Sorry. I was going by what it sounded like in your original posting.

Oh and I recently discovered that he WILL eat lettuce. Quite a bit too. I suppose it's an okay replacement for grass. People say cats eat grass to help them throw up, but I believe cats are going more for the nitrilocide in grass and leafy greens, as I'm sure modern cat food has none of it.
Wow!! Researchers and vets for years and years have not been able to give a definitive answer or ascertain with absolute certainty why cats eat grass. Good on you!

If you believe there is something in the cat food that is affecting your cat to the point where he is throwing up every day then I can only suggest you cut out all foods you are currently feeding and start with the basics again. Why not try a novel protein like rabbit, venison, etc.? But then you probably already have.
Other than that the only other thing I can do is give you the standard fool-proof "go to the vet" answer. If one of my 42+ cats are ever throwing up on a regular basis they go in yesterday.
I am sorry we could not help you more than this.
