I was watching that MTV True Life: I have OCD thing today and it got me wondering.

I'm pretty sure this has been asked before, but do you think that people with OCD are more likely to develope and eating disorder or vise versa? I've had OCD since I was very little, but it wasn't always an issue that was part of my eating problems. It didn't really start till I was older and I would only eat food if it looked a certain way. Example: any meat product i ate had to be a perfect square and I woould only eat it if it was smack in the middle of my plate. Or things had to be lined up on my plate or else I didn't feel like I was ready to eat it.

So do you people with OCD or OCD tendencies feel that your need for order and control ended up affecting your eating?
