Bright Line Eating is Officially a Global Movement

Over the past month, people from all 7 continents (yes, including Antarctica) and nearly every country on Earth joined together in watching the Food Freedom video series. Wowza! In this week’s vlog, I talk about where we go from here.

    Susan, thank you for being courageous enough to take your vision and turn it into reality. That so many people can benefit from the program and taking it global. My husband and I are in the bootcamp as Team Baldwin and we are so excited and confident to be a couple who can be a part of your movement to encourage others to consider this course as a menas to heal and become healthy, thin and free. It is on my bucket list to meet you in person someday with the hubby at our goal weight. So there’s my intention shared with you. Blessings, Marlene

    Cannot wait for your book! I am so with you and your passion to change our ways in the food industry. And the way people look at food. I am really trying to remember your words about a doctor wouldn’t tell you that just a cigarette or too is ok when you are trying to quit smoking, when I want to eat something I know is not good for me. Thank you so much for sharing your passion!

    Congratulations on finishing your book, Susan! 🙂 Can’t wait to get it.
    My hope/request is to have it translated to Slovak (or Czech language – we can read both), as I’m desperate to get this information to my mum. She really needs it.
    Thank you for everything you do! x

    You are a Godsend, Dr. Thompson..!!! — Like you, I am a number ten. After watching your video series and reviewing everything you have so generously made available, today is my 14th day of abstaining from flour, wheat and sugar by pre-planning and spacing my meals. I am gratefully 10 pounds leaner and on my way to fully embracing “Susan’s roadmap to living thin and free.” My “bright lines food and exercise journal” is my best buddy, next to you and one of your awesome afiliates, Diana Harrison. Thank you both from the deepest chambers of my heart for putting me on the path to being proactive about saving myself from a destructive food addiction. I have a long way to go, and am so upbeat because eating addictively will cease to be the isolationist activity which was dominating my life 24/7, and which resulted in 80 excess pounds which my osteoporotic and arthritic bone structure cannot continue to painfully lug around. Thank you … thank you … thank you for your continuing weekly mentorship!!! — I just wish that my finances were not so prohibitive or I would have enrolled in your bootcamp. I did email you about enrolling, but my email was apparently lost in cyberspace among those 150,000 electronic communications which you received. — With sincere gratitude, Lani

    I am so much looking forward to the release of your book in March. Right now, it’s difficult for me to invest in this $1,000 coaching program. A digital version of the program might be something I could afford, though. I am one person who could motivate themselves without all the live coaching. Thank you for sharing your unique vision and practice with the world that so much needs this information.

    Thank u so much for your valuable and well-researched contribution to healthy eating… like actual healthy eating..!! Thank u for being beyond purchasable… for not bowing to the government’s pressure and misinformation that they r pushing on the unsuspecting public.

    I can’t afford to actually participate in the boot camp, but thank u so much for sharing the free videos. They have already helped so much to get good information about addictive foods to people, like me, who need it.

    I can relate to many of your experiences which has shown me that this can be beaten.. I appreciate your enthusiasm and honesty. I know that u’ll get to a point where u can provide, in some form, your knowledge and services to everyone regardless of their financial state because of your passion for this project.

    I can understand (as a business owner myself) why it can’t be less expensive at this point… but I know u r working on it and it’s a process.
    I hope everything thing lines up for u and your journey to spreading this incredible information is never more difficult than it needs to be.

    This will change the world.

God is blessing you because you didn’t keep this program to yourself but want everybody who wants it, to have it. He will keep on blessing you… are you ready for it 🙂 Hugs and love to you and your fabulous team, family and my BL friends.

    Hi Susan,
    Please have someone forward info re translation of your book into Estonian. I know several translators with related interests/skills and have a couple of connections to publishers. Interestingly, twenty years ago, you rarely saw an overweight Estonian adult or child. Now, the shelves are full of pasta, chips, sweets, etc – with predictable and sad results! The beautiful women here care a LOT about appearance – so Estonia should be a great resource as long as BLE hasn’t eliminated all yogurt! =)

    Couple of quick questions — how many pages (so people can judge time commitments)? And would the publisher choose translators or would translators “apply”? That’s all covered in the info, I’m sure. =)

    Tons of thanks to you – and blessings on your work!

    Although I’m part of Ocean’s email list, I don’t always read the emails. The one with the susceptibility quiz with the subject line about oreos somehow caught my attention. I saw your video where you told me my rating and I just have been hooked on your videos ever since. Although I’m not part of a boot camp right now, I am putting into practice the bright lines – no sugar, no flour – eating three meals a day without snacks in between. It’s only been…what 2 weeks? I lost an inch around my waist and hips and six pounds! Such amazing work you are doing! You are one inspirational person ALREADY for me!

