A few months ago, I wrote the Ultimate Guide to Bright Line Eating, but something was missing. This post fills that gap by providing you with my take on a Bright Line Eating Meal Plan and recipes.

Now, let me preface this post by stating that the only way to currently get the Bright Line Eating Food Plan is by joining one of the Boot Camps. (I share reviews of the Bright Line Eating Boot Camps Here.)
I am not a Bright Lifer or even a Bright Line Eating insider, but I am a weight loss coach, with some striking similarities to the Bright Line Eating founder, Susan Peirce Thompson.
- Susan and I are both college instructors (I teach health and nutrition courses.)
- We both battled terrible sugar addictions
- We both lost a lot of weight and kept the weight off for decades
- We both became weight loss coaches
How we help others achieve weight loss success also has similarities. Like Susan, I promote a whole food, plant-based style of eating that omits sugar.
Susan Pierce Thompson is very free with sharing information about the basics of the Bright Line Eating Program. Her followers must strictly adhere to these basic rules.
The four Bright Lines:
- Sugar (omitted from your diet)
- Flour (omitted from your diet)
- Meals (no snacking between meals)
- Quantities (weigh and measure all foods)
Susan is also very open about the fact that she was once part of a 12-step food addiction program. And, we see the influence of Food Addicts Anonymous Diet Plan on her work. We also see that Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous shares her eating philosophy on their website.
“The Definition of Abstinence: Weighed and measured meals with nothing in between, no flour, no sugar, and the avoidance of any individual binge foods.” – Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous
From my research into diet plans that work, I’ve found that the Bright Line Eating plan appears to be strikingly similar, to the food plan shared by the best-selling author, Dr. Sara Gottfried in her book, The Hormone Cure.
Many of the women I coach are at or near menopause and have trouble losing weight due to hormonal imbalances. I’ve developed meal plans for my clients that follow Dr. Gottfried’s eating advice, and therefore, follow the BLE diet rules.
5-Day Meal Plan with Grocery List and Recipes
I’ll state again, that the only way to get the Bright Line Eating Food Plan is to join a Boot Camp, so this meal plan is not an official plan from the organization.
I am providing you with a 5-day food guide that I’d put together for my clients based on research into Food Addicts Anonymous, Dr. Gottfried’s food plan, and Susan Peirce Thompson’s videos.
This meal plan meets the Bright Lines of no sugar, no flour, no snacking, and measure everything, but measurements could vary slightly from the BLE measurements. I also include recipes in my meal plans, whereas Bright Line Eating would have you stick to more basic meals, so it’s easier to weigh quantities after cooking. For these reasons, the meal plan should only be used as an introductory guide.
The meal plan is designed for women with no pre-existing medical conditions. As with any change in your diet, you should consult your doctor before starting.
