Eating disorders are more than just dieting. Eating disorders are a disease that affects all aspects of a patient’s life. The causes are a diverse group of emotional factors and influences, that have a profound impact on the person who suffer them and their families.
People with anorexia may be very sensitive to being perceived as obese or have a great fear of getting fat. Although not everyone suffers from anorexia has these fears. They may be afraid of losing control of how much they eat, that comes with a desire to control their emotions and how they respond to them.
Binge Eating Disorder
Men and women with binge eating disorder suffer from multiple symptoms, similar to obsessive-compulsive overeating and bulimia. The causes of binge-eating may be similar to the causes of Compulsive overeating. Patients use Binges as a way to hide their emotions, fill their internal voids and cope with daily stress and problems in life.
Men and women with bulimia will go into binge eating and laxative episodes-they will eat large amounts of food in a short period of time and then adopt behaviors like taking laxatives or self-induced vomiting. They do this because they feel unable to deal with their emotions or feel dissatisfied, in order to punish themselves.
People who overeat compulsively have what it is known as an “addiction” to food. They use food and diet to cover up their emotions, fill their internal voids, and cope with daily pressures and problems in life.
My main goal was to lose weight and measurements and to improve my physical condition and, as a consequence, improve my health and even my mental state. I didn’t think there was something stopping me from achieving this, I just hadn’t found the right help, until I came across Something Fishy. It was exactly what I was looking for.”

“I’ve been with Something Fishy for a little over a month and a half and I’m very happy with the results, it was a good decision to contact them. The diet is not hard at all and week by week I am seeing the results, and I am feeling more fit.”
“Something Fishy gave me the knowledge I needed about diets and training. In a matter of two months, I went from having a normal body to the body I always wanted to achieve. I learned how to feed myself, how to keep strict track of my weekly training and body measurements to be able to evaluate my progress.”
