1. Eating Right and Bright With Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson Dr. Ron Kaiser 43:23

Have you ever noticed the effect different foods have on your body? Like that feeling of lethargy after a sugar binge. Or the experience of boundless energy during a period of healthy eating. The power of food to affect our mood, energy, and body is immense and something we should all be in tune with.

My guest on this episode, Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson, is a best-selling author and founder of Bright Line Eating. With a Ph.D. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Dr. Thompson created Bright Line Eating to help individuals lose weight by training their brains to mediate their eating habits. It is a structured program that doesn’t restrict portions and isn’t a quick-fix solution.
