Dear Carol: Can you lose weight too fast?

 
 
I’ve been on a diet for six months, and I’ve done great. I lost 20 pounds. But I’m getting dark circles under my eyes, and I think my period has stopped.

Dear Weighty Concerns,
When a heavy girl drops 20 pounds sensibly, that is terrific. When an average-weight girl loses that much, it can be life threatening. The goal is to be healthy, not super skinny. If you are dieting compulsively, it’s imperative that you eat more. Your body needs food to thrive. Dark circles and missed periods do not always point to an eating disorder, but they can be signs of anorexia. Talk to a doctor, school nurse or counselor about this right away.
