Rapid weight loss

We have had our cat since birth. He is maybe 10 yrs old. He has been outside most of his life. In the last month he has lost a ton of weight and poops all the time ( yesterday alone we cleaned up 7 piles of poo) He eats a lot. If his dish is empty he cries until we fill it. Sometimes he will eat so fast and so much it comes right back up. I can't really afford to take him to the vet. I just can't find anything on here that helps b/c he IS eating but losing weight. He is still very out going and loving and he still LOOKS the same. His eyes aren't foggy or glassy and his coat is still the same, although it does look more brown than black now. I want to know what this could be. There aren't actual worms in his stool either.