    Hi Susan,
    You continue to be a very special person in my nutritional life. Thank you for all that you and your team have done to help us all live happy, thin and free. I participated in Boot Camp #2 {a huge success)and was so impressed and willing to soak up all that was offered. When the opportunity came to participate in the final survey /study that was requested of me and others, my old computer said NO and I could not. However, I’m still connected and do attempt to keep in touch. I continue to try to convince some family members about BLE and how much they could benefit from just knowing and understanding the science of it. Anyway, thank you for heeding your meditation call on that January day. So looking forward to your book and hopefully, a present of it to them just might work.

    All the best,

    I am one of those that wish I had the funds to join one of the boot camps, so it is with great excitement I look forward to March of 2017! I have lost some weight just trying to eat healthy and stop using processed foods. I can’t wait until I can read all the details of your program. I feel like I am still missing something important and your program could make the difference. Are you sure you can’t have the book out for Christmas? Or the beginning of the New Year? (Sigh!)

    THANK YOU SO MUCH SUSAN!! |Your vlog was amazing this week! I was one of the ones who got super excited after doing the quiz and watching the free video series only to be devastated to find out that I could not afford to do your boot camp. I have already started to follow some of the basic principals and have started to make a gradual shift when I didn’t think that was possible. NEVER in a million years would have thought I could go even a day without sugar and I’ve pleasantly surprised myself. I’m SO excited to know that you are working on other means to get the message across. I wait patiently (as possible) to hear/learn more about Bright Line Eating. xoxo

    Hi Susan, I took part in June 2016 boot camp and I have lost 37 pounds . I have been doing bright line eating for 102 days now. It has become a routine for me that I so enjoy. I’m in this to eternity. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of being part of the movement bless you x

    Hi Susan. As a Registered Nurse who has gained and lost 10kg more times than I can remember and tried most weight loss programmes, I am amazed at how logical BLE is. It joins all the dots for me. The Bright Lines are so easy to follow with the logic behind them. I want to share BLE with everyone but know they have to be in the right space to hear it. I know I can lead by example here – the proof is in the pudding pardon the pun! I have a friend who has done the boot camp and lost 20kgs in 10 weeks and she looks and feels awesome. Like me she had tried everything over the years. I have been following your guidelines of no sugar or flour for nearly 4 weeks and have lost 4kgs – and I haven’t even starting my walking programme yet. I just know my body is loving all the good nutrition and I haven’t once felt hungry or looked for chocolate (my Achilles heel). Just amazing and thank you for sharing your knowledge. Can’t wait for the book in March! I hope the medical world get to understand the power of BLE.

    Just read an article by Michael Pullan about the lack of support for healthy eating by the Oval Office and the interference by the Big Food are we going to combat their influence on the White House and agricultural products we have available to us..there is BIG money in JUNK food. We’re with you 100%..Thanks for making a difference. Keep up the great work..this movement can make a difference in our food supply.

    Spot on, Susan. And especially in the context of xenophobic immigration comments being tossed around by he-who-shall-remain-unnamed.
    It is so energizing, so heartening to receive your positive, loving, inclusive messages. And what a great mission. So incredibly important.
    Thank you.

    Hi Susan, Thanks for sharing your long term vision. We are all put on the planet for a purpose and you have discovered your core purpose and translated it into an amazing, life-transforming soon-to-be global reality that is, and will, affect tens of thousands of people. As a philosophy professor–now retired–and a former 12 step person, I realize that not everyone can do what you are recommending–live within your bright lines with no flour and no sugar, but I have been on the program and in the “boot camp” for 5 days and have given up flour and sugar for that entire time and for 10 days previous to your program–, and one of the first things I am noticing, along with dramatically reduced blood sugars (I am a phase 2 diabetic and have been since 2004) is HOW MUCH HAPPIER AND JOYFUL I feel already. I am beginning to feel the positive energy that comes from enjoying who I am and who I am eager to become–a thinner, healthier person–the person I was until my early 40’s when I gave up playing competitive tennis. As a teacher of teachers in the university for much of my life, I know how influence spreads from one person to another and how wonderful it is to be imparting your values of health and well-being. Many people think of “happiness” as a form of ecstasy or great pleasure, but Aristotle had it right when he used the Greek word Eudaemonia–a state of true well being. That is what your program and your online community and your own caring brings to everyone who commits himself or herself to it. Onwards

