She'll decide: I'm going to assume you're a parent, possibly a concerned one. Vegetarian / vegan diets are popular among teenaged girls and may be well-informed or based on disinformation (teens have good hearts & are easily deceived).

Inadequate Diet?: John, it sounds as if your diet may be inadequate in terms of protein which is often a problem area for many vegetarians. Also you may benefit from more fat and complex carbs in your diet as well. Your symptoms could also be hypoglycemia as well. If you are a true vegan it is difficult to get enough protein especially.
