Fad Free

In the July 2019 issue, I read an OA slogan that was new to me “Eat light and feel right; Eat right and feel light!” Really?! Do we need a slogan about food in OA? Whatever happened to the basic idea that “we are not a ‘diet club?’” (Overeaters Anonymous, Third Edition, p. 2). What impression will this new slogan make on newcomers who have tried every food-based “solution” to their addiction and have become demoralized by them? Isn’t OA a spiritual program?
