Secrets of Success

Overeaters Anonymous




Through the 12-Step program of OA, I learned that I had a disease, and that will-power and self-esteem did not help me stop eating compulsively. Through working this program and defining my own meal plan, I have lost weight, but more important regained my emotional and spiritual balance.

More Information:, there are face-to-face, phone and online meetings. There are no weigh-ins, no fees, no diets, and no shame. You do not have to believe in God or belong to any religion to join. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively.
