Information about food and nutrition is not hard to find in numerous publications or online. We have all learned the basics of healthy eating as school children. Yet many people have a hard time controlling the way they eat. They see temptation everywhere.
As a result, they often struggle with being severely overweight. Others find themselves underweight, bulimic and obsessed with food or weight. They may feel hopeless and helpless, after many unsuccessful attempts to gain control of their issues with eating.
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) offers both help and hope. To learn about this program, based on the Twelve Steps of Recovery of AA, all are welcome to attend a public information meeting, including those who are concerned about their own eating behavior or that of someone else.
The free information session will be held Monday, October 10 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Church of the Holy Apostles, located at 1225 W. Grand Parkway S. (Hwy. 99), Katy TX 77494. The session will include speakers who will share their stories of recovery from eating addictively through the FA program as well as information about FA meetings in the Greater Houston area.
Free literature will be available, including the 20 questions that help identify the problem of food addiction. For instance, do you think about food or your weight constantly? Do you find yourself attempting one diet or food plan after another, with no lasting success?
When the answer is yes, the resources and FA program may provide the help that is needed for those who have tried any number of solutions to their problems with food, including years of diets or exercise. FA provides a long-term solution to maintaining a healthy weight and freedom from obsession with food that focuses on physical, mental and spiritual recovery.