    Hi Susan. I am also one of those that could just not afford the boot camp and appreciate your honest effort to help me afford it. But I did take all of your helpful information to heart and in the last two weeks have lost six pounds and lowered my blood sugar by 30 points and seeing no spikes at all. I have tried for years to lose anything at all and have not been successful. I couldn’t even lose weight on the Diabetes Association diet and almost everyone loses weight on that. I heard you apologize in one of your videos for sending so many emails but I have to tell you they are what has kept me going. Being reminded every day that you are out there supporting all of us and making the effort to bring this information to everyone has been a godsend. You are the best and I am very grateful that you have come into my life. Thank you so much! Oh and I have to tell you, my Mom’s birthday was last week and everyone was eating cake and ice cream and I didn’t eat any. They kept pushing and my Mom made a comment about how I could just have a little piece and it wouldn’t hurt. I was very polite and refused, telling her I didn’t eat sugar any more. Felt really good.

    like you, i am a professor and a scientisit, but i teach business. i would like to know more about bright line eating as i travel alot and know that obesity runs rampart in many countries. The fattest nation is Kuwait. Obesity rates are also high in China, India, US, France, and other places as more of the American diet penetrates these nations. When I taught in Russia, I had a stdent from Tanzana who the other Russians would not work with her because she was dark skinned and Obese and I had to intervene. very sad.

    I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! Even though I’m one of those who can’t afford the boot camp (even though I was offered a number of absolutely incredible scholarships – thank you, thank you, thank you for your unbelievably amazing generosity!!), I just want you to know that your videos and the weekly vlog (which I wait all week for) gave me and are giving me, on an ongoing basis, SO much “light bulb” information and personal support that I am positive this will work for me even with a 10 on the susceptibility scale and no boot camp. You have said a number of things that went straight to my core and opened my eyes and they have become my mantra when I need them. With your constant love and support and encouragement and confidence – and the heartfelt, loving testimonies of so many others on the Bright Line website – I know that I too can do this. I wish for endless blessing to shower down on you and your amazing team, I love you all <3

    Yes, BLE IS both a blessing and a miracle – one life and one wrong-sized body at a time. Personally, I am on Day 3 of the boot camp, and see a shift happening, not just in my taking responsibility for being at the susceptibility level of 10, which means I will not allow myself to make “adjustments” or experiment for the next 8 weeks, but I have seen a major shift in the way I used to isolate. The integrity of this program was what I needed – that finally game me the courage, just last night, to tell my husband of almost 40 years that I have, in fact, had a food addiction for our entire lives together, and to lay out the full scope of what I’d done to hide my shame, and the “contraband” from him to the point where he was stunned to hear the details. This confession alone was worth all it took to be a part of the book camp. THANK YOU beyond words for the work you and your staff are doing to help the world to heal!

    I am so scared … of failing because I hate vegetables. I’m in school to get my BA/MA in Natural Health so I know what to do healthwise but the brain barrier was a real eye opener and so I am here. I am very encouraged and for once I feel a victory coming.
    I cannot recall how I came across this online but I feel it was destined by God. I was not looking for a diet or a change . Just before I stumbled upon the free videos i read an article about alcohol. I started drinking beer witb my husband 2 years ago tbe night we got married. As much fun as we have I ignored the weight gain. Tbis article explained how beer converts to acetate and the body burns tbat before it burns fat. My husband drinks all tbe time. 6 to 10 beers is normal. He has a pot belly and is so cute that it doesn’t matter. He is with me in tbis and has said maybe he will drink less. Good for bis health. He, unlike me, eats everything.
    See you at the finish line!

People have definitely noticed the changes in me (loss of 20+lbs in 3 mos) and have kept it off effortlessly ever since, by following the program. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Five of us have now done or are doing the bootcamp in my church, and may it continue to spread around the world. Bless you and the staff so many times over.

    Thank you for sharing your goals. It means a lot to me that you are remaining humble. I am unable to afford $1000 for the boot camp, but have picked up enough of your brilliant program through emails and vlogs that since January 1, I have followed the bright lines and have lost 68 pounds. I feel great and am confident that this time I will make it to a right sized body (I’m 64 yrs old). I look forward to your book and and am really excited about the app.

