I am 16 and wanted to buy whey protein powder. MY mom found out, spoke to a dietian who said that at most i need around 80 grams per day( I weigh 151 lbs)
if I take more, I’ll get kidney damage etc. soo now I’m not allowed to get anything until my mom gets the articles the dietian said showed how it caused damage. If anyone has any information or articles explaining please post them.
I want to buy micellular casein (for before bed) and BCAA’s. Just want to know if this are worth the money?[/quote]
The “dietian” is WRONG!
Here is the article by Dr. John Berardi on protein and kidney function. I’m pretty sure that Dr. Berardi is far more qualified, educated and experienced than the “dietian” your mom spoke to.
Here is another article with referenced studies by Dr. Berardi. I think this one is more appropriate for your needs.

Print these out and show them to your mom and the “dietian”.
