As 2022 began, I saw a prompt online from the New York Times asking me if I wanted to see the most-read articles of 2021. And I did. It turns out the most popular article was an op-ed called “There’s a Name for the Blah You’re Feeling: It’s Called Languishing.” Watch this week’s Vlog to hear my thoughts on the topic and why it resonated with me so deeply.

Optimize Your Purpose

When people do Bright Line Eating, we aim for them to lock into a rhythm of eating that helps them lose their excess weight, stabilize at maintenance, and create such automaticity with their food that they unlock the human potential buried under all the weight. But then…what’s next? What do you do with the huge amount of space that’s freed up when the food and weight problem isn’t there anymore? Watch this week’s Vlog to hear my thoughts.

Food Policy and BLE’s First Op-Ed

Welcome to the first Vlog of 2022! This year, I’m committed to being more publicly vocal about topics like food addiction and the types of programs that will be successful in treating it. I’ve been on TV a few times a week for the last couple weeks, I have a ton of podcast interviews scheduled, and…I just published my first op-ed piece! Watch this week’s Vlog to hear all about it.


The Vlog is early this week because today is a very special occasion. Today is the publication day of BLE’s third book!!! Rezoom: The Powerful Reframe to End the Crash-and-Burn Cycle of Food Addiction is finally available in bookstores everywhere. If you pre-ordered, has it arrived yet? If you haven’t, there’s a convenient link to order below the Vlog. This book has a huge job to do in the world right now, both in our BLE community and beyond. Watch the Vlog to hear all about it.

Creative “No, Thank Yous”

It’s been a long year, and we’re in the midst of the holiday season right now in many parts of the world. In this week’s Vlog, some participants from our Bright Line Holiday course make surprise guest appearances to share their best tips for how to say “no, thank you” to any food you might be offered. During this time when so many festivities revolve around eating, having a few quick and polite responses at the tip of your tongue may be just the thing you need.

The Legacy of BLE Giving

This is a Vlog that I’ve been waiting to shoot for a long time, and it relates to the questions that I get asked the most when I talk to my friends in the BLE community. They want to know the outcomes of various fundraisers that we’ve held over the years, and I’m so happy to finally share the results. Watch to hear all about them.

Bright Line Eating: Origins

A couple of weeks ago, my beloved husband, David, got a vision. (Normally, I’m the one in the family who gets the visions, but this time, the Download from the Universe came to him.) He could see it in his mind’s eye and hear it so clearly. He was really impassioned when he shared it with me and I took it seriously. We shared his vision with the BLE videographer, Daniel, and this Vlog is the result.
