Do you drink soy milk?
 
A little OT, butI just learned that many reserachers believe it elevates estrogen levels in men (which could explain a lot...:)) .
I use(d) it as a base for protein shakes pretty much daily as well as with cereal 2-3 days a week. Even if it's only slightly, I'm the kind of guy that doesn't need even an extra microgram of female hormones in his bloodstream.
anyone else heard this, believe it/don't believe it, started menstruating...etc?

Yup, but only because the kitchen at work has the soy milk right next to the cup dispenser. The milk is about 5 feet away - cant be bothered to walk. Besides I have the milk in my cereal (yup you guessed it, coz the cereal plates are near the milk).

I would be willing to bet you could drink soy milk every day and the effects are marginal.

don't worry, our tap water is filled with estrogen from the anti-conception pills.
There's also estrogen boosted cow milk so the cow gets more milk.
and the soy estrogen isn't real estrogen, just similar.

Eh, I drink it occasionally, but not enough to affect any hormone levers. :eek:

Wested 08-08-08 05:48 PM

I've tried it... can't stand the taste. Give me whole milk, baby.

Soy proteins are pretty much pointless. Why bother, unless you're lactose intolerant, then why bother anyway. They're still incomplete protein chains.

Everything you eat or drink has to be a complete protein? That's silly. :rolleyes:

Don't know if you've heard but there are some people in this world who choose not to rely on animals for their nourishment.

i guess now he knows... you gotta learn sometime.

PS i highly doubt soy milk can do anything bad - real milk has way more bad stuff in it (hormones, blood, etc) than soy milk/water does.

Eat a bagel with it? The essential aminos missing in beans are in excess in grains.

I don't drink much soy milk, but soy is a complete protein.

entukay 08-08-08 06:33 PM

i drink it because i can buy it warm, and don't have to buy it as frequently. plus it takes longer to go bad. thats really the only reason.

plumberroy 08-08-08 06:39 PM

No. I have not figured how to milk a soybean:(
I generally won't eat or drink anything I could not make ,raise,grow or process myself .Plus I'm not a vegatarian and not latose intolerate

Umm, no.

Each protein is given a numerical rating as to it's quality. The NPU for soy is 61,
which is good. If your diet includes the other amino acids, they will complete the amino acid profile and you will have a high quality diet. I buy gluten, which is pure wheat protein; because it will do that as well as providing extra glutamine for the muscles to munch on.

Cyclist burn a lot of a few amino acids; and any protein that has them will be used.

Lastly, while cyclists need a quality diet, they aren't weight lifters. They don't need a lot of extra protein.

And just FYI, the plant hormones are mostly in the fat. Soy protein powder is nothing to worry about as far as that is concerned. As far as plant estrogens in
other soy products are concerned, there is some disagreement. I think I feel better without them, but it could easily be psychological.

Yeah - soy milk has female hormones but dairy milk has female COW hormones!

Yes I do, and it doesn't make me feel or act like a girl.

It's the first rule of a politically correct society. For any product, idea, method, convention, tradition, or practice, there will be someone who will try to profit from trying to demonize it.

If it's food, eat it. It won't hurt you.

plumberroy 08-08-08 07:22 PM

I went and looked up how to make soy milk. looks pretty simple . but since I'm not a vegatarian and not latose intolerate, I'll stick with real milk the only thing I use it for is cereal and a little in my hot tea. only milk fit to just drink comes from some one who is not under FDA regs.

buzzman 08-08-08 07:51 PM

I drink it. I drink a lot of the Silk Mocha, love it.

And I eat Luna bars too!:eek: (the only nutrition bar designed specifically for women) I like 'em way better than Clif bars and Power bars.

I am now an official girly man.:rolleyes:
