Our PRIMARY PURPOSE is to stay abstinent from the addictive substances of sugar, flour, and wheat and to help others to do the same.

ABSTINENCE from sugar, flour, and wheat is the foundation of this program of recovery. Members of Recovery from Food Addiction believe that abstinence from sugar, flour, and wheat is the most important thing in our lives; for without abstinence we do not have a life. Food Addiction: The Body Knows by Kay Sheppard is approved literature. The recommended food plan is in this book.

“We do not list weight loss among the goals of recovery although it is a reasonable expectation. As weight gain was a symptom of the disease, weight loss is a symptom of recovery.” p.139 from Food Addiction: The Body Knows by Kay Sheppard.

Always check with your doctor before starting any food plan.

We believe we eat because of a physical craving; that we have an addiction to certain foods. The addictive substances set up an insatiable craving within our bodies. The only relief from the craving is entire abstinence from these foods.

We believe that we do not eat because of our problems; however, if we do not keep in a fit spiritual condition by working the 12 steps of this program, we believe we are in danger returning to the food.
