    I would say it depended on how big she was, or if she has a high metabolism

    It is healthy for a 17 year old woman to eat good but don't eat a large amount at one time. Eat smaller portions. People wonder how I can eat so much and not get bigger. That is because I eat small portions 4 or 5 times a day and my metabolism is fast.

    Well, she probably has a huge appetite cause she is either growing, pregnant, or she has an eating disorder.

    I have large binges where i eat large amounts of food, it's called compulsive overeating, and it's an eating disorder.

    Talk to the 17 year old and ask her questions.

    i'm 17 and female but i don't feel like eating large amounts of food 3 to 4 times a day. yes, i do have breakfast , lunch and dinner. and sometimes i have a snack. usually i grab some kind of chocolate, but mum forces me to have a banana, or pears or a few kiwis or something. sometimes i don't eat my meals properly because i just don't feel like it, and then mum gets all worried (unnecessarily) and sometimes i eat a lot. so i guess, all teenagers vary in their eating habits because they're going through this weird period of their life. i guess hormones could also have something to do with eating habits.

    Well, I did when I was that age. (You may still be growing, taller that is, I didn't stop growing until I was about 22.)