    You have already changed my life by the time I finished the webinar and watched all four videos. Thank you for your effort and dedication! In this video you talk about people if they are willing to do this work. That sounds to me uncomfortably close to just use your willpower . As I now know, that is a huge mistake.
    If I may suggest, perhaps better to say something like “if you are willing to check this out and listen to for videos and if you simply decide you are going to do this, bright line eating will get you there . It’s very simple – the science works. And our now global community and the amazing staff here support
    you every inch of the way.
    In 12 step programs the same saying is, “made a decision.”
    Once you do that, will power plays so much less of a role. In fact,
    Thank you, bless you, and rock on!
    PS I have already lost 3 pounds in three days and feel better than I have in many months.

    I watched your first 3 video’s a week ago. They are brilliant! Your passion was obvious then. Your research was very enlightening to me. I always thought exercise and will power was the key but now I understand. It appears you are changing the world and I don’t mean just helping people lose weight. Jan. 26 2014 is a special day. Thanks!

    Hi Susan, A big thank you from the UK for all that you are doing. I certainly feel very encouraged by a way of eating that is simple, nutritious, and allows for weight to just drop off which in my case is actually happening. The cravings almost completely stopped from day 2. I am a week and a half underway just cutting out ALL refined sugar and flour and I don’t feel hungry at all. More than anything I am thrilled that a person of your obvious integrity and intention has decided to do this huge thing for our world…. because I believe it to be HUGE. Thank you. I look forward to your book as I am not in position at this point to join your boot camp…. maybe in the future…if I still need it. I overcame a 30-a-day smoking habit of 37 years, and have been smoke-free now for 8 years this month… so I feel empowered to also transcend my food addiction with the information you have provided and the ongoing support such as the video above. Bless you, Susan. In gratitude, Chess (and a big hug back to you!)

      I’m not in the boot camp because I can’t afford it, but I cut out refined sugar and limited sandwiches to twice a week. I’ve lost six pounds in that week. So it’s definitely working. I no longer eat a muffin at the cafe where I unwind after work. I just order a cup of green tea and sip it while I read a book and relax.

    Thank you for what you are doing.! The BLE data is priceless…I have just went through my first week of no sugar, no flour and armed with the factual information you’ve provided so far about addiction and creating bright lines, it was the easiest week I’ve ever had giving these up. I even cooked my famous tacos for my family, my absolute biggest weakness in life, and myself ate a taco salad, without the fried corn tortillas and I actually did not feel deprived and didn’t cry or nothing! Lol.

    As priceless as the information is that you are sharing, the biggest asset this program has is YOU. Having a real, sincere, passionate and honest person behind the movement is what allows me to really trust the program and the information put forth.

    Again, thank you for what you are doing and can’t wait for the book!!!

      I totally agree with Cristi! Susan’s leadership is what really makes this program. I hope you always stay up front, visible, and accessible. You totally made me cry with this vlog. God bless you!

    My Dear Susan, thank you for your mission and your message. When i listen to you speak I know it is the truth. I know what you say about the Bright Lines, the sugar, the flour, is all true. I write this with tears in my eyes as I know the stuggle I have. Food is my friend, food is my love. I will grieve for the beautiful food that is currently poisoning my body. Just as I quit smoking over 6 years ago, it is a loss, like I lost my best friend. I so want to join this mission yet another part of me is resisting it. I don’t want to be that annoying person that says no to all the food offered at parties and gatherings, or have to explain why I don’t want a burger and have people around you roll their eyes. LOL. But like you said, I want to be happy in my own skin. I want to be active and happy. Im so tired of the daily stuggle I have with food, so, so tired. I love you, thank you!

    Susan, I love that you are making such an effort to get the guidelines of Bright Line Eating out to the world. How about adding to your To Do List a chain of “fast food” (that is, easy to grab) restaurants that serve Bright Line food choices? Just a thought! 🙂

    Why don’t you work on engaging heallth networks like Kaiser Permanente , Sutter Health, etc. to use your program , or is that infuture plans? What is currently suggested / offered by them is faulty, irrelevant , and as such unsuccessful. If one walks into one of these aforementioned facilities the evidence of “75% of adults in the U.S. are clinically obese .” is glaringly obvious!

      So true. As a health professional, what the dietitians are teaching is so wrong. In my opinion it only supports obesity. The tools you offer is so much more than what one eats. Although is crucial!! Thank you.

    Thank you, Thank you! I just wanted to say thank you! I was 237lbs in February 2016, and this morning I am 161lbs. Now, I hadn’t “met” you yet, but I was able to reach goal weight sorta using Paleo as a guide. After watching your Food Freedom Videos, and scoring a 10 on the susceptibility Scale. I only found you just a couple weeks ago… I feel, and believe that you have given me many tools to prevent ever gaining the weight back! I too am really looking forward to the launch of your new book! (How exciting!) I am just so grateful for the information/tools that you have given me…Thank You!!!!(I think an App is a brilliant idea! Look forward to its launch as well!) ????

