Food Addiction Groups

These groups appear to be splintered from, and more rigid than, Overeaters Anonymous.

Food Addicts Anonymous (FAA)

Food Addicts Anonymous “believes that Food Addiction is a biochemical disorder that occurs at a cellular level and therefore cannot be cured by willpower or therapy alone.” It advocates “abstaining from (eliminating) addictive foods, following a program of sound nutrition (a food plan), and working the Twelve Steps of the program.”

Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA)

FA says that food addiction is “a disease of the mind, body, and spirit for which there is no cure, but it can be arrested a day at a time by adapting to a disciplined way of eating and the Twelve Step program of Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. When we abuse food by using it as a drug, our lives become unmanageable. Food addicts have an allergy to flour, sugar, and quantities that sets up uncontrollable craving. The problem can be arrested a day at a time by weighing and measuring our food and abstaining completely from all flour and sugar.”

GreySheeters Anonymous (GSA)

GreySheeters Anonymous may be the most rigid of the bunch. Their goal is “GreySheet abstinence” which means three weighed and measured meals a day from the GreySheet, with nothing in between but black coffee, tea, or diet soda. They do not distribute the food plan (GreySheet) to you unless you are willing to work with a sponsor to become abstinent.
