New Mexico, U.S.A. — 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 17and 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:
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.”
