Appropriate Dieting Age?
Hi guys, it's been a while since I last posted.
I'm 17 years old, I weigh 158, and I train at Coban's Muay Thai Camp 4-5 times a week. Several months back, a member of this forum suggested that I simply eat clean, and eat as much as possible, since I am still young and growing. I've come back for a second opinion and to revisit this question. Do you guys think I would be okay doing something like Intermittent Fasting, or keto/paleo etc. etc. at my age? If so, what would you guys recommend?
EDIT: forgot to mention.
-I train from 5:30 PM to 6:30 or 7:30, so 1-2 hours per day.
-I eat breakfast at 6:30 AM, lunch at 11:30 AM, and dinner after my commute, anywhere from 7:30 to 9 PM.
-I take Vyvanse, a medication for my ADHD, at approximately 1:30pm. My afternoons require more sustained focus than my mornings. I have a fast metabolism, so the effects of the drug do not last 12 hours -- only around 6 or 7. Keep in mind that Vyvanse is a stimulant, so I require more food when taken, but my appetite is reduced.
