  • Hey I think it would’ve been a good idea to keep the meaning of your acronyms somewhere on the screen through the whole video. Just some constructive criticism for future:)

  • Happy early birthday!:D I love that you promote following rules to actually feel free. so many people don’t understand that mentality

  • Obviously eating within a smaller time window makes people consume less calories in total. The no food after 2 pm thing is just one form of intermittent fasting. Fewer calories in than out is still what’s in play here.

  • I love your content. Would you please do a video on how to cycle between muscle strength and muscle endurance without losing size?

  • Picture fit, it’s me Jules. I was banned from the discord because I changed my name and they said I was “unspecified” and I can’t get back in and I’m crying

  • Just dont eat carbs and you will loose fat. The caloric deficit doesn’t work you can eat 5000 calories in protein and you will not get fat you will just increase your muscle mas

  • I remember I had casually lost about 4Kg in 3 months, I gained them all in the rest of the year. (note that I’m just a bit overweight). Probably could not happen if I started exercising

  • I have been a victim of a Yo-Yo effect and to be honest my body gave me a chance to maintain my achieved results for more than a year after my first extreme weight loss stopped but after that it hit me hard that I gained almost my first weight before I began dieting and working out. Now I am in a second journey to get rid of the weight I gained especially after I included resistance trainings to my workout but that fast weight loss I once achieved never happened again. Don’t get me wrong here, I am still losing weight and building a lean body mass but the only thing is that the process isn’t as it once was when I first started. To keep the long story, short: Don’t mess with your body weight and don’t give up on any effort once you reach to your goal because this trap will cost you so much. Stay consistent!

  • Sounds very convincing. But how do you make your body not fighting you and your brain not tricking you? What are the eating principles?

  • When I want to lose weight I eat about 2000.
    When I want to maintain I eat rougly 2600.-2700.
    When I want to gain I eat roughly 3000.

  • Have you done any fitness research on the face reveal? A face reveal next video will surely inform me on my physical health.

    Just kidding of course, great content once again.

  • This makes me furious and want to cry. Having recovered from anorexia, exercise has been my saving grace in terms of making me feel good about my body and my self. And my appetite does not increase whatsoever when I train. It actually decreases. And I was eating loaves of bread (for a snack) and I didn’t gain any weight I actually lost weight during my recovery. The points in your video are NOT rules of how the body works for everybody. You’re just trying to sell a program/book ��

  • I have a radical solution: 500mg of caffeine (pills not just coffee) every day. You will feel the need to expend energy trust me.:)

  • Hey you should do a video on Water Fasting! I’m currently on day 7, while doing light calisthenics and using 10-15lbs dumbbells for my daily workouts

  • Day 12 for me…it feels like it is MY birthday and I received the best gift when I happened upon you. Thank you for all that you do!

  • Love your vlogs Susan. Went through bootcamp and rezoomig. I am right now just doing easy stretches and exercises from my physiotherapist. I work with a geriatric population and mobility and flexibility are crucial for strength later on. I would suggest dancing of any kind, especially belly dance for women. I used to belly dance professionally. I believe Prince’s wife was a belly dancer. It’s a beautiful art form and incredible fun and even stops menstruI cramps! Yup. I didn’t want to go to class one day because I had bad cramps but my sister convinced me and five minutes in the cramps were gone, no painkillers. understand that exercise extremes certainly do not work, I know because I’ve done it too. People need to have fun and do movement that makes them happy and isn’t an onerous chore. Thanks!

  • Deep down we all know how to keep the weight off, and it sounds easy, but you don’t know what’s going on in someone’s mind. Their mental state is the most important thing.

  • Thanks for your videos!
    I noticed you said that cardio is the best burning calories, and im not sure if this is entirely true. The reason cardio burns calories effectively is the increased heart rate, but it caps out at certain levels because its a generally steady activity. You can alternate the pace to spike the heart rate, true, but i think there are more effective ways to do it if you add weights to it. I dont remember if i read an article about a study done or if i heard it from Jeff Cavalier, but training methods similar to HIIT will take your heart rate up to the same or higher level as cardio and you will have to use additional energy to move weights. So your total energy expended during the workout would be the same or higher, plus you’d spend additional energy for recovery. I dont think you did a video about it (i think i saw most of your vids). But maybe this would he something youd be willing to look into

  • BMR changed in obese people after weeks on a low fat whole food plantbased diet (whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables). I don’t know if this would be to the same extend in non obese people but getting the unnecessary fat out of your cells should do the trick.

