Default Anyone obsess over food?

Hey everyone, newbie here. I was diagnosed a while back with OCD. I never believed my doctor because of the things you typically see on TV (constant washing of hands, walking back and forth, etc) I dont have a fixation on those things much, but ive been nonchalant about finding out more of this disorder because im worried if I read more on it then I will start to feel like that...do I make sense? Is that a hypochondriac? IDK. But anyways...I just wanted to ask if anyone else obsesses over food. I know many people suffer from eating disorders, but for me, its not that I starve myself, its just that I know food is around me...and ive gotta have it, even if im not hungry, just to have a sound mind for the time being. Sometimes I see commercials on TV about McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and I know they have food, and im not even hungry, nor am I a fast food junkie, but I know they have it, and I need to get it. Sorta like a pack rat...but with food. Ive gained so much weight from this. Anyone feel this way?

PS: This week im obsessing over a buying a boat (im not the richest person in the world, nor do I even have a main use for one) but i want a boat with a little cute flag. Hehe. this OCD is quite a riot.

It probably is OCD, though I wish I had OCD over boat buying, it sure beats worrying about being racist/suicidal/a pedophile. (Not to trivialize your problem, and I hope you are feeling better).

Well, my OCD mostly stems from hypochondria. So, I'm constantly worrying about my health. I sometimes obsess over food-related issues, but not like the one you're suffering from.

I will become paranoid that something I ate was poisoned or just rotten...and I'll get sick. Possibly even die. Yeah, really out there things...but the fears/thoughts can't be helped. I'm sure you understand that, heh.

Anyway, I'm sorry that I can't help you on your problem. I hope things get better for you.

Almost called it today.
Turned to face the void.
Numb with the suffering and the question,
"Why am I...?"
So many times I've tried and failed to gather my courage,
reach again for that nail.
Life's been like dragging feet through sand,
and never finding my promised land.


God the Holy Ghost is calling out to embrace you. I want you to reach deep into your hearts and your pocketbooks and take his hand.

This does happen with me. I think about coffee and get anxious until I jump in the car and get it! Commercials for food definitely should be avoided if you don't want to give in to these temptations.

I overeat but I don't think it's OCD. I think it's just an eating disorder. Especially sweets...it's like I eat them like I'm never going to eat another sweet in my life. I don't get it, it's really weird. Maybe it is OCD, I don't know.
