Susan Peirce Thompson’s book, “Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin and Free” has finally arrived, and it will be a paradigm-changer. It’s already a #1 bestseller on Amazon, and that’s because Dr. Susan has been generously sharing some of the ground-breaking science and the absolutely stunning detective work she has done to put together the pieces of how food addiction works, on her website.
With the obesity epidemic at truly catastrophic numbers in the United States, why do so many people have trouble losing weight? It’s a goal people set over and over again – and over and over again, even if we succeed, statistics show we gain back the weight and more, within a short period of time. With a $20 billion per year diet industry, why are these numbers so abysmal? Clearly, it isn’t the lack of diet books, coaches and information available.
Through her research, Dr. Susan put together the pieces that show how our brains actually undermine weight loss and – even more importantly – how our brains may be blocking us from a healthy, balanced relationship with food.
In this podcast, you will learn:
- All about the food addiction susceptibility scale – a tool invented by Susan to determine how susceptible one is to being addicted to food. Not everyone is the same, it turns out – which explains why some people can “take it or leave it,” while others develop an unhealthy addiction to food.
- Why, in healing binge eating disorder and restoring right relationship with food, it may be more important to examine the behavioral aspect of eating, an aspect most diet plans and systems ignore.
- The shocking truth about the addictive potential of sugar and flour, and the absolutely astonishing parallels to drugs like cocaine and heroin.
- Why feeling like you have different parts of you that tell you, in any given moment, to do different things (such as, for example, one part of you knows that you would rather not binge eat, while another part says, “what’s the big deal?”) is actually normal, and how having a basic understanding of how these brain functions operate can make you more successful in working with your inner saboteur.
- How long does it take to form a new habit?
- How to work with the inner critic – why we judge ourselves. (It’s much more straight-forward than you think!)