  • A new view about food is our hormonal response to different types of food. All calories are not the same, Dr Fung says the concept of calories doesn’t make sense when it comes to eating. Eating 2000 calories of green veg vs 2000 calories of ice cream have very different effects. Green veg won’t make you fat no matter how much you eat. What’s your opinion on this?

  • This is true. ive been going to curves for two months. I have not changed my eating habits. im just working out 4 times a week and I havent lost one pound.

  • I typically agree with the majority of things you say, but today I respectfully disagree. Doing more may not be sustainable for most. Although more muscle is a great strategy, it still goes back to the diet. Perhaps you can do another video explaining reverse dieting. Restoring your TDEE is where a person should be, not doing more exercise.

  • What did you major in? Curious because I will be attending university this year and this realm of science is what intrigued me the most

  • I think you may be right, especially as you age. I will try. Worst case scenario I go back to the gym.

    Loved my Prince too. One of the last concerts I saw in Toronto. Exotic City all the way!

  • As always, thank you for your informative and well researched videos!:)

    I have a somewhat tangentially related question. Where are sports like climbing or swimming located on the cardio <-> resistance training spectrum? I am asking because, after a knee injury due to bad form, I dropped weightlifting and have been doing bouldering (indoor rock climbing) instead of weight training. I am aware that it isn’t the most effective way to actually gain muscle, but I was wondering how well of a job it does. Also I find it way more enjoyable than weightlifting so there’s also that. (:

  • Approximately four weeks ago, I met Dr. Susan Swanston after
    being on diabetes medication for nine years.

    I was told by my previous doctor that my diabetes will progressively
    get worst and that it cannot be cured, it will shorten my life, my future was a
    heart attack, kidney disease etc.

    After being on the Keto diet and intermittent fasting for
    one month, I have lost 16kg’s, Dr. Swantson has taken me of four of my five medications.

    I am looking forward to my next blood test results in two
    and a half months; hopefully, I will no longer be diabetic.

    I cannot thank Dr. Swantson enough; she is a “real doctor,”
    a lifesaver.

    I used to hate going to my old doctor (doom and gloom), but
    now I count the days until I see Dr. Swantson, so positive and upbeat.

  • Quick questions does the 4 calories per gram of carb/protein INCLUDE the TEF? Also whats the TEF of Alcohol for those of use who like a small glass of whiskey before bed or glass of wine at dinner?

  • Wish you could be our GP. Same story with my husband, off insulin and weight loss, but had to do it without GP support initially. Wish it could be implemented in all GP practises and Diabetic Clinics. Thanks for speaking out. Debbie from WA.

  • I have been going to the gym for a while. And i want to know what exercises build more muscle. There is the bench press, and then there is the dumbell press. Which one is more effective? And are there any more alternatives to other exercises that are more effective? Thanks.

  • You are absolutely correct! I am one of those people that lost weight from 180 lbs to 125 lbs(56.5kg). I have maintained this weight since december last year. I am a 5’8 male. You are the only one who actually talks about neat(i.e. moving or walking more). I eat a crap ton of protein(90-130g daily). I am not a body builder but i realize the significance of protein. Even though my diet is pretty shit sometimes, with walking, and eating high fibre foods to compensate, i can actually eat roughly 2000 calories and not gain weight. Obviously i walk a whole lot(15-16km a day), but it just further proves NEAT is crucial to prevent weight gain.
    If i don’t do any physical activity, my TDEE drops to roughly 1400 calories, and i start to see a gain in weight. So physical activity is super important.

