I don't see there should be any difference in PB way of eating for a teenager, IMHO it will help you get the best nutition, especailly vitamins and minerals, comapred to a SAD consiting of fake food made in a factory.
The only problem I see is convincing your parents to feed you this way as they hold the purse strings and go to the store.
I really feel that you need to bring them on-board with how you want to eat, show them the basics - preferably printed off and have some of the reseach to back it up, show them sucess stories, not just the beached whale to fighting fit ones, but ones like this fridays, healthy normal athletic people choosing to follow this way of eating for their health even though they did not need to drop a lot of weight.
You sound like an intellegent and articulate person, so let them know, it's respectful to them, and hopefully they will support you. Even if they don't understand, it will help when you don't want to eat grains and sugar.
Organic veggies and grass fed meat and dairy, pastured eggs are a bonus, but they are exspensive, not knowing your family situation, I can't comment, but we eat to a budget, no orgainc veggies unless we grow our own and out meat is sometimes free-range, or outdoor bred, dairy is standard UK (which is 90% grass fed - yay for us, but it's not raw) we do find and spend less on food than pre-primal. Point I'm making is eating real whole foods is the biggy, the organic/grassfed/local is just gravy IMHO and should't make or break you from being 'Primal'
As long as you are not hungry and eating plenty of veggies, meat, eggs and healthy fat, along with fruit, full fat dairly etc, I doubt you will be malnourised and you should be full most of the time and the fat should start to go. The only thing I would avoid at this stage is IF, keep fueling yourself while you are growing and studying.
All the best
