Recently (past few months) I've had been increasing my food intake (in order to work out more efficiently) and I've found myself with an increased hunger as well. However every meal it gets to the point where the food "tickles" the back of my throat and I start to gag.
Now this doesn't stop me being hungry and I can continue to eat whilst attempting to subside this effect but it is rather annoying trying to eat and to keep on gagging (it happens even if I eat small portions so it's not the size or the food I eat).
What ways's can I aim to stop this from happening or alternatively is there (I cannot believe I'm askng this...) any way to tame my gag reflex?

Go back to your old diet for a couple of weeks and see what happens. You said you increased the amount of food you eat. So maybe you increased it too much and your body is trying to tell you something.
There is also a possibility this is about liquids or electrolytes. You may not be hydrated enough and it's causing dry or raw throat.
The thing about diet is that no matter how much you read and study about it, it is individual. Everyone reacts differently to different diets. You need to listen to your own body.
Aside from anything to do with the diet itself, it could be purely psychological. Once you start thinking you are going to gag, the gag reflex just increases because you expect it.0
