cp31109: How can I convince my father to allow me to take whey protein?
I’m 14 yrs old. After considering all effects of whey protein, my father won’t allow me to take it. I have assured him that it’s safe, how can I persuade him kindly, for me to take it.
Also, for a teenager who’s of medium build looking to get bigger what would be a good supplement to take?
The most specific the better!

Tell him AJ took whey protein at 14 and has been healthy and physically fit for 30 yrs since!
Tell him it’s made from milk just like cream is.
Tell him it’s a naturally occurring product.
Good luck buddy!

There’s nothing wrong with whey protein. It’s just a milk derivative. It’s not like you’re taking steroids to bulk up. The only logical reason I can see for telling a boy your age to not use it is if there’s something else going on.
At your age, you should not be doing aggressive weight training. The plates in your bones are not sealed yet and you can do permanent damage to your skeletal structure. Also, if you are overweight (sorry, hon), it is a source of calories you probably don’t need.
If you are trying to bulk up, don’t. It all turns to fat, and the younger you are when you do that, the more likely you are to add fat cells permanently to your body, which can be an issue when you are well past college age.

If you’re 14 and live with your parents you should do what they say, even if it’s a little silly. You’re not losing out too much. If you pick healthy foods and work out you’ll see good results. It’s not like this protein supplement will make or break your workouts. Don’t get too hung up on it.
