    Yes soy or no soy products?

    I see we have a variety of opinion on soy during the diet. I'm currently going to try avoiding soy, because of the estrogen in it. I read in Pounds and Inches that any hormones taken can mess with your gain/loss.

    I'm sure it's different for everyone, but has anyone done, no soy one phase, some soy another phase? Did it make a difference for you?

    I'm chomping at the bit to get started! I'm so full of questions I can't wait to be able to answer them for myself!
    Draw in the calm and persevere! We can all do this!





    Doing the cleanse with ReNew Life "Flush and Be Fit" before starting, I look forward to joining everyone, and matching your great results!

    For me it's no soy. I have a thyroid problem so I haven't touched soy in years except if it's in a food I didn't catch in time. Apparently if varies with people. Some people have no problem losing weight with soy but some gain. You'll have to try it and see if it works for you.

    I find I stay much more stable in P3 when I avoid soy. Soy isn't on protocol for P2 at all.

    No soy!

    Soy is not a health food! It's been pushed for years as a health food, but soy is mimics estrogen inside the body and does more harm than good. Also, read labels on processed foods. Nearly everything contains soy as a filler. As a practice, I don't even eat soy in P3 or beyond. Switch to almond milk and find other sources of protein such as lentils and legumes.

    Thanks for saying that peaceveg. It seems everytime I say something like that I get attacked (not on these forums) so I've been keeping quiet about some things.

    I need to remember this too when I get hungry and it seems I have no other options but soy I just need to stick to it no soy! I have only 1/2 thyroid and MONSANTO! and it is not a great thing for any body.

    Two quick questions..

    I have a low thyroid...how does soy affect it? And aren't lentils and legumes off the list for the P2 part of the diet?

    It depresses the thyroid. Bad for most of us with weight problems. Yes, all that stuff is off limits for P2.

    the original soy studies were only for fermented soy,,, miso.
    somehow that turned into massive soy everywhere. I like raw tofu or cooked tofu, but I belive tofu is fermeted? like miso.
    or p4 I will eat some miso, tofu, but avoid all other soy products.

    I think thats what we are avoiding,, straight soy, but I would do an internet search for more info, my info was fermeted was ok.
    I know M Pollan has considered the contamination link of the meat food chain in America by corn and soy fed to cows. It then goes into our food chain and is one of the possible reasons for the obesisty in america, the cows are not grass fed.

    Fermented soy is ok in small amounts. I believe the fermentation does something to the soy so it doesn't effect the thyroid, but all other forms of soy is a NO NO. Very bad for the thyroid