    Hi Susan,
    I am one of those who could not afford the Boot Camp (retired, small fixed income). I have tried very hard to find out how your food plan works, but, of course, without the info from the Boot Camp, I can just guess. However, I haven’t let that stop me. A friend of mine and I have committed to not eating ANY sugar or flour, along with some other disciplines we both know to do (from all the years of dieiting!!). We are trying to be accountable to one another. I think this is a good start for us, and will help us get healthier. When your book comes out, we will get more of the nitty gritty and head down the BLE path in earnest. We have both been very motivated and inspired by your messages that have truly hit the nail on the head about the “whys” of sugar/food addiction. Knowing a truthful, logical WHY to do something helps you want to DO it. I very much appreciate that you “stay in touch” and allow us to still see your weekly vlog. Thank you!

      I believe Susan’s food program follows closely the food plan of Food Addicts Anonymous. They have their recommended meal plan posted on their website. You might check them out.

    Are there any slots left in the boot camp, I don’t need it myself (I’ve released over 20 pounds on my own since I first took your test ) but if I can talk my wife into it I think she can benafit greatly from it.

    Susan, your weekly blogs have totally inspired me! I took the quiz and am a three on the scale which did surprise me as I thought I would be at least eight or nine! Then I watched the video about will power that really got to me in many ways.
    You come across as very sincere which makes a change in this world we live in ! You do not know me but the last 4 years of my life have been so hard apart from painfull! The main reason being I have undergone two knee replacements, yes I appreciate many others go through the same and worse but I did not realise what was involved and thought I would be back to my old life in a short amount of time,

    That life was full of running and dog showing at a high level! Now I long for the day when I can just take my dogs for a walk let alone show them. Anyway I just had to thank you for your wonderful words and yes I have to lose weight to get fit again but it is so hard I dearly wish I could afford your boot camp but will not give up and look forward to your book very much. xXX

    Thank you, Susan. I feel encouraged by your message. After watching the video series I believed there was finally an answer. However, the cost of the boot camp was impossible for me. I was really sad and discouraged. I look forward to all the projects you mentioned and hope I can take part in one of them. I really want to live the happiest life possible.

    You are such a force of nature. I feel you. I am one of the ones that couldn’t afford the boot camp this last time. However, I carry your message and am applying what I could fathom from all the videos into my life. How-so-ever let me propose my skills to translate your program into other languages, I am equally skilled in Spanish, Italian and English… who knows, I keep opening doors, and in the meantime, like you say, I am dreaming of living my life happy, thin and free. 🙂 Thank you for your inspirtaion.

      Why not copy and paste this Comment of yours into an email and write to ; give your contact info ; and ask for it to be forwarded to the BLE staff person building a contacts database for consideration when the need comes, as it will, for translators?

      Sending loving regards,

    I can’t wait for the book! I watched the food freedom videos and wanted to join the boot camp but I just can’t afford it. I started doing the Food Addicts Anonymous program instead, but I do want to lose weight and the FAA diet is not necessarily for weight reduction…I just watch these vlogs and read the website to stay connected to Bright Line Eating. Susan, you are so encouraging and the global spread of your project is proof that you are doing exactly what you should be doing. You make becoming Happy, Thin, and Free seem like something I could actually accomplish, not just a dreamy goal that stays out of reach.

    Susan, you certainly are a brave and confident woman to share such an intimate issue with us, but it shows me what a truly caring , genuine, and loving person you are. I am committed heart and soul to your Bright Line Eating program as I am so very tired of being obese and not happy in my skin! I look forward to every new video and blog just to hear you and see what you will tell us next. I want to be able to give your book as a gift to my friends and clients to help them on their journey to better health and happiness.

    All I can say and think is that you are so enthusiastic,sincere, and contageous with your wonderful message and the aspirations of your dreams for a better World will come to pass as you have good solid foundations and the focus is not based on finances . You are a true servant and you will be rewarded as that is the law of the Universe.I have a wild dream also that people such as yourself with the message that you share will someday be running for the President of this country and it cannot come soon enough .

I also wanted to say that your weekly vlogs, your food myth series etc., which I have printed out and re read regularly, Have encouraged me more than you’ll ever know. Knowledge is powerful, and with the right information I can and will beat my food addiction, and if nothing else start treating my body with respect, eating real foods, and not frankinfoods, made from chemicals or genetically engineered food products. Thanks so much, please keep your blogs and information coming. THANK YOU,
