- That won’t stop until you move out.
- Nothing you say will make them change their perspective as long as you live there…you are the “kid”.
- Learn to ignore them and pay for your own food by getting a JOB.
- Move AWAY to college.
- Actually do something with your education while continuing to train. That will be the only way to prove “A person with muscles is a person with no brains” as a wrong statement.
I went through worse which is why I gained no weight at all until I got to college. Even though I worked from the age of 15 and bought much of my own food and supplements, I didn’t know how to cook (something I didn’t learn until I moved out). That led to me either eating fast food as a source of food intake or going hungry much of the time. My mom just started going to the gym this past year (remember, I was a personal trainer) while my dad will probably never go despite health problems. There is some truth to the saying that old people can’t change. Then again, my mom is on a whole fitness kick suddenly so maybe she was actually listening to some of it.[/quote]
ProfX hits it on the head.
Most of us here have poor role models as parents who learned something 20 years ago and think they know everything.
When I was a teen living at home my father would tell me that the only way to get big muscle was to eat a loaf of bread a day and all the potato/pasta/rice I could stomach.
Meat / protein was considered good only in small quanities IE if we had chicken you only got a leg or a thigh or one pork chop. This from a guy who was 80+lbs over weight, smoked 3 packs a day, drank 12 cups of coffee each morning with cream and 4 spoons of sugar, and never exercised.
Once you are on your own supporting yourself you can do what you want. Otherwise you will just have to make do like the rest of us did.
