Talk sense into my parents!!!
Ok so I am extremely mad right now. My parents all of a sudden think taking protein and creatine are going to kill me. They are trying to take them away from me. Will somebody please tell them I'm not going to drop and die from taking this. And that carnivore protein isn't a stimulant. They are so ignorant on the topic. I'd appreciate it if somebody could help me out.

Seriously though you don't need protein and creatine and if your parents want to take them away from you that is their right to. Well depending on your age and if you live in their house.

Still if you're not legally an adult yet then you parents can take it away from you if they so please. Have some respect for your parents and obey them.

attempt to have an educated mature
conversation with your parents
if that doesn't work, then **** it-don't worry about it. I didn't touch anything when I was in high school when I lifted
they're gonna have the final say

Yea I've tried that, but they don't know anything about the topic and think I'm feeding them bs. And I know I don't have to touch anything at this age, but I'm experienced for a 17 year old, with somewhat respectable numbers. For my age atleastOriginally Posted by Sean1332
I just like the little extra strength creatine gives me, and the protein helps me reach my macros, I only drink one shake a day. And that is either post workout, or upon waking. I know it isn't necessary, but it is helpful. Thanks for the responses guys

Bottom line is - Listen to your mom and and dad. Respect and honor them. If they don't want you taking it then don't take it, do not talk back or argue with them.

Tell them to get out of the 60s and explore a new field of knowledge concerning diet, and nutrition with some supplementation along with a weightlifting template
09-14-2012, 12:40 AM
Maybe that will help bro tell then to read that article
09-14-2012, 01:10 AM
But they're right. Carnivor is crap. You are wasting money on collagen.
Anyway, moved to the general supplement section since this is not really a scientific discussion.
09-14-2012, 01:20 AM
People are abusing the supplement science section ALREADY? tell them to post that crap in ask PA section like they usually do
but yeah, when I was in high school and a few years after while living at home....every time I'd get sick, my mom would say it was all the protein and "crap" i was taking. no its not a stomach virus or the common cold right? its the protein ...they like to blame things that they don't understand....or that they think you are "wasting your money on"....as if they are being made to buy it for you. My parents STILL don't know the first thing about nutrition or macros etc, wouldn't know a protein from a starch to save their lives....and my mom is a long time cafeteria manager at the local middle school LMFAO.....

Try sitting down together and do some research with them and see if they of they could pick out a protein they approve of if not say
F@ck never mind just cook me some more chicken but not in those words;-)

Go there and read up. The safety of creatine is well-documented, and multiple studies are linked. If you search around examine.com, you'll find the relevant info on protein as well, that it's safe.
If reason and evidence fail to convince your folks, lie and take the stuff anyway.

Dude I'm 34, 5'7" and 220 at 8% been doing this since I was in the marines at 18 and to this day my mom thinks I'm going to die from protein and creatine. When I was about 16 I bought some bulk mono and my mom found it and just about killed me like I was doing coke or something. Point is no matter what I tell her she won't believe me to this day so just roll with it and exept the fact that your parents care enough to be concerned.

I would recommend that you take one or both of them to see your physician and have them explain it. Although you might want to get your physician's opinion first in case they say that you don't need it at your age! Your physician won't want to tell your parents what to do or not to do, but simply to educate them a little bit. You could also have them speak to a trainer at a gym, the health teacher at your school, the biology teacher at your school, etc.? They may never accept creatine, but a talk on protein, carbs, and fats should be easy enough to get through.
But yes, at the end of the day, you're going to have to accept their rules. That doesn't mean you can't get your protein from emptying their fridge

In situations where I'm dealing with someone who is obviously ignorant about a particular subject, I like to ask them for definitions and what they think is occurring in the subject at hand.
So in this case, ask your parents what they think protein is, where it can be found, and why they think it's detrimental. Do the same for creatine. Once you understand what their reservations are on the subject, you can more pointedly debunk their preconceived notions and educate them. The important thing to remember, though, is that this needs to be done rationally, not emotionally. Don't argue, just go in well prepared to relate to them what the actual facts are. Also remember that it's not about proving them wrong, it's about sharing information that can be mutually beneficial.
But then they are your parents, so whether or not they choose to accept your research is anybody's guess. I use to prove my mom wrong and get grounded for it.
