    a year or so i was told I had possibly irritable bowel syndrome and its all having a balanced diet.... there's not much to do.
    and i'm fine with it...
    I've always been pretty good with food as in I eat everything veg fish fruit carbs anything but the thing is i cant eat normal portions, I'll just end up feeling horribly sick and I'll just vomit its always been like that since i was a kid its nothing phycological i dont have any trouble.so when i went to see the docter was like ur 10 kg off ur bmi and i told her i have trouble eating full meals in one go....now she kinda thinks i have some sort of eating promblem which i dont.....now i dont know if
    she's trying to scare me or not but she said its REALLY BAD for me?

    If you can't eat full meals, just eat 6 small meals throughout the day. I can't eat too much at once either.

    If you are vomiting non-deliberately on a regular basis you should probably get things checked out just to make sure you're okay and don't have a sensitivity/ allergy or any other issues (if it were deliberately it'd be a different direction of help you need).
    It is quite common for teens to get some level of eating issues so I can see why they think it. Might help if you could bring a parent along just to confirm that it's a long term thing for you.

    Otherwise try IBS tips like not eating foods that are too hot, eating little and often, using peppermint tablets/ sweets/ tea if you get pains, taking a food diary to help you notice and avoid problem foods etc.
    I had difficulties eating much when I was younger, but did grow out of it and now I can eat proper portions.

    Hope that helps a bit. Good luck
