What does OBCD mean on social media?


Social media users discussing overeating and "the American diet" may shorten obesity to OBCD. While this abbreviation has been around since 2008, it went viral on TikTok in 2022, after being clipped from a popular mukbang video.

In a YouTube video posted August 5, 2022, popular mukbanger Nikocado Avocado showed off the very-organized contents of his food pantry. When Avocado said he kind of has OCD, his husband (who was holding the camera) fired back with "You mean OBCD?" TikToker kltbii clipped this portion of the video and shared it to TikTok, where it quickly racked up millions of views.

On TikTok, you're most likely to see OBCD used in videos riffing on Avocado and his husband's original exchange. On other platforms, OBCD is used much more straightforwardly, to replace the word obesity in discussions of a person's (or a society's) weight.
