Recipes for 12 Steps Feb 29, 2008
Recipes and visual preparations add, plus care with portions. For this I recommend Overeaters Anonymous Very Low Carbohydrate Food Plan: Greysheet Recipes. This is a beautiful book. I bought it because I'm on the very low carb food plan. It has great recipes. I really like the protein and vegetable recipes. I can never think of enough things to do with vegetables. Now I know what other people are cooking. I'm glad to learn more about phone and in person meetings. I never knew where the term "greysheet" came from. I have wanted to learn more about it for a long time.
A Wonderful Source of Information May 26, 2007
Are you a compulsive overeater? Have you tried just about everything you can think of or get your hands on to stop bingeing or obsessing about food? Have you come to a point in your life where you can honestly say that you are powerless over food and need help from a Higher Power? Get this book!
Based on the Twelve Steps for Alcholics Anonymous, this book will help you understand each step and how it can help free you from the bonds of food addiction. Written in easy-to-read format with wording in a way that makes it seem like you're chatting with a close friend, this book is the book to help you release your grasps on an addiction that you can't simply overcome with "willpower."
This book is life altering if you are ready to recover Aug 23, 2004
I was shocked to see that there were actually negative reviews on this book. One of the reviews I read sounds like it was written for another book as the content in the review was not related to any of the people or subjects contained in this book. ... On to what I have to say about this book. This is positively one of the greatest books I have read for overeaters. This is not a diet book, but a healing tool, and a spiritual tool using the twelve steps. In many ways compulsive overeaters or binge eaters are like alcoholics. It is a compulsive disorder that has so little to do with food. We eat to "stuff" our pain, hurt, anger, fears, regrets, sorrows and disappointments. Using the tools in this book and going to Overeaters Anonymous I have been binge free for two months. I haven't had any sugar during that time. At one time these both really did seem impossible. But thanks to this wonderful book and the help of OA I am healing. If you have problems with binge eating or compulsive overeating I think this book is well worth the money and more.
Food is not alcohol Jul 17, 2000
I spent years going to OA meetings, diligently working the program and wondering why I was still a hopeless victim of food cravings.
If a child is running around screaming, having a tantrum, isn't that an indication that something is wrong? If your body is doing that, isn't something wrong with your body?
For a great book on eliminating food craving by eliminating the cause, read "Dr. Abravanel's Body Type Diet." It will set you free.
If you aren't well, read Dr. Hulda Clark's "The Cure for All Diseases". You will learn how to heal yourself. I overcame the chronic fatigue virus which I'd had for 8 years. Not only that, I have more energy and vitality than most people I know.
If you think, also, that you have deep psychological problems, read "Dianetics" by L. Ron Hubbard. I used to wonder what was wrong with me that my life never got better in spite of years in therapy and my earnest efforts. I used to wonder why so many of the people in OA meetings were the same insane people, unable to live fully, year after year. I read Dianetics and laughed! It was the missing link to why psychology doesn't work. My husband and I did Dianetics and I truly became saner, happier and freer.
Excellent 12 Step Companion Book Feb 21, 2000
Being in recovery in OA for 6 years and reading the OA and AA 12 & 12's NUMEROUS times, I was looing for something new and fresh to read. This book truly fit the bill. The author really breaks the steps down into many subcategories and delves into issues deeply. Not a substituute for the AA or OA 12 & 12 by any means, but a great "study aid" to the 12 steps.
