  2. For that matter........who ever said we "hated" the soy protein?......I would term it more as a "strong dislike" for soy protein. bordering on hate, but that is just too strong of a word.

    But you got the original point right?

    I actually hate it, but I wanted to placate any possible soy protein loving board sponsors/members so they did not have to come up in here and defend themselves....remember visalus? and how that turned out? Do we need another Visalus disaster, this time about defending the honor of soy? lol

    nothing wrong with plant based proteins. just dont get all crazy, using 50mg of soy, instead of whey an other forms.

    but 5g of soy or w/e isn't going to hurt you.
    ^ This

    People have the tendency to over exaggerate things. Soy is fine just keep it to a minimal and dont make it your main protein source.

    Soy increases AMPK activity. AMPK inhibits mTOR.

    PMID: 18420492

    But if I may point out, the above is a study using mice. In order for soy (or any other phytoestrogens) to do what it did in the above study you would need to figure out how much soy would be an equivalent amount for humans. So the question then becomes, how much soy does a human really need to consume in order to activate AMPK? Also, if adding something like extra BCAAs or whey to the soy be enough to counter the AMPK and its effect on mTOR?

    Again, as I said in my earlier post, as long as soy isnt you main protein source then getting minimal amounts here and there arent going to have a huge negative effect IMO

    Also, for what its worth, AMPK will also increase fat oxidation. Within that study above it showed large losses in body fat mass and not fat free mass.

    I have heard recent talk about soy containing something inhibits protein synthesis. I cannot remember what it was called. Regardless, you don't hear people contemplating and arguing about whey.....so why not just buy whey protein? Its cheap enough and tried and true.

    I'll tell you,over the decades I've heard from A to Z about soy....the phtyoestrogens and flavones occupy estrogen receptors so the real estrogen can't occupy it, so it's good for men.....then you hear it acts like an estrogen at the receptor and men should avoid it.....it's a decent source of protein quality, then its a shyt source of quality protein....Then there are negative things like you mention thrown around about it... yada yada, you never know WHAT to make of soy protein. Like you say, why bother with it? there is whey, egg, casein powders galore and we know what they are all about for 100% sure.

    Exactly much better sources out there....even plant wise there are better sources

    its funny you mention AMPK, ALA increases AMPK in muscles, but not in hypothalmus. ALA does the same thing.

    Use Leucine when using plant based proteins since their leucine content is lower then animal or milk based protein,

    If you happen to remember, please share.


    In the meantime this is another reason for not having soy as a main source of protein

    Serum testosterone decreased 19%(+/-22%) during the 4-week use of soy protein powder (P = 0.021) and increased within 2 weeks after we discontinued soy protein powder-PMID 17416779

    Honestly if egg protein was cheaper I think it would be the superior choice out of all of them. Whey is just convenient and cheap.

    What about with berberine?

    I know berberine also activates AMPK

    pretty much what I said

  16. berberine does the same as well.

    a lot do. however overall benefical effect plus most of our overconsumption of protein make this worry non existent.

  17. because the amino acid ratio is much lower and proteins from meat content get absorbed the best, then dairy, then plant...that's why meat proteins are so popular

    Thx.


    Everyone had good advice and great answers...
    I think I have a decent grasp on what to do know thx

  19. Just finished a container of soy based protein powder and I'll never use it again. I tried it because it was half the price of comparably protein rich whey blends but I had a few issues... It mixed terribly and tasted awful but felt lighter in my stomach than whey blends usually do. I would recommend staying away from it. We are at the top of the food chain. We might as well enjoy our animal products. I think whey is the way to go.

  21. The main reason why I brought this thread up is because MHP their macrobrolic meal replacements and Up Your Mass which appear to be the same list that they use super pro soy....

    Why would they push that so heavily in the lifting community if people feel ill about it.
    It makes me think of a vegetarian bodybuilder who gets his protein from plants/beans

  22. Maybe they put a combo of all proteins in there, egg, milk, whey, soy so you get the benefit of each of them. If so, then soy should be lowest on the list (in the ingredients list section)....If soy is higher than the other proteins its probably due to them using it as cheap filler protein. As many have said on here, if you use like 10% or less of your protein intake from soy you should be OK with those products. Just be sure there isn't a lot of soy on there. But yeah, why add soy at all....reason you should see if its high on the list and they are using it basically as a cheap protein source.

    I'm reading the lable: it's their "probolic" blend with "supro" soy protein, whey, and casein... And yeah soy comes first....

    Ok, that equals NOT GOOD, bullsh1t product. Soy should be last if on there at all. Supro is just a quality brand name for soy, and it should not be first on the ingredients list. Its not gonna kill you or fuq you up mind you, if you bought it then just use it....but as far as in the future goes, I'd not re-up on it. On protein blend products, ALWAYS look at the ingredient list and make sure the better higher quality proteins are listed first and middle, and the lower quality are listed last (if at all).

    Right... I know how the label works carbs are of oats and barley and oat fiber that's the first ingredient which is great.... Then soy and the other proteins...

    Take a look at MHP up your mass.
    Or MHP macrobolic.
    I wonder why they chose soy though.

    Its cheap and they save tons of money using soy as the bulk of the protein as opposed to more expensive whey or egg or casein. Then they hope people don't read the ingredient label, and just see the "50 GRAMS OF PROTEIN!" or whatever the amount is, and think OK good lol.......

    the carb source is good, but again....the carbs are cheap too. as compared to protein. So they probably don't care what carb they use since its all relatively cheap for them, and i guess they figure to use the better carb source to keep people from investigating the protein sources lol.

    yeah makes sense.
    I was looking for a good MRP powder.
    I looked at universal uni syn and I may give that go much higher in protein & quality but maltodextrin for carbs... but only 24g of them.
