I know where he is coming from, due to misinformation at my school taking creatine has become comparable to taking steroids. Sadly, everyone believes it, so I don’t even bother convinving people otherwise.
Yeah I just mix some and drink up. Nothing you can do about the collective ignorance of the masses.
Luckily I don’t have the choice of taking creatine anyway, because like Padilla I went through constant arguements and fights with my dad over taking pure whey.
My parents made me earn the right to take supplements. They wouldn’t let me take any at first and didn’t give me a reason why. I couldn’t understand it; they’re both registered nurses and know the value of protein and creatine (they aren’t idiots like many in their profession).
So, I did some research and explained how it would help me out as far as getting stronger and becoming a better football player, which is what I lived for during high school. After I gave then a spiel about the benefits of both, they bought me some. They just wanted me to know what I was putting in my body. Clever people.[/quote]
My parents are both just classic cases of “Toxic People.” They’re both terribly unsupportive of my goals and I get yelled at for trying to eat healthy.
My dad has tunnel vision when it comes to protein, and he picked one random type of whey and that’s all I’m allowed to drink. I spent hours doing research one day, and found out about all the useless/junk ingredients that the brand used, compared it to Metabolic Drive, basically made a whole presentation and ended up getting grounded because of it.
