Is this OCD? I need help

I'm not really knowledgeable on OCD's or anything, but I think I might have one. All I think about is food - what and when I will eat. I dont have strong hunger signals, so I have to time my meals and snacks out. It's like I'm obsessed with nutrition - I'm always trying to think of the healthiest thing I can eat and constantly changing my mind about what I will eat. This is what I think about probably 85-90% of the time. It keeps me up at night and it is driving me absolutely crazy. Whats wrong with me?

Re: Is this OCD? I need help

That is exactly what I have right now, and I had it before, too. It did get better. I think it's my fault that it's going strong again, as I decided to start eating healthy and then, almost subconsciously, planning my meals/counting calories. But when I first had this, I thought it would NEVER go away. But it did, and it did get better. But yes, I think the constant obsessing is infact OCD. I do have OCD, other than just the food thing, so my guess is it's another OCD symptom. Maybe talk to your doctor. I went on antidepressants, and they did help a lot. Hope I helped!
