What is Eating Disorders Anonymous?

Brief Description

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).
