    Hi,

    I am writing for some advice on whether my diet is healthy or not for my age. I am a 16 year old male, weigh about 210 lbs, and consume roughly 1,500 calories a day. In addition, I exercise 4 times per week for about 2 hours per session, which I split up into 1/4 cardio and 3/4 strength training. Will being in this calorie deficit cause problems down the road? I hear a mixed bag of comments on the internet about whether lowering your caloric intake below your maintenance causes stunted growth. This raises a bit of a concern so any info on the matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes. It is called three healthy meals a day plus snacks if you are feeling hungry. Why oh why do we over think eating. It really is simple. Eat a balanced diet of protien, carbs and plenty of veg with the odd sweet / fat treat thrown in for good measure. Eat when you feel hungry and stop eating when you feel full. With lots of exercise, you can't go wrong. It really isn't rocket science. Listen to your body. It will tell you everything you need to know. You do not need supplements.
