    i just got back from the doctor's and my blood pressure is still kinda on the high side (140/90). i've been eating clean and exercising (soccer training 3 times a week, HIIT 3 times a week) for over a year now. i've started weight training pretty much the same time which is when i started with protein shakes. i've had my blood tested and everything seems to be fine with the exception of the blood pressure. anyways, the doctor said i should try reducing my protein intake and see if that lowers it. any of you guys heard this?

    Never heard of that. Maybe protein intake has be linked to high blood pressure because people who usually get lots of protein eat lots of seasoned fatty meat and packaged meals full of sodium. :dunno:

    Sounds like you are in the same boat as me. My BP was at about the same level as yours, but everything looked good with my blood work and my lifestyle was decent (no smoking, exercising, eating fairly well).

    I'd guess it's just a genetic thing. Talk to your doc and have him prescribe a beta blocker. I'm on 25mg of atenolol which seems to be taking care of it.
