  2. i have no problem using soy protein, or protein blends with soy in them.

    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.

    You really think it's a big concern this soy protein?
    Noticed you said 5g, most proteins have way more than 5g in them even if it's a blend

    Could use pea protein too.

  7. 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.

    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

    ^ 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  24. 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.
