Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) is a 12 step program for anyone who suffers from overeating, undereating, bulimia, or an obsession with food, weight or body size. There are no dues or fees, and meetings are open to anyone who wants to stop eating addictively.
Who might benefit from FA? People who find help in FA vary greatly. Some of us have been diagnosed as morbidly obese while others are undereaters. Among us are those who were severely bulimic, who have harmed themselves with compulsive exercise, or whose quality of life was impaired by constant obsession with food or weight. We tend to be people who, in the long-term, have failed at every solution we tried, including therapy, support groups, diets, fasting, exercise, and in-patient treatment programs.
Does FA work? Some of our members have been in continuous recovery (maintaining a stable, healthy weight and enjoying freedom from obsession with food, weight, bingeing, or bulimia) for over 25 years. Members with 5 to 10 years of recovery are increasingly common.