    -Energy needs decrease with weight loss as we are losing mass that previously required energy to preserve
    -to continue losing weight you must reduce caloric intake further however this isn’t sustainable as it will lead to you starving yourself and reverting back to your old habits
    -Instead of focusing only on achieving an energy deficit, our attention is better placed on improving our energy needs, in other words, increasing our TDEE, total daily energy expenditure
    -This can be done through increasing our Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR is the amount of energy we need to survive on a daily basis) through increased muscle mass as muscle is very energy demanding
    -Increasing intake of foods that have a higher Thermic effect (TEF is the energy it takes to break down and digest the food we eat), protein has a thermic effect of 20-30% which means 20-30% of the energy provided from protein contributes to its breakdown and digestion, carbs have a TEF of 5-10% and fats only 3%
    -avoid long periods of heavy energy deficits
    -Increase exercise as a means of achieving a deficit once calories start getting to low, your calories can only be brought down so much

  • This is so true. I used to be a gym bunny years ago. I may have been more toned but it was a daily battle because I was constantly thinking what can I get at? What can I eat? I’m starving and I’ve been at the gym, I’ve burned it? So wrong. Now the truth. This is absolutely the truth.

  • I’ve tried to stick to this ‘1,6-2g Protein/kg Body weight’ for about 10 days only eating nuts, meat, and several protein rich foods. I dont know why but my stomach didnt really coped with that diet: in other words i had massive bloating out of hell. Is this normal? What should i do about it?

  • How does one combat the lowering of BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) that comes along with prolonged calorie restriction? Rarely ever see anyone mention this. Also, great video as always!:)

  • wow, first i expected that it would be just another banal and pedestrian video, but this video cant have better explained this topic.
    Great work…

  • Hey picture fit! Would be really cool if you could make an ultimate ab video! You have a few but they’re basic and the information all over online says a bunch of different stuff and I trust your information and advice above all. Info included in the video could be, how to tone/work upper, middle and lower abs, how long it takes to see results, how long it would take of ab inactivity to lose gains, how important working obliques are for a six pack, how to further improve visibility of abs once you’ve plateaued/what could help in getting further results and the like! Would be pretty awesome if possible:)

  • wow I run a gym and we always tell people diet is 80%+ of the equation but we have all also told people that every pound of muscle they gain burns and extra 100 ish calories a day. Have I been lying?  I thought muscle was hungry and always consuming calories even while you sleep. EDIT: You’re right. I’m finding lots of articles saying that the thing we’ve been telling people for years is just NOT true. Good grief.

  • NEAT levels are why european exchange students balloon up when they visit the US. Europe is a much more walkable place than America, where we drive EVERYWHERE. So, it plays merry hell on Europeans waistlines when they no longer bike and walk everyday.

  • If I dont eat carbs after workout, can my body use the stored fat to replenish glycogen levels by next day.
    Also if the only time I have for gym is after dinner, should I skip the gym that particular day or go ahead to work out on a full stomach?

  • Hi Susan,

    I’m 17 and live with my family who always have tons of food at home which I’m literally powerless to resist.. However, as soon as I’m out of the house for a few days I experience zero drive to eat ( it’s scary, considering how bad my binging has been for the last 2 years).
    My question is if there’s still a possibility for me to establish great eating habits that are automatic while still living at home, or should I wait until I move out and then never buy those ‘trigger foods’ again? But I want to start losing weight NOW! it’s a daily battle which my addicted brain always wins.. Can you help me?


  • Personally, I found that the best way to both lose weight and keep it off is to recondition yourself to “eat leaner”:
    1. Not soft drinks or the like with any calories in them.
    2. Restricting calorie-dense foods to about one portion per day at most.
    3. Not eating past the point of satiation.

    With that I was able to lose nearly a third of my body weight with no adjustments to my completely sedentary lifestyle. I have since, on two occasions, only regained 20% of the weight I lost, and lost that weight again both times.

    I’ve kept at it long enough that now saying skinny has become effortless.

  • Wow, this video really spoke to me.  I’ve lost 50 lbs in 5 months with a regimented eating plan, sleeping well, no exception and with NO exercise and ever since ive incorporated exercise back I am hungry ALL THE TIME and my weight has stalled for a month..!!!!.Im contemplating stopping, wow great video!!!

