Purging out after Food

Is it normal for a person to purge out (through vomitting) after having a large sumptious meal?
Do they feel like the food is getting stucked along their esophagus?

I have changed my eating habits, eating meals with lesser oil, sugar, salt.
I can't take sweet cordials anymore.
I don't like if the food is too salty.
I don't eat food served with lots of MSG.
I can't drink milos from the vending machine.
I can't take large servings of nyonya kuihs anymore.
I feel 'yucky' if i take too much of goreng pisang.
(Luckily, i still love McD fries)

I still have a little cravings for coke, McD and ice creams and good food!
I love japanese food the most as it has the least oil.

I remembered my experience taking 2 pieces of KFC chicken.
I puke immediately when I reach office after lunch.

If i ever had buffets, my last course would be ice cream.
I will puke out the ice cream.
Is ice cream the root cause of the problem?

Am i Bulimic?

I was reading from the websites, http://psychcentral.com/disorders/sx3.htm, and http://www.helpguide.org/mental/bulimia_signs_symptoms_causes_treatment.htm

What is bulimic?
Bulimia nervosa is characterized by frequent episodes of binge eating, from twice a week to multiple times a day, followed by frantic efforts to avoid gaining weight.

People with bulimia are extremely concerned with their weight, yet they can’t fight the compulsion to binge. So they drastically overeat, and then they purge, fast, or exercise to get rid of the calories. This vicious cycle of bingeing and purging takes a toll on the body, and it’s even harder on emotional well-being.

It's pretty scary that I have answered most 'yes' in the checklist:
Are you obsessed with your body and your weight? -Yes
Does food and dieting dominate your life? - Yes
Are you afraid that when you start eating, you won’t be able to stop? - yes
Do you ever eat until you feel sick? - Half. I feel like puking.
Do you feel guilty, ashamed, or depressed after you eat? - Yes
Do you vomit or take laxatives to control your weight? - Yes. I vomit it all out and work out excessively to remove the calories. I even try fasting on fruits/veggies before.

I love to eat.
That's my biggest enemy
