In 1951, a study was published that has become incredibly famous to the point of being cited in every Psych 101 textbook. It was all about conformity. Watch this week’s Vlog to learn how the study was conducted and how it relates to your BLE journey.

How Bright Line Eating Supports Cognitive Function

The members of the Bright Line Eating Team hold a book club meeting once a month, and the book we’re currently reading is called The Distracted Mind. I gleaned an insight from it that blew my mind, and I want to share it with you in this week’s Vlog because it relates to your BLE journey and clearly illustrates what differentiates BLE from other weight-loss solutions.

The Acne Analogy

My third book, Rezoom, is going to be published this year on December 28th, and in the third chapter, I talk about the unique reasons why food addiction is, in my professional opinion, the hardest addiction to kick. In this week’s Vlog, I talk about one of those reasons and present it to you with an analogy. Watch to hear it.

RESEARCH UPDATE – Hunger and Cravings

I owe you an apology. I’ve been slacking on my obligations to regularly present findings from the Bright Line Eating Research Program in the Vlog. Starting this week, I’m going to consistently update you with the data we collect and what we’re learning from it. Watch to hear about one of our publications from 2020 and how it relates to your BLE journey.

Doing Bright Line Eating with ADHD

Our Social Media Team regularly receives requests for advice on how to be successful in Bright Line Eating when you have ADD or ADHD. Now, I don’t have any personal experience with either condition and thus was hesitant to offer guidance, so I decided to poll our community for their wisdom. Watch to hear the responses I received, as well as my take on the subject.

Perfectionism vs. Optimalism

A few days ago, I was on the Bright Lifers’ Accountability Call, and I coached a woman I hadn’t heard from in years whom I’d helped many times in the past. The last time I’d talked with her, she was really struggling, so I was delighted to hear that she was in her Bright Body now and maintaining her weight pretty effortlessly. But then she shared that she is still profoundly confused about her food and about what to eat. Watch the Vlog to hear how I walked her through her challenge.

Harsh Criticisms of Bright Line Eating (and How They’re Scientifically Unfounded)

I had a lot swirling around in my head while shooting this week’s Vlog. I never use a teleprompter or have any kind of script, which can be a bit daunting at times when I’m discussing important and nuanced topics like the ones covered today: harsh criticisms of BLE and response inhibition. Watch to hear the fascinating way that they intersect.
