Hi, I have a bit of a problem and this seemed like the right place to ask for some advice. I've been vegan for five years and I'm currently very poor, as in barely-eating poor, and I've found that the only way for me to get the recommended amount of protein is to buy Whole Foods brand soy protein powder in bulk and eat it plain. I've never been particularly health conscious (not great for a vegan, I know) and I just recently found out that it has been suggested by several studies that too much soy protein in the diet can cause problems, specifically thyroid problems which I know are very unpleasant. I can't afford any other types of protein as I can barely afford this, and I know I'm not getting enough protein otherwise because I start getting really intense meat cravings when I stop eating the powder. So my question is: Too much soy protein or not enough protein? Which is worse?
