Laura Motosko, MSEd, RD, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredA modified low-carb diet which reduces simple carbohydrates is good for teens. Simple carbohydrates to eat less often include refined white bread products, sweetened beverages, processed and packaged junk food with added sugar. Be selective of your carbohydrates and choose nutrient dense starchy vegetables such as beans and sweet potatoes, fruits, and soy or dairy products. Eat a balanced diet with protein in lean meats, poultry, fish or nuts. Vegetables are low calorie, high in fiber and powerful vitamins and antioxidants, eat unlimited amounts.
