There is a solution to Compulsive Eating: OA

If you’re like us, and you struggle with food, obsess over your weight, or battle with your imagined body imperfections, then you might be a compulsive eater – and there is a solution!

In Overeaters Anonymous, we have found the solution to our compulsive eating by attending OA meetings, getting a sponsor, and by working the Twelve Steps of recovery. In combination with literature focused on our problems with food and compulsive food behaviors, we use what is referred to as the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous, as our basic textbook for Twelve Step recovery.

Our sponsors, as well as our friends in the program, help us to understand and accept that we have a common disease: the disease of compulsive eating. Borrowing from the Big Book chapter entitled, “The Doctor’s Opinion,” we come to understand that this disease of compulsive eating manifests as an allergy (to certain triggering foods/food behaviors), combined with a mental obsession (the phenomenon of craving). And we take certain steps to treat this disease one day at a time.

Do you wonder if you might, indeed, suffer with the disease of compulsive eating? Here is a presentation that might help you to better understand the nature of our disease, as well as the solution to our common problem – click here!

If you’re ready to learn how you can recover from this debilitating, progressive, and ultimately fatal disease, then we are here to help. Call us today at (408) 940-6278 or send email to
