Yellow vomit: Sounds like you may have vomited up some bile. Bile is the fluid stored in the gallbladder that helps the body digest fats. It is a very bitter tasting substance. If it doesn't happen again - probably nothing to worry about. If it occurs again you might want to get it checked out with a routine visit to your doctor.

Your sick but normal: Yellow is the normal color or "clearish " with less bile if your pyloric valve is competent - that is no food in your stomach at the time of vomiting totally normal. I like that better than dry heaving causes from viral - your sick to many many other etiologies - need other symptoms to diagnose.

Most efficient?: Self-induced emesis is generally not healthy. Why do you need instructions about how to make yourself vomit? Do you have a bad relationship with food? Are you trying to lose weight?