  • muscle weighs more than fat therefore women who exercising seemingly did not lose weight but I bet their clothes was fitting much better. Also the benefits of exercise are so many that even if there was no weight loss it would still be a good idea to encourage it

  • Hormones play an underrated role in weight loss. Insulin tells the body to store fat, so if you need to lose weight, you need to target your insulin. You can cut your calories all you want, but you’re not going to lose weight of your insulin stays high. If your insulin stays high, you will not be able to tap into your fat stores, and you will have no energy if you are eating insufficient calories. By intermittent or prolonged fasting, going keto, or by eliminating high glycemic load foods, you will keep your insulin lower, and be able to burn fat while having energy. Insulin is the key. If you keep your insulin high, you won’t burn fat. Period. Increasing muscle mass and increasing physical activity certainly helps, and absolutely should be employed as strategies, but you need to have the energy to sustain activity and muscle. The only way to do that is to tap into your body’s fat stores. This can be accomplished by intermittent fasting which gives the body a window of low insulin to be able to burn fat, or by eating a ketogenic diet, which does the same by cutting insulin boosting foods. A caloric deficit is necessary to achieve weight loss, but the low insulin will enable the body to meet the energy needs by burning fat reserves. Combining the two will yield the best results for clean, healthy, and sustainable weight loss. Eliminating low nutrient density foods helps. Simple sugars, especially fructose are your worst enemies when your goal is far loss. Eating whole foods at strategic times is the best recipe for success. Simply cutting calories won’t work.

  • As an avid mountain biker just starting this program I am concerned. I ride 1-2 times a week and do not plan on stopping. Wondering if anyone else has a similar situation that they can comment on.

  • I am 5’8 and was 160 lbs for 30 straight years eating anything,including pizza/wings and fattening foods,anything i wanted.I also had a regimen of sports almost every single day,i was extremely active.

    What i got was not MORE FUEL,i got a TIRED feeling and wanted sleep which i now lack as i get very little sleep.So since losing the heavy exercise is less sleep and more weight.

  • Your videos are amazing. Informational, entertaining and fun. What else could you ask from a health channel. Others should take note. Thanks for the hard work you put into these. Sincerely, a happy subscriber!

  • I was 160 pounds last year and after my ACL surgery I gained 60 pounds. I needed this video thanks. I’m gonna get to 150 even if it takes me 2 years

  • Neat activities like doing laundry and mopping and sweeping helps me to maintain my weight by distracting me from being bored and eating more food but any activities that marginalize and take attention off of food work for me this way too

  • I am now at Day 12 of the 14 day video series… and it has taken me almost two weeks to actually GET (understand) the program. LOL But, I have to say, this IS the most insightful & affective way to go. Even IF I haven’t gotten there YET! But, what I now know is that I am prepared for Battle. I’m at 166, after being at one time… 230 lbs. That was 8 years ago. And fluctuated during that time. I didn’t get it? And I didn’t understand How foods are addictive! I tried them all…WW, Jenny Craig, diet pills…and not once did it occur to me that something was wrong with THEIR system. I always thought IT was ME, and my fault…even tho’ I worked so dam hard to do the right thing.

    I just want to thank you, that at age 67 I can be thin and beautiful again. I haven’t seen that way of life since I was in my 30’s. And I was never a fat kid…looking back at my pictures as a child..I was not even chubby. UNTIL we moved back to the States (I was born in Germany, and travelled during my younger life) My Mom was not even Fat. BUT my DAD was American, and always obese (from what I recall) HE Died at 62, lost his legs in his 50’s….and had diabetes, blocked arteries. I thought this was my future!

    But all these decades, I was not educated in a way that Worked. And Bright Lines Works!!! Thank you, I am sharing this with all that will listen. Your Videos are Supportive & refreshing… best investment I have ever made. I can’t wait till I get to Goal Weight!!! And I plan on being there by the end of Summer Sept. 1 is my Deadline.

    Thank you thank you thank you… I feel like my LIFE just Woke up to a new Joy and Hope, that I never thought possible. And yes, I was like that girl you mentioned in the video…I’m an Artist… I want to be the person I used to be A singer, and painter & just back to my Excited about Life Self!!!

  • I have been at both ends of the spectrum,unreal low fat content and heavy over weight.

