You are not alone

Whether you are an overeater, undereater, bulimic, anorexic or have any problem with foodwe welcome you.

Is Overeaters Anonymous for you?

Only you can decide that question. No  one else can make this decision for you. We who are now in Overeaters Anonymous have found a way of life which enables us to live without the  need for excess food. We believe that compulsive overeating is  a progressive illness, one that, like alcoholism and some other  illnesses, can be arrested. Remember, there is no shame in admitting  you have a problem;  the most important thing is to do something  about it.

Are You a Compulsive Overeater?

1.   Do you eat when you’re not hungry?

2.   Do you go on eating binges for no apparent reason?

3.   Do you have feelings of guilt and remorse after overeating?

4.   Do you give too much time and thought to food?

5.   Do you look forward with pleasure and anticipation to the time when you can eat alone?

6.   Do you plan these secret binges ahead of time?

7.   Do you eat sensibly before others and make up for it alone?

8.   Is your weight affecting the way you live your life?

9.   Have you tried to diet for a week (or longer), only to fall short of your goal?

10. Do you resent others telling you to “use a little willpower” to stop overeating?

11. Despite evidence to the contrary, have you continued to assert that you can diet “on your own” whenever you wish?

12. Do you crave to eat at a definite time, day or night, other than mealtime?

13. Do you eat to escape from worries or trouble?

14. Have you ever been treated for obesity or a food-related condition?

15. Does your eating behavior make you or others unhappy?

Have you answered yes to three or more of these questions? If so, it is probable that you have or are well on your way to having a compulsive overeating problem. We have found that the way to arrest this progressive disease is to practice the Twelve Step recovery program of  Overeaters Anonymous.
