New Radio Show Educates the Public on Compulsive Eating
(RIO RANCHO, N.M.) –Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is launching a 13-week radio show to help listeners better understand compulsive eating and recovery. The program, Sound Bites from Overeaters Anonymous—A 12-Step Solution to Compulsive Eating, is a weekly, one-hour program that will be broadcast online on Voice America beginning October 17 and running through January 9, 2013.
Built on a twelve-step program patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous, OA offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating issues using a three-fold approach that addresses individual physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.“Many people think everyone in OA is morbidly obese. They are surprised to learn that in OA, you’ll find members who are obese, overweight, average weight, underweight, still maintaining some control over or totally unable to control their eating behaviors,” said Naomi Lippel, Managing Director for Overeaters Anonymous. “Sound Bites from Overeaters Anonymous enables us to share first-hand the personal struggles of compulsive eaters, and the strength, hope and recovery they found using OA’s twelve step program.”
The program will address topics that include:
- How and why a 12-step program can work for compulsive eating
- How OA’s Plan of Eating is different than a diet
- The 9 Tools of Overeaters Anonymous
- Keeping your eating sane during the holiday season
- 100+ Pounds to lose—Is there hope for me in OA?
- The three levels of recovery from compulsive eating
- What to expect at an OA meeting
- In All Our Affairs—How recovery in OA can improve every aspect of your life
- New year’s resolutions—what can you do differently this time?
And a live call-in show that will answer listener’s questions about Overeaters Anonymous.
Sound Bites from Overeaters Anonymous can be found on Voice America starting October 10 by visiting www.voiceamerica.com and searching for “Overeaters Anonymous.”
