With my OCD, it causes an ED in which things to me become “infected” and inedible. I’ve lost a lot of weight (fluctuating) and I feel i’ll all of the time. Is there any healthy eating habits that could help keep my mind away so I can eat more?

      If you begin a systemic and programmed response to eating you will slowly lessen your anxiety about eating foods you feel might be infected. Start by forcing yourself to eat those foods and acknowledging your anxiety level. You want to expose yourself little by little. Each time your anxiety will lower.

        @phidippus absolutely agree. I also just switched my brain from eating to be a pleasurable experience to be a necessity in order to live; meaning that it doesn't matter if I'm enjoying the food or I even want it, I need it to survive.

      Have you thought about not ordering extra salt and extra pickles on everything?
