Every time I drink protein shakes, I get dizzy as shit. Tired as fuck. I just feel horrible.
It consists of two scoops of some plant protein powder (orgain), banana, oats, peanut butter, yogurt, and milk.
Also not sure if related, but last time I went to the doctor they said everything was good besides high blood pressure.
Why the fuck is my blood pressure even high? I try to stay away from sugar btw because that also gets me insanely dizzy and tired.
Idk what the fuck is making me feel like shit, but it gets in the way of my training. On days I feel normal I can genuinely push myself, but when I'm like this, my workouts are ass tier (in my eyes. They are like normie level when I feel like trash).
Is the protein shake issue blood pressure related? How would you lower blood pressure if training and a decent diet isn't doing shit? I don't typically dirty bulk either. I eat some eggs, fruits, vegies, meat, etc. I keep my meals varied to get all the random ass vitamins in there.
Help me fix this retarded body

Is your blood pressure low normally?
No. Even in my teen years when I was a track star and in cross country (i.e. was heavy into cardio) I still had high blood pressure issues. I don't do cardio whatsoever now btw, but even when I did it didn't fix it.
I had high blood pressure through high school as well. Did football rugby and track. You have a girl that makes you nervous? For real my high blood pressure was related to a girl I was dating in addition to general stress and social anxiety.
I mean the reality is your body is telling you this is too much at once. so like, hammer it down a little.
But also, bottom line is you have high blood pressure thats impacting you life. talk to a legit doctor. I'm on 40mg of lisinopril and havent had high BP for the time i was on it.
doing a lot of cardio isnt necesarily healthy, or leads to low blood pressure for that matter.
a lot of "cutting edge" reseach in cardiology in fact attributes it to coronary blood vesels damage, and overall damage to blood vesells.
I've personally seen that when I do cardio my resting bpm lowers a lot, however blood pressure stays relatively high.
empirically I think it's similar to an engine. some engines are made to rev higher but have lower torque at lower rpms, and others have higher compression ratios, as such they put out more power at lower rpms, but arent made to rev so high because the reciprocating mass of the pistons combined with high compression would destroy it.
same with the heart, it beats slower but with more power (torque in my engine analogy) because it still needs to pump the same mass of blood through the volume of your entire body's circulatory system.
best thing you can do is to avoid know blood pressure increasers(coffee, alchool, cigarets, fatty food) and stay active. and sleep a lot

Have you considered not dumping all that in your body at once? Either spacing it out or consuming things separately?
If don't even want to ask how much water you drink of what your salt intake is.
>Have you considered not dumping all that in your body at once? Either spacing it out or consuming things separately?
Dumping it in all at once is the whole point of a shake.
Also I have been foregoing water. I should start to force myself to drink it more. As for salt, that is also non-existent. Maybe once a week I consume salt to put on tomatoes and pickles
>Dumping it in all at once is the whole point of a shake.
And you haven't considered that it might not be a good idea?
For your body digesting that is a huge effort which leads to the stomach bring prioritized.
Combine with that your low water intake, partial dehydration and subsequent thicker blood and you get higher blood pressure.
Both of which lead to dizziness.
>And you haven't considered that it might not be a good idea?
Again, the whole point of a shake is to load up on your calories and proteins in particular. My goal is to continue bulking. No, I'm not going to stop the shakes because then I wouldn't be able to reach a surplus in calories.
I will drink a shitton more water though
*calories and proteins
Bulking is near impossible without loading up on shakes
Then you've gotta live with the dizziness buddey.
Have you thought of, you know, not taking that particular type of protein?
That protein isn't relevant to me feeling like shit. If I took whey, I'd still feel the same
>How would you lower blood pressure if training and a decent diet isn't doing shit?
The problem here is that you probably do not have a decent diet and training.
except I do, numbnuts
no you dont gay
How many bananas (plus other fruits) are you eating? How often? Too much potassium will upset your electrolyte balance and make your blood pressure swing around. Odds are that your ancestors ate salted meat as a staple food for hundreds of years and not fucking bananas and purina pea protein blend. As far as avoiding sugar goes, if you are eating a lot of fruit you are probably getting more sugar than you think you are. I’ve seen “fruititarians” who thought they had cleverly replicated a pure and superior garden of eden diet who lost all feeling in their feet due to slow rolling diabetes.
1 a day (with the shake)
And ya.. I need to watch the sugar. I seem to be too sensitive to it.
