> Difficult question.. do i have an eating disorder... hmmm... well nothing official as such, but I do ahve a problem with food and am currenlty obese.. but am dieting and have lost about 22 lbs so far (in 2months).
My intuition suggested some element of anxiety in what you described.....call it my gut reaction to your gut reaction. Heh, heh.
>I am dieting sensibly though, under doctors watchful eye, but I don't eat eggs on this diet. (but when I do, I use a range of eggs that are epurely fed a vegetarian diet (well, the chickens are!) and contain omega 3's, I know that!!).
I wonder why you are exluding eggs....if you like them and can get good quality ones, like you describe.
>I eat tofu about 3 times a week, and a little low fat cheese, and lots of veggies and normally 2 peices fo fruit a day.
What you need to watch is alternating high glycemic and low glycemic foods. High glycemic ones are the ones which quickly convert to sugar (or contain sugar), while low glycemic ones are complex starchy foods. Your body will respond to that with what is called de novo lipogenesis, "new fat synthesis", turning carbs directly into saturated fat for storage.....not what you want. Fat, believe it or not, does not really affect this process.
> I have been suffering terrible nausea for 3 months and its gettingw orse.. retching over anything and everything, about 3 times an hour, and normally 4 or 5 retches within an attack, usually on the last retch I burp loudly!! About 1/4 of the time solids come back up. But I've noticed it is at its worst if I have eaten oily / fatty food.
Oily fatty food can stick around in the stomach longer. But the problem sounds more like a motility issue. Have you tried digestive enzymes? They're not very expensive, and they might just smooth things out. You didn't just one day start doing this, did you?
> I know its something I must see my doc about... but getting there si really hard for me at the moment!

No probs. Just don't push yourself too hard, 'kay?
