I'm a 15 year old female, 110 lbs, and every day I feel very lethargic. I feel like I have to drag myself everywhere because I feel so weak.
My symptoms are:
Daily fatigue
Dizziness
Headaches
Blurry/blackout vision whilst walking or when I get up, without actually passing out
The need to sleep a lot
General depression symptoms
Yellowing at the bottom of eye whites

I went to my doctor and got blood tests done and she said there's nothing wrong with me, but my body's run down because I have a very poor diet.
I don't eat meat, rarely any vegetables or fruit, but I eat plenty of pasta, I don't know if that's any good. I'm very lazy and don't have the motivation to exercise, but I have fast metabolism. I walk to school every day (10 minutes walk) and back, that's my exercise for the day. I spend on average 6-8 hours online daily, longer on weekends.
Please don't suggest I improve my diet because I cannot tolerate the taste of most foods, I'm very fussy. I basically live off noodles and junk food. Is there anything else besides trying to exercise, spending less time online and eating better etc I can do?
Or do I have some illness you could tell me about, judging from my symptoms?
Thanks, I appreciate any advice.

  • I agree with what your doctor has said.. your body is probably run down due to your poor diet. This is likely to cause you more and more issues as you get older. With eatting most pasta and not veg and meat, you just wont get the nutrients you need and probably have deficiencies. There isnt a lot of goodness in just pasta (which is usualy made of plain white flour). Best getting yourself and taking a good multivitamin tablet seeing you wont eat the foods your body needs.

  • I am on day three of taking a one half serving of the Vanilla Whole Food Health Optimizer, mixing it with Vanilla Soy Milk. Since the first day I have been feeling increasingly lethargic - could this also be a symptom of cleansing? I decided to start taking this after doing a search on the internet for a meal replacement that would also help with hormone regulation. I am 30 years old, overweight with hormone irregularities.
