Can Kids and Teens follow this protocol?
Rob's standard answer when asked this question is:
"I do not believe this protocol should be done by teens or children. This protocol is a 'last resort' for those of us that have spent a lifetime messing up our metabolisms and have exhausted all forms of traditional diet/exercise and nothing seems to work.
A teen or child hasn't had a lifetime yet so all exercise/diet options should be exhausted first regardless of what the parent, who ultimately has the decision on the issue, decides to do. You don't want to condition your children to look for solutions to problems inside a bottle or pill, right? (my 2 cents)."
In addition, Dr. Dominick Giovanniello says the following:
"Children and young teens should not be subjected to ANY sort of calorie restriction or life altering diets. For the most part, they are still growing and any type of restriction could interfere with normal growth and development. These diets are for adults who have had severe problems attaining normal weight, which will negatively impact their health down the road.
As for menstruation, these diets can alter the cycle, especially in young women who are in the early stages of puberty. This is another reason to not subject adolescents to such a regimen/protocol."
