FA Book Information
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous
- What is a food addict?
- How can anyone be addicted to food?
If you are struggling with food or weight, you may say to yourself, “Even if I lose control sometimes, I’m no addict.” Yet, there’s something to the two words that makes you pause. We wrote this book for you and for people who work with or are in relationship with those who have trouble controlling the way they eat. Doctors and nurses, psychotherapists, social workers, employers, family members, and others will find it useful.
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous describes the possibility of long-term, continuous recovery from food addiction offered by Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA), a program based on the Twelve Steps pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous. The book begins with a description of the experience of food addiction and its symptoms, which can include obesity, extreme thinness, bulimia, exercise compulsion, or a normal weight maintained at the expense of debilitating obsession. Most of the book consists of individual accounts of food addiction and FA recovery, some from members with over thirty years of sustained, one-day-at-a-time success. The volume includes a doctor’s perspective, a chapter for family and friends, and a discussion of each of the Twelve Steps.
