Food Addicts Anonymous is an organization that considers food addiction to be a biochemical disorder that occurs at a cellular level and therefore cannot be cured by willpower or by therapy alone.
FAA feels that food addiction is not a moral or character issue. This Twelve- Step program believes that food addiction can be managed by abstaining from (eliminating) known addictive foods, following a program of sound nutrition (a food plan), and working the twelve steps of the program.
After participants have gone through a process of withdrawal from addictive foods many have experienced miraculous lifestyle changes.
FAA is self-supporting through our own contributions. There are no dues or fees required for membership, but only a desire to stop eating addictive foods. The group is not affiliated with any commercial diet or weight loss programs, treatment facilities or religious organizations. They neither endorse nor oppose any causes.
The primary purpose of FAA is to stay abstinent and help other food addicts to achieve abstinence.
