It could be a psychological reason why you are vomiting after eating. Sometimes people can even gag when visiting the dentist or when having to swallow pills. Sometimes the mere smell of a certain food or even a strong perfume can make a person want to throw up. A more severe type of psychological vomiting after eating is when it is done on purpose. This is called bulimia. There could be any number of psychological reasons why a person would want to vomit on purpose.

You could also be experiencing a physiological reason why you are vomiting after eating. There are certain questions that have to be asked here for a more probing answer.
1.       Does your tummy have a burning pain between the belly button and the breastbone? You could have gastritis or a peptic ulcer.
2.       Do your eyes or skin have a yellowish discoloration and/or is your urine dark along with flu symptoms? You could have hepatitis.
3.       Is there pain in your tummy on the right lower side or the middle? You could have a bowel obstruction or even appendicitis. Appendicitis is very serious and must be seen to right away.
4.       Have you got a stiff neck or headache and are your eyes hurting in a normal light? You could have meningitis. This is also very serious and could result in death. If in any doubt, see your doctor straight away.
5.       Is there pain in your upper right abdomen? Does the pain get worse after greasy food? You could have gallstones or a gallbladder infection or even inflammation of your pancreas.
6.       Did your vomit have blood in it? This could be from a bleeding ulcer.
7.       Does your mouth or throat have a bitter taste after eating? Do you feel a burning sensation in your chest? You could have heartburn.

Medicines and supplements could also be a cause of vomiting after eating. You could also be pregnant. Consult your doctor to set your mind at ease.

It could be something as common to as a stomach flu
I have some suggestions
first don’t eat anything
start small drink some clear liquids like water or juice
only sips at a time
and since you throw up a lot you lose a lot of sodium and potassium
so be sure to have some sodium and potassium after
if you can drink without vomiting more
I suggest you replace it with minerals of some sort
DO NOT DRINK MILK
after awhile you can try some crakers and soft stuff
bits at a time then move on to bigger stuff
before you no it you would feel better in no time haha

Most areas have some free clinics.  Check with some churches or social departments in your area.  Also teaching hospitals connected with universities may offer some help.
 
The problem may be simple or it could be serious.  It could also be life threatening without treatment.

Good Answer, but Gatorade is heathly at times but if you drink it all day every day it's bad for you, They persuade you it's "GOOD" for you but it's really not. So crackers and ginger ale is the best choice. Sprite is also good too.

I had the same thing and I am barely recovering I still throw up when I'm too excited or anxious I went to the clinic and the doctor told me to go to the pharmacy and have a special antibiotic made.

Could be from overeating. I used to tell myself that I really don't like meat all that much and when I would eat a little my body would automatically throw my food up, kind of like syching myself out. Could be pregnancy, could be that the food your eating is spoiled and reacting with your stomach, could be that you have a diet problem that requires you to follow a certain diet. All in all I would suggest finding a free clinic and going in.
