Difficulty Dialing In?

There has been some trouble with a few major carriers breaking their own FCC license agreements and blocking free conference calling. More info here. Click here if you would like to help stop this interference with free trade and our ability to help those with eating disorders whose carriers are breaking FCC (and possibly NAFTA) law. We will be changing our conference number soon and will place the new one here in such a way that it cannot easily be discovered by the law-breakers.

You can email us if you have issues calling in or have any other inquiries. Just use this email without the underscore characters: inquiries_@_eatingdisorderphonemeetings_._org. We added the underscores ("_") to keep robots from scraping our email address from the web and selling it to junk emailers.

What is E.D.A?

Eating Disorders Anonymous is a voluntary fellowship of individuals who meet together to share solutions for and recovery from eating disorders. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from an eating disorder.

Our primary purpose is to recover from our eating disorders and to carry this message of recovery to others with eating disorders. E.D.A. has adopted a policy of "cooperation but not affiliation" with other organizations and professionals concerned with the problem of eating disorders. E.D.A., as such, has no opinion on outside issues and neither endorses nor opposes any outside causes. E.D.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Each E.D.A. group is fully self‐supporting through voluntary contribution of its members. There are no dues or fees for membership.

How E.D.A. Members Maintain Recovery and Balance

Recovery is maintained by:

What E.D.A. Does Not Do

In E.D.A. we focus on the solution, not the problem. We are not a "diet and calories club." EDA endorses sound nutrition and discourages any form of rigidity around food. Food is nourishment for mind, soul and body. Balance is our goal.

In meetings, we discuss our disordered thinking that we might also discuss how to work a solution. Diets and weight management techniques do not solve our thinking problem. Because of our competitive natures, we discourage discussion of numbers (weight, calories, time spent exercising, et cetera).
