Your body weight is so low i wonder how it went unnoticed,and why are you calculating calories consumed for breakfast at such young age.Please start having 3 complete meals and too light snacks regulerly.If you cut down on foods you will have ill effects on health very soon which will be long term.Food is essential for nourishment and proper functioning of body.Donot skip meals.The body requires certain amout of calories daily to be functioning in the right way.Donot neglect health and start eating, your apetite will pick up.Consult a physician.
