OP could be using the internet at school, a library, an internet cafe, or on a mobile device where her family is locked into the contract and have to pay for it regardless of whatever financial changes they went through last year. Also, she's only 17 and it is unlikely that SHE gets to set the priority for spending within the household. Its sounds as though the rest of her family is not concerned about their food situation. She says she wants to change how she eats, is unable to do so for another year, and is scared about the consequences of her circumstances. I'd be more willing to blame the decision makers for skewed priorities, if that is even the case.

No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.
