Hi everyone, i've been lifting for a while now, i'm not new to the sport.(i'm new to the forum though =) .
I was eating a lot, just like i needed to gain weight and i was gaining about a pound in a week or two.
I was doing fine, but then one night i got very full and threw up, and i haven't been able to eat as much ever since. Every time i eat food or drink a shake, my mind instantly thinks of throwing up ( even if i eat very little ) and my mind just takes over, and most of the times i throw up cuz i cant get my mind of it. I've tried eating smaller portions but i still throw sometimes. I cant eat as i used to.
I had this same problem a year ago, i just dont know what to do. it's a horrible feeling, seeing all the calories i took in going to waste
Thank you for reading, any suggestions would be apriciated .
I have no better advice than to say "man up." Maybe visualize how hard all of us would laugh at you if you had to upchuck after one shake, I mean that seriously not as a joke. It's sad but its like I see repeated on this forum all the time, "My protien shake tastes nasty what can I do!?" (and I will admit I have thought that and I have been like I should look for a better tasting shake but then I read these boards) the response never fails to be, "It's not sposed to taste good its sposed to make your huge. Man up and chug that ***t."
Best advice I got! But I am sure someone has better
This is a psychological problem and you're going to have to get over it. Mind over body. If you need to, perhaps seek professional help. And in the end, the only person that can get you out of this mindset is YOU. Good luck.

Yes notice what Arnie said in my sig, words to live by!
it's not really about the taste, i'm over that stage, i know that i have to eat s$#t to get huge, but the problem is actually holding that food inside
Yes I think maybe an ulcer could make you puke, but I think you would notice associated pain rather than just puking.
