WHAT IS FOOD ADDICTS ANONYMOUS?
Food Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who are willing to recover from the disease of food addiction. We are not addicted to foods in general, but to specific substances, namely sugar, flour and wheat. FAA believes that the disease of food addiction is biochemical in nature and not a moral or character defect.
We have a solution that is not temporary, but a way of life that will allow us to heal from this disease. 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.
