This is called Pica : In certain populations or cultures it is actually fairly common in children and women - especially in pregnancy. It may reflect a mineral deficiency and is only diagnosed if it lasts over a month. Since it can lead to poisoning, it is good to get effective behavioral control over it.

Anxiety disorder?: Although I do not think you have an eating disorder based on your symptoms, it does sound as though you may have some kind of anxiety disorder associated with eating. I think seeing your primary care doctor is a good initial step. Depending on what he thinks, he may refer you to a counselor or try medication. If this is been going on a while, do not delay getting treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Meat: Well, it may be that you cannot meats either. Perhaps, there are certain kinds of meat you cannot digest well like red meat, but you may do better with chicken, say. Also, you may choose to avoid fried meat but go with baked, say. Also, grinding meat may digest better than meat pieces. ...Read more

I always suffer from acidity after eating oily foods.Sir, what should I do to get rid of acidity.
See a GI doctor: Sometimes excessive gastric acidity is associated with helicobacter pylori infection that can also increase risk of gastric cancer. You might also try ameliorating this with otc antacids, but that will not give you a specific diagnosis or cause for the hyperacidity (if that is what this is). Might be gallbladder disease. See a doctor and get this worked out properly. Good luck. ...Read more
I am eating healthy and drinking water but I keep getting diarrhea. Why do you think I keep getting diarrhea?
Diarrhea ??: You complain about persistent diarrhea. Have you had any weight loss? Are people around you who eat the same diet similarly affected. If not, why not?

I have an eating disorder and purge most of the food i eat. When i eat & don't purge i get bloating and the food doesn't digest. I can't eat normally?
Probably coincidence: But healthy eating is a must in this day and age of fast/packaged/restaurant food and heart attacks. And people are getting heart attacks younger, strokes more often, diabetes more severe. I assure you eating "healthy" should not make you feel sick, unless you are doubling up the change in diet with dieting pills. And there are not any quick weight loss diet pills that don't make people sick. ...Read more
If I have Diarrhea will I not get the calories, nutrients, or protein from the stuff I eat earlier?
See below: The stuff you ate more than 6-8 hours before diarrhea would have been digested and absorbed and will provide the nutrition you are questioning. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
