Very Very Bad

Sugar is the enemy. There is a pinch of protein in Soy milk, but the rest of the smoothie you are ingesting is nearly one hundred percent sugar or carbohydrates. This is the worst kind of calories to be ingesting if you want to lose weight. Sugar is the Enemy. Repeat once more: Sugar is the enemy.

There is no scientific evidence that dietary soy food (milk, tofu, ect...) is linked to the development of breast cancer in women or men. And it does not cause lumps in men's breasts. If a man has a lump in his breast, he should immediately go see his doctor for an assessment. Breast cancer does develop in men, albeit much less common than in women.

Calorie economics

Soy milk does not cause weight gain anymore than other food (including regular milk). Weight gain occurs when the total calorie intake exceeds the calories consumed by the body in activities, leading to storing away of the calories. In general, calories from all food sources not used are turned to fat and stored for later use. Portion control is important. Avoid drinking too much soy milk.
