Item description for Overeaters Anonymous Very Low Carbohydrate Food Plan: Greysheet Recipes by Member of OA & Greysheeter's Anonymous Anonymous Members of Greysheet Recipes...
Book Description Both Overeaters Anonymous, Inc. and Greysheeters Anonymous Inc. are 12 Step Recovery groups, patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous, to help members deal with addiction, food issues, compulsive overeating, and eating disorders. This book provides a new Forward explaining the history of the "Greysheet" and it's relationship to Overeaters Anonymous Inc. Overeaters Anonymous has suggested using a variety of food plans over the years, including "the original Greysheet" very low carbohydrate food plan, copyrighted by OA in 1972, Rev. 1974. The "Greysheet" was printed on grey paper - hence the name "Greysheet.". While Overeaters Anonymous Inc. now publishes "The Dignity of Choice Sample Plans of Eating," as official literature, including a Very Low Carbohydrate Food Plan, and no longer publishes or offers the "Greysheet" as official OA literature, the interest in the "Greysheet" remains. Readers will find complete information about the 12-Step Recovery Group, Greysheeters Anonymous, based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous Inc., and the "Greysheet" Food Plan and Method, a very low carb, high protein food plan, no breads, flour products, only products that list sugar at least fifth on the label, and quantities suggested in weighed and measured amounts. The Greysheet Recipes included in this edition are contributed by members of firstname.lastname@example.org , an online forum, and conform to "the original Greysheet" very low carb food plan, copyrighted by OA 1972, Rev. 1974. The discussion group is for members to post and discuss recipes that meet the requirements of the food on the Greysheet Food Plan. While this edition does not contain a copy of "the original Greysheet" Food Plan, you can obtain a copy of the Greysheet by contacting a member of one of the Greysheet support groups through one of the links offered in the book. The recipes are published with the advisory that members of OA and Greysheeters Anonymous consult their Sponsors about what is abstinent. You can find links to both OA and Greysheeters Anonymous resources in this edition, and more about some of the specialty foods like soynut butter, soy products, digital scales for weighing and measuring food amounts, and literature on recovery from compulsive overeating. "For The Original Overeaters Anonymous Very Low Carbohydrate Food Plan: Greysheet Recipes," is neither endorsed nor sponsored by Overeaters Anonymous or Greysheeters Anonymous.

Reviews - What do customers think about Overeaters Anonymous Very Low Carbohydrate Food Plan: Greysheet Recipes?
Great recipes; chaotic format. Aug 2, 2008
While offering a helpful assortment of low carbohydrate recipes, the layout of the information is chaotic and therefore not user friendly. The little diamonds that separate the ingredients are sometimes misplaced, leaving a list to include something like: 1 cup chopped; chicken. There are two identical recipes for boiled cabbage, and the subtitle for the ingredient list is done with such a flourish that it appears to be the start of a recipe when it is actually the middle. The most frustrating problem is the "Index" which is nothing more than an expanded table of contents. For instance you will not find a recipe for beef vegetable stew under stew, or beef, or even vegetables. I stumbled across it under the "Cooked Vegetables with Protein" section (Homemade Beef Vegetable Stew) alphabetically in the "H" section because of the first word in the title. In between these layout flaws though, are some great recipes. Just be prepared to spend more time finding them and figuring them out than actually preparing them!
Beautiful book Feb 20, 2008
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.
