Have you tried over and over to control your eating and weight, but nothing has worked? Compulsive overeating, under-eating, food addiction, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, or over exercising —no matter your challenge with food or body image, you are welcome here at Overeaters Anonymous.
- We are for anyone struggling with food/eating or trying to determine if they have food issues.
- We believe compulsive eating is a disease like alcoholism is a disease.
- Our life-changing approach is physical, emotional, and spiritual, and based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
- We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively.
- There are no dues or fees for members.
