More Information

CEA-HOW is a worldwide twelve-step program for compulsive eaters. Members support one another by regularly attending meetings and abstaining from sugar, flour and excessive quanties of food.

The primary purpose of CEA-HOW is to carry its message to the compulsive eater who still suffers. Individual members share their experiences and a program of recovery with those who seek it. There are no dues or fees for membership in CEA-HOW, just a viable, successful solution for those who suffer from the addiction of compulsive eating.

CEA-HOW is not a diet plan. It is based on Alcholics Anonymous' 12 step program created by Bill W. and Dr. Bob in 1935. Today, CEA-HOW's World Service Office is located in Los Angeles, CA.

The goal of CEA-HOW is to help its members recover from compulsive eating. Members follow a food plan that includes protein, fruit, vegetables, and whole grains.

Members of CEA-HOW describe their experiences in the program as "miraculous" and "life changing".

Is it really that easy? Yes. Once you decide to try the program, you will get a sponsor. You will get a descriptive food plan booklet. Study it. Make a trip to the grocery store. Plan on making a visit to the fresh produce aisle. You may also want to pick up a food scale, to weigh your food.

Note, because of Coronavirus, face to face meetings are temporarily suspended. Please join us instead at an online meeting or phone bridge meeting.

Please note, if you are going to use Zoom on your mobile phone, be careful. Video conferencing uses a huge amount of data. If you are home and your mobile phone is connected to your home WiFi, that should not cost you anything extra. If you are away from home, using your mobile phone network, that can get expensive quickly. Check your mobile phone data plan. One hour conference could use up your entire month's data allotment. Note: you can avoid that expense by just calling in (no video) using the "click here in your mobile phone to call" link shown below.

Zero Out a Container

Learn how to use the tare weight zero on your scale. Many scales include a button that resets the zero of the scale display when an empty container is placed on the weighing platform. This makes it easy (and fast) to measure food for your meals, without having to calculate and subtract the weight of the bowl or container.

Easy Salad Mixing Bowl

These large bowls with snap on top make it very easy to mix salad dressing (or vinegar and oil) with lettuce for a salad meal. Its surprising to realize how much eight ounces of lettuce really is.

Frozen Fruit

Don't let fruit go to waste. Freeze it! This works great with seedless grapes, bananas or melon. You will want to prep the fruit by removing the grape stems, the banana peels or removing the rind from melon. Measure out the correct quantity for a daily serving. Freeze the serving in a plastic storage container or sealable plastic baggie. This makes breakfast easy and delicious!
