What is GreySheet Abstinence?

GreySheet abstinence is defined as:

This definition is included in our GSA Group Purpose "We require that our meeting leaders be abstinent for at least three months on the GreySheet, which we define as three weighed and measured meals a day from the GreySheet with nothing in between but black coffee, diet soda, or water."

What is the GreySheet Food Plan?

The GreySheet food plan (frequently referred to simply as "The GreySheet") is a low-carbohydrate food plan, originally published in 1972. In 2008 GreySheeters Anonymous World Services purchased the copyright to the GreySheet food plan from OA and republished it. The GreySheet itself says:

For carbohydrate-sensitive people, manmade sugars and starches create a craving for more of the same. Therefore, these foods cannot be eaten at all! This plan provides for complete abstinence from man-made sugars and starches and from any foods not shown on the food portions list.
