Addiction A-Z

Food Addicts Anonymous (FAA)

Food Addicts Anonymous (FAA) is as 12-step organization that believes food addiction is a biochemical disorder occurring at a chemical level and that it cannot be cured. It can, however, be managed by abstaining from (eliminating or avoiding) addictive foods, adhering to a food plan (sound nutrition program) and working the FAA 12 steps. According to the program’s website, those who have struggled for years to eat healthy foods and maintain a healthy weight; those who binge by eating large quantities of starches and sweets; those who purge their bodies by extreme measures; and those who limit their food intake and have others telling them that they need to eat more may all be able to find comfort, support, value and hope in the FAA program.