    Exercise most certainly is the answer because i had a cleaner diet and gained weight simply because i got injured and sick and gained weight quickly.
    When i was very active playing sports,i could eat and drink anything and NEVER gained weight.

    I feel the reason people are so confused is because the body sort of gets into a system where it takes massive changes to make a difference because the body is so used to a certain condition over many years.

  • I believe you BUT: Im on second day of BC. Also in the over 70 age group. I’m too heavy to do strenuous exercise now but am afraid to give up my gentle joints water class 3 times a week. That and walking in the pool, really help my arthritis. Also my heart doctor wants me to walk or swim 5 days a week. Hmmmm help

  • I’m starting BC next week. I was planning to go to the gym especially because my strength and flexibility has greatly decreased in the past year or two. What might you suggest I do to strengthen/stretch at home to help with this and not over stress my system? I do have a gentle yoga online class I have access too. Is that enough?

  • Hi I was a Hill farmer in Scotland for 30 years. I did an incredible amount of exercise in my job,but still put on weight. So I agree with this blog. Compensation is the key word here. In would walk for3 or 4 hours,but what a breakfast we would have!I am now retired and put on more weight. I have been on brightline eating for 8 days and I am loosing weight and managing. I do have to exercise as I am due for 2 knee replacements this year. So I am trying to concentrate my exercise to build up muscle to help the knees.

  • 1,76 height, 58,8 kg, 15-30m cardio p/day and 15m weigths. I starting to gain muscles but i have belly fat( i eat 1600kcall per day)i dont know what to do.. how to lose belly fat? I have fat only there

  • Summer bodies are made in winter. I am making mine, what about you? You can create training and meal plan yourself, or you can save your time and visit NextLevelDiet. You chose

  • I know this is truth.. too many times I have made excuses for unhealthy food after exercise.. and before I know it I do a 180 with my food choices. I love that there is no exercise in BLE.. I don’t really enjoy it and have a disability that limits me. just healthy eating habbits.. makes sense!

  • This really helps!!! I love how you described 10 pounds of muscles ���� and how much more that would burn. 40 calories is not worth stopping my weight loss:)

  • Hmmm what if you have just 10-15lbs to lose?? All the reasons you stated you’ll go back to exercise eventually is why I love it on a routine basis. I can keep working out right? Btw, ordered your book today!

  • You had me at Prince! Subbed. When I start viewing the cigarettes the same as meat and dairy, it is starting to make sense. It is definitely the constant bombardment of advertisements of fast food. I am starting to mute all ads.

  • There is a classic rule in brosciense that cardio kills gains. Whats your opinion on this? How often and how much should we do cardio for maximum strength gains?

  • I have no intention of giving up exercise because I never started exercise for weight loss in the first place. I started exercising decades ago because I feel better in body and mind after I exercise. I have been overweight, regular weight and all points in between but I have never stopped exercising because I wasn’t doing it for weight loss. Exercise alleviates stress for me; it does not CAUSE stress. And for me it does NOT trigger hunger. I have always known that the powers-that-be who sold the idea that exercise was good for weight loss were full of nonsense because for years I’d go to gym classes with the same people and their weights pretty much remained the same-the ones that were thin stayed that way and the ones who were overweight sometimes lost weight but over the years gained it back again. I exercise moderately-including easy cardio, strength-training and stretching-4 5 times a week. I also do yoga a couple of times a week. Therefore I’d say that the information in this video may be true but only as applied to people who are exercising for weight loss and/or have not exercised before starting this plan. The statements simply don’t apply to everyone. (And, no, I know about addiction-and I am not “addicted” to exercise.)

  • im sure a lot of unhealthy americans are partying now that they know they dont have to work out to lose weight lol hahahahaha omg the obesity rate is going to skyrocket XD.����

  • If my goal is to become stronger so what should I do?
    should I bulk or cut?
    what do you suggest?
    please help

    by the way your videos are amazing and very educative, thanks alot:)

  • Hi Susan, Happy Belated Bithday! Your today’s blog does make total sense, in fact, I figured that for me every bite counts unfortunately. I did 14-day challenge and although i was not perfect, I lost about 10lbs over the course of month and a half. But unfortunately with Easter celebrations and family gatherings I completely derailed and can’t get back on track. I drawn in my complete inability to stick with the food plan and quantities. I stopped going to gym too but it’s not helping. Is there a some kind of free or low fee continuos support group without joining the boot camp? Any other advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • Even if exercise doesn’t contribute to substantial weight loss it will make you toned and more defined which will go a long way towards making you look trimmer. Diet alone will not give you a healthy glow and toned defined body so something to keep in mind before you write it off!!

