Re: Non-soy vegan diet is just too difficult

A lot of legumes and grain contain phylates. That's not soy specific. A lot of other foods contain one or more of the phytoestrogens. That's not soy specific as well. But they are easily removed by cooking unlike soy. With soy you have to ferment it in order to rid of the massive more amount of che...

Re: Non-soy vegan diet is just too difficult

Ok, update time. So I went ahead and did a second blood test as my doctor requested it to confirm if I was having T troubles. Turns out it was much higher this time (435 ng), so he no longer can provide treatment as it is in normal levels now. I still wish it was higher. You guys are right in saying...

Re: SOY YOGURT, nonfermented soy. Soy Myths - Dr. Marcola

Over the past month, I've just suddenly realized this as well. Without tofu and soy protein isolate, it makes the vegan diet oh so stale. Soy was the only thing keeping me strong on the vegan diet, but without it I don't know how to eat mixed meals anymore. It's either PB+J, beans and rice, beans an...

Non-soy vegan diet is just too difficult

Welp, let's get started. I just my blood test results back last week, and I found out that I have low testosterone (320ng). Being a guy this explains why I feel so craptastic all the time being only 23. Over the past year I have dealt with fatigue issues despite, and lately I'm often in a grumpy moo...

Re: I am so sick of soy.

Yep, what Fallen said. Your soy intake is quite excessive; and beware of the health risks(supposed affected hormone levels, and thyroid problems). Try to chuck in more calories from non-high protein products, and be creative with the diet. It's not that a vegan bodybuilder's diet is bland, but its ...

Re: I am so sick of soy.

Dropping veganism so you can potentially shed a little extra bodyfat?? Don't think you'll get much sympathy here. If you're cutting in earnest I'd drop the builder bars, drop the bread & maybe even reduce the fruit (from what I understand BBers on 'keto' stlye diets stay away from fruit). Have ...

I am so sick of soy.

Hello everyone, I just finished a half of block of tofu with some soy sausage patties while nearly gagging. Bulking is great for vegans since we get a large variety of foods to get calories and protein from, but when it comes to cutting my diet consists of 80% soy whether it is coming from soy prote...
