Especially for Newcomers

If you can’t stop thinking about food...

If you’ve tried everything and nothing works...

If your eating interferes with your work and home life...

If you’re miserable no matter what size you are...

You’re in the right place.

One meal at a time.

Don’t worry about whether you can do GreySheet for the rest of your life—or even the rest of the week.

All you have to do is make it to your next weighed and measured meal without eating. 

If you go to bed abstinent, it’s a successful day.

Don’t quit before the miracle.

I thought I would never stop eating compulsively. I was in constant fear and darkness and felt alone. 

I gave up, and didn’t know what else I could do. So I prayed for an answer I could not imagine.

Then I found GSA. It was like entering a light-filled doorway after being in the dark for so long.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click the question to expand the answer.

The only requirement for membership in GreySheeters Anonymous is the desire to stop eating compulsively. You do not have to fill out an enrollment form or pay a fee before you can start, and you do not have to order any special supplements or meal substitutes. Most of our short-form literature is available to download and print for free. 

Abstinent food is available at ordinary supermarkets, though you will notice that fresh proteins, fruits and vegetables cost more than the high-starch processed foods most of us eat before coming to GSA. 

Each group does ask for voluntary contributions to cover expenses like renting a meeting room or using a webconferencing service. Members who have had success in the program and are financially able to do so are encouraged to contribute, but never forced to.
