Thoughs on Soy?

I've already started eating the Morningstar buffalo wings and burgers. I've got the soy milk regular and chocolate (just like yoo-hoo). Edamame is the best. I've just heard that too much soy is not good for guys. My other protein will be coming from Muscle milk and ON whey gold complex, canned tuna, beef jerky, occasional chick-fil-a sandwich. I'm doing my best to stay away from all soda and fast food.

if people come on here tryin to say it ups your estrogen, don't listen. man boobs come from idiots who don't know how to cycle. there is no solid evidence to support this claim. i don't use it personally because it tears up my stomach. but it's almost as good as whey, just not as many bcaa's.

edemame (sp?) is good, but I can't stand most soy products.

There is decent evidence that soy can manipulate several hormones in your body, including estrogen. It's nowhere near proven, but still enough to keep me away from it. Whey is a better protein source anyway.

Doesn't affect me like that at all. I suppose I'll pick up a bottle of Oxo-6 just to be on the safe side.

whey and casein blends are the best. but everything you eat manipulates your hormones. 8 ounces of red meat ups your testosterone, and a glass of o.j. can skyrocket your insulin. a sweet potato has enough dhea to make a noticeable difference. plus it's urinary estrogen that gets increased, which helps against prostate problems. like i said, i can't use it, but some people can't digest whey and soy is a great alternative.

95% of my protein intake comes from either soy or vegetable protein. I eat the Gardenburger Riblets (you HAVE to try those - they are FANTASTIC!!) and Morningstar products almost everyday.

And yes, edemame rocks.

Nah Im not allergic to anything, it is just the powder that does it to me. Really, any protein powder can do that to you. Casein is the longest digested, so it is recommended for use before bedtime when you are fasting through sleep.
