    I don't see how. Eating primally helps improve hormone function. AS long as you are making sure to get the needed micronutrients, which I find easier to do when I don't eat grains. I think an adolescent should be eating plenty of veggies and fruits for sure. But primal as a whole leans towards that.

    I've read that teens could have an "acne deficiency" by eating Primal during those formative years. I'd be very curious to see a scientific test on the subject, but most people notice their skin clears up after they switch to PB.

    Exactly!!!!

    And I agree with Barry. Acne deficiency too. Which is good because I read recently that teens with acne are more likely to commit suicide. So primal is the way to go!

    A paleo/primal diet is FAR more nutrient-dense and hormone-supportive than any other way of eating -- regardless of age.

    Or another way to look at it is that your body is adapted to eat Primal, so the best way to get nutritional deficiencies is to NOT eat Primal. Remembering of course that Primal means organs too. Yum.
