What time should I drink soy milk everyday?

What time should I drink soy milk everyday?

Why drink soy?: Unless you are on certain medications (e.g. Doxycycline, thyroid supplements, etc) you probably don't need to time the soy milk intake.

16 female trying to lose weight. Sometimes after dinner I drink smoothie of 4 oz soy milk, 1 banana, 1 tbsp unsweet cocoa and 2 tsp sugar. Is this bad?

Very Very Bad: Sugar is the enemy. There is a pinch of protein in soy milk, but the rest of the smoothie you are ingesting is nearly one hundred percent sugar or carbohydrates.
