How to Get Started in FA


You don't need to feel hopeless about food and dieting. This Digital Newcomer Packet explains the solution of FA.

Attend an FA meeting

The best way to learn about FA is to attend a meeting where you can speak to a greeter, find a sponsor, pick up literature, and hear experiences of recovering food addicts. Find FA meetings here.

Call a greeter

If you would like to talk to an FA member, you can get a copy of the FA Greeter List here. Everyone on that list is eager to answer your questions about FA.

Read FA literature

The pamphlet, Food Addiction and the FA Solution: for anyone who wants to know more, describes the illness of food addiction and the solution offered by FA. Many other helpful FA pamphlets are available to read online.

You can also read the first chapter of the FA Book, Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. The softcover, large print, eBook, and audiobook versions are available for purchase.

Listen to stories of recovery from food addiction

Dozens of member's stories are available for free on the FA Podcast. Listen to them on our website, or by searching for "Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous" wherever you get your podcasts.

Find a sponsor

If you are ready to start the FA program, you’ll need a sponsor. You can find a sponsor at an FA meeting. Or call someone on the FA Sponsor List. Everyone on the list is either available to sponsor or committed to helping you find a sponsor.

Create a profile

Stay up to date with FA news by creating a profile on the FA website. You can sign up to receive general announcements from FA, as well as the quarterly newsletter Gratitude in Action.

FA is free and open to all who want to stop eating addictively.
