - friendly, clear, encouraging, funny, self-deprecating and firm where needed. She explains the science of why, and then clearly lays out the food plan of HOW to get Happy, thin and free.
Whether you want to lose weight, or have a loved one that needs to lose weight or is addicted to sugar or flour I really urge you to buy this book - Bright Line Eating can change your life. It certainly changed mine.
