Can that be a pick-me-up when your energy is low? Yes. But if you're hypoglycemic pre diabetic or not eating a balanced diet, it's a short term solution to a long term problem and ultimately won't help. If by bad you mean unhealthy, not in moderation. ...Read more

Yes: You have symptoms associated with the low blood pressure. Good to hear you are drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet. I would see your MD for an orthostatic blood pressure test and if it's positive consider seeing a Cardiologist for a tilt table test.

Are veggie sausages containing soya protein isolate n soya protein bad to eat say if u had 4 would that be too much soya. Also chocolate in one day?

But TVP is highly manufactured and subjected to high heat etc in processing. TVP causes GI side effects in some people and is reported to mimic estrogen effects in women. Most also contains MSG. Can not really call it a health food..OK in moderation/2-3 servings per day. ...Read more
