Diets for Teenagers: 12-15 years old Teens Diet Plan

Diets for teenagers should always be well balanced and never too strict.

This teenage diet plan is ideal for young 12 through 15 years old teens who need to lose extra pounds and establish healthy eating habits. Follow this plan for few weeks and you will lose up to 10 pounds. Just make sure you never feel super hungry and drink plenty of water.

If this diet menu seems very different from what you are eating right now, and you feel that this is way too little food for you, you may include few fresh veggie or fruit snacks into your daily menu.

Remember that this is just a sample menu, and you should always talk to your parents or doctor before going on diets for teenagers. Check your weight once a week and if you lose more than 2 pounds a week, please see your doctor, losing weight too fast is as unhealthy as gaining it too fast.
