-You're ahead of the game of most teenagers in terms of health awareness - even if you're doing now is unhealthy, you're on the path to find out what is healthy.
I agree with this. You are way ahead. Plus, a diet of lean meat, fruit, and veggies isn't all that bad. You may prefer a higher fat diet, but meat, fruit, and veggies are still way better than candy bars, potato chips, and top ramen, which is what a lot of people eat. So I think you'll be okay eating mostly lean meat, fruit, and veggies until you're old enough to make your own food decisions.
Sorry what? Since when is sugar primal? Did I say that I've lost 2kg since I started this diet? (Which is quite an achievement considering that I'm lean and I don't do any exercise, for now).
When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

I'm assuming what fiercehunter meant is that the body requires "sugar" (as in glycogen). Anyone doing HIIT like activities or heavy intense strength training will find their performance drastically suffers on veggies and fruits alone.
Starches have their place in the diet for those who require them. If you are sedentary, low carb is perfect for you.
Some of us aren't overweight and looking to lose pound after pound.
Dairy, raw if you can get it, all of it. Coconut Oil and milk. Avacados and nuts. Canned or fresh fish, especially sardines, mackeral, cod, anchovies, tuna, and fish oil.
Being a teenager is hard in itself. Your parents love you. Love yourself and them. Try to make things as easy as possible. Get lots of really good sleep, your body is growning and changing at a tremendous rate. Don't expect your parents to change, that's really unlikely.
I'm trying to picture myself as a rebellion platform. LOL. Ridiculous.

Agreed with all you said EatMoveSleep, and my grandparents ate mostly pasta and bread, a lot of carbs at every meal.
Yeah different from mine:
-All meats with fat
-Butter, olive oil
-Some Fruit, Some nuts
-Some Beans & legumes
-Some bread, Some rice (No pasta. No processed food, or take sways - didn't exist)
-No Sweets (except a small amount of honey, sugar, sweet fruits)
-Walked and did physical work, fresh air
Note: most foods ( meats, veg and cheese was home grown).
Low fat (anything) did not exist, fat was NOT cut away but eaten.
