Avoiding certain kinds of foods and maintaining a nutrient-rich dietary regimen consisting of whole foods can curb symptoms of OCD. The foods to avoid include: • Sugary Foods: Consuming foods with added sugars, like candy and soda can elevate the blood glucose levels, leading to a temporary high. This stimulation may trigger OCD in some people and once their blood sugar levels drop, they may feel irritable or depressed. • Caffeinated Foods: It is necessary to limit caffeine intake since it triggers increased anxiety owing to the stimulating effects on the nervous system. • Alcohol: Alcohol is a depressant and might relieve OCD symptoms for some time. But in the long run, the problem grows worse and triggers panic attacks and OCD behavior.
