  • How Young ?

    Is the primal blueprint is a good way of life for kids and teens? Are they too young? What would be an appropriate age to start following the Primal Blueprint?

    The best age to start is before birth.

    Any age child can and should eat a grain and legume free diet.

      I think it's always a good idea to eat real food (no toxic grains, no vegetable oils, NO SUGAR) and avoid the processed food that most young people seem to depend on. As for whether to follow a paleo/primal diet hardcore, I think that depends on someone's goals... is it to solve health problems? lose weight? cross a fitness plateau? just overall health? and does the kid/teen really want to do it, or are you a parent trying to force them to?

      I wish I had started the PB as a teen. My health would only have benefited from it.

        Upon conception. Or earlier, if you actually plan for things like that.

          Why would it be that a standard diet of grains and processed food and sugar that we all know is bad for us, would be appropriate for children? Why would it be that the food that helps adults recover from obesity and diabetes and promotes general health and wellbeing would be harmful to children?

              In utero.

              My friend has a Primal 2-year-old. Never been sick, ever.

              Same for Sarah at everydaypaleo.com. Her littlest one is probably about 4 now. Never been sick.

              If you have other kids already, then you can appreciate how remarkable that is.

                I coach youth soccer U12s and U17s, and part of my teachings are on nutrition and how it helps you perform. Since i've been on the PB 1 1/2 years, several of the kids, and their parents have gone primal. They've loved it. You're never too young or too old to be healthy, happy, and Primal.
