* Chemotherapy patients experience a strange variation on this: the body associates the introduction of poison into the bloodstream with having consumed something poisonous, hence the common symptom of nausea. This is the body quite appropriately acting to rid itself of a potentially dangerous meal, as it would do for food poisoning or if you tried eating that colorful mushroom you found in the woods. Chemotherapy patients are warned not to eat their favorite foods on days that they receive treatment, because the body will begin to associate that food with being sick. Eventually the very thought of pizza or cheesecake will make them nauseous thanks to Pavlovian Conditioning. Many treatment centers give patients a "scapegoat food" to help avert this; generally an obscure and unlikely to be missed type of hard candy.
** Some hospitals used a special kind of ice cream flavor that wasn't publicly available, for this very purpose.

* The premise of ''Literature/ChocolateFever'' by Robert Kimmel Smith. Over the course of the story, the protagonist's chocolate addiction causes him to break out in spots of chocolate. By the end of the story, he can still eat chocolate, just in moderation.

* Invoked, though not actually carried out, in Change123. Hibiki and Mikiri, Motoko's more childish personalities, are messy and lazy, and when required to begin leading a day to day existence they don't bother cleaning the apartment and eat junk food instead of cooking. [[OnlySaneMan Terhuaru]] scares them into starting by pointing out that if they continue living-off of junk food they'll eventually get a stomach ache, and that an unclean apartment will eventually be filled with cockroaches.

* Used ''twice'' on Ranmaru in Manga/TheWallflower. His father, exasperated with his womanising and hoping to cement an ArrangedMarriage, reminds him of when he was a child and loved pudding. So when young Ranmaru asked for a pudding bigger than his head, he got sick of it less than halfway through. With that anecdote in mind, he starts sending Ranmaru from place to place full of women. Ranmaru refuses to back down, continuing to entertain all the women to the point of exhaustion.

* One of Jean de la Fontaine's ''Literature/TalesInVerse'' has a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop version. TheCasanova aristocrat sleeps with the wife of his servant and to prove to the servant that monogamy is impossible, serves him eel pie daily. This is at first a delicacy, but soon becomes unbearable.
* Done in ''Literature/TheGreatBrainIsBack'' when Tom, in experiment to find out why men smoke, gets caught smoking a cigarette in the barn. Papa tells him he may not smoke cigarettes outside, but he's free to have a pipe or cigar in the house anytime. Tom lasts about a few minutes before turning green, and when his girlfriend says she doesn't like the smell anyway, he concludes that men smoke in order to repel women.

* In ''Literature/OtisSpofford'' by Creator/BeverlyCleary, the title character's teacher has him make spitballs exclusively as punishment for shooting them. Cleary also includes a story in her autobiography of some boys who chewed garlic in class. The principal finally bought a dollar's worth of garlic--this was in the 1930s--and had them chew it all.
* There's a children's book called ''Literature/TheChocolateTouch'' based on the legend of King Midas where a boy who eats too much candy unwittingly buys a magic chocolate from TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday. After he eats it, everything he puts into his mouth turns to chocolate, making him thirsty and sick and ruining some possessions, like his trumpet. Finally he accidentally turns his mother into a chocolate statue by kissing her on the cheek, runs back to the shop's proprietor and tells him he's learned the error of his ways, and is allowed a ResetButton.
* Another children's book, ''Literature/StregaNona'', is a SorcerersApprenticePlot starring the titular grandmotherly witch and her magic pot that produces pasta on command. The apprentice in question, Big Anthony, wanted some pasta, so while Strega Nona was out, he said the magic words to produce the pasta. However, he didn't know that you have to blow three kisses to make the pasta pot stop making pasta. The Radish Cure comes in at the end: Big Anthony's ''punishment'' for having flooded the entire village with pasta ... is having to eat all of it.

* A not wholly uncommon plot in hentai manga, generally of a more humorous bent and pandering to some combination of the MILF, shotacon and/or incest crowds. The basic plot goes: a mother catches her son masturbating. She tells him that he's allowed to, but only while looking at/touching/thinking about her. This being hentai, one can easily guess what tends to follow.

One should note that beyond the obvious health risks involved, on a purely educational level this method can quickly become a BrokenAesop. When your kid asks for chocolate and you reply by saying he'll never be allowed to eat anything else again, you're pretty obviously ''not'' giving him "what he wanted", you're just being mean.



* Invoked, though not actually carried out, in Change123. Hibiki and Mikiri, Motoko's more childish personalities, are respectively messy and lazy, and when required to begin leading a day to day existence ([[ItMakesSenseInContext they are alternate personalities who are only used to surface during times of duress, so this is new to them]]) they don't bother cleaning the house and eat junk food instead of cooking. [[OnlySaneMan Terhuaru]] scares them into starting by pointing out that if they continue living-off of junk food they'll evetualky get a stomach ache, and that an unclean apartment will eventually be filled with cockroaches.

* John Moloney mentions this.
-->'''John:''' I remember when I was 14, my mother caught me masturbating, that was very embarrassing. Thankfully, she was quite understanding. Also when I was 14, my dad caught me smoking cigarettes and he made me smoke 20 in a row, and I thought, "Well, thank God it wasn't him who caught me masturbating!"
