What is late puberty?

Delayed puberty

Puberty
The typical adolescent, endowed with the impatience and insecurities of youth, would probably insist that any nanosecond that doesn’t bring an increase in height, breast size or beard growth qualifies as delayed puberty. Medicine has its own definitions: for boys, no testicular enlargement by the age of thirteen; and for girls, no breast development by thirteen or no menarche by sixteen.

Dr. Laura Webb answered:

When does puberty start?

Variable

Puberty
Girls generally start between ages 8-11 and boys between 9 and 12. For girls the first sign is a growth spurt and then development of pubic hair and breasts. For boys puberty generally starts with an increase in testicular size and their growth spurt comes later. Menses generally starts about when a girl's growth spurt is done.

Can my diet affect puberty?

Yes!

Diet
If you run a caloric deficit because of inadequate calorie intake, eating disorder,or over exercising, you will delay puberty, and if in puberty, stop having menstrual cycles. If this happens, other serious problems can occur. Then you can develop the athletic ammenorheic triad, including osteoporosis. Athletes in gymnastics are particularly prone to this: combined emphasis on weight and exercise.
