The Diet for Teenagers Only is a book by Barbara Schroeder and Carrie Wiatt and is a diet plan that has been specifically designed for girls aged 13 to 19. The plan provides teen girls with the information they need to learn how to eat right and to treat their body with respect. A direct quote from the book says, “This is the most critical time for you to learn to eat right and treat your body with the respect—and the nutrition—it deserves.”

The information that The Diet for Teenagers Only provides includes the following:

• 7-day meal plans that can be modified to suit different calorie needs
• Create –your-own menu options
• Color cutouts of foods that help a teen to understand what an actual portion size looks like
• Tips for grocery shopping
• Recipes that are easy to follow
• A personal food diary to chart daily progress
• A detailed exercise program designed to strengthen the body and boost energy.

Pros

The Diet for Teenagers Only is written in both a friendly and informative way. While being light-hearted and up-beat, it is also filled with practical tips, recipes, and information that can help the average teen girl understand more about her body and the changes she is experiencing throughout this growth stage of her life. Plenty of attention is focused on nutrition and proper calorie requirement, as well as how to control emotional eating. This book was written for teens and has been specifically designed to fit their lifestyle and needs.

The cost of this diet is fairly reasonable. The only costs are the one-time purchase of the book, which can be found at more than one online store for under $20.00, and the normal cost of groceries.

Cons

The Diet for Teenagers Only is designed solely for teen girls, so it provides no information for teen boys. Furthermore, while it offers recipes, the diet does not take into account allergies or food intolerances. For instance, the authors recommended that teens ingest three servings of dairy per-day. This would be problematic for anyone who is lactose intolerant.

Neither author is a medical practitioner. Therefore, while they may provide practical advice, prior to following what is recommended in this book, it would first be prudent for a teen girl to discuss her weight loss goals and any dietary changes she would like to make in accordance with these goals, with her healthcare provider.
