Hi ! May I ask what's ur opinion about teenagers cutting/bulking ? Age ranges anywhere from 15-18..
Hmmmm interesting question. This can be broken into two areas: physiological and psychological. I’ll give my quick personal opinion and then link you too some articles that go into more detail.
In my opinion teenagers would be better off just focusing on performance in their given discipline. Eat to support these needs. Unfortunately, especially in western cultures, there is more and more pressure and expectations for teenagers to be ripped or skinny or have a six pack etc. So while I can say that they should enjoy food and train hard, the fact is, the majority are more focused on how they look.
While this can be troublesome on it’s own and has definately led to increases in body image and eating disorders in teens, it’s made even worse that most teens are impressionable and believe information from unreliable sources. This leads to dangerous dieting practices which exacerbates everything.
So I suppose I would advise teenagers to eat to support their needs but this is wishful thinking. If they are going to diet, It would be a lot better if they had a decent knowledge or mentor to monitor and advise them in safe ways to achieve their body composition goals.
