Literature order question
I ordered my literature on Sunday and still haven't received it. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for shipping? I really want to start my full abstinence on Monday but need the literature to prepare this weekend for next week. Any help would be appreciated!!
On another topic - has anyone been able to get their family to eat better and help their health as well? My daughter is allergic to soy and when I start cooking instead of buying pre-made or ready to cook meals. She is looking forward to eating and not getting sick. Thanks again to all for your input, advice and encouragement!!!
The literature doesn't usually take too, too long to get there. I've always had my orders within a week or so.
You don't actually need the literature to get started, though. The suggested FAA food plan is on the FAA website:
You can plan and write down your menu. I always do mine at night for the next day. That way I can take anything out of the freezer that needs to be defrosted, and my husband then puts it in the fridge the next morning when he gets up at 5:30am. I also report & commit my food to my sponsor. If you don't have a sponsor yet, you could ask someone if they'd "take your food" for you. Some people are willing to do that by email or phone. Reporting and committing what I'm going to eat to my sponsor has helped me to be accountable, and as a food addict, that's a good thing... very necessary!
After I had been on the food plan for a few months, my husband saw the good changes in me and decided to try the food plan himself. He has been abstinent for over a year now, and he's not even a food addict! But he does follow the plan and doesn't eat off plan. What a difference I saw in him right away! For both of us, we've become nicer people, more considerate and gentle. I do love those kinds of changes! I've heard of many members whose family members eat partially according to the food plan, and that's good too. I'm sure your daughter will like eating this new way... it really is an awesome way to eat~ I'm thoroughly convinced of that.
If you have any questions on the food plan, please come and post so someone can get an answer to you. Good luck, Jenn!
PDF format literature for immediate download
The literature is also available in PDF format for immediate download for about half price. I downloaded much of it to have it handy on my computer. I've heard that it downloads to the handhelds also. It was quick and easy.
I enjoy the hard copies also and I usually have my order in about a week (or less). Might want to check with the office if you feel you have waited long enough for it to have arrived.
It is not as slow right now the literature will be going out by the end of August as our convention is coming up in September in Ohio. Like mentioned you can read online the food plan, our tools, and much more.. This message board has much information. You can ask someone to take your food via the phone or email to get you started.. Take some phone numbers after a meeting or after a online meeting which is saturday at 11:am est and Sunday at 1pm est.. Go to the website and phone numbers are there for the meetings, and the faa loop is good for support.. Ask any questions... Keep Coming Back.
