2 weeks late, I feel very weak and tired

User Profile
I am 17 years old and work out for an hour or more a day. I don't eat large abundances (800-900 calories a day). My period is almost 2 weeks late, I feel very weak and tired and am starting to gain a very strong appetite (which is unusual for me). What could you suspect of this?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for your increase in appetite without examining you. If you are having active lifestyle or have incorporated exercises (with increase in exercise levels), your body could be demanding increased calorie intake to meet the requirements. Your calorie intake is less compared to your activity level. If you are worried, you should consider visiting your healthcare provider/nutritionist for further evaluation and assistance. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
