Default Overwhelming myself with healthy lifestyle changes.

I'm trying to eat good, workout, cut back on fast food. But I overwhelm myself, the thing is I tend to just go all out cold turkey and drop all addictions and everything that I was used to before I don't know if this is a symptom of OCD or something. How do I make a healthy lifestyle change without overwhelming myself and feeling burned out???

Moderation. Allow yourself 1 day per week to cheat a little (emphasis on "a little").

Also, maybe you could find some healthy activities and/or foods that you consider fun, e.g., chocolate egg creams.

I have a similar problem. When I try to eat less and healthier and to exercise more, I end up with a cold or sore throat.

yes, dont exhaust yourself, have one cheat day in a week minimum and try to change your workout regularly to avoid fatigue!
