You are not alone anymore!
No matter what your problem with food — compulsive overeating, under-eating, food addiction, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, or overexercising — we have a solution.
Are you a compulsive eater? Now that you have found Overeaters Anonymous, you may want to make sure our program is right for you. Many of us have found it useful to answer a few questions to help determine if we have a problem with compulsive eating. Take this anonymous quiz on the main Overeaters Anonymous website.

Overeaters Anonymous is not just about weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, obesity or diets. The OA program offers physical, emotional and spiritual recovery for those who suffer from compulsive eating. Members find recovery on all three levels by following a Twelve-Step program patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous.
Members who recover through the Twelve Steps find that yoyo dieting is a thing of the past. They no longer wish to return to eating compulsively.
