Protein-rich foods are especially important for growing adolescents, as they are the building blocks of new tissues.

Eating things like fast food, processed foods, and toomuch sugar can still negatively impact your health, even if you exercise. For one, most of those foods aremissing important nutrients. Filling up on nutrient sparse food, even if you eat enough calories, will leave necessary ingredients missing in your diet. Furthermore, you need fuel in order to exercise! For example, endurance exercise relies on healthy carbs. Muscle-building activities call upon lean proteins, and recovering from intense exercise requires healthy fats. Eating a bunch of junk food doesn’t exactly fuel your performance.
