Hi!  Thank you for writing your concerns.  I would speak to your parents.  You need to see your pediatrician to rule out any possible underlying medical concerns or direction on your nutritional needs.  If you need added support, you could seek help from a dietitian.  In the meantime, to learn more about eating disorders and treatment options, visit The Bella Vita website.  My best to you, Dr Patricia Pitts, PhD   The Bella Vita  Los Angeles, CA

You're fine! Eat healthy food and try new things. Your body will be whatever shape and size it is supposed to be (your friends' bodies, too) when you treat it with respect. That should be your ONLY concern.
