Have you ever eaten a food product so much that you suddenly reached a limit where just the thought of ever eating that particular product again made you feel sick?
For me, this is the case with donuts. You see, in Norway, where I live, donuts are totally crappy. You can basically only get them in supermarkets or outlets such as McDonald's, and they are always dry and old. For years I longed back for the delicious Dunkin Donuts that I got to eat when I went to High School in the US.
Anyway, one and a half years ago I went to Manila with my wife in order to celebrate Christmas, and, lo and behold, here there were plenty of outlets selling fresh, warm donuts just as I had craved them for so long! Needless to say I ate A LOT of donuts (I'm not a big person so I didn't really feel guilty about it) and they all felt like a piece of heaven.
Towards the end of the vacation we still had some donuts left in a box at my wife's house. I ate a donut for breakfast and felt like I wanted one more. However, as soon as I started chewing on my second donut a feeling of nausea and disgust overtook me. I felt absolutely horrible, and couldn't even finish the donut. Since then I have had a serious aversion to donuts and don't think I could every really enjoy them again. I went to the Philippines again a few months ago, and I ate a single donut during my trip - only to see if I could enjoy it, but I just felt miserable eating it. Thus, even to this day the thought of eating donuts makes me feel bad.

I'm that way with cereal and pizza.
From about the 3rd to 8th grade, everyday it was cereal for breakfast. In my Freshman year of college, Pizza was breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Eventually got food-poisoned by undercooked chicken topping one once.
I now revolt at the thought of Cereal or Pizza if it's put in front of me. I was so psychologically battered by how sick I was after that Pizza that I cannot stand to eat anything with too much melted/stringy cheese in it now: pizza, calzones, breadsticks, etc.

Yes, cream cheese and plain bagels. I ate them solid for 12 years along with pop tarts. If anyone has heard of a resturant chain called makotos, you will know what by that too. The place serves ASE in their food.
ConcordeBoy, I can eat Chicken and pizza all night long.

Quoting Krje1980 (Thread starter): Have you ever eaten a food product so much that you suddenly reached a limit where just the thought of ever eating that particular product again made you feel sick?
Coming home from a friend's place last Easter, where we had consumed some... less than legal substances, I had a bad ass case of the munchies. So I came home, and all I had in the kitchen was hot dog buns and that pre-grated parmesan cheese. "Excellent," I thought and proceeded to pour the contents of the parmensan container onto the hot dog buns, and ate a total of 10. I felt so damn sick after than, and can't go near that processed, powedered parmesan again.
Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Subway - ate it a lot sophomore year of college (it was one of the few things open till 2 AM or so, I think). Haven't eaten it at all since then. Their subs suck ass anyway.
Hot Pockets - got me through a fair amount of freshman year. Will hopefully never get me through any other time in my life.
Vodka (when I used to drink at all) - used to be able to do shots of vodka as well as any other liquor. Then, one fine day, I realized that vodka tasted like utter crap. I don't remember if there was a particular bad experience that made me feel this way. But after awhile, even smelling it would make me want to puke.
Those things were just foul. It always seemed to be the cheap-ass neighbours who would give those out. And they would always stick to my teeth. I hated those things! If they're gone that's a blessing to all Canadian kids!

For my sins yes!
When I was around 10yr's old and living above my parents Newspaper shop which was a kind of small General store, I used to sneak down in the night and scoff chocolate. One Easter I was in the shop downstairs, and was caught by my dad helping myself to a chocolate egg off the shelf. Well he was well cross as these were for sale.. blah blah...So as my punishment I was made to eat chocolate until I was sick - Even though I was crying and trying to tell my parents I would never steal again etc....Well I remember being so sick I could not face chocolate again for ages, let alone pinch the goods!! It stopped me well and truly....That's probably why, even now, I am not a big chocolate lover

Corn Flakes for me. I remember having a few mouthfuls and bringing them up very shortly afterwards. Its a childhood memory that still imprints on my brain and sometimes I can still taste them... Vile Vile..

I think the only thing that I have a serious aversion to due to overindulgence is Southern Comfort. When I was just out of school we were sitting under a big willow tree at a local park, drinking SoCo and Coke from draught beer glasses... now just the smell of it makes my stomach churn
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Certain kinds of hard liquors... And Snickers. Several years ago I was hiking in Ireland for a few weeks and my main source of food was Snickers. Haven't eaten one for over 5 years now. At least the thought of eating one doesn't make me sick anymore. Maybe I could eat it again.
