    What's the term for disgust of food when you have eaten excessively, due to sweetness or something?

    I checked the meaning of these words,

    indigestion - uncomfortable inability or difficulty in digesting food

    nausea - sickness at the stomach, esp. when accompanied by a loathing for food and an involuntary impulse to vomit.

    surfeit - excess or overindulgence in eating or drinking.

    * I can't look for dyspeptic...

    surfeit is closer to what I'm looking for, you feel disgust for food (though your not full yet) because you have eaten much sweet(for example)...

    can somebody gives me examples for this!!

    when you've eaten a lot of sweets, you feel nauseous, feel sick of it, i.e. you feel an urge to vomit and a sickly distaste for sweets. You can even say that you feel 'green' from eating too much candy.

    "I feel nauseous of eating cake." -is this right?

    How do you say it in everyday English?
