The Bright Line Eating learning curve.

Over the years Bright Line Eating has helped thousands of people break the diet cycle, get away from dangerous unhealthy living, and finally taste freedom. Those results can and will be yours, but there’s this little thing maybe standing in your way. This little learning curve…

It’s all about overcoming the overwhelm that comes with
starting anything new, and how to future-proof your life so you can live in a body you love.

I am consistently blown away by the stories I hear, people who have had tried every diet out there, failing time and time again, having pretty much given up on ever being sane around food before finding Bright Line Eating. But the most important thing, the thing, is that is happening every day is that anyone who has committed to Bright Line Eating is living a long last peaceful feeling and freedom around food, years- or decades-long struggles are over.

Bright Line Eaters are living brand-new lives.

The fearless founder, Susan Pierce Thompson has a mission is to get Bright Line Eating to everyone who wants it. Everyone who is seeking freedom from the painful truth – diets that don’t work. Her scientific knowledge combined with firsthand experience dealing with food addiction has resulted in a powerful program that could be the answer to so many struggling with food issues. Bright Line Eating eliminates cravings, binging and food obsession like no diet plan can.

Bright Line Eating is much, much more than a food plan. It’s a life-changer.

Clarify your priorities.

There are lots of people who still aren’t reaching their goals, who are forever just shuffling weight and addiction back and forth between sizes, excuses, and numbers. When you’re in this pattern, you can have a “proven” method but not really be in a right size body permanently. Sound familiar?

Bright Line Eating is more than a food plan is a way of life, no longer about control but rather freedom!


  1. It removes uncertainty. You’re going to like that.
  2. It means you’ll be forced to clarify your priorities. This might be uncomfortable, but you’ll still like it.

What Really Matters. Freedom.

For many Bright Line Eaters, little victories may look something like this:

  • You avoided an impulse to eat because you know what to do.
  • You can eat guilt-free because it was part of your plan.
  • You realized you had forgotten to plan for something or your plan changes and simply adjusted because you know what to do at all times.
  • You’ve started thinking about what really matters and how your brain can be a tool to help you get there.

Freedom doesn’t come from a number on the scale, you already tried that, right? Most of the time, binge eating and overfeeding a fat body is not something we want to be doing. Perhaps for the first time in your life, you will understand, freedom comes from knowledge and doing the things you want it to be doing.

A piece about peace.

Since Bright Line Eating my creature comforts, my inner truth has become louder and undeniable.

Authenticity used to show up contaminated in fear-based thoughts and feelings, but without the soothing special effects (dare I say addicted numbing effects! …insert horror movie soundtrack) it became habit of avoiding truth that was not supportive to my success, health and well-being, I had convinced myself that whatever I’m doing will hopefully work out. Avoiding the truth, I was driven by palpable fear. The truth that authenticity emerged isn’t surprising.
In other words: it was never about the food. Addicted eating was just one of many ways I avoided facing challenging emotions or actions. There are many ways to connect with your inner life, your truth, again. Most importantly, you don’t have to beat yourself up for what you are or aren’t doing, a practice that’s super counter-productive in the search for truth.

Compassionate Self-Honesty

“Rather than wandering around in problem-solving mode all day, thinking mainly of what you want to fix about yourself or your life, you can pause for a few moments throughout the day to marvel at what’s not broken. You.” ― Kristin Neff, Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind

This means: you notice.

Act as a benevolent neutral observer of yourself without judgment. Practicing Compassionate Self-Honesty is as simple as spending 15 minutes in a nourishing space to reflect and sit with what’s true for you without needing to avoid it, erase it, analyze it, or change it. No numbing. No future tripping or spinning the past.

Simply sit and notice what’s there.

  • What’s true for you today?
  • How do you feel?
  • What do you need?

Once you’ve taken a few minutes to check-in, feel empowered to take action that’s aligned with that truth in loving service to yourself, even if your truth today is: stuffing food doesn’t make me feel so good.

What feels true for you, align with it and give yourself a break. By doing so, you set yourself free.

Compassionate Self-Honesty as a path to freedom, looking deeper into the places where you may be keeping your light hidden.

If this practice resonates with you and you’re aligning with your truth and making empowering shifts in your life, I invite you to imagine your life toward happiness.

Now ask:

  • What’s true for you today?
  • How have you been avoiding it?
  • Can you align with it?
  • How can you show yourself more compassion?
  • What would feel like freedom?

Bright Line Eating isn’t difficult.

I can recognize wholeheartedly that while Bright Line Eating isn’t difficult, it is different. It’s a whole new way of thinking about food and your brain and sometimes a “whole new” anything can seem overwhelming.

Please, please don’t feel overwhelmed! Bright Line Eating is actually an education program that just happens to sell to a scientific system to keep diabetes and obesity at large.

I’d love for you to hit the ground running with Bright Line Eating, where you understand not just how but also why we do the things we do in the system.

Why every bright line has a job?

Why having your brain on board is the only way to peace around food?

What is food addiction anyway?

What’s the very best way to get personalized answers to these questions? Jump in here.

Start from a place of peace.

What does this all mean for your brain? It means you start from a place of peace. From asking yourself what you want, and seeing how you can get those wants while still covering your bright commitment. It takes this once impossible-appearing goals and makes them appear quite doable.

Bright Line Eating one tried and the true way I know to free myself from the physical and emotional habits that ultimately don’t make me feel free.

You’ll love it.

    Interesting information. I have never heard of Bright Line Eating. I’m not sure that I completely understand how it works but am definitely interested. Is it similar to re-training your brain?

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Hello Lori!! Thank you for the comment and the great question. Yes retraining your brain is the key but it is more than mental it is also eating foods that are nutrient rich without sugar and refined flours. It is amazing we can actually heal our brain with the right food!!
