This Twelve Step program believes that food addiction can be managed by abstaining from (eliminating) addictive foods, following a program of sound nutrition (a food plan), and working the Twelve Steps of the program. After we have gone through a process of withdrawal from addictive foods many of us have experienced miraculous life-style changes. No dues or fees required for membership, but only a desire to stop eating addictive foods. Our primary purpose is to stay abstinent and help other food addicts to achieve abstinence. http://www.foodaddictsanonymous.org/, Find a Group in Your Area
