Do you feel elated when you eat sugar, starches, and/or other carbohydrates?

Do you eat to change the way you feel?

Have you been unable to manage your weight despite doctor’s orders?

Are you tired of endless yo-yo dieting?

Are you tired of trying to manage your weight by fasting, exercising or dieting?

Have you tried virtually every diet and weight loss program available?

Have you considered stomach surgery to manage weight?

Have you tried bingeing and purging with or without laxatives?

Do you have inordinate cravings for particular foods?

Do you turn to food to get you through stressful or emotional situations?

Have you used medication, diet pills, or supplements to manage weight?

Do you suffer from depression, anxiety or nervousness?

How Do I Get Started?

The best way to know whether or not GreySheet is for you is to attend at least six GSA meetings and see if you can identify with other members. Face-to-face, phone, and online meetings are available to members around the world.
