Bright Line Eating addresses the addict's issues with food because Thompson is herself a recovering alcoholic and drug addict as well as a sugar and flour addict. She speaks with authority because she speaks from experience. This was very appealing to me. And her background in the 12 steps meant we have some of the same language and philosophy.
So here are my results after 63 days:
- I have abstained totally from sugar and other sweeteners, both artificial and natural.
- I have abstained totally from all flours and processed grains.
- I have not had a single, solitary snack. Instead, I have eaten three meals a day and nothing in-between.
I have lost 35.6 pounds and 21 inches. I have eaten three healthy meals that include a crapton of vegetables. I have weighed and measured my food. I have written down the night before what I am going to eat the next day.
Can I live like this forever? I don't know. Can I do it today? Yes.
