i need help with finding out if teenagers need different requirements in their diet than that a an adult in their early 20's

If you are between 15 and 18, you're completing your final major growth spurt and on your way to becoming an adult.

For girls, this means adding some fat padding. For boys, it means adding muscle and increasing the volume of blood. These changes often encourage girls to diet unnecessarily to stay slim, while boys may overeat to satisfy their appetites. Both can lead to health problems down the road, and, incidentally, probably will not do the job you want right now.
