Is Soy Helping You Get A Lean Body? (the healthy, or unhealthy health food?)

Who doesn’t want a lean body. But, is soy a good health food choice to help you with your weight loss goals?

==>> Do Soy Foods Make You Fat?

It was around 6:30 AM. When one of my long-time friends and I drove through a Starbucks a couple of days ago.

(Bless her heart) But for the sake of this story, you need to know that there’s no way to deny that she’s quite obese, and has been all of her adult life.

I saw first hand that not only does she prefer the most caloric, sugary and dangerous transfat laden coffee drinks, but since she is lactose intolerant, she opts to use soy milk instead of dairy.

I of course said nothing since I do not preach to my friends or to anyone who is not interested to learn about this stuff. Instead, I calmly ordered my plain, Americano and added a touch of steamed half and half to mine.

Now, my wonderful friend has had serious health issues resulting from her life-long obesity. And I wonder how much can be attributed to her falsely held belief that soy is a healthy alternative.

I also know that she like so many others hold on to their misguided eating habits with religious fervor. No way am I going to get in to this conflict.

What is so unhealthy about soy?

Where do I begin…

For some of you hearing about this for the first time, this will be shocking and disturbing (sorry about that) since you may use soy milk (the most popular nondairy drink in the US) every day.

You may eat soy burgers, soy cheese, ice-cream, and everything in between.

Especially for those who are vegetarians. Now what protein source are you to use?

Un fermented soy has been highly promoted as a “health food” for 20 or perhaps 30 years. And most people think that it’s healthy and even virtuous since it is not animal based.

But, when you see the results of many studies you learn that soy is known to contain an array of powerfully dangerous chemical toxins. Food manufacturers don’t remove these potent toxins. So, high levels of chemicals like:

  •       phytic acid
  •       trypsin inhibitors
  •       toxic lysinoalanine,
  •       highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.

All of these unheard of nasty sounding chemicals are in your soy products that you have in your kitchen right now. If you want to read more details about these compounds, scroll down to read more details.

Check this out…

Let’s talk about just one common dangerous chemical you will find in many products including infant formula…

Phytoestrogens. These are powerful chemicals that disrupt endocrine function and are potent antithyroid agents.

One shocking discovery I found was that soy is widely used in baby formula. Infants exclusively fed soy-based formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula.

This adds up to the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day. This in an tiny infants body?

This is just wrong…

Also alarming is the discovery that premature development of girls has been linked to the use of soy formula, as has the underdevelopment of males.

What is healthy to eat anymore?

If you are frustrated at this point, I don’t blame you. But there are many food items you can have and feed your family. You can lose weight and get lean without unhealthy diets, and eating dangerous processed soy or other packaged food items.

The best healthy eating plan I know of is to simply avoid all packaged and processed food. Just eat whole, natural food. Mostly plant based with some animal products such as organic pasture raised eggs, wild Alaskan salmon, and a small amount of meat as long as it is from a trusted source that raises and produces grass fed meat.

I think it’s also smart to rely on the nutritional information from trusted sources that disseminate information that is based on unbiased scientific research.

One of my trusted sources of unbiased nutrition info is Mike Geary author of Truth About Abs.

I know you care about your health and nutrition as much as you care about getting a lean body. This is why you need to
