I agree with Purp - read up on nutrition before you approach your parents. Understand that you will probably have to be pro-active and help with meal planning, cooking and clean-up. I would also suggest that you plan to be very appreciative of any help your parents give you, and don't complain if they don't think this is a good idea. It may take a while to win them over. It may take baby steps, but be mature, positive and keep your sense of humor. Good luck!
