    I've noticed for a while now that anytime I overeat / indulge in a treat, I want to make myself sick. I never actually force myself to throw up, but I keep telling myself that I'll feel better if I throw it up and feel really guilty when I talk myself out of it... Is this normal ?

    You can either go to you GP and tell them what youve told us and they can take it from there.
    You might wnat to consider telling your mum.

    Why do you eat to that point where you feel sick? Not sure if this is signs leading to an eating disorder I know a girl who thought chewing and spitting was nothing but it lead to her having a full blown eating disorder and now pukes her food out even if she doesn't feel full.

    See a professional before the mind tricks gets worse.

    It could be anything... Sometimes rich foods like cake... Sometimes just dinner or lunch. Whenever I feel full, I feel guilty :/

    Thanks for the advice and links! I'll probably contact the charity. My family wouldn't really understand if I told them.

    As i said there are message boards as well, so you can just read. The guides are very comprehensive, but you have to read them. the helplines should help you though and dont forget they are used to getting calls like yours all the time.

    If you have acid reflux then eating too quickly and a large meal can make you throw up therefore I would usually recommend eating a smaller lunch but eat more regularly. However this doesn't sound like acid reflux so I would seek help