  • it’s true…fast metabolism causes me to eat crazy but now that I’m pregnant I realize exercise actually causes this. I ran track for 8years and I’m still a great size but now that I’m preparing to breastfeed I can’t play the eat healthy one minute then eat unhealthy the next minute. Exercise profits little but it’s your diet that makes the big difference. if we look at different cultures and their way of life and physique..they look good,lol but are they exercising crazy like us..nope,so this video is pretty cool to come across bc this has been on my mind for a few months now. And I want learn my body while I’m young bc I love food…

  • This isn’t true. If someone is exercising to increase muscle mass, their metabolism will increase. It takes longer, because there’s a building phase. After, it’s obviously the only way to lose actual fat while increasing ability to burn those calories. This is the best way to lose and keep weight off is done properly.

  • I would love to see the overlay of fat protein carb macros, blood glucose levels and weight loss. Then add in anecdotal stuff like ‘swollen ankles’ etc and see of there is correlation that starts peeking out of the data.

  • When I started low carb and fasting my h1c was 12.9. My first self administered blood test was 27.9 mmol. Stopped carbs that day and had the blood sugars down to “normal” in under one week. Last test 10 months after the high one was 5.3. I still can not handle a high carb meal. As long as I eat only meat and veggies my blood sugar does not spike. Was taking metformin for about a month and half. Was not yet on insulin. Taking neither now.

  • Most informative. I recommend “Dr Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution”, an excellent book by Dr Richard Bernstein. He was probably the first to advocate a low carb diet for all diabetics. There is a lot of excellent advice on achieving normoglycaemia in diabetes.

  • Wow! This episode was information packed! Thanks for really digging into the meaning behind the acronyms we so often hear, but might not know intimately. Very useful.

    Comedy was on point as always. Blue shirt guy chasing BMR in the hope of changing it, Nutritionists likely got a good chuckle out of that one.
    Spaghetti leg guy fidgeting was hilarious. If I fidgeted at my desk like that I would worry I was having too much pasta in my diet, and my bones were turning into Linguini. One of the heretofore unknown effects of carbs on NEAT.:p

  • I truly believe and hope to try this method but when giving speeches I would of appreciated an explanation of what an Amigdlah is, front cortex etc and a parable or story on what Joseph and Daniel did in regards to amigdalah.

  • I go to the gym to build endurance, help me strengthen my muscles but NOT to lose weight. I have NEVER lost weight going to a gym. But I have lost weight when I change my eating habits! Always. While I don’t follow BLE strictly…I have used IT to help me develop more of a better pattern of eating. I’m still listening to your videos and learning… but the direction I am going in, is to make this my LIFE style, permanently.

    I lost 120lbs in 9 month eating this way. Intermittent Fasting. It works last meal of the day about 3pm. First meal 9am and I’m sooo skinny people thought I was anorexic. They never saw me eat dinner cause I ate early. It works.

  • I’d listened this talk in Feb2020 and tried according to him no eating after 2 pm, workout/run/walk nearly everyday. I lost 8.4 kg (from 60kg to 51.6 kg) in 3 months. I am only 5′ 2″ tall and not overweight, but more on chubby side. This is considered a lot for me. And within 10 years, this is my best weight. I really appreciate that you gave me motivation and changed my life. I’ll do this as a lifestyle. ��

  • WHAT A LIGHTBULB!!! Thank you so so much! I have been struggling with my weight loss the last few weeks after losing pretty large amounts in the beginning of my journey. I am so looking forward to making my lines COMPLETELY squeaky clean. Thank you Susan!!

  • It IS good to know that little things can derail your weight loss, BUT it is also very upsetting to know that the littlest thing can derail your weight loss efforts. It’s awful to think that Life is so unforgiving and that you have to be perfect if you want to succeed.: (
