The *NEW* Basic Overcoming Overeating Yahoo email list (now managed by The National Center for Overcoming Overeating) provides an ongoing online support group for people who are using the OO approach to cure their compulsive eating and end body hatred and dieting. It is a great opportunity for discussion about how to implement these principles in our everyday lives and work towards achieving self-acceptance. It is also a way to be plugged into information about events and developments in the anti-dieting movement—in particular, The Women's Campaign to End Body Hatred and Dieting.
NOTE: This list is about working the Overcoming Overeating approach specifically as outlined in the books Overcoming Overeating and When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter. If you have not begun to read these books and you are not applying the approach as outlined in the books, then this list is not for you!

**(Now managed by The National Center for Overcoming Overeating!)**
This Yahoo group is for anyone who is actively using the Overcoming Overeating non-diet tools presented in the book When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies (Hirschmann/Munter). The list member is less frequently using food as a primary source of self-soothing and is ready to focus on the emotional triggers that lead to overeating and the painful emotions and life experiences that brought us to overeating as our coping mechanism. Beginners are welcome to lurk or participate in the discussions but should continue participating in the Basic OO Email Group to get support while they learn and practice the tools of recognizing stomach hunger and mouth hunger, legalizing, stocking up, food bags, mirror work, etc. Advanced group members are also urged to remain in the basic group to support, encourage, and inspire those undertaking the difficult task of ending their overeating.
