What you describe would happen to me anytime I double my workout intensity. It happened many times, I went through many medical check ups everytime, and everytime I was told I was totally fine. It was not dehydration. It was not low blood sugar.
The point is, I could gradually increase the workout intensity without any problems whatsoever. But a sudden increase was totally not well received.
This is actually pretty well known especially in the professional weight lifting community. You try lifting heavy too hard and end up puking.

There could be plenty of things going on, but if it keeps occurring and you are concerned, I would check with your doctor. That said, I don't eat a lot of dairy (yogurt and cottage cheese), but I definitely don't consume it before a workout after having a few bad experiences like yours. I find I do best with a quick carb, like a banana or some grapes.
I am hypoglycemic and that is EXACTLY what started happening to me before I was diagnosed, even though I never felt that sick while working out before.
Try having something small that is all sugar when you start to feel ill, like a juice box, or a jolly rancher, or a fruit leather. Seriously just stop and eat it no matter how much you feel like puking. If you feel better within 5 minutes then it's low blood sugar and you're going to have to eat more before working out or have a drink like gatorade while working out if you want to continue exercise of that magnitude.
If you are not getting dizzy but just feeling like you are going to throw up, I would consider not eating yogurt or any dairy before working out. I used to see this all the time in football camp. Guys would drink a glass of milk about an hour before the practice and the milk would curdle in their stomachs and they would throw up. I also ate some yogurt before a wrestling match and 10 minutes after I was throwing up the yogurt. At least that is where I would start.

Sounds like either dehydration or low blood sugar. Where are your calories at each day? I found when I workout in the morning, I tend to get a little lightheaded, so I do most of my exercising at night. I usually have a full day's worth of calories in me before working out. About 1-2 hours before you work out, try to get in a snack that has a fat, protein and carb and aim for around 150-200 calories.

Hey guys, I need some advice. I've been going to the gym for over a year & love it. A while ago I got a program from a trainer who pushed pushed pushed the 1st time he showed us how to do the program. Seriously light headed & thought I was going to throw up at the gym. Got home & I actually did. I felt a lot better when I took a shower & cooled down. Well the same thing is happening again. I started taking an aerobics course a few months ago 2 times a week. For the past 2 weeks we have been going outside for the course for 30 mins of the hour. When we get back in & start to do crunches, planks & anything else where I am bending, crunching or head down like in the plank I start to feel like I am going to throw up. I am not feeling dizzy or anything. I drink water with lemon all day & continue to while at the gym. I eat almonds, yogurt or cheese & crackers about an hour & a half to 2 hrs before going to the gym. Could it be that I am pushing to hard & my heart rate & blood pressure is getting to high?
